Did you know?
- Patrick J. Hanratty is considered the father of CAD/CAM. While working for General Electric in 1957, he came up with PRONTO (Program for Numerical Tooling Operations), the first commercial CNC programming system.
- Hanratty developed ADAM in 1971, “the first commercially available integrated, interactive graphics design, drafting, and manufacturing system.” Most CAD programs owe a debt to ADAM.
