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.
