At least in the United States, there is a shortage of young, skilled machinists entering the workforce able to perform at the extremes of manufacturing; high precision and mass production.

As CAM software and machines become more complicated, the skills required of a machinist or machine operator advance to approach that of a computer programmer and engineer rather than eliminating the CNC machinist from the workforce.

Fallows created the first CAD software but this had severe shortcomings and was promptly taken back into the developing stage.

CAM software would output code for the least capable machine, as each machine tool control added on to the standard G-code set for increased flexibility.

The modern machinery cannot be properly used without this assistance.

Today's CAM systems support the full range of machine tools including: turning, 5 axis machining and wire EDM.

In milling, the result often gives the appearance of terraces, because the strategy has taken advantage of the ability to cut the model horizontally.

Common strategies are zig-zag clearing, offset clearing, plunge roughing, rest-roughing.

Usually it had been necessary to force the CAD operator to export the data in one of the common data formats, such as IGES or STL or Parasolid formats that are supported by a wide variety of software.
