Abstract : The challenge of the 80's for CAD/CAM(Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) systems is to integrate proven CAD/CAM techniques with the system advances of this decade. The Hybrid CAD/CAM System (UNIS*CAD) concepts and future developments address this issue of integration. This paper presents more detail about the Hybrid System's core (the Graphic Interface, the Data Interface, and the Computer Systems Interface), presents the Part Descriptor (Design) application which unifies the two dissimilar parents; the surface and volumetric modelers, and presents other applications and user facilities available and planned for the UNIS*CAD, Hybrid CAD/CAM System.
