Abstract
A CAD/CAM system is described in which a Data General MV4000 computer serves as a hardware platform for Unigraphics software. A paper tape punch facility is replaced by a floppy disk file storage system. Commands for storing, editing and reading files on the floppy disk are described, and the file structure required for a Matsuura CNC machine and Fanuc controller are included. The device also replaces the tape reader on the CNC machine by means of a parallel port.
