What is CAD/CAM?
You might hear the term CAD/CAM from time to time. It is basically a merging of the two pieces. A software manufacturer tries to pick up more marketshare by doing this. They also keep you locking into their "system" by going with the whole package at once.
A lot of the time, this is a good thing. Same or similar interface on both pieces of software. Quick flow between pieces and easy file management. You have to evaluate it for yourself though. There are many times in life where two or more tools are combined to produce a less then stellar result.
