Renishaw's highly successful CAD/CAM system uses GML at its core

However, Renishaw achieved its ambitious timescales in part by being able to call upon the GML as the core foundations needed for the CAD/CAM software it required to glue the hardware system. The result is a solution for every lab ranging from single scanner, plus CAD/CAM software, plus cutting solution and furnace; through to a full in-lab system with multiple milling machines – either sited locally in lab or supplied as a central manufacturing capability by Renishaw with scanned jobs being submitted via the internet.
