Abstract The potential of additive manufacturing is increasingly investigated with regard to an application in combination with milling processes. However, for an economical use of this hybrid method, workpieces must be produced cost-efficiently and at the same time meet high quality requirements. In this paper, a combination of additive and subtractive technologies is presented, by which the demanded accuracies can be achieved. To further decrease currently high planning efforts, an existing CAM system is extended by modules for creating additional additive manufacturing steps. In this context, requirements for such a hybrid CAM system and its realization are derived and presented.
