Starting from the known relations, the paper presents the design and implementation of digital manufacturing using an integrated virtual prototype CAD_CAE_CAM. After determining the numerical values for the dimensions of the elements which compose the Geneva mechanism, the data are used in the CAD application in order to make 3D models. So, the obtained model is transferred to the CAM module that performs the tool paths. After postprocessing the data, it is obtained the CNC program for the
