WHAT IS CAD DESIGN?
CAD (Computer Aided Design) is the use of computer software to design and document a product’s designing process. Engineering drawing involves the use of graphical symbols like points, lines, curves, planes, and shapes. Most importantly, one gets a detailed description of any component in a graphical form.
CAD is a great tool to accomplish preliminary design and layouts, design details and calculations, creating 3D product design, creating and releasing drawings, as well as interfacing with analysis, marketing, manufacturing, and end-user personnel. CAD enables the manufacturing process by transferring detailed information about the product in an automated form that can be universally interpreted. CAD can produce either two-dimensional or three-dimensional diagrams. The use of CAD software tools allows the object to be viewed from every possible angle, even from the inside looking out.
WHY CHOOSE CAD DESIGN?
The CAD software helps the designer in visualizing the final product. The product can also be given animation and see how the actual product will work, thus helping the designer to make the necessary modifications. CAD software helps the designer in synthesizing, analysing, and documenting the design. All these factors help in drastically improving 3D product design, lower designing cost and shorten the turnaround time too.
The other important part after designing is making the drawings. With CAD software, better and standardized drawings can be made easily. The CAD software helps in better documentation of the design, fewer errors, and greater legibility.
All the data used for designing can be saved and used for future reference, this helps in saving time when it comes to creating similar products in the future. Similarly, the drawings can also be saved and any number of copies can be printed whenever required.
