CAD: Computer Aided Design

Read more

The acronym CAD stands for Computer Aided Design. The process of creating product graphics using computer software. Both two and three dimensional drawings can be produced. CAD allows manufacturers to save costs and time by automating the design process and providing quick and easy access to standardized and existing parts. This simplifies the editing and modification of product designs. CAD is used in almost all technical fields including architecture, civil engineering, manufacturing and many others.

The principles of computer aided design
CAD is carried out in several steps: First, the preliminary design of the product is conceived. This involves analyzing requirements, preparing various solutions and evaluating them. This step is followed by the actual design. A true-to-scale design is produced based on the proposed solutions. Finally, the details are incorporated. For example this step involves adding drawings of individual parts to be used for the product.
