CAD (Computer Aided Design), like much computer technology, is now more advanced than ever. Its relatively brief history begins in the 1970s, when the cost benefit of CAD quickly became apparent to companies. Over the past 40 years, it has become an invaluable part of engineering drafting, so much so that it’s often taken for granted.
With benefits such as lower product development costs and a greatly shortened design cycle, CAD enables designers to layout and develop work on screen, quickly and easily. They can then print it out and save it for future editing, significantly saving time on drawings.
In the 21st century it’s possible to create designs so thorough, they eliminate risks almost entirely. This is down to the massive advancements in 3D CAD technology. It’s now possible to use advanced rendering and animation capabilities to better visualise product/architectural designs in incredible detail. It can be used throughout the engineering process, from conceptual design and layout of products, through to the dynamic analysis of assemblies and manufacturing methods of components.
