Computer Aided Design (CAD) is a software used for design documentation and mechanical designing. CAD software is used as an alternative for manual drafting method and it is an automated method of mechanical designing. The CAD software facilitates manufacturing and development process by providing detailed diagram of the product and information regarding product’s materials, tolerances, dimensions with conventions etc. The main applications of CAD software include creation of product layout, conceptual design and analysis of manufacturing and assembly processes. They are also used in preparation of environment based impact reports, where the CAD generated designs are used to produce rendering of appearance of the new structures, when they are built. The user interface used to generate designs are mouse, digital graphic tablet, digital pen etc.
CAD Market: Drivers and Restraints
The adoption of CAD design platform in various manufacturing industries and disciplines to generate models and drawings is the major driver for the growth of global CAD market.
