An insight into CAD and its uses

Computer Aided Design (CAD) software can be adapted to create system components and structures such as circuit boards and mobile phones. The primary application of CAD is for drafting and designing, meaning there are numerous advantages of using these systems in many different types of industrial organisations.

Firstly, CAD enables a company to make templates to use again and again. A component can be designed and saved for future reference. This also means copies can be created easily and efficiently. If the use has an idea for the development of a design he/she can modify the design rather than starting from scratch and using expensive resources. Products can be mass-produced on a low-cost scale, therefore it is so much easier for supply to meet demand in the industry.

Accuracy is vastly improved with CAD and, as a result, errors are greatly reduced. Human error is almost eradicated when using CAD to design a component. If the design created by the worker is accurate then it is up to the CAD machine to accurately design the product.

The CAD paperwork means the geometries and dimensions of a design can be safely stored for future use and reference. For product specifications data such as colour tones and shape can also be stored on the design. When creating a new or similar product to an old one the user can refer to previous designs and follow the specifications available to mass-produce similar items.

CAD software enables the designer to visualise the final product, as well as to analyse and document the design. Conclusively, the productivity of the designer is increased and the long-term efficiency of the business is increased.

CAD is revolutionary in that it can help a company mass-produce sturdy, quality designs. Customers will see your firm as a reliable source of quality products and components and this will ensure repeat business. Resource wastage is drastically minimized and you are left with a viable and economical production technique.
