CAD Drawing

In many industries CAD is used in projects for the process of creating a technical drawing using computer software – allowing for improved quality of design, improved planning through documentation and a physical visible representation of the finished product. CAD drawing is often much more than simple shapes or drawings however, and can include the drafting of further information such as materials required, processes carried out, dimensions and tolerations.

Many businesses hire the services of an outsourced CAD company who can help design figures in two-dimensional space or complete solids in three-dimensional spaces. 2D and 3D CAD drawing services can be an excellent solution for projects in numerous industries from aerospace to civil engineering, automobile manufacturing and many more. CAD drawing is also widely used for the production of computer animation for special effects in cinematography and for advertising. The goal of a CAD drawing is usually to increase efficiency and allow for an accurate representation of the intended final product, with information to help throughout the projects design.

Uses of CAD

Computer Aided Design, or CAD for short is the designing and developing of products such as buildings, bridges, motorways, aircrafts, ships, cars, cameras, phones, televisions, clothing, and many more through the use of computers. CAD is used throughout the design process from the theoretical design or layout right through to the engineering of the components. There are numerous fields which use CAD including but not limited to: Architecture, Industrial Design, Engineering, Agricultural Design, Construction, Aerospace, Automotive and Consumer Goods.

In these fields CAD usually refers to the technical drawing of the project, using a computer instead of traditional practices such as drawing boards. There are many specialist software and pre-existing component drawings which are used by the operator to produce drawings and specifications that are later used to estimate the materials required to complete the project before ultimately producing the product. CAD is also used in civil engineering for the design of roads, sites, drainage and mapping and it is often used by interior designers to provide a detailed visual design to customers for a more precise image of what the project will look like on completion.

If you work in any of these industries and have a project, no matter what size, outsourcing to a professional CAD services company can speed up the development of your project. DATS CAD Services are a flexible outsourcing resource for all your 2D and 3D drawing requirements and their team of highly experienced experts are fully equipped to handle any project.
