“Design is a journey to Discovery”

Computer aided design or computer aided drawing, in short CAD, is a computer program made specifically for designing, drafting, and development of a product.These programs are used to draw 2D& 3D drawings of a product or part of a product.It is very familiar term among engineering students and it is playing a great role in the development of machines, automobiles because we can run them virtually in these programs, making easy for the designers to know the defects, shortcomings, and improvement needed. In addition to these, there are many CAD software available which can also –

  1. Simulate,
  2. Analyze stress and strain subjected on the components,
  3. Calculate the effect of heat and thermal expansion,
  4. Calculate magnitude, and effect of friction between different components,
  5. Check environmental impacts,
  6. And estimate cost and expenses of making a product.

However, each CAD software is programmed to carry out a particular function.
