Harnessing available technology to aid your engineering efforts can save you a great deal of time and money. Computer-aided design (CAD) makes conception, testing, troubleshooting and creating complex systems far more efficient and cost-effective compared to manual methods.
Two-dimensional CAD allows you to drastically reduce your time investment drafting the design, facilitating the quick identification and correction of errors and permitting the reuse of locked design elements. You also gain the ability to share developing projects with other members of your organization instantly through email. The 2D CAD drawings should be linked to your 3D CAD models.
If you have three-dimensional needs, CAD tools offer powerful and efficient solutions. 3D CAD tools facilitate the design of highly complex systems and use parametric modeling technologies to quickly and efficiently evaluate multiple design configurations and alternatives. Using finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), one can optimize existing designs in the virtual realm, and 3D CAD designs are compatible with computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software. This saves even more time and reduces the possibility of error.
In short, CAD makes a strong impact on your bottom line, helping you save untold amounts of time and money on the design phases of your engineering projects. An investment in CAD is an investment in efficiency.
