CAD – Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) in Computer-Aided Design (CAD)

  1. What is CAD?

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is a way to digitally create 2D drawings and 3D models of real-world products – before a prototype has even been manufactured. With 3D CAD, you can simulate, modify, share and review, designs easily. This will open doors to innovation and create competitive products that get to the market fast. 

We offer you PTC Creo suite to meet your Computer-Aided Design specification.

2. What are the benefits of using CAD software?

CAD software enables faster design iterations, higher accuracy, easier collaboration, better visualisation, and seamless connection with production processes, resulting in cost savings and a shorter time-to-market.

3. What are the different types of CAD software available?

There are different varieties of CAD software designed for specific industries and design requirements, such as 2D CAD for drawing, (See, Arbortext Isodraw, Creo Illustrate), 3D CAD for modelling(See Creo Elements/direct modelling ), parametric CAD for associativity, (See Creo Parametric), and specialist CAD for fields such as electrical design (See Creo Schematics)

4. How do I choose the correct CAD programme for my business needs?

The unique needs of the sector and design projects, the simplicity of connection with current processes and systems, the potential to scale for future expansion, the total cost of ownership, and the reputation of the vendor for customer service and innovation are all important factors to take into account.
