Computer Aided Design (CAD) is the two-dimensional or three -dimensional modelling of physical structures. It uses specialist computer software to create these models with precise measurements. It is used in a wide range of industries including engineering, product design, architecture and industrial design.
The use of CAD has significantly transformed many industries and it is a leading technology in design and manufacturing. It increases productivity and efficiencies, speeding up the design process and allowing for high quality and adaptable design, making industry more competitive and responsive to market demands.
