Computer Aided Design (CAD)

Computer Aided Design (CAD) is software used to make a virtual 3-D or 2-D model of anything you want. Whatever is envisioned is put through a digital drafting process through the software and computer. CAD software gives tools to help streamline designs & vastly increases the complexity amount that can be afforded in any project. Because of its flexible utility, CAD is used in many industries including automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding, architecture, and prosthetics.  As in the manual drafting of technical and engineering drawings, the output of CAD must convey information, such as materials, processes,dimensions, and tolerances, according to application-specific conventions.

Why It’s Important

Simple designs on certain products can be done manually by hand sketches without issue. However, there are many products & parts containing a high degree of complexity needing the finer capabilities of computer aided design. Using advanced software, any mechanical design can be virtually fabricated first. With a virtual prototype, there is no need to spend time and resources on making a live prototype. Overall, any project related to mechanical design would only benefit from applying computer aided design.

The Typical Process:

Here’s a general overview of how the CAD and drafting process goes at Arc Designs Inc.

1. Customer Sketch (Initial Plan)

2. Research

3. Mass Modeling for Representation

4. Review

5. Creation of a Solid Model for Production

6. Review

7. CAD Details and Drawings

8. Final Review

9. Production
