A Short Introduction to the World of CAD
You’ve seen the word. Heard it. Maybe even dabbled in it.
But what is Computer-Aided Design (otherwise known as CAD)?
According to TechTarget.com, “CAD (computer-aided design) software is used by architects, engineers, drafters, artists, and others to create precision drawings or technical illustrations.”
In other words, CAD is a software tool for the technologically creative.
Whether you’re a manufacturing enthusiast or a circuit board maker, there’s a reason why CAD is the design solution for manufacturers, engineers, and designers.
In short? CAD is capable of taking 3D visions and bringing them to life. And contrary to outdated rumors, even beginners can get in on the fun.
