Mechanical Engineering CAD
Computer Aided Design (CAD) uses specialist software to create two and three dimensional images and animations of projects both in manufacturing and for use in advertising and technical manuals. CAD can convey many types of information, including dimensions, types of material, and tolerances and is essential in offering solutions to both engineering and manufacturing problems. CAD is extensively used in many applications, including automotive, shipbuilding and aerospace industries, and in industrial design. CAD software helps designers to explore ideas, visualise concepts through photorealistic renderings and movies and simulates how the design project will perform in the real world.
