CAD Design 

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) uses a computer program to create, analyze, and modify iterations of a design in order to optimize it.


CAD has generally replaced hand drafting and has streamlined construction documentation. Because it’s a fast electronic process, there is essentially no cost to exploring multiple design options, and modeling component performance.

Uses Of CAD Design

  • Model and test multiple design iterations in the concept stage. Provides a low-cost method to apply creativity and think "outside the box" doing multiple “what if” scenarios.

  • Provide quick answers to questions of materials selection, usage, and fit.

  • Using CAD plans, it’s easy to correct performance or manufacturing problems by adjusting design or materials.

  • Examine and improve engineering, manufacturing, and quality processes. Correct issues before going to production.
