Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of computer systems to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design.
CAD software is used to increase the productivity of the designer, improve the quality of design, improve communications through documentation, and to create a database for manufacturing. CAD output is often in the form of electronic files for print, machining, or other manufacturing operations. CAD is mainly used for detailed engineering of 3D models and/or 2D drawings of physical components, but it is also used throughout the engineering process from conceptual design and layout of products, through strength and dynamic analysis of assemblies, to definition of manufacturing methods of components. It can also be used to design objects. Many CAD applications now offer advanced rendering and animation capabilities so engineers can better visualize their product designs.
