CAD is the most talking term in the design world as it is beneficial to design something new with accuracy. It is used with confidence to design anything from t-shirt to aircraft. Though CAD is most widely used in designing precision machine parts or giant building structure, it is also used in the garment and textile industries. It has started its journey in the textile and apparel sector in the 1970s, and till now, it is giving its services.
Definition of CAD
CAD stands for computer-aided design. It is a composition of software and hardware that helps engineers or designers to design anything. Besides software, CAD needs good-quality graphics monitor, mouse, light pen or digitizing tablet for drawing and a printer.
It has reduced hard labour and save time to design anything by the engineers and designers. Before the entrance of the CAD system, they used to design anything by set square. They also used to design by hard-working and taking a long time, but the designs were not accurate. And now a day, they use CAD systems to design anything more accurately in less time.
Benefits of CAD
The benefits of CAD are as follows –
- It has lessened the costs of product development.
- It has increased productivity.
- It has improved product quality and faster time to shipment or market.
- It speeds up the design process.
- As it offers great accuracy, there are fewer faults.
- It also offers easy re-use of the design data and best practices.
