What is CAD (Computer-aided design)?

CAD, or Computer-Aided Design, is a software-based tool used to create, modify, analyze, and optimize designs. It allows designers and engineers to create detailed 2D and 3D models of products, components, and systems, and to simulate their performance and behavior under various conditions.

CAD software typically includes a range of tools and features, such as drawing and drafting tools, dimensioning and tolerancing tools, and simulation and analysis tools. It allows users to create, edit, and visualize designs in a variety of formats, including wireframe, surface, and solid models.

CAD is widely used in a range of industries, including manufacturing, engineering, architecture, and construction, to design and develop products, components, and systems. It is a valuable tool for improving design efficiency, accuracy, and collaboration, and for reducing product development time and cost.
