Title:A Guide To Computer Aided Design Word Count:316 Summary:Computer Aided Design (CAD) is a form of software automation that uses various computer-aided designtools that helps engineers, architects and other professionals in the design activity purposes. It is consideredto be both software and special-purpose hardware. In product lifecycle management, the use of geometrictools plays a significant role. The CAD is available in various packages ranging from 2D vector baseddrafting systems to 3D parametric surface and solid design modelers. Keywords:Applications of Computer Aided Manufacturing, Cam And Computer Aided Design, Computer AidedDesign , Computer Aided Design Scanners Article Body:Computer Aided Design (CAD) is a form of software automation that uses various computer-aided designtools that helps engineers, architects and other professionals in the design activity purposes. It is consideredto be both software and special-purpose hardware. In product lifecycle management, the use of geometrictools plays a significant role. The CAD is available in various packages ranging from 2D vector baseddrafting systems to 3D parametric surface and solid design modelers. CAD allows you to prepare fast and accurate drawings. Virtually anything can be constructed and built as adesign model developed in the CAD system. The flexibility to alter the drawings is performed very easilywith a minimal effort. It is also referred as Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD). It is sometimestranslated as computer-assisted or computer-aided drafting. The tool provides you a better and the faster wayof developing the drawings with better creativity. CAD is used in major areas like applications that involve computer graphics, computer- aidedmanufacturing, solid modeling, solving by constraints, architectural purpose and VLSI design. Other fieldsthat use the CAD are Architecture Engineering and Construction, Building Engineering (AEC), MechanicalCAD (MCAD), Electronic and Electrical (ECAD), manufacturing process planning, and digital circuitdesign. CAD uses four basic phases that are used for designing and manufacturing. They are the requirement phasewhich collects the basic requirements and conceives the basic idea. The designing phase uses detailedcomponent modeling and assembly modeling. The development phase uses engineering drawings. The tool
