Why Should You Be Using CAD Software For All Design? Creating the bespoke design when you are making a product is vital to make it personal to you. If designs do not come out with your desired appearance, designing your product can be a waste of time and money. So, why should you be using CAD design to stop this problem?
Tatnell Engineering Services can ensure that you always have CAD available for use, to provide you with the best designs for any products. With our CAD tools, you always have easy access to the right equipment. What Is CAD?
CAD is used for the drawings of products, it also refers to any design process that involves computer software, which is why it is called computer aided design. It can be used for a range of purposes and is often the best option to design products, shapes and materials whether you have a career in: Architecture Art Construction Designing Engineering Textiles
Even if you are not in one of these career paths, having knowledge of CAD is still beneficial, allowing you to create accurate drawings and designs of many different items.
CAD software also allows for design ideas to be quickly changeable, allowing you to edit plans and designs for any products or buildings.
CAD can create accurate 2D and 3D drawings that can be used to create printed circuit boards and different colours and textures for embroidery and product shapes. Accuracy Over Manual Drafting
Free hand drafting can still provide you with great details and amazing designs, however it does not provide you with the complete accuracy and flexibility of CAD. Computer aided design allows you to regularly change details throughout your design, making any amendments to be improving on a regular basis.
Manual drafting means that if mistakes are made, it can often result in a redo of your entire design. With the ability to change just certain parts of your design, this can ensure a more accurate design of your item whilst also saving you time of having to start again. Additionally, this is not a difficult skill to learn and you can easily make effective designs using this software.
Reproduce Old Designs
It doesn’t matter how good your memory is, you can’t store an unlimited amount of designs in your head. However, using the
correct software allows you to do exactly that and keep all your designs stored in one place.
This also means if you decide to recreate the same design over and over again, there is no need to manually design it just as many times. You can simply create products that you have previously designed, allowing you to create the same products, shapes and materials in bulk for distribution. This will save your business the time and money of having to recreate through manual drafting –
something you must take advantage of. Sharing & Checking
Whether you are working within a business, a sole trader or require CAD for personal reasons, having the ability to share and check your designs is a great benefit. You can share designs across the software to multiple people, ensuring designs are correct for clients and that other people in your business are happy with the designs you create.
Additionally, CAD software allows for your design to be checked, ensuring its practicality and safety when it is created. When drafting manually, there can always be the risk that the functionality, accuracy and style of your design will not be correct when it is finished. CAD completely removes this problem.
