CAD Software

Operating CAD Software, or any computer system for that matter, can be a complex and time-consuming role. 

All too often it is not seen as a separate role, but something that someone can do while also doing their full-time job. 

It is then given to one of the CAD Software users, or one of the IT people, or even a Design Manager to handle the Cad Management. 

This is not a good use of personnel and will result in inferior management of your system.

So, are you so busy doing your own work (CAD or IT or managing) that you find you have no time to manage and/or optimise your system? 

We can help with:

about automation
  • Installations
  • Upgrades
  • Scheduled system maintenance
  • System audit/review
  • Documentation of software, hardware, licensing
  • Checklists: daily, weekly, etc,
  • Backup/restore strategy and implementation
  • CAD library setup
  • Network configuration
  • File management

Assistance with any of these tasks can be supplied on an as-required basis or in an on-going capacity.

Computer Aided Design (CAD)

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is the use of computer technology for the process of design and design-documentation.  CAD describes the process of drafting or modelling with a computer. CAD software, or environments, provide the user with input-tools for the purpose of streamlining design processes, drafting, documentation, and manufacturing processes.  CAD output is often in the form of electronic files for print or machining operations.

CAD environments usually involve more than just shapes.  As in the manual drafting of technical and engineering drawings, the output of CAD must convey information such as materials, processes, dimensions, and tolerances, according to application-specific conventions.

CAD may be used to design curves and figures in two-dimensional (2D) space; or curves, surfaces, and solids in three-dimensional (3D) space.  The modern ubiquity and power of computers means that even perfume bottles and shampoo dispensers are designed using techniques unheard of by designers just a few decades ago.  CAD has been a major driving force for research in computational geometry, computer graphics (both hardware and software), and discrete differential geometry.

CAD is used in almost every industry, in projects as wide-ranging as machinery design, landscape design, bridge construction, office building design, jewellery design, wood working, and even film animation.  With 2D or 3D CAD programmes, you can perform a variety of tasks: you can create a 3D model of a design, apply material and light effects and document the design with dimensions and other annotations.  With features like point clouds, you can add real-life context to your drawings to create a digital twin or recreate physical objects in your designs
