What is CAD?

A set of methods and tools to assist product designers in creating a geometrical representation of the Objects they are designing. Apart from designing, it also has the ability to provide Dimensioning, Tolerancing, Configuration Management (Changes), Archiving, Exchanging part and assembly information between teams, organizations etc.

What is the next stage of Designed product?

  • Analysis – (To test the ability of the product by applying loads and boundary conditions using Analysis software’s)
  • Manufacturing – (The model generated from CAD is fed into cam software which controls the machine tools)

Types of CAD software

  • 2 D software – AUTOCAD (Most popular software), LibreCAD, DraftSight, FreeCAD etc.
  • 3 D Software – Pro Engineer, Solid Works, CATIA, I-DEAS, Unigraphics, Autodesk Fusion 360, etc..

How many software should one learn to enter into design field?

It’s based on various parameters like Time duration, course fee, present job market etc. For safer side better learn AUTOCAD (2 D), PRO- E (Best in Solid Modeling) & CATIA ( Best in Surface modeling) and Unigraphics (since 2007 owned by Siemens PLM Software).

WHERE TO STUDY CAD SOFTWARES?

There are lot of private institutes teaches CAD software. Based on your comfort (Batch Timing, Course Fee, and Distance from your residence) you can select any training Institute.

Tips to select an Institute

  • Visit the Institute and verify its infrastructure
