Education, Training, Entertainment and Computer Aided Design

CAD or CADD is an acronym which depending upon who you ask, can stand for:

I. Computer Assisted Design.

II. Computer Aided Drafting.

III. Computer Aided Design.

IV. Computer Assisted Drafting.

V.  Computer Aided Design and Drafting.

VI. Computer Assisted Design and Drafting.

Generally acronym for CAD is Computer-Aided Design. In Computer Aided Design interactive graphics is utilized to design elements and systems of mechanical, electronic and electrical devices. In fact Computer Aided Design system is a combination of software and hardware which enables engineers and architects to design anything from furniture to airplanes. Additionally to the software, Computer Aided Design systems need a high-quality graphics monitor; a mouse, digitized tablets or light pen for drawing; and also an individual printer or plotter for printing design specifications.

Computer Aided Design systems permit an engineer to analyst a design from any angle along with the push of a button and to zoom in/out for close up and long-distance views. Additionally, the computer maintains track of design dependencies hence when the engineer modifies one value, all the other values which depend upon it are automatically modified accordingly.

Commonly we use computer aided design as an element for imparting education and training to the engineers, hence, they can generate beautifully carved and engineered pieces in bulk along with similar amount of perfection and finishing. Usually some terms are utilized repeatedly with computer aided design and they are CNC and CAM. So let us discuss "What is CAD or CAM and CAD or CNC (NC)"?

The term CAD or CAM is a shortening of Computer-Aided-Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing. The term CAD or NC is Numerical Control i.e. equivalent in several industries. CAD or CAM software utilizes CAD drawing elements to describe geometries utilized by the Computer-Aided Manufacturing portion of the program to express an element path which will direct the motion of a machine element to machine the perfect shape i.e. to be drawn on the computer. Now let us discuss the terms in briefly.
