The use of software and computer hardware in developing engineering drawings and designs and accessing stored product and engineering data and history. CAD systems allow for multiple iterations, views and comparisons of proposed designs.
Use of computer graphics in design, drafting, and documentation in product and manufacturing engineering.
Automation of the performance of various operations according to graphic design specifications through the use of a special computer and peripherals.
See ARCHITECTURAL AND ENGINEERING RECORDS.
aka CAD - A system for digitally developing product designs.
Software used to create architectural drawings, product designs, landscaping plans, and engineering drawings.
A software program with algorithms for drafting and modeling, providing a graphical representation of a printed board's conductor layout and signal routes.
software used in art and architecture and engineering and manufacturing to assist in precision drawing
Digital drafting tools for engineering, architectural, facilities management, and graphic design applications. CAD packages allow users to precisely specify sizes, shapes, and positions of vector elements, and to assign elements to separate layers. Only graphic attributes (such as line width, color, and polygon shading) are encoded. Linkage of vector elements and attribute databases is not directly supported. Therefore, CAD packages do not provide analytical capabilities such as polygon overlay and spatial searches.
to produce a single unambiguous digital definition of geometry in such format as to be suitable for integrated, seamless design and manufacture
A general term that refers to the use of computers and graphics-oriented software to aid in the design process.
(CAD) - A software program used to design physical objects, from electrical components to aircraft.
All new construction and major renovations entail drawings created in a standard GSA format, with the help of computer-based programs such as CAD.
(CAD) - design created on a computer screen using special software.
The use of high-resolution graphics in a wide range of design activities, allowing quick evaluation and modification of intent.
Any of a number of computer-based tools which assist a designer. CAD tools are vital for a number of phases in designing integrated circuits because they greatly facilitate entering, verifying, tracking, and storing massive amounts of complex information required.
An automated system for the design, drafting, and display of graphically oriented information.
The use of computer techniques in designing products, esp involving the use of computer graphics.
Also sometimes called computer-aided drafting, is a computer program which implements the functions of geometric design, drafting and documentation.
Using computer graphics software to aid the process of design, especially in architecture or engineering.
The use of a computer to design a device or a system, display it on a computer monitor or printer, simulate its operation, and provide statistics on its performance. The computer is provided with data concerning the item to be designed, how it is to function, and the rules for the way in which the different components can be joined.
A design method that uses computer generated images, rather than mechanical drawings.
Computer software that assists a user in producing drawings and layouts for engineering designs. Commonly referred to as CAD.
Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of a wide range of computer-based tools that assist engineers, architects and other design professionals in their design activities. It is the main geometry authoring tool within the Product Lifecycle Management process and involves both software and sometimes special-purpose hardware. Current packages range from 2D vector based drafting systems to 3D solid and surface modellers.
