Technical Information

CAD is the standard for producing engineering drawings in industry due to its ease in:
  • Design – working models can be made with relative ease and speed.
  • Accuracy – designs are made to the exact measurements the project would be on-site and can be scaled to different sizes.
  • Adjustability - design modifications can be made easily.
  • Analysis – Some programs can examine the structural competency of a design.
  • Replication – a design can easily be printed in the size and format required, whereas with hand drawings this would be far more laborious.
