Look around the building in which you are present right now. It has corners, windows, and electric outlets. Whenever you see a beautifully constructed building, you admire its architecture. Have you ever thought that why every item in a structure is in its particular place? How are these buildings built so well? How was the location of everything decided? The answer to all these questions is CAD. It stands for computer aided design. It is software used by the designers and engineers to create two or three-dimensional models of physical components. CAD facilitates the manufacturing process by transferring the detailed diagrams.
What Is CAD?
We all know that CAD is the abbreviation of computer aided design. It is the use of computer system to assist in the process of modification, creation, analysis or optimization of the design. The engineers, drafters, architects, and artists, etc. use this software to create technical illustrations. The use of CAD software:
- Increase the designer’s productivity
- Improves the design quality
- Creates manufacturing database
- Improve documentation and communication
The CAD helps in the production process by sending detailed diagrams of a product’s material, process, and dimensions. By using computer aided design, we can produce two dimensional or three-dimensional pictures which we can rotate to view from different angles. In fact, we can see these designs from inside out that make CAD exceptional software.
Types Of CAD:
There are different types of CAD you can employ depending on the kind of work you have to do. Well, here we are going to discuss the AutoCAD that is a trademarked product of Autodesk. It is a computer aided drafting software used to create blueprints for bridges, buildings, and computer chips. It was first released in the year 1982 as a desktop app. AutoCAD is available in the following languages:
• Korean Spanish
Convert AutoCAD File Into PDF:
Following are the steps of CAD Conversion diagrams into the PDF file:
- First, start AutoCAD
- Then open the DWF, DWG or DXF document
- After that select from the main menu File”->”Print.”
- The choose the option virtual PDF printer
- after that click the option “property” on the right to adjust PDF generation options
- Then click OK
- Assign the file and folder name of the PDF document•
- Now you have converted the AutoCAD diagram to the PDF file
The process is straightforward and easy all you need is to understand the CAD and AutoCAD completely. It is the software that makes it easy for the artists, architects, and designers to create and view the designs from every angle. Initially, AutoCAD was derived from a program” Interact,” and it only used the primitive entities. Later it used the C++ application programming interface that allows supporting the custom objects. The modern software has all the tools needed for solid modeling. A basic standard for CAD data interoperability is DWG.
