Decades ago, manufacturers could only draw product designs by hand. Every single draft required painstaking effort, slowing down design output and limiting revenue for companies. Now in the digital age, computer aided design (CAD) software has revolutionized the way manufacturing designers create products — improving efficiency, creating better quality renderings, and creating massive cost savings.
Some manufacturers have chosen not to invest in CAD because they don’t see the value, but they’re missing the bigger picture of what design software offers. After all, sticking with manual drafting processes inhibits product development.
Here, we’ll cover just some of the ways CAD software can unleash designers’ full creative potentials.
