You already know how CAD (computer-aided design) files are an important part of your design process. From conceptual design to layout, your products are quickly brought to life before your eyes.
Before computers, designers actually had to draw using rulers, paper and pencil. These files were first created to use in the design of automobiles. Today, they’re used in a wide variety of industries around the world. But a few elements are clearly missing when you recieve your CAD files.
“When we recieve CAD files, our first step is a complete overview to ensure we have everything we need,” said Shawn Letendre, technical specialist. “Next step is rounding edges, adding lighting, illustrating edges and so on. So many pieces of a product just don’t appear in these files, such as wiring and bolts.”
