In this post we’ll be looking at how Computer Aided Design (CAD), benefits a project, whether it be for structural steel or architectural metalwork. With technology taking over, traditional drafting methods are becoming a thing of the past. CAD helps with not only the design aspect of a project but benefits each step throughout.
“You can use an eraser on the drawing table or a sledgehammer on the construction site.” – Frank Lloyd wright
CAD lets bespoke projects be modelled in either 2D or 3D, and includes dimensions, materials, and tolerance. Allowing designers to consider different elements means targeting potential problems before it’s too late. If a problem does occur, designers can amend designs to evolve with the project itself.
Computer Aided Designs have the benefit of being very detailed. These details can be passed to engineers and contractors promptly and worked on further. Being able to share work and make it accessible to all those necessary means projects can reach completion faster. Plus, the accuracy that is provided with CAD means less problems further down the line, saving time and money.
CAD produces high quality work. Having accurate, detailed drawings to show to clients will allow them to understand how a project is progressing and modifications are able to be made if needed.
The design stage of any project is extremely important. Not only is it the first step that needs completing, but it is then referred to by others throughout a project. If any elements aren’t accurate then further stages will be compromised. Luckily, CAD reduces human error and allows different parts needed for a project to be focused on in detail.
