  • Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CADD)Entire range of design and drafting with the aid of a computerComputer-aided design (CAD)Computer-aided drafting (CAD)Used by several industries and most engineering and architectural related disciplines

  • CADD WorkstationHardwareComputer provides:Data processingCalculationsCommunication with peripheral equipment

  • CADD Software ProductsNumerous and constantly changingMany CADD software manufacturesRapidly evolving CADD market

  • CADD Software ProductsGeneral-purposeMechanical computer aided design (MCAD)Other disciplines such as architectural, civil, structuralSoftware packagesProduct lifecycle management (PLM)

  • Common CADD Software Manufactures

  • Common CADD Formats2-D drawings3-D wireframe models3-D surface models3-D solid models

  • Choosing a CADD FormatDesign and drafting practicesProject requirementsCollaboration and communicationSoftware and training costsKnown industry standard productStability and usabilitySupport and trainingPersonal preference

  • Two-Dimensional (2-D) DrawingsEstablished and often required design and drafting formatCommon in all engineering and architectural industries and related disciplinesDescribes design intent and product requirementsCan provide computer numerical control (CNC) machine code

  • 2-D Drawings

  • Three-Dimensional (3-D) Wireframe ModelsBasic 3-D CAD modelInclude object edges and verticesCan provide geometry for:2-D drawings3-D computer numerical control (CNC) machine codeReplaced by 3-D surface and solid modeling

  • 3-D Wireframe Models

  • 3-D Surface ModelsInclude object edges, vertices, and surfacesComplex curves and formsCan provide geometry for:2-D drawings3-D solid models3-D computer numerical control (CNC) machine code

  • 3-D Surface Models

  • 3-D Solid ModelsMost complex CAD formatInclude object edges, vertices, surfaces, and massExact digital representation of a productMay require some surface modelingOffer engineering analysis and testingCan provide geometry for:2-D drawings3-D computer numerical control (CNC) machine code

  • 3-D Solid Models

  • Industry and CADDCADD can store many forms of dataCADD supports:ManufacturingMarketingSalesServiceMaintenance

  • Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)Supported by CADDPLM software helps coordinate:Design and manufacturingVisualization and presentationMaintenance and disassembly

  • Web-Based CollaborationCommon to modern design and draftingSupports the design and documentation processUses product data management (PDM) systemsAllows for increased outsourcing

  • Prototyping

  • Prototyping

  • Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE)

  • AnimationEngineering animationsBasic element of product design and analysiseLearning animationsAdditional classroom learning tool or an online or distance learning presentationEntertainment animationsMovies, television, and video games

  • Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM)Major innovationCommon processHelps produce consistent and quality productsComputer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM)Computer numerical control (CNC)

  • Computer-Integrated Manufacturing (CIM)Computer and software controls most, if not all, portions of manufacturingIncorporates CAD, CAM, robotics, electronics, hydraulics, pneumatics, computer programming, and process control

  • Additional CADD Applications

  • Virtual Reality (VR)Allows one or more people to move and react in a computer-simulated environmentProvides interaction with a model during the design process Requires special interface devicesWalk-throughFly-through

  • VR Applications and DevicesThrough-the-window VR (passive VR)Head Mounted Display (HMD)Binocular Omni-Orientation Monitor (BOOM)Cave Automatic Virtual Environment (CAVE)Haptic InterfaceWeb-Enabled Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML)

  • Basic CADD TechniquesDrawing and EditingLine Standards and LayersReusing ContentPlottingFile TemplatesStoring and Managing Files

  • Drawing and EditingCommands for creating and modifying all elements of a drawingTechniques vary depending on:CADD softwarePreferred design techniques

  • Drawing and Editing

  • Line Standards and LayersHelp organize and assign properties to objectsSeparate objects into logical groups for formatting and display purposes

  • Line Standards and Layers

  • Example Mechanical Drafting Layers

  • Reusing ContentCADD offers the ability to reuse:Objects and object propertiesText and dimension settingsDrafting symbolsSheetsTypical drawing details

  • Plotting a Hard CopyOften requiredCreates a plot that can be viewed and marked without having a computerEach CADD system uses a specific method to plotPlotting theory is similarElectronic plotting (exporting)

  • Drawing Scale and Scale FactorImportant consideration when plottingAutomated by most CADD software,Remains an important conceptExample application:A 1:4 scale drawing has a scale factor of 4 (4 1 = 4)Multiply the scale factor of 4 by values such as text height of .12 in. (3 mm) to find the .48 in. (12 mm) scaled text height

  • File TemplatesPreset settings for specific applicationsStandard items required for multiple projectsSave timeImprove consistency

  • Common Elements of a File TemplateUnits settingsDrawing and design settings and aidsLayersColor, material, and lighting standardsAnnotation standardsCommon symbolsDisplay settingsSheets and sheet itemsPlot settings

  • Storing and Managing FilesSave files immediately after you begin workSave at least every 10 to 15 minutesDevelop an organized structure of file foldersUse a specific file naming systemFollow established file management techniques

  • Surface Modeling TechniquesPolygonal modelingSurfaces are quick and easy to modifyCommon for character design for gamesNURBSNon-uniform rational basis splineNon-uniform rational B-splineAccurate curves and surfacesUsed by most CAD systems

  • NURB GeometryComplex mathematical spline representation with control pointsChange control points to alter the curve

  • NURB Geometry

  • Direct Surface Modeling

  • Procedural Surface Modeling

  • Solid PrimitivesBoolean operationsAlso apply to more complex solid models

  • Feature-Based Solid ModelingConstruct solid models using intuitive feature toolsOften begins with a 2-D sketchSketch used to develop a sketched featureAdditional features add or subtract solid material

  • Parametric Solid ModelsMost common feature-based solid modelsOften store model historyHistory-based solid modelingCaptures design intent using parametersMaintains design constraints

  • History-Free Solid ModelingOften associated with basic solids (dumb solids)Makes design changes easyHelps support collaborationExplicit modeling

  • Parametric Solid Model Work EnvironmentsPartAssembly (subassemblies and assembly)

  • Part Model ElementsSketchSketched featurePlaced (built-in, added, automated) featuresFeature patternReference (work, reference geometry) featuresCatalog (library) feature

  • Assembly ModelingAdd and constrain existing componentsBottom-up designCreate components within an assembly file (in-place)Top-down designAssembly constraints (mates)

  • Assembly Modeling

  • Extracting Drawing Content from ModelsEditing the model adjusts the corresponding drawingSome edits to the drawing modify the linked model

  • Design PlanningImportant and productive timeDetermines how you approach a projectWithout proper planning you may become frustrated and waste time

  • Design PlanningHelps establish:Drawing layoutDrafting settingsHow and when to perform specific tasksWhat objects and symbols to createThe best use of CADD and equipmentAn even workload
