Before the boom of technology, almost everything in the process of pre-design is being presented in a plain 2D manner. Drawings could not serve the purpose of conveying the feel of a design. It’s as if something is lacking although the drawing is duly presented. Sketches but lack information.
In comes the advent of 3D modeling for the architecture and design industries. This technology took its place during the 1990s even though it began way back in the 1960s.
3D modeling gives a better view of specific sides and angles. It even offers custom-modeled surroundings if necessary.
Ivan Sutherland, a computer scientist from the USA, created a program called Sketchpad . Its purpose was to have a software that allows computers to “read” drawings on a screen with a light pen.
With Sketchpad, the artist could create multiple drawings using one main model. when changes were made to the main model, all other drawings followed accordingly.
Sketchpad brought Sutherland esteemed awards. This got him the name of the father of CAD programs by 3D artists.
CAD made the revisions easier and quicker. The production speed and turnaround time of the drafting process are impressive. The software also made industries achieve higher degrees of accuracy in their designs.
CAD stands for Computer-Aided Design. It is the use of a software to design and document a product’s design and process. While 3D models are typically either used for digital applications, CAD is used for detailed engineering of 2D or 3D models.
Types of CAD software
With CAD, engineers are able to layout and to develop their work on a computer screen.
With CAD, architects may offer internal object placement to their clients. They could easily show the interior of a structure. It also lets them render 3D models and for previews of projects.
