For years, engineering students were forced to sketch their ideas in two dimensions, first on paper and then on the computer with the first generation of 2D CAD
AutoCAD used to be considered a "dumb" 2D CAD
A limitation of 2D CAD
is that it doesn't readily allow for bend radiuses so that getting it right often required drawing the spec a second time," says Gadberry.
1 also includes several new 3D and 2D CAD
parts and assemblies formats, including AutoCAD 2004.
The software is used in engineering, design, manufacturing and construction environments to enable team members to view and markup all project files, including 3D and 2D CAD
drawings, graphic files and documents, without requiring access to the native software.
It offers design guidelines, a catalog, downloadable 2D CAD
files, and a form for requesting a quote.
Its web site proclaims: "If you're designing with 2D CAD
, you're working way too hard.
Solid modeling requires substantially more computer resources than 2D CAD
Many SMEs have realized the benefits of 3D CAD over 2D CAD
software, providing 3D CAD software vendors with several opportunities to enhance their market potential and presence.
The CAD market in Australia can be segmented into two product segments: 3D CAD and 2D CAD
As an emerging technical tool one that is heralded as the next generation of computer aided design and construction after 2D CAD
drawing design and construction teams are still in the process of integrating and implementing the technology into everyday practice.
