The ISO 4217 currency code for Canada Dollar.

CAD

ISO 4217 code for the Canadian dollar. The dollar traces its antecedents to the dollar of the Province of Canada, which was issued in 1858 and gradually adopted by the territories of British North America as they formed modern Canada over the course of the next century. The Canadian dollar was pegged to the United States dollar at various values, often at par, until 1950. The currency began to float that year, though it briefly reverted to the U.S. dollar peg between 1962 and 1970.

Versprille points out that such a simple edit is not possible in parametric modeling systems.
Parametric Modeling Using Autodesk Inventor is a strong resource for those who like a text to support their learning of parametric modeling and Autodesk Inventor," said Kristen Tomasic, vice president, Synergis Engineering Design Solutions.
This feature dramatically reduces design time of mechanical parts, because it removes limitations introduced from parametric modeling -- all parts of the solid can be modified, not only the ones driven by parameters or dimension.
New: ability to define horizontal and vertical constraints -- New: ability to blend previews and one click selection for edge blending -- Improved: redesigned "part-tree" for quick, easy parametric modeling and editing -- Improved: ability to create automatic and precise tangencies where splines meet other objects -- Improved: ability to define constraints for objects in parallel planes with just one click.
In addition, the combination of direct modeling and parametric modeling gives designers a great deal of editing flexibility.
But these are the first new design methods introduced since parametric modeling more than 20 years ago.
Operating completely within native V5 data structures, FLUENT for CATIA V5 is fully generative and supports parametric modeling, knowledge-based engineering, and analysis-driven optimization studies within the CATIA PLM system.
These dimensions can be automatically exported as parameters to Bentley's MicroStation, instantly updating the CAD model, allowing for computationally based parametric modeling.
Starting with Neon for 3D publishing, continuing with Argon (advanced 3D) and Xenon (advanced associative 3D), and concluding with Cobalt for feature-based parametric modeling, users are treated to a core of new features, while continuing to work within Ashlar's renown user interface.
Employing the very latest parametric modeling technologies, StructureWorks adapts all changes throughout the entire set of design documents including detailed erection and individual drawings.
The integration of SolidWorks(R) 3D mechanical design software and Mathcad(R), the world's most widely used engineering calculation tool, enables joint customers to harness Mathcad-generated values to automatically drive parametric modeling in a SolidWorks design.
