What is CAD?

Computer-aided design is defined as the use of computer systems to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design. CAD software is used to increase the productivity of the designer, improve design quality, document communication, and create databases for manufacturing. CAD uses computers to help design something in 2D (curves and figures) or 3D (curves, surfaces, and solids).
