At CAD Culture, we specialise in offering training for the use of Rhino 3D, a highly versatile CAD program that can be used for a variety of uses. Our specialty is training you how to use Rhino 3D to design jewellery, but CAD is used in a variety of different industries. Nowadays, if an industry produces a tangible product, more likely than not, CAD has been used to minimise the time and costs of making prototypes.
Through detailed digital designs, interior designers use CAD software to bring their ideas to life. CAD allows designers to show their clients what rooms will look like upon completion, right down to paint colour.
CAD software allows landscapers to conceptualise breathtaking creations, and figure out where best to place landscaping components such as patios, gardens, trees and fences.
Most high-end designers will make an initial design for a collection by hand, using CAD software later on in the design process. This software can determine the most efficient cut of fabric, as well as adjusting the scale for different clothing sizes. The software can then demonstrate how the clothing will look and move on a body, by placing it on a virtual model, allowing designers to make any changes if they don’t like the initial result.
No longer are maps charted by hand. Instead, modern cartographers use CAD software to record road maps, topographic maps and even climate.
Buildings are one of the most expensive investments many people make, so it’s essential that all initial plans are flawless. Architects utilise CAD to work alongside 2D floor plans and 3D schematics of commercial or residential structures. Not only is CAD used to design the actual architecture and layout of a new structure, it determines specifications such as measurements, volumes and weights prior to beginning construction.
CAD is used by civil engineers to design and plan urban infrastructure, such as office complexes, parks, industrial units and bridges.
The price of any single aerospace product can be in the billions, with the industry making aircraft, missiles, satellites and space vehicles. CAD software plays a fundamental role throughout the initial design process to meticulously calculate everything before the product is built.
CAD software is used in all parts of the design process to create prototypes of vehicle body styles, engines, tyres, upholstery, and circuitry boards.
