      Hello mechanical design engineers;

      CAD program is being used on extensive foundation by a number of technological innovation experts and organizations for various programs. The most common program of these programs is developing and creating.

      So i would like to know what are the benefits of CAD program in Companies..

      If we compared with manual design, CAD programs certainly have many advantages of efficiency, effectiveness, speed, ease and quality. But if the comparison between the CAD program, each CAD program has its advantages and disadvantages. A lot of CAD programs commonly used in machine design such as AutoCAD, Inventor, Solidworks, Catia, Pro-Engineering etc.
      And of course CAD programs usually support for CNC program.

      I'm a bit curious to know what CAD programs other designers feel are the best for machine design. I've been using AutoCAD personally. I enjoy it but I'm not adverse to using another program if AutoCAD isn't top of the line. Sometimes I get into a comfort zone with technology and don't pay as much attention to the advances as I should.

      Personally I prefer KeyCreator for machine design, though there are many good CAD programs out there. Don't waste your time with anything other than a 3D solid modeler. Whether you prefer a parametric modeler (Solidworks, Inventor, etc.) or a direct modeler (KeyCreator, Creo/direct, etc.) is personal preference but also depends on the kind of design work you're doing. Autocad is largely considered obsolete, hindered by its 2D baggage.
