Computer Aided Design
Computer Aided Design (CAD) is product design and development software for modeling, simulation/analysis, and product documentation. CAD facilitates the manufacturing process by transferring detailed diagrams of a product’s materials, properties, tolerances, and dimensions to through 2D and 3D images.
Our CAD Solutions
We partner with PTC and ANSYS to bring you the best CAD software in the world. Our design and simulation tools allow everyone in the enterprise to more efficiently contribute to the product development process.
PTC’s Creo product design apps are interoperable, integrated applications that span the entire spectrum of product development.
ANSYS offers integrated single discipline and multiphysics solutions including fluid dynamic capabilities that guide users from design concept through validation.
“I try to keep 80% of my students actively engaged. The goal is to train people to jump into the drafting field but have the background to move into a designer role rapidly.”
-Dan Podzimek, Engineering, Drafting & Design Program Chair, Globe University
“I started my career using SolidWorks, then I switched to Pro/ENGINEER which is now Creo. Creo Parametric, in my opinion, is the best CAD software available. I have noticed recently that files created in Solidworks tend to have solid modeling issues and make it difficult to design to the solid models needed. The reputation and performance that Creo has definitely surpasses any other software on the market.”
– Mike Goetz, Senior Engineer, Augustine Die and Mold Inc.
“Mathcad has become the requisite software for the performance of my job. My production is contingent on Mathcad and my textbooks.”
-Eric Pease, Engineer, Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc
“…we’ve invested in the latest and greatest tools so that we can implement full top-down design for faster results.”
-Mark Lytell, Principle Engineer, Lovejoy
“PTC Creo Parametric is more intuitive and there are more options. It is more of a direct input environment and it seems to be a bit more professional.”
-Josh Bendel, Owner, Automation Design
“My favorite part of Mathcad is that it’s easy to use. Engineers new to the system can accomplish tasks in a matter of hours and become experts in two weeks. There are no special programming skills required.”
-Mike Becker, Mechanical Engineer, Uni-Systems, LLC.
“Adoption was really painless compared to other new technology. We just hired a few new people and they were able to get up and running fast.”
– Ahmed Kansara PTC Administrator & Sr. Mechanical Engineer, Generation Brands
