Top 9 Benefits of 3D CAD Modeling in Mechanical Engineering Design
Are you having trouble creating accurate mechanical drawings using the traditional ways of drafting? Inaccurate drawings can cost you valuable time and money, as most firms realize the design flaws during the manufacturing stage, and are forced to revisit the design phase again.
3D CAD modeling can help you eliminate these problems and reduce design costs by increasing the overall design accuracy and eliminating the need for redundant designs.
9 Key Advantages of 3D CAD Modeling in Mechanical Engineering Design
There are many benefits of 3D CAD modeling in mechanical engineering design. Here are 9 reasons to opt for 3D CAD modeling in mechanical engineering design.
- Improves quality of the design: 3D CAD software comes with over 700,000 standard templates of mechanical components. Using 3D CAD modeling for mechanical engineering design allows designers to use the existing templates, thus ensuring the accuracy of the design, and also saving the design time
- Increases productivity of the designer: 3D CAD modeling helps the designer visualize the mechanical component in 3D at the initial stage itself and make any changes instantly, if needed. This enhances productivity of the designer as he doesn't have to revisit the design at a later stage
- Easy documentation: The traditional methods of drafting involve manually documenting various aspects of the mechanical component, which is a tedious process and need high levels of accuracy. 3D CAD modeling makes the entire process of documenting component designs easy, as it comes preloaded with flexible documentation options - like documenting geometries and dimensions of the product, material specifications, bill of materials, etc.
- Compatible with International standards: Designing with 3D CAD ensures that the designs are compatible with international standards. CAD supports BSI, ANSI, DIN, CSN, GB, ISO, and GOST drafting platforms. Being compliant with industry standards improves internal communication and results in better outputs
- Automatic redrawing of design: Redrawing the hidden parts of components is a troublesome task for the designers using traditional drawing techniques. 3D CAD automatically redraws lines and dashes of the parts hidden from other mechanical parts of the design. If there is any change in design, 3D CAD automatically redraws the lines and dashes, thereby eliminating the chance of any error
- Reduces design time: Getting a virtual 3D CAD model in the design phase aids in faster development and helps the mechanical engineers complete the design and get into the manufacturing of the mechanical component much faster
- Better visualization for clients: 3D CAD modeling provides the best visual images of the component to be designed in 3D. The components can even be animated and the working can be observed. Visual graphics helps the customer understand the features and properties of the component better. This further helps in demonstrating the functionality of the mechanical component to the client, and making a proposal
- Saving of data and drawings: The designs created on CAD can be easily saved for future reference. Some of the standard components need not be redesigned and this saves a lot of time for future designs creation
- Saves cost: 3D CAD comes with many standard designed components which saves the designer from the trouble of designing them again from scratch. This saves crucial time and money. Also, obtaining the licensed modeling software is expensive hence outsourcing 3D CAD modeling is the preferred option, as it helps in saving the costs further
