What is 3D mechanical engineering and design software?
Engineers and designers use mechanical engineering and design software to model, validate, and communicate ideas before production. Additional tools are available and sometimes integrated in the CAD software for manufacturing products on a CNC machine or 3D printer. Mechanical engineering software is employed across several industries, including industrial machine design, automotive, and consumer products.
Types of mechanical engineering and design
COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN (CAD)
CAD is one of the most commonly used software design tools. The models created by CAD software are often used as inputs to other mechanical engineering and design tools.
