Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Computer-aided engineering (CAE), CAM Software

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is the design and construction of a product by means of EDP. In the beginning, CAD software was a tool for technical drawings, but today CAD systems (2D and 3D CAD programs) include many more functions and support the design. CAD systems are used in almost all areas of technology: e.g. architecture, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, toolmaking, electrical engineering and even dental technology. Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) refers to all forms of computer support of work processes in design to improve product design or facilitate the solution of technical problems for many industries. Photorealistic renderings facilitate the visualization of concepts and ideas. Designs can be tested under real conditions using simulations.

Compare CAD programs, CAE and CAM software in this current market overview. Among other things, the category CAD and CAE (E-CAD) includes solutions for electrical engineering and electrical installation, electrical building design, programming systems for laser, flame and waterjet cutting and CNC punching. CAD software for furniture and interior design, programs for the calculation of cam gears, articulated gears and electric cams as well as software for programming systems for 3D laser and water jet systems and many more are listed in this overview.
