Type: Exponential use of computer-aided design (CAD) software facilitating easier modifications and enhancements

Computer-aided design (CAD) software is used by professionals in various fields, such as engineering, architecture, and product design, to create precision drawings or technical illustrations. This software allows users to digitally draft and design complex structures, products, and systems, facilitating more accessible modifications and enhancements than traditional hand-drafting methods. Computer-aided engineering (CAE) software includes simulation, validation, analysis, and optimization of products and manufacturing tools. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a part of CAE that specifically deals with the analysis and simulation of fluid flows using numerical methods. Finite element analysis (FEA) is a numerical process for estimating how a product reacts to real-world forces, heat, vibration, fluid flow, and physical effects. Multibody dynamics is an area of computational mechanics that involves the simulation and analysis of multiple interconnected bodies undergoing motion. Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software is used in the manufacturing process to automate and improve the efficiency of production tasks. Toolpath generation is a specific function within CAM that involves creating detailed directions that guide cutting tools during manufacturing. Effective toolpath generation is vital for achieving the finished product's desired surface quality, geometric accuracy, and material characteristics.
