What is CAD? 

CAD is computer-aided design. CAD is used by designers and engineers to create 2D drawings and 3D models. The software is designed to make the workflow better and more efficient during the process of product design.

CAD files are made and these are then used in the rest of the process. The whole CAD system can make it easier for product designers to collaborate and communicate on one project. It also means edits and adjustments can be done using CAD with ease.
