    • Illustrates CAD concepts with respect to engineering problems rather than to a particular syntax
    • Includes practical information on automation (through CAD in design process) and animation
    • Explains the mathematical tools used in related operations
    • Takes a self-directed approach that is not based on a particular CAD software
    • Covers concept generation, approaching design and modeling supported by practical examples and downloadable demo videos


    Optimize Designs in Less Time

    An essential element of equipment and system design, computer aided design (CAD) is commonly used to simulate potential engineering problems in order to help gauge the magnitude of their effects. Useful for producing 3D models or drawings with the selection of predefined objects, Computer Aided Design: A Conceptual Approach directs readers on how to effectively use CAD to enhance the process and produce faster designs with greater accuracy.

    Learn CAD Quickly and Efficiently

    This handy guide provides practical examples based on different CAD systems, and incorporates automation, mechanism, and customization guidelines, as well as other outputs of CAD in the design process. It explains the mathematical tools used in related operations and covers general topics relevant to any CAD program.

    Comprised of 12 chapters, this instructional reference addresses:

    • Automation concepts and examples
    • Mechanism design concepts
    • Tie reduction through customization
    • Practical industrial component and system design

    Reduce Time by Effectively Using CAD

    Computer Aided Design: A Conceptual Approach concentrates on concept generation, functions as a tutorial for learning any CAD software, and was written with mechanical engineering professionals and post-graduate engineering students in mind.
