What is Computer Aided Design?

Computer-aided design (CAD) is a computer technology that allows designers, engineers and architects to design products and documents. It can be used to produce 2D and 3D diagrams that can be rotated and viewed from any angle. It can also transfer detailed diagrams of a product’s materials, processes and dimensions.

CAD is used in the following industries:

  • Building design
  • Infrastructure design
  • Product design
  • Manufacturing design
  • Electrical design
  • Animations design

To make computer-aided design possible, a CAD system is required. This level of work cannot be completed on a basic workstation PC or gaming computer. CAD systems include a combination of hardware and software as well as a mouse, light pen, digitizing tablet and special printer or plotter. CAD systems allow an engineer to view their creations from any angle with the push of a button. Additional tasks that are made possible on these systems include distances, close-ups, lighting effects, modeling and documentation.

Today, CAD systems exist for all the major platforms including Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and UNIX. Let’s take a look at the media and CAD workstations available from Velocity Micro and what you can expect from these powerhouses.

We recommend CAD workstation PCs for the following industries:

  • Manufacturing
  • Construction
  • Drafting
  • Architecture
  • Engineering
  • Artistry

Priced between $999 and $2999, our media creation PCs are perfect for everyday use as well as computer-aided design. Here are some of the features you can expect:

  • Xeon processors
  • NVIDIA Quadro graphics
  • Tesla GPU options
  • Low latency ECC RAM
  • Aluminum chassis
  • Backlit fans
  • Sound dampening
  • Maximized airflow
  • Handbuilt by engineers

In addition to providing users with CAD capabilities, the workstation PCs from Velocity Micro can handle media creation tasks such as filming, editing, photographs and audio. At a modest price point, it’s possible to have a professional media creation PC on a budget. This is important because too many budding artists and designers feel that their creativity is limited because of the hardware they can afford. Our CAD workstation PCs provide these individuals with the tools they need to enjoy a virtual playground and limitless creativity.
