CNC Basics E-Course 3 | CAD | Learn CAD Video | CAD/CAM Tips

In this CNC Basics Video we go over CAD. CAD Stands for Computer Aided Design. During the CAD step we take our initial design and translate it into the computer. We do this CNC Step so we can change the design, resize it, save it, transfer it to someone else, etc. Recording our CNC Design into CAD gives us flexibility.
During CAD we learn we first design parts, then assemblies, then groups, then machines. We also learn there are different types of CAD Software. 2D, 2.5D and 3D. These types also come in different software packages from inexpensive to expensive. You can spend up to the sky if you want.
The trick is to match the CAD Software Capabilites with your CNC Needs. You don’t need high power 3D Modeling CAD if you make simple parts day in and day out.
Tomorrow’s lesson is CAM. Computer Aided Manufacturing.
