3D CAD Designer
 by: Chris Bowling

3D is everywhere nowadays. If you look on TV, or even watch TV it could be on a 3D screen. CAD is software that actually designs 3D objects. These objects are called 3D models and they can be used for a wide variety of things. When a 3D model is completed the file can be sent directly to the manufacturer where it can be produced. CAD conversion is one of the most highly performed practices among CAD designers. The days of using blueprints and a drafting board are over, and the era of the computer is here.

Companies who do advertisement on TV, and online are using more 3D graphics. These 3D images just donít come from anywhere though. Special CAD software programs allow CAD designers to create these 3D models with the use of several 3D shaping commands. Textures, shading, surface materials, and lighting can be applied with this software. The more detail within a design the longer it takes to finish. 3D designers have spent hours and even days creating the most simple objects with CAD software.

3D models arenít just for graphics though. Architectural CAD programs have integrated tools for creating every aspect of the building in 3D. The same goes for mechanical CAD programs. They have incorporated commands for machining holes, threading nuts and bolts, cutting planes, extruding, and revolving just to name a few. 3D models have oriented themselves around every principal of technical drawing. Anything you see around you has been designed with CAD software. The computer at home, the cell phone you use, the car you drive, and the list goes on and on.

So you might ask yourself, what about the old blueprints? Well, thatís where CAD conversion comes in. This is the process of taking the information from a set of blueprints and transferring it into a CAD file. A 3D CAD designer can do this with no problem, and once its done thereís no need to do it again. If the file needs to be changed or updated, the CAD designer simply opens the file, and makes the correction. Whereas if it was a set of blueprints the technical drawing would have to be drawn all over again. On top of all these great advantages to CAD the files can be sent online through an email. This saves time for the customer, and makes the process of production much easier.

The compass, ruler, and drafting board have seen their last days. If someone wants a set of blueprints for use in the field, or anything else the CAD designer can simply print them up. All the text is legible, and there is very little room for error. If an old set of prints needs to be updated the process of CAD conversion will fix it. The 3D CAD designer is a job for people with artistic abilities, and who are good with computer software. Anything that can be imagined with the mind can be designed by a 3D Designer.
