well as CS5 software, this is because it is quite easier. This will be essential for 3D modeling. Explain how the range of commands used to produce CAD drawings can impact drawing production There are a range of commands that are used to produce CAD drawings. These commands can impact on the production of drawings whereby the software allows functions that are deemed quite impossible without applying these commands. The commands for the CAD programs are quite often categorized according to their functionalities. This CAD commands functions include file management, drawing, editing, inquiry, display control as well as the dimensions. Using these CAD functions it also helps in creating objects on the computer screen. This will be possible with the help of the drawing commands which form a foundation of any CAD program. In that regard the use of the editing and inquiry commands allows the designer to modify the drawings as well as change the database records for the drawing. Besides, during typical drawing session one may find it necessary to open several drawings for reference purposes. Time and again one may be required to save their work as they navigate through their work. Moreover, in order to come up with elaborate and impressive drawing designs using the CAD program, the designer is expected to execute the trim command. This command allows the user to reduce a line, an arc or object at every intersection of the objects. Therefore, depending on the specifications of the CAD programs it allows us to establish a cutting edge to trim the operations.

8 In addition, there are also the drawing aids in the CAD program. These drawing functionalities are designed with the purpose of speeding up the drawing process as well as maintain the dimensions of the drawing. It is also useful in drafting accuracy as provided by the CAD packaged which has several different drawing aids. There is also the snap function which allows the user to pinpoint object locations of on the screen. A similar action is also defined by the grid command in which the user is able to select and manipulate objects on the screen. Explain the relationship between CAD and other software and hardware used in manufacturing The relationship between CAD and other software programs There are a number of software programs created for the CAD 3D modelling programs. The software and hardware are designed in such way that they have their own special functions and features that are adaptable to the CAD program. Therefore the programs influence the already existing and popular programs, thereby improving the functions of the CAD programs. As such, the CAD software technology is used concurrently with Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. With the help of this software, the designers are able to change the outlook of a business as well as changing the way they function.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
