Will 2015 be the Year CAD Comes to Your Home?

May 6, 2015

Here at CAD Designers, we are very excited to see the rise in popularity with 3D printing, in both the commercial and residential markets. As 3D printing continues to grow, we would like to take a moment to share some ways our customers may find themselves using computer aided design this year.

Affordable Computer Aided Design Options for Your Home

Kickstarter, a leader in pitching innovative designs, recently introduced the world to Tiko, a unibody 3D printer that is planned to hit the market for only $179. With more options for 3D printing under $500 coming out, now is a great time to start working on CAD projects at home.

While not a replacement for CAD Designers professional expertise in computer aided drafting services for structural drafting, environmental drafting and other commercial spaces, these budget devices could serve as a great creative outlet.

Availability of Computer Aided Design Products on the Rise

Early adopters are probably aware of popular software options, such as Tinkercad and Autocad, but some brands that have become staples in the industry are also introducing options to make computer aided design more accessible than ever.

Adobe’s Photoshop Creative Cloud has the ability to build and perform simple adjustments to 3D designs. Also, recent reports seem to indicate that Apple is experimenting with upgrading their trackpad to simulate temperatures, materials and more. Having a more responsive trackpad will make computer aided design more intuitive to all users. With companies making strides to embrace CAD anyone, from a hobbyist, to those looking to work with CAD as a profession, have many more options available than any previous year.
