CAD in the cloud

Product Modeling: online VS offline

67 Shares

The global cloud computing market share in 2020 was ‎estimated at $ ‎‎371.4 billion, and by 2025 analysts predict more ‎than twofold growth – to ‎‎$ 832.2 billion with an average ‎annual growth rate of 17.5%.‎

All technologies going to the cloud?

In 2020, cloud services were the only way for many companies ‎to ‎survive the crisis caused by the pandemic, for continuing ‎work, and ‎cooperating with customers and partners. Their spending has ‎skyrocketed. Thus, according to IDC, corporate ‎spending on cloud ‎technologies last year increased globally by ‎‎34.4% compared to the ‎previous year, while spending on IT, not ‎related to cloud technologies, ‎decreased by 8%.‎

Cybersecurity expert and entrepreneur Tyler Shields notes that the ‎migration process is easier for young companies, while large enterprises ‎with a long history and legacy will need a longer transition period. But the ‎benefits of cloud technology seem to outweigh the challenges of the ‎transition: in 2021, 59% of organizations globally will migrate to the cloud.‎

The present and the future of CAD

Software technologies are evolving rapidly, with continuous improvements. These programs are becoming important in different sectors and for more and more different applications. The increasing use of computer-aided design (CAD) systems is driving the evolution of the industry. Indeed, CAD programs need to be adapted to the new realities.

The growing use of CAD software is leading to new trends and new evolutions. Let’s see what will be improved in the coming years for these programs.

Automation and artificial intelligence in CAD industry

Automation is one of the main trends these years, for sure. It is visible in different sectors due to the development of AI. Its adoption grows more and more along with 3D modeling software. Indeed, today CAD programs can anticipate our actions and improve our 3D modeling experience by allowing users to correct or anticipate design errors.

Automation improves work and allows us to avoid many 3D modeling problems. Thanks to artificial intelligence, these programs gradually become smarter. Many software companies are already embedding AI in their programs, and this has become even more common in recent years, allowing for the automation of design tasks. This creates new quality control functions, always improving the work and products of the companies working on these programs.

A virtual reality

The gap between 3D CAD and reality gets thinner with CAD software. Visualization and rendering are constantly improving. CAD tools need to get good 3D tools for these features to bring 3D models closer to reality and achieve the best design preview possible.

Cloud + CAD – a match made in heaven

3D modeling software may have some limitations: these 3D programs were quite “heavy”, running on only one computer. With the growing use of the cloud, a lot of applications and software are now located in the cloud. Cloud-based CAD software can be accessed from anywhere in the world and does not need any installation process: they are called SaaS or Software-as-a-Service.

With a cloud-based CAD program, you don’t have to worry about updates or data management as you get universal access to all your data.

Moving to SaaS is changing the way we design and work together. CAD users need closer collaboration with their team. This is why the cloud is becoming so important: It improves collaboration by allowing multiple people to work on the same file at the same time. Increased collaboration is now something very important – increasing efficiency and teamwork.

Cloud computing software is now widespread in almost all industries! With a cloud-based CAD program, you don’t have to worry about updates or data management as you get universal access to all your data. Cloud applications have undeniably huge advantages, and they are likely to grow significantly in-market presence in the coming years.

The future of product design engineering

Product design is one of the activities of a mechanical engineer. At the design stage, the main parameters of the future product are laid. Typically, the design includes time-consuming calculations and the preparation of a variety of documentation. Today modern engineering tools are here to fasten the process and take product design engineering to the next level.

Product design in cloud based platform

Because of new technologies, we’re able to solve problems and create more opportunities with online cloud-based CAD platforms

As the clients always seek more sophisticated customization, the constant changes in used processes take place while designing a product. The urgent need for alternate sources, components, and materials today for disrupted supply chains, forces manufacturers to demonstrate maximum flexibility along with minimizing waste. The product is no more a statistical object. The end product continues developing and enlarging functionality after it was delivered. This poses new challenges for designers, engineers, and manufacturers. However, because of new technologies, we’re able to solve problems and create more opportunities.

The technologies like AI, Virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) support designers in the early stages of product design to visualize the physical products.

What are the top benefits of using cloud CAD services

  • Strategic value
    Cloud services provide a competitive edge by empowering businesses to take advantage of the latest technology.
  • Scalability
    Cloud infrastructure scales on-demand to support rapidly changing workloads.
  • Storage options
    Users can choose from public, private, or hybrid storage offerings based on security and other considerations.
  • Control capabilities
    The organization’s control is determined by the type of solution-as-a-service model. These are SaaS (software as a service), PaaS (platform as a service), and IaaS (infrastructure as a service).
  • Availability
    Online design tools and data are available with almost all the devices connected to the Internet.

Rendering quality now goes a step further: VR options have now become common features in CAD software. Some 3D models can be viewed as if they existed in physical space thanks to virtual reality helmets. This is especially useful in sectors such as architecture, and some software markers are starting to develop their software to be compatible with 3D viewing equipment.

New virtual reality capabilities could be unveiled in the coming years as this technology seems promising for many different industries.
