9 Criteria for Choosing a 3D CAD System

In many industries 3D CAD software has become the de facto product design tool, but how do you determine which CAD solution is right for you? The white paper will outline the criteria you should consider, including:

  • Information flow through the supply chain—can you share CAD data with customers, suppliers and manufacturing?
  • A rich variety of applications—do the tools allow you to design, test, machine, estimate cost, inspection and beyond?
  • Tools that meet your needs today and in the future—does the system support new technologies or ways of working?
  • Technical support and training—a relationship is more than a sale; does the vendor provide training or have a robust user community?
