Most Engineering manufacturing companies also use this process, whether it be for tanks, cars or motorbikes, to name a few.

By using CAD, members of the team are able take out virtual tests to see whether their ideas are road-worthy or if their designs can be put into practice.

By doing this in CAD, time is saved, as the designs can be altered on a computer rather than on a real-life project.
