CAD CAE is computer aided design and computer aided engineering respectively, and though both these software tools work on 3D models, there is a huge difference in the purpose of using these tools.
CAD is all about the creation and generation of the 3D model, in other words – the design; whereas CAE is all about testing the characteristics (like material, fatigue, strength of the product) using engineering methods.
Benefits of CAD
The advantages of CAD software include the ability to produce very accurate designs. Both 2 and 3 dimensional drawings can be created and rotated on computer screens.
Other computer programs can also be linked to this software and unlike manual drafting, you do not have to determine the scale of the view, before you start drawing.
Benefits of CAE
Reducing the overall cost of production and the time it takes to develop the product is the biggest advantage of CAE. It also ensures that the products are of higher quality and more durable. It also eliminates the need of relying on the costly and time consuming process of creating and testing physical prototypes because engineers can use computer based simulations to refine and evaluate their designs.
Frequent changes to the design of the product makes product design and manufacturing very cash intensive. CAE enables engineers and designers to make changes in the earlier stages and detect faults with the product in time to eliminate them.
Together both CAD CAE integrated software tools help designers and engineers through the stages of designing, prototyping, testing and manufacturing the end- product.
