Computer Aided Design (CAD) For Linux

Undefined

A Computer Aided Design (CAD) program is mainly used by engineering students or graduate engineers to create drawings in 2D or 3D.

The term refers to digital based design and creation of technical drawings used in design and architecture.

CAD technology has developed dramatically during the 1980s and 1990s. Initially, the technology was used exclusively to attempt to imitate manuscript drawings and the like. The development has made it possible to quickly produce 3D visualizations and integrate, for example, the architectural and engineer's traditional business areas.

The benefits of CAD include:

  • Reuse of design elements.
  • Quick changes to existing drawings.
  • The ability to evaluate design against regulations.
  • Trendy simulation of design without prototypes.
  • The ability to integrate drawings with database applications.
  • Among the results that can be obtained from a CAD program can be mentioned.
  • Solid Models.
  • Wireframes.
  • Graphical representations of facilities and databases.
  • Parameter dependent models.
  • Real-time simulations of different processes.
  • Possibility of using Computer Aided Manufacturing, CAM.
  • Numerical instruction sequences that can be sent directly to the production line. (Computer Numerical Control (CNC) control files).
  • Analysis and evaluation of, for example, the constructive properties of components in complex systems. (Finite Element Analysis (FEA)).
  • Automation in the electronics industry - Electronic Design Automation (EDA).
  • Possibility to use Friform production.

The most famous CAD tool is undoubtedly Autodesk Autocad 2D / 3D and their various plug-ins that you can buy. Autodesk products are only available for Windows and MACOSX and will not be listed below.

Games For Linux

Windows has always been the preferred platform for gaming, but after STEAM's interest in Linux more game developers are making their games natively available for Linux.
