3D CAD: It's Not Just for Big Jobs Anymore
For decades, big integrated 3D design systems competed with 2D drafting tools. 3D Computer Aided (CA) DESIGN systems render drawings from specialized databases using tools and rules to find errors and assure quality. 2D CA DRAFTING tools create drawings cheaply and efficiently, relying on the designer to catch any problems. However, nowadays there's no reason why almost all piping design jobs shouldn't be routed in 3D instead of in 2D or on the board. Today’s 3D CAD is just too cost-effective not to be used nearly everywhere. The design/drafting competition has evolved into big vs. little integrated systems. Drafting software is merely a platform for advanced design tools.
