CAD

Computer-aided development and design, which originally intended the use of computers as a merely assistive device for technical drawing.

In the meantime, the third dimension (3D) has been added for almost all CAD applications. Consequently, CAD now also refers to development of virtual models and three-dimensional objects with the help of computers. The main components of CAD systems still are hardware, system software, and application software.
