A new understanding of two-dimensional CAD


product innovation is the inexhaustible driving force for enterprise development, and the application of cad/cam technology is the means of design and innovation. In the development of manufacturing informatization, two-dimensional CAD technology, as a mature and popular technology, has been widely used in enterprises and has become the real productivity of enterprises. The gradual in-depth application and popularization of two-dimensional CAD software has reached a high level. Enterprises are also turning from two-dimensional to three-dimensional CAD to deepen the application

3D CAD is not only the upgrade of 2D CAD. Its 3D solid modeling, surface design and parametric driving have completely changed the design habits of designers, making the design process closely related to the final product, and greatly improving the design speed and quality. When the product design of manufacturing industry is gradually transferred from 2D to 3D, 3D will become the mainstream, and CAD will also usher in the 3D era. So, where will the future development of 2D CAD software go

two dimensional CA is still a big market in all kinds of conventional plastic granulator equipment that are most widely used.

China has started from "plate rejection" to "1215" project, and then to the national promotion of manufacturing informatization project. With the gradual popularization of the application of two-dimensional software, two-dimensional CAD plays a decisive leading role in the process of manufacturing informatization

in the process of the transformation from two-dimensional CAD to three-dimensional CAD application, the application of three-dimensional CAD has become a trend. After more than ten years of promotion and application of three-dimensional CAD technology, the mainstream three-dimensional CAD has gradually become mature in technology. From a very long-term perspective, three-dimensional is a major direction of CAD technology development, but the market space of two-dimensional CAD is still very huge at present, because it has the largest user group in the field of CAD. From the current research and development maturity of CAD technology in China, as well as the degree of user understanding, mastery and popularization, it is expected that two-dimensional CAD will still occupy the mainstream in the whole market for a long time in the future (such as 20 years)

there has always been an argument that 3D CAD will replace 2D CAD. However, the competitive advantages of 2D CAD in service training, channel strategy and mature industries cannot be replaced by 3D CAD. First, the functions of 2D CAD can meet the needs of customers, so why do users spend more money on high-end 3D CAD software? In addition, as a unit technology in the information field with a long history, 2D CAD can give full play to the strategies of mature industries, and can help many customers provide solutions only with rich experience and services. So at least for now, 2D CAD cannot be replaced by 3D CAD

the application of two-dimensional CAD is still in its infancy

the application of two-dimensional CAD is the basis of enterprise informatization. After years of development, the application of two-dimensional CAD still occupies the dominant position in the market, but at present, most of the two-dimensional CAD in the market only plays the role of "drawing tool", far from playing its due role

two dimensional CAD software is not only to liberate the productivity of designers, but also to truly improve the overall efficiency of enterprises, we must apply CAPP, cam, PDM, ERP and other software, and integrate the information of these software, and finally realize the information integration of enterprises

today's two-dimensional CAD is not what it used to be. Don't understand CAD as a simple "drawing" tool. Its embodiment in informatization is much higher than that of toolization. Like Tianhe CAD software, the system directly extracts information from drawings and quickly generates various production and management reports. It not only ensures the accuracy of the data, but also ensures the timeliness of the data. Through the data extraction function and flexible reporting methods, the data is extracted and the reports required by each department are formed as required. Previously, it required a lot of labor and cost. Now, it only needs a few clicks of the mouse, which created great value for the enterprise. There are many similar "functions", which are far beyond the scope of "drawing"

many large enterprises are engaged in three-dimensional design software, mainly running large software on workstations, such as PR constantly seeking excellent o/e, CATIA, I-DEAS, Euclid and UGII. These software structures are huge and complex, the use of which requires high quality of personnel, and the price of software and hardware is expensive. At present, it is difficult to popularize and promote in enterprises

many people believe that 2D CAD can't provide innovative ability, but can only reduce costs. This understanding is completely wrong. CAD technology is only a means of design, a means of expressing design creativity, not an innovative theme. How to give full play to their own advantages and improve their innovation ability, enterprises need to solve the problem of technological innovation. Due to the popularization and Deepening Application of two-dimensional CAD, technicians are liberated from the heavy drawing work, so they have more time to invest in the work of technology and process innovation, and accelerate the innovation and progress of internal technology

two dimensional CAD and three-dimensional CAD have their own advantages. Three dimensional CAD has obvious advantages in product modeling, simulation optimization, engineering analysis, visual effects and so on. However, 2D CAD has accumulated countless experience, standards and specifications in many aspects of engineering expression, which conforms to the expression habits of engineering language for hundreds of years. Therefore, 2D CAD is more concise than 3D CAD on many occasions

every enterprise has its own characteristics, and there is no certain standard matching mode. However, enterprises should match reasonable three-dimensional CAD and two-dimensional CAD according to their own product characteristics, R & D budget, production and R & D, personnel quality, organizational structure and other characteristics, so as to get more economical and effective results. In some fields, such as single piece and small batch enterprises, some non-standard design and manufacturing enterprises, two-dimensional CAD is the absolute main force, and three-dimensional CAD is almost useless

development trend of two-dimensional CAD

since the market space of two-dimensional CAD is still large and its application is still very elementary, there is no reason to think that two-dimensional CAD will not develop. In fact, there is still a huge space for the development of 2D CAD, and there are still many things to be done

1. 2D CAD with independent copyright will gradually erode the market space of Acad, and the technology will tend to be close. The cost performance of domestic 2D CAD is very high

2. Gradually subdivide professional applications, platform 2D CAD will gradually decrease in applications, and more and more professional value-added systems will be developed

3. Collaboration, sharing, intelligent tools, management tools, data mining, etc. outside the drawing are powerful means to enhance designers' innovation. The development of 2D CAD from "toolization" to "informatization" is the most important trend

4. Enterprises do not pay enough attention to the standardization and application of two-dimensional CAD technology. Standardizing and standardizing the application of two-dimensional CAD is the first step to deepen the application of CAD. Its role in promoting enterprise informatization is even more than its own main job (design tool)

5. CAD is the first step in the long march of informatization. From the perspective of enterprise overall informatization, the application of 2D CAD cannot be isolated. It must be integrated into the platform of enterprise overall informatization. 2D CAD is bound to be more integrated with PLM and other integrated systems, and more integrated with various professional applications

6. Opening and integration:

1) it supports strong secondary development functions and customization functions, and needs to be very open

2) it needs to be well integrated with pdmplmerp and other solutions

3) it needs to be well integrated with 3D CAD system in order to make better use of the achievements of the original 2D design


in fact, China's 2D CAD market has been growing steadily. The revival of China's two-dimensional CAD market since 2006 once again shows that technology is not the primary factor determining the success or failure of a manufacturer in the market, and the urgent appeal to the state to strengthen the construction of the standard system to truly meet the reality of the target customers is the key factor for the success of manufacturers

in fact, the success of all products to the market represents the value of their existence and demand. To a large extent, the space for their continued progress also comes from the word "demand". With more and more users from all walks of life, the demand will be more and more detailed. The demand is endless, and the space for natural expansion is infinite

to win the recognition of more customers, the most fundamental thing is to improve the cost performance of products, provide customers with better services, and bring customers greater confidence. As an application software, CAD software is most concerned about whether the product is easy to use. In this process, who can think more and do more for customers will win the support of customers.
