Case study on the application of a cloud-based CAD system in design teaching

  • Besides of conventional CAD systems, new, cloud-based CAD systems have also been available for some years. These CAD systems designed according to the principle of software as a service (SaaS) differ in some important features from the conventional CAD systems. Thus, these CAD systems are operated via a browser and it is not necessary to install the software on a computer. The CAD-data is storedBesides of conventional CAD systems, new, cloud-based CAD systems have also been available for some years. These CAD systems designed according to the principle of software as a service (SaaS) differ in some important features from the conventional CAD systems. Thus, these CAD systems are operated via a browser and it is not necessary to install the software on a computer. The CAD-data is stored in the cloud and not on a local computer or central server. This new approach should also facilitate the sharing and management of data. Finally, many of these new CAD systems are available as freeware for education purposes, so the universities can save license costs. This contribution examines newly developed, cloud-based CAD systems. In the context of a case study, the application of these new CAD systems are investigated in the training of engineers in design education. Thus, the students compare a conventional and a cloud-based CAD system as part of an exercise of designing and 3D modelling of a pinion shaft. Subsequently, the students manufacture a drawing with different views of the pinion shaft. This assessment evaluates different criteria such as user-friendliness, tutorial support and installation effort.show moreshow less
