Gone are the days when making engineering drawings were a manual process. Similarly, the manufacturing that used to be done in factories, some decades back, used to be heavily labour oriented. But with the advent of computers and development in many software applications, manual drawing or drafting of designs are now totally done away. Now computers do the needful for us. Software like AutoCAD and others have totally revolutionized the concept of designing. Designing or drafting is no more a tedious process. Same is true for CAM, which has revolutionized the production process. CNC machines are the norms in the factories these days. Production is now a lot faster, precise, error-free and with the least of wastage.
