60 CAD Projects for Mechanical Engineering Students [In Detail]

Download the PDF below!

CAD or CAM plays a vital role in the field of Mechanical Engineering. As we already know that CAD stands for Computer-Aided Design and CAM stands for Computer-Aided Manufacturing.

To do the analysis, the modelling of the product has to be made using CAD software and If any operation is to be applied on that product, then it should have to undergo the manufacturing process using CAM Software.

Finally, the analysis was made on that product. In this article, I will be explaining about the CAD Projects for Mechanical Engineering in a broader way.

A Demo of CAD CAM Model

First come to Analysis:

The compulsory parameter in the analysis part is the application of load. Depending upon the application of load only, the stresses develop inside the material and theses stresses (Vonmises stress) should be less than the yield point of the material. Then only the material is safe else it is of a failure case. For that, the suitable CAD or CAM Projects are chosen from this list which I am providing below for all the mechanical graduates or students.
