CAD design engineers are responsible for designing new products using computer-aided design software applications such as AutoCAD, Pro/ENGINEER, and SolidWorks. CAD design engineers handle the most complex aspects of the design process, and may oversee a team of drafters. Many CAD design engineers also have a hand in the manufacturing process; they may create prototypes of the products they've helped to develop and make design improvements based on prototype testing.
AutoCAD designers will also work in a team environment of drafters, designers, and engineers While design engineers set the framework for a project, they may work closely with industrial engineers and packaging engineers to develop, market, and implement their product.
An AutoCAD designer works directly with engineering teams, and takes direction to generate two- and three-dimensional models and drawings using AutoCAD software. They create original drawings from hand sketches, and design specifications from concept to completion.
to ensure accuracy and best practices of the designed product or concept for the organization.
