AutoCAD based software is the most used software in the production and manufacturing field, architecture and by engineers. Today, there are more than 20 odd software in the market and taught by various Unigraphics training institutes. So which one should I earn? This is a very valid question with several answers. For a person who is confused this could be the most annoying thought to have. You can choose to take advice and suggestions from friends and your professors and we can guarantee that everyone will have a different answer, confusing you further.
What to expect with CAD?
Some of the typical answers that you get are go for Catia, Unigraphics NX training, Solidworks and AutoCAD and some names that you might have never heard of before. The decision can be a very difficult one. However, before you get overwhelmed, it is important to realise that in different countries, different software is popular and used by industries. For example Germany-based companies predominantly use CAD. The best suggestion is that it is safe to stick to AutoCAD or a CAD based software like Unigraphics NX.
How is Unigraphics NX training courses going to help me get a job?
One thing you have to understand about CAD is that all the different software that is used is very dynamic even though they are based on CAD. You may be an expert in AutoCAD but finally when you attend the job interview, they might ask you if you know SolidWork for example.
Now you must be thinking that, ‘I’ve to go running around doing another CAD/CAM course in Delhi’. The good news is, it is not required. It may sound funny, but it is the fact of this industry, an ugly truth. However, AutoCAD is widely accepted and since Unigraphic NX is based on AutoCAD it will give you an edge over others.
There are some basic rules you have to adhere to with AutoCAD. The CAD software is available in 3 different levels. Do all the 3 levels and you will be all set. For any future requirement, you can just keep adding on to this foundation course.
Beginner level software is for people who know nothing about CAD: This course covers the basics and here are some specifications about this course level:
- It is mean only for 2D drafting work.
- It is mostly used by small scale and micro manufacturing industries.
- This software is a freebie and also cheap to buy if you have to
- It is not user-friendly
- Example:- AutoCAD 2D, Draftsight
Professional level software is for people who have some idea of CAD but have never used it on the job or practiced much on it.
- It is used in both 2D drafting & 3D modeling work
- It is quite a user-friendly software and is preferred by most of the beginners
- This software is used by small & medium scale industries
- This software is medium priced compared to the basic level software but cheaper than the advanced level software
- Example:- Solidworks, Solid Edge
Advanced level software is a course designed for the gurus of CAD
- Used for all 3 CAD, CAM, CAE work
- This is a very expensive software
- Only top companies use them
- A complex software
More than 50,000 companies use CAD based software and some of the biggest companies of the world are included in this number. In order to fit in anywhere, do all the three levels and you can just about handle any CAD based software.
