Computer Aided Design
Computer-aided drafting (CAD) also known as Mechanical Design Automation (MDA) is used in the creation, analysis and optimization of a design. A robust CAD system increases the quality of design along with creating efficiencies in productivity of the design team. An HPC system allows CAD users to design and test industrial and architectural designs in both two and three dimensions in nearly all engineering and design professions. Designers use HPC systems in the design of automobiles, aerospace, oil field tools and medical prosthetics. Other industries are now using CAD for computer animation and special effects.
The days of the hand drawn design is essentially at an end as nearly all design work is now performed using a CAD system. In addition, small and medium businesses (SMB) realize real competitive advantages by having a powerful and efficient CAD system. In the past, high performance clusters were out of the reach of most of these companies. With advances in technology and scalability, SMB companies can invest in a modestly priced system that is scaled to their level and for the specific CAD system employed.
NSG specializes in providing 2 – 64 node clusters for the SMB market and can design a system that offers you the best value for your budget. NSG solutions are based on tier one manufacturers like Hewlett Packard and Hitachi.
