What is CAD?
CAD stands for ‘Computer Aided Design’, and is a computer technology used to aid designers and engineers in creating a wide range of 3D and 2D documents and visuals. Popular uses include blueprints and designs for architects, prototypes for product designers and technical, mechanical drawings for engineers.
It’s a vital piece of software across a number of different industries and occupations. CAD has essentially replaced manual drafting and drawings and has completely modernised the design process. The time efficiency and versatility of CAD is a considerable benefit when adaptations are needed.
What is a workstation?
A workstation is the device on which you view your CAD software. A well-built CAD or CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) workstation lends itself well to increased productivity without compromising on exceptional high-quality. A standard computer does not support the software adequately, so a dedicated workstation is necessary for working professionals.

Why is your choice of workstation so important?
Using the most up-to-date systems and technology to ensure your workstation is as cutting-edge as possible. Systems can become dated very easily, it’s not long before the newest versions or next innovation comes out and suddenly your system is no longer the quickest or most powerful available.
At Proline, we consider this with each build, always looking to see what the latest updates are to ensure our workstations are always changing to suit new components. We consider how your workstation can help keep you ahead of your competitors and support you where you need it the most. For many large enterprises, a high-end workstation is crucial to improving the reliability of your systems as well as the overall power and efficiency.
