In fact, the visualization tools in CAID systems can make designs look so realistic that it is hard to tell whether they are real or rendered.
Some designs, such as sunglasses or a toothbrush, have a fairly simple structure so they can be created in a CAID system and go straight through to manufacturing, speeding up the production process.
Because the CAID system creates 3D models, the files can be exported and dropped into CAD formats such as Pro/Engineer or Solidworks, which engineers will use to add the new parts.
If engineering data is imported into a CAID system, a shell or external surface can be designed right on top of the engineering criteria.
