Due to the advancement of 3-D computer-aided design software, enclosure manufacturing is not what it used to be. Technology advances industry. The Wright Brothers' flyer, for example, is no match to the United States' newest F/A-22 stealth fighters. Nor should a standard enclosure be acceptable when 3-D CAD software makes custom work more affordable and easier than ever.
Since the mid-1980s, CAD programs have evolved to the point where they can handle 3-D modeling. The biggest benefit of 3-D CAD modeling software is that it gives engineers the ability to layer in a combination of architectural, engineering, and construction views along with the associated technical language into one single image. The software acts almost like a translator at the United Nations: It understands and combines multiple technical languages and then transfers them to a universal, three-dimensional image that is easy to comprehend.
