Abstract

Computer graphics matured over many years and played an important role in the development of engineering products like automotive and aircraft components. The current CAX (CAD/CAM/CAE) tools use computer graphics extensively, while helping in conceiving better designs with improved quality. Nowadays, engineering product development is being done concurrently and collaboratively, due to the advances in computer graphics. This paper presents a brief overview on evolution of computer graphics over the decades and its impact on the engineering product development. Conceptual analysis is done in order to find out the impact of computer graphics on engineering product development. It also attempts to present, how advances in computer graphics, have revolutionized the current engineering product development and what future technologies will offer.
