We will be taking a relatively shallow dive into the process of designing and creating a project in computer aided design (CAD) software. In this dive, we will touch on what CAD is, where it came from, and where it is used in our world today. We will also take a look at the process I took and the end results obtained from that process. We will also be flying a drone that I built along with my mentor Dr. Liu Yanfei.
