In the history of CAD the CADAM product has probably been the most copied product of all. It has been the most productive 2D and 2-1/2D tool, and those who have implemented this tool continue to use it for years, indeed decades. Many companies have relied on CADAM as their primary CAD engineering tool.

The life of CADAM is now reaching 40 years. No other CAD tool has remained viable for so long a period. The advantage, of course, with software, is that it can continue to be improved and renewed so that its viability, indeed vitality can increase with age given a quality foundation and continued design vision. CADAM, now called CATIA CADAM Drafting or CCD, has continued to renew and improve itself so that it continues to be the tool of choice for many companies.

Although the strategy and vision of Dassault Systemes is 3D, it is clear that many companies will continue to have 2D or 2-1/2D requirements for many years to come. At some time, 2D will cease to be a major requirement. When that happens, it will be appropriate to retire CCD. No one can accurately predict when that might be, but it is probably not within the next decade, and may not be for many years after that.

CADAM works with the following file extensions:

The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
