Are you ready to set up your CAD system for the new year. Your CAD gear, whether you are a professional or a hobbyist, is the key to a successful CAD session. This article will help you to identify the essential items you need for a setup (workspace and workstation).

Ergonomic Workspace for CAD


The ergonomics of your sitting position is the most important thing to consider. Long, productive hours don’t require you running as much as in marathon training. You should consider a combination of a table and a chair that you are comfortable sitting on. If you are looking for a unique chair/furniture combination, you should consider it. Otherwise, furniture combinations will help you choose the right package by allowing you to preview the product in real time. Take a look at our top picks for inventor furniture.


Arm rests for chairs should have adjustments to the back and rests. Because of the long sitting hours required (especially for home-users), the back support for the chair should be strong. The best choice for the sitting area is foam with similar texture skin (I can’t stand leather). A rolling chair is the best option for computer work spaces.

Effective Lighting

While it is possible to have too many lights, too few is a bad thing. A proper light source is at the very least one that you can use for work, and which has additional support for other purposes. There are many options for table-clamping lamps, including different sizes and shapes as well as lighting options such as bulbs, LEDs, etc. Additional light sources are recommended for backup. I have one desk lamp and one tube lighting on the wall that is 2-feet higher than my monitor setup. It’s tilted in my direction, it provides ample light throughout the day (pun intended).


A backup storage medium is essential in a world where selfies are more important than ever. You are letting yourself be victimized (virtual threats include corrupting malware, whereas physical threats can include larceny or vandalism). Also, you are ensuring that there is no way to regain your credibility (portfolios, projects, etc. ).
