Computer-Aided Design (CAD) allows for a 3-dimensional (3D) representation of the physical components in a design.

OpenMETA has generic support for integrating CAD tools. This support allows for OpenMETA components to reference CAD part and assembly files and to expose parameters, CAD datums, and features of those parts and assemblies. Exposed CAD datums can then be used to compose CAD assemblies.
