Well one could integrate a CAD program with say MS Excel to create a bill of materials although some more advanced programs have the capability built right into them.

Hardware relationship would be CNC router or CNC machine, to cut or tool wood and metal products for fabrication.

The construction industry can benefit from CAD when a project is designed in 3D. The 3D model becomes the source of all information as accurate plans, elevations, sections and details can be derived from a single source.

 

Building Information Modeling (BIM) helps to reduce construction costs.

Design site earthworks (e.g. a BMX track) in Civil 3D. Upload the 3D model to the computer built into the grader and the grader then uses machine control to automatically grade (in x, y, z) the real physical surface to match the designed surface.
