Computer Aided Drawing, which is basically used to design, develop and optimize products that can be used by the end consumer. It includes detailed engineering which reduce product development expenses and shorten design cycle. It makes future work as simple as possible.
Design specification and measurement are the basic requirements to create CAD drawings. AutoCAD software is used to store or edit drawing digitally. It is possible to convert scanned, faxed or any other manual plans to AutoCAD files, even conversion from raster graphics to vector graphics also possible. Drawings generated by AutoCAD are more accurate and perfect than hand drawings. Electronic drawings save time and storing problem.
Today you find best technology for raster to vector conversion in market. Any file format such as .jpg, .tiff, .pdf, blueprints etc. can be converted in to DXF, DWG, DWF, DGN, MCD or TCW format. It requires high speed CPUs and large amount of RAM to design complex product. CAD software can run on any platform like Windows, Unix, Linux, Mac OSX, etc.
Manual tracing is very important to get accurate outputs. For general and hitech engineering needs, AutoCAD files can be created in 2D and 3D. It is important to follow CAD layering standards while drafting 2D models. 2D drafting service includes: 2D drawing corrections, 2D models from 3D etc. 3D modeling service is used to develop a mathematical wire frame representation of any CAD project.
An advanced computer technology will make engineering design as photorealistic. Animated models, AutoCAD models and solid models can be created in 3D. Stereoscopic 3D models can also be customized. It is possible to generate texturing of 3D models in all sectors. Creating impressive 3D models from paper design is also possible. After the 3D models are created, they can also be rendered with realistic lightings, shadows, atmosphere, color, texture and optical effects such as the refraction of light or motion blur seen on moving objects. By 3D rendering services, once can make 3D models look like photographs and can be inserted into catalogues to save time and money. 3D based CAD services enable clients to understand ideas better. CATIA, PROE, IDEAS, AMD are the best software package to create 3D models.
A wide range of product life cycle management computer based software tools are used for CAD/CAM services. CAD/CAM services are applicable to various sectors of industries like architectural, civil, mechanical, structural, electrical and many others.
Architectural drafting services involve converting rough hand drawings into a complete set of architectural plans. This service is beneficial for architects, real estate developers, interior designers, engineers, consultants, etc. The complete architectural solution in CAD or CAM is achieved by the proper use of architectural CAD packages like ArchiCAD, Chief Architect, Microstation, Vectorworks and ADT.
Mechanical CAD service is beneficial to engineers, design engineers and many such professionals to create assembly drawings for all kinds of mechanical assemblies. It is used to generate separate layers for dimensions, text, body, hidden lines, centerlines etc. in CAD drawings.
Structural drafting services include drawings of structural elements predominan drafting services t in the construction industry including steel, concrete or wood. XSteel is the latest technology for structural drawing, to deal with it, experienced team is needed with good knowledge of AISC, British Codes, Osha Rules and other country specific codes and standards.
Electrical CAD service is beneficial to electrical engineering designers, electrical product manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers, and electrical contractors.
It is also possible to create piping drawing in CAD. Every conceivable fluid is handled in pipes during its production, processing, transportation and use. It involves both orthographic and isometric plumbing and piping drawings. It is possible to convert scanned piping drawings into fully editable, multi-layered CAD drawings.
