The humble 2D drawing has come a long way, - the printed drawing is still often the final method of
conveying information to others, they are thus very important in terms of accuracy and clarity.
Whether it's engineering drawings, product proposals, plans or layouts, we are equally capable.
Where colour coded symbols and tables are used we can apply symbols that may be easily updated
should their size, colour, or shape change. Other areas are optical scanning, tracing, vectorisation,
GA and detail drawings, bills of materials BOM's, re-drawing of manual and old style cad drawings etc.
3D CAD and
The choice of whether to design in Solidworks 2012 or Inventor 2012 is usually down to whether we are utilising any existing design files, the requirements in the design and the final outputs required.
In most cases we use Inventor as changes are easily performed thanks to parametric design enabling features, and relationships between parts to be controlled (constrained) by editable parameters.
Designing in 3D means faster turnaround times, and the ability to take advantage of rapid prototyping,
and the vast range of other CNC equipment available to produce real prototypes and working models.
3D printing is a rapidly evolving area of engineering, for this reason we outsource our 3D CAD data enabling us to choose from any 3D printing system and the most up to date 3D printing media available.
We can take an existing product and transfer it to CAD, leave it as it is or modify it to create a new
variety to the product. This applies to existing 2D or 3D CAD geometry, physical objects, parts or assemblies, and even photographs.
