What is a 3D CAD Modelling Service?

A 3D CAD Modelling Service uses 3D CAD Software such as Solidworks, Inventor, Catia or Pro-E for creating components in 3D. 3D CAD packages (as the name suggest) create 3D CAD models first from which one then an produce:

  • Fully Dimensioned Drawings to Australian Standard

  • Renders/Visualisations

  • 3D Print files (STL)

  • Interference Checks (Collisions, Alignment etc.)

  • Animations

What 3D CAD Modelling Services does Australian Design & Drafting offer?

Most of our Designs start in 3D CAD, even though the drawings such as Manufacturing Drawings are 2D (so you can print them on paper). We only use 2D CAD (Autodesk AutoCad) for simple Mechanical & Electrical Drawings (MEP) as well as Schematics. Everything else gets created in 3D first, which is a far more efficient way to produce drawings these days.

Also relevant is that changes to parts do not get carried out within the drawings but within the 3D CAD model. The Drawings update automatically (one might have to add/delete a dimension or two). However, one does not have to update all the drawings views and check that they all align.

The majority of our projects are carried out with Solidworks. We own several Solidworks licenses which are supplied by our VAR.

Drawings Types that start of as 3D Models are:

  • Datasheets

  • Manufacturing Drawings

  • Fabrication Drawings

  • Patent Drawings

  • Shop Drawings

2D Drafting Design Tools and Software

Our Expert Engineers & Drafters are versatile enough to use any software that your process might require. We have successfully managed Drafting and Design projects involving software such as AutoCAD, ArchiCAD,Solidworks, Revit Architecture, Architectural Desktop, Microstation, and 3D Studio Max.
