What is CAD Conversion?

CAD Conversion is a term used to convert existing drawing information into CAD (Computer-Aided Design). CAD comes with the information required to design any intended project correctly. Several organizations use technical data and treat it as a critical asset. 

CAD conversion refers to the process of converting data from one CAD (Computer-Aided Design) format to another. This conversion can involve various types of CAD files, such as 2D drawings, 3D models, or assemblies. There are several reasons why CAD conversion may be necessary:

  1. Interoperability: Different CAD software may use proprietary file formats that are not compatible with each other. CAD conversion allows users to translate files from one format to another, enabling interoperability between different CAD platforms.
  2. Legacy Data Conversion: As technology advances and software versions change, older CAD files may become obsolete or incompatible with newer software. CAD conversion helps update legacy data to ensure that it remains accessible and usable with current CAD tools.
  3. Collaboration: When collaborating with partners, suppliers, or clients who use different CAD software, converting files to a common format facilitates seamless communication and exchange of design data.
  4. Standardization: CAD conversion can be used to standardize CAD data across an organization, ensuring consistency and compatibility between different departments or teams that use different CAD systems.
  5. Migration to New Software: When transitioning to new CAD software, existing design data may need to be converted to the new software’s format. CAD conversion facilitates the migration process, allowing users to retain their existing design data while adopting new tools and features.
  6. File Optimization: CAD conversion can also involve optimizing CAD files for specific purposes, such as reducing file size, simplifying geometry, or converting complex models into more efficient representations for visualization or simulation.

This can be required due to:

  • Upgrading the CAD System (2D to 3D CAD Conversion)
  • Installing a CAD System (Paper to CAD)
  • Customer Requirements (DWG to DGN)

We offer excellent CAD conversion services to various engineering and manufacturing companies. We specialise in 2D to 3D Conversion, transforming hand-drawn sketches into fully editable CAD format.

Our team of talented and experienced engineers have rich experience in converting any paper plan and image. Image format includes JPG, GIF, BMP, TIF, and PNG, which are accurately in multi-layered electronic file formats like MCD, DWG, DGN, and DXF. We can work on various source data and deal with multiple conversion hitches such as remodelling, reconstructing, rebuilding, etc. We offer the best CAD file that converts hard-copy paperwork to electronic format. It makes the format copying, editing and drawing easier.

CAD conversion refers to the process of converting design or technical drawings from one format to another, typically involving computer-aided design (CAD) software. This process is often necessary when you have drawings or plans in one CAD format and need to convert them into a different CAD format or when you have paper-based or hand-drawn designs that you want to digitize and work within CAD software.

The reasons for CAD conversion can vary and include:

  1. Interoperability: Different CAD software programs may use different file formats, making it necessary to convert files from one format to another to ensure that they can be opened and edited with the desired software.
  2. Upgrading or Updating: Older CAD files may need to be converted to newer versions of the software to take advantage of updated features and compatibility.
  3. Digitization: Hand-drawn or paper-based designs may need to be converted into a digital CAD format for easier editing, sharing, and archiving.
  4. Standardization: Converting CAD files to a standardized format can ensure consistency and compatibility across different design teams or projects.

The CAD conversion process typically involves importing the existing design into CAD software, adjusting the elements to fit the new format, and then exporting or saving the design in the desired format. This process can be manual or automated, depending on the design’s complexity and the CAD software’s capabilities.

We offer the main CAD Conversion types.

CAD Conversion Services
  • Paper to CAD: Using Paper Drawings to create new CAD Models/Drawings
  • 2D to 3D: Converting AutoCad drawings into 3D CAD Software packages such as Inventor or Solidworks
  • DWG (AutoCAD) to DGN (Bentley Microstation): Mainly for the Rail industry such as London Underground (LUL) or Network Rail
