We will create new 3D CAD Models and 2D Drawings from existing Paper Drawings
What is Paper to CAD Conversion?
Paper to CAD Conversion is the procedure converting Paper Drawings (physical or scanned) into 3D CAD models and/or 2D Drawings.
Companies often have libraries of drawings or individual parts which were created prior to CAD (or 3D CAD) and only have the paper drawings on file.
With the digitization of each and every step associated with any particular engineering project, the paper to CAD conversion is an utmost requirement. No doubt, the paper drawings are important but to further continue the project design process and to implement the different engineering technologies, converting the hard copies of drawings to the digital formats is a real necessity.
The conversion process provides the clients with project drawings in fully editable CAD formats. The procedure can be used for the conversion of any type of engineering documents such as the architectural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing drawings. In addition to the engineering drawings, the other drawings that can be converted to CAD are the topographical maps, lease boundaries, contour maps and USGS drawings etc.
What Paper to CAD Conversion Service do we offer?
We offer the accurate paper to CAD conversion services to the companies Australia wide. Our CAD conversion team ensures that every feature and design element of the original drawing is converted to CAD form accurately. We will provide accurate conversion of raster to vector format. We can convert archived paper drawings on A0, A1, A2, A3, E, D and C size to a fully editable CAD file.
Our team converts paper drawings to .dwg or .dxf format. We can also offer PDF to CAD conversion. We can work with either scanned PDF or original PDF format to convert dwg or 3d format.
We will convert existing paper drawings into CAD by either:
- Using the information on paper and create new 3D CAD models using Software such as Solidworks
- From the 3D CAD model create fully dimensioned 2D CAD Drawings
- Using the information on paper create new 2D CAD Drawings in PDF, DWG/DXF format
All our work is carried out in Australia with our Servers also being Australia based. Your information is safe with us.
Benefits of CAD Conversion Services include:
• Overall reduction in the costs of the project.
• Better analysis of data.
• Easy integration and coordination of engineering plans and specifications.
• Easy to store and retrieve the relevant project data.
• Development of good quality digital CAD drawings from even poor quality of hard copies.
During the paper to CAD conversion services, it is essential to check that the digital files that are being developed are dimensionally accurate as per the original paper drawings. The proper engineering standards pertaining to the particular geographical location should also be followed. Professionals with clear knowledge of the computer-aided drafting should be capable of evaluating the scaling and accuracy of the digital drawings.
The paper to CAD conversion services is generally undertaken in two important steps. In the first step, the required drawings and the maps are scanned using the scanners with advanced functionalities. Large-format scanners should be used to get better quality of scanned copies. In the second step, the CAD conversion software is used to digitize the scanned drawings. The different CAD conversion software that is used in the industries includes Autodesk Inventor, DGNLink and CATS etc.
Clients can get their drawings in any particular computer-aided design format as they wish. One of the important things to consider in the paper to CAD conversion procedure is to return the original drawings safely to the clients after the process is over.
How much does a Paper to CAD conversion cost?
We provide fixed cost quotations. As we believe that hourly rates to not reflect the true value of service and do not provide a final cost. We would be able to provide quotes based on samples or a complete drawing package.
CAD 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.
