The 4 Types of CAD Conversion You Should Know About
Since the rising global competition has mandated digital formats over traditional blueprints, it has caused Computer-Aided Design, or CAD, to become one of the most popular applications for curating and managing drawings. In the pre-CAD era, most engineers and designers relied on manual techniques, which means the process was painstakingly tedious and consumed a lot of time and other company resources. Whenever a revision was required, it was truly an arduous task that would sometimes still leave behind certain elements of imperfection that could put the entire project in jeopardy.
Using CAD to improvise or conceive the master drawings can help reduce time while saving a cumulative of over 67% of the costs. However, this means that you will need to convert all your sketches, plans, diagrams, and other files into a CAD format to improvise or modify the original design and make it less prone to errors.
CAD conversion requires converting an image, PDF file, or 2D paper drawing into a CAD file format. This differs from the CAD creation process, which involves drawing an object or a building on CAD from scratch when no previous project record is available in soft or hard format. Master drawings being converted to CAD mean they’re now stored digitally and can be modified further without making any alterations to the originally conceived design. Here are some types of CAD conversions you should know about.
#1 Paper to CAD
Legacy files are often challenging to convert to CAD, as they have to be input in specified ways to facilitate a conversion. However, with paper to CAD conversion services by professionals at ADDMORE Services, you can rest assured that all your legacy sketches, blueprints, hard copy drawings, and other documents that you send us will be converted into the CAD format of your choice.
#2 Image to CAD
Perhaps you have got digital files in the project but not in the proper CAD format. Image to CAD conversion by our professionals will help transform all required image files into a suitable CAD format, such as AutoCAD or more. Our experienced professionals can transform any GIF, JPG, BMP, TIFF, or PNG file into CAD format, saving you time and hassle and ensuring complete accuracy.
#3 PDF to CAD
Every project requires extensive notes and plans to develop. These are often compiled into PDF formats to use conveniently within an agency or company. However, PDF files have several limitations and will eventually need to be transformed into a CAD format. From legacy drawings to hand-written specifications, all can be converted from PDF to CAD.
#4 2D to 3D
2D drafts are essential for several construction and design projects. Whether it’s blueprints or other documents, you will eventually need to convert all the 2D documents into a 3D format. And when the time comes, you should reach out to professionals at ADDMORE Services.
