Accuracy – an important aspect for 2D to 3D CAD Conversion

Accuracy – an important aspect for 2D to 3D CAD Conversion

  • May 20,2021

2D drawing provides various information on cross-section, dimension which are generally useful in the manufacture of a part of the product. But the 3D CAD drawing permits various separate parts to be assembled which provides an understanding of a complex geometric design.

3D enables you to visualize and understand what an end product would look like.

“Presume you are designing a bicycle and 2D drafting is used for creating the design. This 2D drawing may not provide you with rich and precise detail of the bicycle balance disabling you to understand the balance maintained within the bicycle. That isn’t a case with the 3D model, as it helps you understand the design stability and balance and improve the same if required.”

Usually, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software is used for transforming 2D to 3D. Precision is vital when it comes to 2D to 3D conversion though there are many challenges involved.

Many 2D design is an incomplete depiction. It is to be noted that the transformation of 2D drawings to 3D drawings with CAD software is taking place, other than relevant data few portions are extruded. Conversion can take place as below:

•    Generating elementary geometry (top view)
•    Recognizing anticipated geometry (side and top view)
•    Aligning the above mentioned first two steps (all the geometric views)
•    Extrusion and other 3D steps

While conversion we need to keep in mind that it should be a smooth evolution that retains the required geometry, magnitudes, and covers, here any kinds of extrusion can be exaggerated by the alignment. Here is when we can say that an accurate conversion process enables easier extrusion.

In the current market scenario, there are CAD tools marketed by various designing giants to achieve the adaptation and if there are several visuals snarled which can give a rise to an unwanted issue in the designing process. It would be difficult in transferring data between CAD tools and would delay the actual design work. Services of CAD expert are important here as it helps in generating a 3D model from 2D drafting.

This is why it becomes more obvious to approach a professional CAD conversion service provider which does not only have vast experience in CAD conversion services but are delivers results with great accuracy.

Engineering Technique is an India-based 3D CAD & 3D Printing Solutions company that provides Engineering Design Services include mechanical design, CAD conversion, 3D design, 3D CAD modeling, product design development, reverse engineering, and the like. The company prides itself in achieving diverse business goals swiftly with quality-oriented solutions for consistent product design innovation.
