Introduction: CAD design and drafting services
Transition from Manual to Computer-Aided Drafting
You will be shocked to know that ancient civilizations used to do cave painting and calligraphy well before the paper was invented (By 1300 AD) leading to the emergence of drawings and sketches.
Subsequently in 16th-century academics developed formulae to create geometric figures. Manual drawing was necessary to render these figures.
In the 19th century drawings developed into artistic and design. Design drawings were mainly vector-based.
Before the advent of computers, technical drawing or drafting was a medium of communication for construction. Orthographic Projection system was used to represent 3-dimensional objects in 2-dimension views.
The first innovation in CAD technology happens to be in 1963 when Ivan Sutherland for his Ph.D., created Sketchpad to generate x-y plots which pioneered the use of object-oriented programming in modern CAD systems.
3D modeling emerged for 3-dimensional surfaces and was implemented in software.
Innovation that has occurred in the history of Cad industry and in the future makes us believe that “applications of CAD technology will be limited only by man’s imagination.”
As we know that accurate technical drawings are critical in the early design phase. These technical and engineering drawings serve as instructions that are used in the production of actuals. Accuracy, precision, and quality are of the utmost importance to deliver properly to end-users.
Computer-aided drawing and drafting (CAD) tools have dramatically improved the efficiency of drafting technicians. It has also unlocked the potential for high-quality drafting work to be undertaken remotely.
Entrepreneurs and startups can free up the time & resources needed to hire in-house & budgets while working with experts remotely.

Fast, reliable services improve your design efficiency
Why outsource design and drafting services?
By outsourcing your drafting needs, you can free yourself to focus more on the creative aspects of your design project. You can put your valuable time and resources to best use, and maximize the team’s efficiency. CAD design and drafting services providers are available for both long-term and short-term contract work, allowing you to hire professionals specifically for those tasks when you need them, saving you the cost of keeping staff while allowing you and your team to focus on what you do best. Freelance CAD drafting technicians keep in touch with the latest trends and technologies and are ready to offer their services using whatever software is appropriate for your project.
CAD design and drafting services providers take on any drafting project, including 2D-to-3D CAD conversions, CAD drafting services, and architectural drafting services. Also guarantee high-quality, dimensionally accurate, professional CAD drawings.
What is design & drafting?
Design and drafting are the most common terms used in engineering.
Design is the process of transforming a client’s ideas into life, while drafting is the process of drawing a design.
What is the difference between CAD drafter and designer?
CAD drafters are typically responsible for creating 2D drawings, and CAD designers might take those drafts and convert them into more detailed 3D images.
Drafting services have been used by:
Contractors & Sub-trade contractors
CAD conversions to improve your workflow
Market Survey shows that CAD conversion services are mostly used by Architects, Engineers, and Construction Industry – your biggest client base.
CAD design and drafting services providers are ready to handle any kind of conversions you might expect i.e. convert 2D drawings to 3D, and digitize hand-drawn sketches. You can update your technical drawings for better precision and clarity. Also, convert hard copies to easily manageable and replicable digital files.
CAD design and drafting services providers offer vectorization & blueprint conversion — whatever you need to improve your productivity.
Convert any of your original drafting documents into a precise and accurate multi-layered CAD drawing, or convert from one format to another.
As-built/Redline Mark-up Service is ideal for creating your as-built drawings or design modiﬁcations in AutoCAD or Microstation format.
CAD design and drafting services providers and freelancers can help with all aspects of the product design cycle, and have a wide range of expertise, making them your one-stop shop for all the design services and achieving your project goals.
Also ensures quick turnaround times, accurate drawings, and top-quality work. Thereby meeting and exceeding clients’ expectations. Service providers also guarantee accuracy by having a return back policy.
Take advantage of CAD drafting services for your unique project!
Receive exceptional drafting assistance on your next civil engineering project
Civil Engineering projects such as roads, buildings, water systems, bridges, and subways have a substantial number of public and private stakeholders and capital resources tied to them. So, engineers and contractors must receive accurate and most precise drafts. Drafters and engineers work alongside to develop public assets that are safe and functional.
With the increase in population, there is a need for precise civil engineering higher than it ever has been before. 2D or 3D CAD drafting assistance allows engineers and contractors to create infrastructures and support ever-expanding cities.
Take advantage of expert electrical drafting and design services
We need Electricity for whatever we do. From operating our computers to powering our homes, electrical wiring is much crucial in our lives. There are a variety of challenges and complexities while working with the electrical wiring process and accurate technical drawings are absolutely necessary.
Electrical engineers work alongside drafters to bring technical drawings to life and act as a blueprint to guide contractors and electricians. Today’s technology has made it possible to produce 2D or 3D drafts with CAD (computer-aided design) based software resulting in more visibility rather than on a piece of paper.
Electrical drafting designers can create schematics, system layouts, panel designs, and wiring.
Accuracy, precision, and customization are the key to any drafting project, especially when it comes to electricity. Experience drafters approach every project with these concepts in mind & ever-ready to take work off your hands so you can work on your core business activities.
Allow perfecting your next mechanical drafting project
Are you developing a new robot or perfecting a new automobile engine? If yes, mechanical drafting will be necessary for your design process with the purpose of better understanding of how a mechanical device is assembled and how parts work together for contractors and builders
Again, technical drawings are a necessity to ensure that mechanical devices are created with accuracy and efficiency. Mechanical drafting services providers proficient in working with widely used Autodesk tools like Autodesk Inventor, Sketch-Up, and Solidworks to produce detailed and practical mechanical drafts, allowing to manipulate, edit, and send the designs to others.
In addition to mechanical drafting, CAD design & drafting services providers offer services such as machine drawings, schematics, assembly drawings, and a wide range of other services.
CAD design & drafting services providers offer end-to-end BIM services, allowing clients to use BIM effectively for construction projects.
Core BIM expertise lies in
3D BIM Coordinated Model Clash Coordination
3D Modeling & Visualization
Marketing BIM Presentation
Bill of Materials (BOQ)
Digital Prefabrication/Spool Drawings
3D Model Conversion using Laser Scan or Point Cloud Data
Revit Family Content Generation
Scan to BIM Services
Scan to BIM services is faster, more comprehensive, and most accurate. The use of a 3D scanner and scan to BIM process reduces the chances of rework and saves cost for the company. It smoothens the construction process by providing as-built accurate data.
Hyperlinking PDFs can be a daunting task as it requires painstaking effort to link drawing sets using tools like Bluebeam which helps to navigate through drawing sets at a whisker!
