3D CAD Services

We’ve been providing 3D CAD Services since 1988!

Our professional engineers and architects are qualified to perform any 3D CAD service you require, and can help you solve your problems.

We work with architectural drawings, manufacturing drawings, the auto industry drawings, aerospace drawings, defense department drawings, point clouds, 3d scan meshes, and any other types you may have.

When you need any work on a 3D CAD file, we can do it fast and at a very low cost.

Engineer using a 3D CAD Model Futuristic

We can convert hardcopy documents into any 3D CAD program such as Revit, Solid Works, CATIA, and other 3D programs.

We have been providing 3D CAD services for many years, and we are experts at helping contractors, architects, and the construction community, as well as manufacturing, aerospace, defense and other users of 3D CAD technology.

Innovative firms across the globe rely on us when their models must be 3D CAD Perfect®.

Here are some of the various CAD formats that our experts work with:

  • ASCII (or ASC) – an X, Y, Z point cloud file in ASCII text format.
  • .ASM Solid Edge Assembly File
  • .CAD Autodesk QuickCAD File
    .CATPART CATIA V5 Part File
    .CATPRODUCT CATIA V5 Assembly File

    .PRT Unigraphics Part File
    .PRT CADKEY Part File
  • SLDPRT – a native CAD format for SolidWorks
  • STEP – “Standard for the Exchange of Product model data,” (ISO 10303) an advanced neutral format for exchanging CAD data between many different software programs.
  • STL – “Standard Tessellation Language” – a polygonal model format similar to OBJ and several others
  • WRL (VRML) – “Virtual Reality Modeling Language,” a polygonal file similar to OBJ, STL, and several others and can include color
  • X_T – a semi-neutral CAD format
  • .X_B Parasolid Model Part File
    .X_T Parasolid Model Part File
  • .WRP Geomagic GeomView Design File
  • .Z3 ZW3D, good AutoCAD competitor for 2D and 3D CAD software

“Neutral” 3D CAD Formats

So-called, “neutral” file formats like IGES and STEP were specifically created for the neutral exchange of 3D CAD data across different CAD packages. IGES was created in 1979 by a group of users (including Boeing and GE) with support from the Department of Defense (DoD) and NIST to exchange data more easily. Since the late ’80s the DoD has required that all Digital Project Manufacturing Data (PMI) be deliverable in IGES format.

STEP is an ISO standard released in 1994 to be the “successor” to IGES. While widely used it has never totally replaced the IGES format.

3D Graphics

3D graphics formats are generally proprietary according to the package. Some popular graphics programs are 3D Studio Max, Maya, and Lightwave. Popular gaming companies such as Blizzard Entertainment and other film studios often develop their own in-house formats. However, many consumer 3D graphics packages can import OBJ files.

3D Modeling for Architecture

The use of modeling for facilities, such as buildings and processing plants, is growing rapidly. This 3D CAD Architecture software contains a relational database component to store metadata for the design entities, such as the style and make of windows or doors or the schedule of the I-beams and piping. This is referred to as BIM (Building Information Modeling) and combines facilities management into the database concept as well.

3D Printing

We also offer on-demand online Rapid Prototype Printing, for Prototyping and Rapid Prototyping, as well as Product Design, and Production Parts in Plastic and Metal.
