When paper or mylar drawings (blueprints, etc.) are scanned the digital files that are created are raster files, usually in a tiff format.  Those raster files must then be vectorized in order to be written as CAD files and access to an organization’s CAD system.   This process is called raster to vector conversion.

When doing raster to vector conversions like these, CAD / CAM Services uses a proprietary method that electronically compensates for error within each five- or ten-inches to restore original drawing accuracy.

This is a Boeing and Lockheed certifiable tolerance for aircraft drawings.  CAD / CAM’s raster to vector process is the only method that can provide this type of accuracy, with the electronic image becoming even better than the original. CAD / CAM’s method is cost significantly less than other methods.Frank Maschino, Engineering Data Manager, at Tinker Air Force Base says, “The accuracy of the final digital CAD file is of paramount importance to us. These CAD files are stored in Tinker Air Force Base’s electronic repository as a permanent archive for all of our drawings. If we need to refer to these CAD drawings or print out a new paper drawing, it is essential that the measurements be as accurate as, if not better than the original Mylar drawing when it was new.”

CAD CAM Services raster to vector conversion process gave Tinker Air Force Base the results they needed.
