How a CAD / CAM Service Ensures Simple SolidWorks Models
A CAD / CAM service uses software such as SolidWorks to generate 2D or 3D representations of components and assemblies. CAD modeling is a key ingredient in its product development services. Aside from initial brainstorming and sketching, they leverage CAD in nearly every part of their product development process in one way or another.
Often, rough 3D models are utilized to convey concepts, while detailed 3D models are created throughout the design process. These models, which include simple SolidWorks models, are used to create photorealistic renderings for marketing purposes, perform computer-aided engineering (CAE) analysis runs, or program manufacturing operations.
For manufacturing specifications and documentation, CAD / CAM services typically use 2D CAD drawings. However, the backbone of most of their engineering designs is 3D CAD modeling. The CAD / CAM service can create accurate component CAD models to allow you to virtually assemble your product, ensuring that everything fits together and the required design goals are achieved.
In addition to the above, a CAD / CAM service can pull various parameters from the CAD models before any prototypes are built including weight, the center of mass location, moments of inertia, and more. The following are some of the ways using a CAD / CAM service for SolidWorks models can benefit you.
2D Drafting, Technical Drawings, and Documentation
A CAD / CAM service can take the 3D part and assembly models in SolidWorks and link them to 2D drawings and documentation. Additionally, any future changes to the 3D model are updated to the 2D drawing as they are linked. Drawings are available to the customer in various formats. This is for ease of communication with outside vendors.
All drawings and models conform to the required standard and are built throughout as requested/needed. Also, documentation and work instructions are generated with CAD data to ensure manufacturing and assembly meets the specifications required.
A CAD / CAM service can leverage the power of 3D models and advanced computational capabilities to transform your concept into a realistic-looking image or animation. Additionally, they have many different materials and scenes available to showcase your design. Renderings are extremely useful for visualizing different aesthetic options, getting marketing feedback, or conveying an idea to investors without the time and expense typically associated with the generation of a production-like prototype.
