Why Outsource 3D CAD Drafting Services?

Modern engineering companies have to work hard to retain market share and make a decent profit. For many, this means finding a quicker, less expensive way to tackle 3D CAD drafting. That’s why a lot of companies turn to outsourcing this difficult work.

In this guide, you’ll learn all about outsourcing 3D CAD drafting. We’ll cover what these services do, why you should consider them, and how to get started today.

What Are Outsourced 3D CAD Drafting Services?

Outsourced 3D CAD drafting services are when you pay an outside company to handle your 3D models and create manufacturing drawings. This company can either make the drawings from scratch, use your existing 2D drawings, or even use any existing 3D models that you currently have.

When you choose a company like CAD/CAM Services, you’ll be able to choose from a few different payment structures. Some of our clients prefer an hourly rate, and others like a per-project or per-drawing quote. Either way, you would only pay the outsourced 3D CAD company for the work performed on your project — you’re not bringing on full-time salaried engineers.

Why Should an Engineer Outsource 3D CAD Drafting Services?

If you’re on the fence, this section should help you. This is why so many engineering departments choose CAD/CAM Services when it comes to outsourcing 3D CAD drafting.

It Frees Up Your Workers

First and foremost, outsourcing the CAD work will free up your engineers. Regardless of how many in-house engineers you have, we’d bet that you have a lot of projects that need engineering attention.

By outsourcing your 3D CAD drafting, your team can tackle other projects. Many companies bring us in for CAD drafting so their team can focus on new IP and go through R&D to make new products, generating more money for the company.

It’s One Less Thing to Worry About

Most engineering companies we work with have a common issue: there are so many things to work on, but not enough time. Every day, you probably have to deal with a dozen small problems that pop up that further distract you from projects you want to get started.

We get it. That’s why outsourcing is so great for most engineering companies. When you oustource your 3D CAD drafting work, you have one less thing to worry about. This might give you the added bandwidth you need to start making serious progress on your other projects.

Outsourcing Allows You to Tackle Larger Projects

We’ve worked with companies that had tiny engineering departments, but they’re able to tackle full 3D warehouse models. How? Through outsourcing.

When you outsource your engineering work through a large company, you can effectively expand your engineering department. Suddenly, you can tackle much larger projects and deal with more intricate designs.

Bigger projects usually come with bigger paydays or big boosts to productivity. If you’re not sure your in-house team can handle it, simply outsource it.

Avoid the Headaches of New Hires

We all know how annoying it is to go through the process of hiring a new engineer. Posting a job description, reviewing hundreds of applications, interviewing, salary negotiations, then weeks or months of training.

What are you supposed to do if you need someone to start working tomorrow? There’s no easy way to bring in a new hire and get them up to speed that quickly.

Instead, you can outsource your 3D CAD drafting work. You don’t need to hire anyone or go through any more interviews, just pick a high-quality option like our team at CAD/CAM Services.

We offer turnarounds in as little as 24 hours, so you can truly get the project finished by tomorrow.

Get Faster Deliveries

Speaking of 24-hour delivery, our team at CAD/CAM Services always strives to deliver projects quicker than an in-house engineering team can. When you outsource your work through us, you’ll enjoy much faster deliveries.

We can make this promise since we have a team of over 100 engineers and draftsmen that work around the clock — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your engineers might get pulled in a different direction during their 3D CAD work, but we’ll stay focused and dedicated to your project.

Save Money on Each Drawing

Not only is outsourcing much faster, but it’s also more affordable (most of the time). One reason is because you don’t have to pay us sick time, pay for any days off, or deal with medical benefits. You’re strictly paying for the engineering work that you receive.

Plus, since our team is so large we don’t have to pad our prices to make a profit. This results in lower hourly rates, and per-project prices that you can appreciate.

Whether you need 1 drawing or 100 models, you’ll save money with CAD/CAM Services.

Leverage a Large Team of Experts

Finally, think about the available pool of resources that an outsourced company has at their disposal. As we mentioned, our team is made up of over 100 full-time engineers with plenty of experience. We have workers with decades of experience who are ready to start on your project.

Hiring the same level of expertise in a full-time engineer is incredibly expensive and difficult. Outsourcing simplifies the process and expands your pool of expertise overnight.


Our experts just explained how outsourcing your 3D CAD drafting projects can save you time, avoid headaches, and simplify the full process. To get started, consider CAD/CAM Services.
