2D into 3D CAD Conversion

Quattro Design input existing hand-drawn plans into their CAD system allowing convenient storage, enhancement and modification. We can provide a quotation to convert your complete library of parts if required.

You can either provide us with your original drawings or scan them and forward the images by e-mail. We will then manually convert the paper or image into an accurate, fully structured CAD or PDF file of the highest quality.


Why would a 2D to 3D CAD Conversion be required?

There can be several reasons for this demand such as:
• Updating existing stock drawings into a modern 3D format
• Create a 3D Printable format
• Create a 3D Model file to be imported into a modern CNC machine
• Visualisation/Animation

Companies often have libraries of drawings or individual parts which where created prior to CAD (or 3D CAD) and only have the paper drawings on file.


What Paper to CAD Conversion Service do we offer?

• Using the information on paper and create new 3D CAD models using Software such as Solidworks
