Why Companies Convert 2D CAD Designs to 3D
The early versions of CAD were all 2D CAD, but in today’s design world, 3D models are the preferred option for easy visualization.

So, what do you do with all of your legacy 2D CAD drawings now that you’re doing so much in a 3D design system, such as Revit, Solid Works, Catia, or another 3D program? And how do you incorporate 2D design, since 2D drafting is still widely in use?
