How Resellers Can Sell CAD Conversion Service Packages and Make $

CAD CAM Services, Inc.  has begun packaging its 3D CAD Conversion Services to sell through Reprographics Shops, 3D Printer Resellers and 3D Printer Manufacturers.

While Repro Shops, Resellers and Manufacturers may have some 3D CAD conversion capabilities, or plan to develop their own 3D CAD conversion team, selling a 3D CAD Conversion package will enable them to augment their internal capabilities quickly or scale as needed.

3D CAD Conversion Helps Manufacturing Survive Competition

Global Markets…Global Unrest… Overseas Manufacturing…What should U.S. manufacturers do to survive in this competitive world? 

First, and foremost a manufacturer must deliver services and products in a short time and at a fair price.  This means shortening the design to manufacture cycle.   Shortening the cycle requires adequate workflow control and lean processes.  To accomplish this, a company must have a control over its information and its assets.

3D CAD – A Primer

3D CAD – A Primer

3D CAD comes in different “flavors” that are used differently and that require the CAD technicians to design their virtual components in a different manner for each.  Here is a list of the types of 3D CAD this article discusses:

    • 3D wireframe
    • 3D "dumb" solids
    • 3D parametric solid modeling

3D wireframe, while not often used today, is worth mentioning simply because the approach to 3D wireframe is similar to that used in 2D CAD systems.    Persons familiar with 2D CAD will understand these concepts:  (1) each line has to be manually inserted into the drawing; (2) the final product has no mass properties associated with it; (3) the final product cannot have features added directly to it.   The wireframe model  is used to make the final engineering drawing views.
