Is It Possible to Convert a 2D CAD Drawing to a 3D BIM File?

Yes it is! 

Let’s talk first about just what it means to go from 2D CAD to 3D BIM.  A 2D CAD file is generated using lines in layers and if you draw  plans, elevations, and sections in a traditional CAD application (like AutoCAD, for instance)  and need to make any design changes, you have change each sheet manually.

Convert 2D to 3D

It is human nature and desire to want to see an object and understand visually oriented objects that they deal with. 3D models eliminate communication uncertainties and can save businesses time and money that is otherwise wasted while reworking designs.
2D drawings are quickly fading away as a memory of the past in the modern design world. The upside of the 3D model provides many more opportunities and advantages and is the staple moving forward in industry today. While some companies will still have some remnants of days past with some 2D CAD designs still in their systems, the technology, and the pace that it moves going forward, will make 3D Cad design the standard. This is why it makes sense to update your system using the Cad conversion service to ensure you do not get left behind in the technological times.
Another advantage to upgrading is that if you have a 3D model of your product, that very same 3D model can be used in the manufacturing process during production. When it comes to deciding on whether to upgrade or not, you should also know that the visual concept that solid modeling provides during the concept of new products will be extremely useful in rapid prototyping of your product.
