How to Convert Mylar Aerospace Drawings
Aerospace design drawings were traditionally created and stored on mylar sheets. But, with today’s newer 3D CAD technologies, Mylar film has mostly been replaced by 3D CAD models and dynamic virtual viewing. This can lead to a dilemma for organizations that have large stores of old aerospace design drawings on Mylar.
As these drawings have aged, most will have deteriorated. In order to preserve the design information in 3D CAD, the drawings will need to be scanned and converted. However, the Mylar deterioration makes the scan and conversion process much more difficult.
