How to Convert Engineering Drawings to 3D CAD/BIM
What do you do when you need 3D CAD/BIM models and all you have are paper engineering drawings? We know one company who had just such a dilemma. With over 150,000 engineering drawings of various types of parts used in plumbing, building, engineering, manufacturing, they wanted to create an online catalog resource for the industry. However, the online catalog needed to feature pictures of the parts, not engineering drawings. It was determined that the most efficient way to get pictures was by converting the drawings into 3D CAD/BIM models that could be displayed online.
