2D to 3D CAD Conversion – The Importance of Accuracy

When doing 2D to 3D CAD Conversion, the place to start is with an accurate scan of your 2D blueprint or CAD drawing.    We recommend using a Contex scanner, and we’re particularly excited about the Contex Ultra series.  See some of our previous blog posts for more information about the Contex Ultra Series.

Once you have the scanned raster drawing, you can start the 2D to 3D conversion process. The process of converting a 2D drawing into a 3D model is quite complicated and the method of conversion can be time consuming.   While some popular 3D modeling tools like AutoCAD, SolidEdge and Microstation can help simplify the process,  it still takes a CAD expert to easily generate both the 2D drafting view and the 3D CAD model that are usually needed for every day project activity – whether the user is a steel fabricator, machine operator or an architect.   The 2D drafting view enables the person who does the actual work to build the model or component, while the 3D model enables the designer, key investors and others to visualize the finished product.
