Posted by Blog Tipster on Thu, Mar 05, 2015 @ 03:57 PM

Converting engineering drawings into CAD models is simpler than ever with improvements to technology over the last decade. CAD programs, such as SolidWorks Industrial Design, allow users to first sketch their ideas out on a blank white screen before modeling. Combining both a drawing application and a 3D modeling software accelerates the engineering process so that modellers can more quickly have their ideas turned into something tangible. A 3D model of a product can now be easily printed by giving the engineering company a real world example to show investors. A small-scale representation of a product could be the reason that it is bought so the ability to quickly make them is of the utmost importance.
