Benefits Of Using 3d Cad Design & 3d Modeling Compared To 2d Method

Benefits Of Using 3d Cad Design & 3d Modeling Compared To 2d Method There are several key benefits of using 3D CAD design and CAD 3D modeling in Civil, Mechanical and Architectural industry. Key benefits include simplicity, automation and interactive analysis. Integrating CAD systems with Enterprise Resource Planning systems create highly efficient design process across organization.

Using 3D CAD modeling engineer can greatly improve design quality because it is far more comprehensive process than 2D design. Hence, many human errors that can occur with conventional 2D design methods are avoided. The designer who uses 2D method has to hold much of the information mentally. With 3D environment he/she can visualize whole structure or product with real-life simulation and can avoid errors such as member collisions and incorrect quantities. Reducing human errors minimizes the need for re-work, improves overall design quality and saves costs.

With 2D views, projections might show a specific member in several different views while other members might be completely omitted to maintain drawing precision. This results in poor quantity estimation. With 3D design modeling material estimation process becomes simple because items are represented as they occur in the design. As long as a CAD 3D design is created as a true to life model, designer gets quantities with exact accuracy.

Communication of design intent among different departments is greatly improved by using 3D CAD modeling. With 2D method, non technical people have to wait for a prototype design before they can clearly understand the project. Since CAD 3D modeling generates pictorial views along with conventional projections, the design intent can clearly be understood by anyone. This helps in effectively communicate 3D modeling design and improve inter-departmental understanding earlier in the project cycle, thus saving time and minimize human errors. Customer presentations, manufacturing and technical publications all benefit from this.

A very substantial and up-to-date approach can be realized by using 3D AutoCAD modeling - particularly in the eyes of client. 3D models are increasingly being used by Manufactures, fabricators and contractors for getting accurate drawings and renderings of product/architecture/structure design.

Outsourcing 3D CAD modeling services offer many advantages such as less infrastructure, competitive edge, less cost, leverage expert help, reliability and security. That is why 3D CAD design outsourcing is the most common among AEC industry today.
