3D Surface & Solid Modelling
Solidworks 3D CAD models and assemblies can be generated from:- 2D hard copy drawings or sketches, original parts or models (which may require digitizing), 2D or 3D electronic data.Some example of past projects are shown below, all of which have been designed and modelled to suit the method of manufacture.
Tooling models
Customer supplied 3D models of components can be converted into mould cavities, with other tooling requirements added i.e split surfaces, sliding cores, side actions etc. Any necessary electrodes can then be extracted. These models can then be used to generate cutter paths. Models can be returned to the customer in a variety of 3D formats.

Product Design
A few examples of surface & solid CAD models of products generated from conceptual sketches, photographs or hand made prototypes. Models designed to include the required characteristics for the chosen method of manufacture e.g : Plastic injection mould tools, vacuum form tools, drop-forging dies. Models can be returned to the customer in a variety of 3D formats, as STL prototypes, in 2D format (to assist in tool design), and can be supplied with 2D fully dimensioned drawings.
