CAD and Computer Modelling

CAD 3D modelling is at the heart of how we maximize the benefits of 3D fabrication technologies and as a tool to help test, simulate and validate new product ideas.

If you are new to 3D CAD modelling we can work with you to help develop and translate ideas to a digital format that you can use further on within your business.

Design, model, test and communicate ideas and new possibilities

We use a variety of industry standard CAD and 3D modelling software including AutoCAD, Rhino 3D, SketchUp and other packages suitable for the manipulation of 3D scan data, mesh constructed models and photorealistic rendering. 

We also have access to virtual reality, animation tools and building information modelling (BIM) expertise.
