Taking an idea and turning it into a 3D model ready for printing can be intimidating if you don’t have CAD skills, and it will add a considerable delay to your project. Instead of trying to do it all yourself, you can turn to a 3D CAD service, meaning professionals will turn your sketches into a completed 3D file.
Sometimes a 3D printing service will offer CAD design for people who aren’t able to do it themselves. It’s an efficient option as it saves time going backwards and forwards between different service providers. To make sure you get the best results, you need to provid us with as much raw material as possible. If you can sketch your design from multiple views to the same scale, it makes our work a lot more efficient. Showing the same view from three different angles (top down, front and side) gives the 3D printing service designers plenty of information to work with. We will then load your image into a CAD program and use it as a reference for your work. Make sure you let us know how you will be using the model when it is complete. If it doesn’t have to handle much weight or pressure we may choose to make it hollow to reduce your costs, otherwise, we can choose a honeycombed effect or make it completely solid. The final choice is yours, of course, but we are experts and can give you guidance throughout the process to save you time and money. Once we have finished we will show you a render before we print it to make sure it looks right.
A good 3D CAD service can help you get your item produced faster and cheaper than if you tried to do it yourself. Luckily, this is exactly what Microworkshops provides. We are experts in 3D printing and other related services. Contact us today!
