Solidworks is our primary engineering tool because it allows us to create 3D parts and 2D drawings. Solidworks is a parametric feature-based solid modelling software package. 3D parts can be created and placed into assembly, and then 2D drawings can be generated directly from the part and assembly information.
Our skilled design team can produce workshop drawings for fabrication from 3D model information developed during the preliminary stages of the design process. Due to its parametric and associative nature, Solidworks allows automation of the drawing process based on information captured in 3D models.
The three basic Solidworks file types (parts, assemblies & drawings) are associated with one another. This means the drawing file has the ability to extract properties from parts or assemblies and reproduce the information on a drawing sheet. If a part is modified or properties changed, the associated 2D drawing will automatically update.
