2D CAD Drawings are still used by the majority of Fabricators & Manufacturers, even though that most 2D CAD drawings where created from 3D CAD Models. The information that a fabriator/manufacturer basis his work on is still the 2D Drawing. A drawing you can print out on paper and has all the information that is required.
As with the Product Drawings, installers, builders etc. work from 2D CAD Drawings (Drawings they can print out and read). Depending on the type of drawing required these can either start in 3D (Floor Plans, Elevations etc, Pipe Runs) or in case of M&E Drawings show symbols (Switches, Sockets etc.) on a 2D Floor Plan.
These drawing are created in CAD Packages such as Autodesk AutoCad or Dassault System Draftsight.
We will convert existing paper drawings into CAD by either: Using the information on paper and create new 3D CAD models using Software such as Solidworks From the 3D CAD model create fully dimensioned 2D CAD Drawings Using the information on paper create new 2D CAD Drawings in PDF, DWG/DXF format
