Solid Modelling and Drafting


Tankbouw Rootselaar uses 3D design modelling. It greatly improves design quality because it is a more complete process than 2D design. As a result, many human errors that can occur with traditional 2D design methods are avoided. In the past problems such as component collisions, incorrect quantities or parts that do not fit, could happen because a designer working in only 2D was forced to memorise much of the information. It is this point that gives rise to errors because the brain cannot visualize too a exact scale. Reducing human error by using the 3D modelling design methods shown in our 3D Autocad course minimizes the need for re-work because the design quality is greatly improved.

Using 3D design modelling to get quantity data is easy because items are represented as they occur. Consequently, as long as a CAD 3D design is created as a true to life model, the 3D modelling design represents quantities with exact accuracy.

Using 3D design modelling is also useful for customer presentations, brochures, manufacturing, and technical publications. Clearer communication of design intent at the earliest stage is always useful.

We can also provide 3D models as step files so that implementation in other 3D software programs is possible.
