CAD digitizing in 2D and 3D with exact dimensions, correct texts and professional use of layers
Drawings that are today on paper are needed as CAD files. The CAD drawing shall be drawn to scale, symbols and text must be correct and placed on the appropriate layer! Dimensions, line types and line widths must be all right. And they must be available fast and inexpensive.
The old drawings are often yellowed, folded… and sometimes oversized. They stem from all engineering areas: Mechanical engineering, plant construction, energy generation and distribution, Waterways and ship building, architecture and civil engineering, cadastre, plumbing and air-condition, traffic engineering, …
CAD digitizing by JDS, using the most advanced digital methods, combined with on screen post processing by CAD experts and quality assurance by engineers, who understand the content of your drawings.
The unique point in our CAD digitizing solution is that you get high quality CAD files, at a low cost price due to a high rate of automatic vectorisation while being of very high quality due to postprocessing and checking by experienced engineers. In the shortest time and in any volume.
CAD files of high quality, with exact dimensions, orthoqraphically correct text and professional use of layers.
In the CAD format that you require, for AutoCAD, MicroStation, Nemetschek, Unigraphics, Catia etc. Particularly we have extensive engineering & CAD experience with: architectural drawings, including on-site survey, P&I diagrams for chemical and petrochemical process engineering, georeferencing and digitizing of power grids or pipelines and insertion into the digital land base map, cadastral maps for road construction and green areas, landuse and zoning plans, escape route plans, waterway and marine engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial and power plant construction.
Why JDS Sommer CAD digitizing?
JDS SOMMER combines scanning, computerized digitizing (CAD digitizing) and profound engineering know-how, in order to deliver the most cost-effective, fastest and highest quality conversion from paper to CAD. For the Editing & Quality Assurance process we provide engineering know-how in multiple disciplines to meet highest CAD requirements of our more than one thousand customers. JDS CAD digitizing does convert even complex construction, engineering and land register drawings into CAD models of professional quality.
The results are 99% equivalent to designs drawn anew on screen by a qualified CAD expert.
We deliver an exact representation of the geometry as well as the dimensions and expert layering, conforming to customer specifications.
When using our JDS CAD digitizing services the customer can advise detailed specifications on:
- Layer Colour
- Scale of Drawing or Map
- Text Size
- Line Width and Types
We can produce files in the following native formats:
- AutoCad dwg
- Microstation DGN
- Nemetschek Allplan FT
- other systems in DXF
From 2D to 3D in mechanical design and plant engineering:
Our CAD digitizing services for modelling and visualizing your products and plants in 3D are professional, fast and low cost:
- We create 3D models based on existing paper plans, 2D CAD files, photos and laser scans
- From the 3D models, we derive the detailed drawings for manufacturing, component catalogs, etc.
- While designing the 3D models, we take into account dimensions and specifications that you provide, as well as sketches and handwritten entries. We also implement modifications and additions to the 3D models, as defined by you.
We are working primarily with the following platforms and data formats:
- Autodesk Inventor
- Delivery of 3D models in the native formats and in IGES or STEP
- conversion into other 3D formats is available
3D Visualization and Animation
Starting from paper drawings, CAD files and photos, we create photorealistic views with the desired perspective views and also camera rides.
The output formats are JPEG and TIF for images and AVI and MPEG for camera tracks.
JPEG and TIFF files can be viewed with all popular image viewer programs. Also print output is possible.
AVI and MPEG files can be displayed with programs like Windows Media Player, Quicktime or Real Player.
