Moving to 3D design–it’s not that hard
Have you ever gotten a call from your machine shop pointing out an error in a drawing; or even worse, received parts back from the shop only to discover an error that was overlooked? One of the major benefits of 3D CAD is that it lets you check for form, fit and function before spending a dime to manufacture parts.
Moving to 3D is easier than you think. SolidWorks software allows you to preserve the value of your 2D DWG data with the best available tools for converting data from 2D to 3D, accommodating reusable 2D geometry, and enabling a smooth transition–including extensive help documentation for AutoCAD users.
