Detailed Drawing and Designs

D&M has over ten years of experience producing high-quality, professional CAD design services. Our specialist design engineers will work closely with you to understand precisely what you need—using the latest computer-aided design (CAD) software to create detailed drawings based on your specific requirements. Our CAD services are available either stand-alone service or as part of a package of services. We are confident in our work and work with structural engineers to ensure that everything is checked and completed to a high level of accuracy.

We model everything in 3D to ensure the product is exactly as required; it’s essential that you can fully visualise the finished product. You will always benefit from the latest technologies and expertise, allowing you to continue your day-to-day operations knowing that your project is in safe hands.

Our approval process is tailored to you. Whether you want a face-to-face meeting, a Teams call, or a detailed drawing emailed, we are on hand to ensure you are confident with our service.

Computer Aided Design

What is CAD?

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) employs computers to assist in creating, analysing or optimising a specific design. CAD is used to streamline the design process for engineers and can be used to make detailed 2D drawings and 3D models of real-world products before they are ever manufactured. They allow designers to visualise height, width, distance and material before the product is manufactured.

In addition, CAD software is used to increase the designer’s productivity, improve the quality of the design, improve consistency, and creates a database for manufacturing.

Advantages

Why use CAD?

Computer-Aided Design has many advantages that make it the perfect choice for your manufacturing needs.

CAD model visualisation

Visualisation

CAD Software allows you to visualise the objects in both 2D and 3D before they are made. It allows you to make changes quickly and spot any potential flaws.

Drawing details

Detail & Accuracy

The level of detail in CAD can create an accurate representation of your work. You can add as much detail as possible to visualise the object before making it. This allows for more accurate end results.

Cost-effective

Our nesting software allows us to utilise the sheet material in the best possible way, allowing us to help you keep costs down and reduce material wastage.

Computer-Aided Manufacturing

CAM prepares our CAD files for machining, converting them into files that our CNC machines can read—translating all the instructions into G-Code, the computer machining language. This enables our machines to create highly accurate parts.

What is CAM?

Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is the use of software to build components. CAM tells manufacturing equipment such as laser cutters how to accurately and efficiently manufacture parts and complete jobs.

What is the difference between CAD & CAM?

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is the process of creating detailed drawings with accurate measurements and dimensions. Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is the process of telling manufacturing machines how to make specific parts. The two are often used in conjunction: CAD designs and CAM builds it.
