As with most industries, the metal fabrication industry is changing along with the help of technology. Contract manufacturing companies now have more advanced technology to help with the metal fabrication process. We recently wrote an article about how AI is set to impact the custom metal fabrication industry. However, AI isn’t the only technological wave affecting the industry. CAD models are not only used in the industry today, but they are absolutely crucial for metal fabrication projects.
What Are CAD Models?
CAD models are two-dimensional (2D) or three-dimensional (3D) models created using computer software and used in the initial visualization stage of a metal fabrication project.
Why Are CAD Models Essential?
CAD models are essential tools for metal fabrication projects. They allow contract manufacturing companies to create detailed and precisely crafted metal parts. parts. Before CAD models existed, we had to use trial-and-error to cut metal parts to the right dimensions. Thanks to CAD models, we can use advanced technology to create models of metal parts prior to them being fabricated. This saves both us and our clients valuable time and money when completing metal fabrication projects.
Some additional benefits of using CAD models include:
- Quality check
- Less metal waste
- More accurate metal part reproduction
