Hire Vetted Cad Designers and Freelance Engineers to Confidentially Convert Paper-To-CAD and PDF-To-CAD Drawings

Convert images to CAD with our on-demand CAD drafters

In this day and age, a CAD file is necessary for just about any architectural or engineering process. Drawings created with computer-assisted drafting software are no longer considered to be luxuries, they are necessities. So, if you’ve got image files for your project but no CAD files, then it’s time to get those files converted.

Whether you have paper drawings, photographs, or digital image files, you’ll need to have them converted to a CAD format if you want to take advantage of all that CAD software has to offer. The good news is that you don’t need to take the time to redraw your existing images yourself. At Cad Crowd, we have plenty of experienced CAD professionals who are ready to handle the conversion process for you.

Why convert images to CAD files

We would say that the future is digital, but the fact is that today we are living in a digital world. People associate digital files with quality, precision, and professionalism. If you don’t have a high-quality CAD file to represent your project, then you’re holding yourself back.

CAD designs offer a higher degree of precision. With computer-assisted drafting, you can communicate your vision with absolute accuracy and clarity. If you can’t afford ambiguity, then you need to go digital.

You’ll also find that CAD files are much easier to edit than traditional blueprints and diagrams. Back in the day, you might have to completely redo a drawing to make minor changes, but you can quickly modify CAD files with the click of a button. You might not plan on making any changes at the moment, but you never know what the future might hold.

By using CAD software, you can also take your design from two dimensions to three. While traditional drawings can only exist on a 2D sheet of paper, a CAD file can be built up into a 3D object within the computer. The conversion process won’t automatically transform your 2D drawing into a 3D model, but it will provide you with the foundation you need to make that leap further down the road.

By transferring your images to CAD, you can simultaneously minimize risks and maximize opportunities. The longer you go without converting your images, the more chances you're taking. CAD conversion is the road to confidence, control, and creativity.

Why hire a freelance CAD professional

If you’ve spent any time looking into options for converting your image to a CAD file, you probably know that there are programs and services that offer “automated conversion.” These services use computer programs to turn images into CAD files automatically. These options can be tempting because of how cheap they seem, but they can actually end up costing quite a bit more in the long run. If you’re concerned with quality and return on investment, then you need the services of a CAD professional.

When it comes to fields like engineering, architecture, and manufacturing, you need complete accuracy. “Close enough” just doesn’t cut it. Some conversion programs advertise 99% accuracy, but you can never be sure what sort of impact that 1% difference might have. In some cases, even minor variations can lead to issues with compatibility, structural integrity, and basic functioning.

Humans can make sense of imperfections that computer programs can’t. Even the most sophisticated image processing software can’t read an image the way that humans can. When it comes to things like smudges, smears, and scribbles, humans have an innate advantage at identifying them. A human drafter can look at an old and weathered drawing and extract meaning from the noise in a way that computers just can’t. The older your image is and the more imperfections it has, the more crucial human eyes become.

If you want the best final product possible, you need to begin with the best CAD file possible. To achieve this, you need to call on the help of a trained professional. This isn’t an area to cut corners. The cost of hiring a professional is cheap compared to the cost of fixing mistakes caused by an unthinking computer.
