Whether to supplement existing drafting capability or provide a new service, using in-house draftsmen, we are able to take a proposed design solution and quickly turn around detail sketches for bid submission or fabrication purposes. We are strong advocates of the process of electronic data exchange especially CAD output. This enables us to effect revisions to details and reissue promptly with no loss of quality. We can also import/export to various propriety and general formats such as AutoCAD dwg, dxf, iges etc. In addition to general 2D drafting, we have numerous 3D modeling capabilities.
