Why Choose Industrial 3D Modeling over 2D Drafting

Industrial 3D Modeling has definite advantages over 2D Drafting. Let us take a look as to why one should use 2D Drafting when industrial 3D Modeling with advanced software is readily available.

CAD vs. Modeling: Which 3D Software to Choose? - Shapeways Magazine

One of the most common questions we get from those who are new to digital manufacturing is “If I want to design something, which software should I learn?”

Benefits of CAD 3D Modeling in Industrial Product Design & Engineering - MDI Homepage

Since the early 1980’s, computer-aided design software (CAD) has taken over the engineering industry as the standard tool used for drafting and design of mechanical components and assemblies. Immediately, projects were able to go from concept to prototype in record time. A major advantage was the added product design flexibility, which allowed engineers to avoid costly mistakes when changes to the design of one component were not passed along to other affected parts of the assembly. Computer design also brought about the ability to visualize complex technical elements that are difficult to conceive in a two dimensional layout.

Industrial 3d Modeling vs 2d Drafting

Industrial 3D Modeling has many advantages over 2D Drafting like 3D gives more details as compared to 2D. Hence, it should be given more preference.

What is the difference between 2D and 3D CAD drawings? - Quora

“2D Auto-cad drawings which is used by the industry of fabricators & manufacturers. Even most of the 2D drawing which is made by 3D CAD model. The information of work about manufacturer or fabrication is based on the 2D drawing. In this context, a drawing has all the information in it when we print out on a paper.
