CAD Outsource Service

Best 3D Modeling Services in the Australia

Temporary outsource services for 3D CAD modeling are often required by manufacturing companies, during busy times. In this type of service, the manufacturers look for companies with CAD and 3D Modeling know-how along with someone who understand the way they do business, meaning a focus on Modeling, Assembly, Drafting, Die Design, Tool Design, Sheet Metal Design and analysis of products is priority.

Additionally, manufacturers require the CAD operators with whom they work to be able to integrate mechanical engineering into the CAD and 3D Modeling technology. Most often this requires additional knowledge of CAM. CAM refers to Computer Aided Manufacturing, and in this context is most often referred to in conjunction with CAD, i.e.; CAD/CAM. CAD / CAM is a term that refers to computer systems that are used to both design and manufacture products. CAM software is most often used for product development, machine-tooling, and manufacturing, and is another area that continues to demand expert 3D Modeling Services.

Often the organizations that utilize CAD/CAM technologies also require extremely high accuracy. Industries such as aerospace, shipbuilding and automobile manufacturers have stringent accuracy requirements. These types of designers/manufacturers employ manufacturing processes that use three-dimensional models to determine the viability and tolerances of their designs, and exceptionally high accuracy is required.

Residency Requirements

For certain Australian manufacturers, such as aerospace, finding an outsource company that meets certain bidding requirements, often including security-clearance or 3D modeling outsource services within the Australia requires additional vetting. Just being CAD experts is not enough!

One way to insure that the service you choose for 3D Modeling meets all of these criteria is to deal only with a CAD services company that has been awarded with the Quality certificate and who is authorized and certified by the Australian  Department of Defense for CAD Conversion work.   This certification ensures accuracy, company integrity and knowledge.

Software Requirements

While you may need proficiency in only one 3D CAD software program, when you choose a 3D Modeling company that is experienced in a variety of 3D programs such as Revit; SolidWorks; Catia; and any other specialty that your firm requires, you’re more likely dealing with a company that has a large knowledge base, many technicians, and the ability to address nearly any 3D modeling problem.

This type of high-quality CAD outsourcing and 3D Modeling services can help you reduce expenses, improve workflow, have a better-managed business infrastructure, be more competitive, profitable and successful.

Can Outsourcing 3D Modeling Services Help your Company?

If you’re struggling to keep up with deadlines, need higher productivity, and want to improve your bottom line, then your company may be a candidate for 3D CAD Model outsourcing. Using a Australia based company will help to ensure a positive outcome.  Staying in the Australia will help to reduce your worries about what will happen when you outsource CAD projects.

The internet makes finding CAD outsource companies easy. It may take you a bit more time to winnow out the off-shore companies, but it’s worth the effort. When you’re evaluating how to improve your company, consider how much time you’ll get back by outsourcing. Then, consider how much easier it will be if there’s no language barrier, no time difference and no worries about the way you do business. Make sure you ask if the company is based in the Australia!

TIPS for interviewing for a CAD drafter position

Everyone that uses CAD needs a job but how do you know if a potential employer is right for you? It’s very difficult to hire the right person and it is equally challenging to find the right employer. As a worker, you are putting your faith and trust in your employer to create work for you, to keep the business running, to create an environment you can work in, and for the sake of your job. If your employer fails you are out of a job. It can be difficult to trust somebody else with your future. Make sure this job is right for you. Here are a few things you can do to help you vet out potential employers during the interview process.

There are several typical job interview questions you should probably ask when seeking any job.

What skills and experiences would make an ideal candidate? This question will tell you exactly what they are looking for. It also gives you the opportunity to sell yourself efficiently in that you won’t give them information they don’t need. Too much information may lead them to believe you are overqualified or don’t have the right set of skills. They may also mention something you didn’t realize they needed but can do.
Do you have any concerns about my qualifications? This is a tuff question to ask. It may expose your shortcomings out loud and that can be difficult to handle. However, it will tell you the issues you need to address in order to get the job. It creates an opportunity for you to demonstrate why you are the person for the job and removes fears they may have of hiring you. Don’t get offended by anything they list. They may be correct in their comments.
Who will I be working with? What group? What department? What role will I be filling? This question will help to eliminate some assumptions you have made about the position that may be incorrect. It will also give you an idea of the corporate structure of the company. Even small companies have corporate structures. Will you answer to one person specifically? Will you work in a group or independently?
Is this a new position or am I replacing somebody? This is important to know. You may be replacing a person that was fired for poor performance. Maybe somebody retired, or moved on to a different company. Perhaps the person before you was promoted. Maybe the company has new projects and needs additional workers. This will help you to fit in better when you start. It also lets you know what the current work is. Hopefully they can continue with the current workload and keep you employed. If a new position, or additional position, is be created for you make sure to ask about the current and future expected workload. Does the company have a reputation of hiring for a project then releasing you when work runs out? If you are replacing a person that was promoted then that means there is a good chance of advancement for you at this company. You can learn a lot from this one question.
What have past employees done to succeed in this position? If you are interviewing for a position that the company is creating, meaning it has never had a person perform these duties before, you may want to rephrase the question. This will give you an idea of what the company expects of you and what has worked for them. It can also create a dialog of how the company solves their issues and allow you to provide feedback on how might approach things.
What are the benefits? This may seem obvious but don’t forget to ask. Get specific with the details. How much will insurance cost? When will it be available? How is vacation time determined? Is any of this negotiable? Yes negotiate with them. You don’t have to accept their offer at face value. Wheel and deal! They might not budge but they definitely won’t if you don’t ask.
Will there be training? You don’t want your skill set to stagnate. You want to get better so that you will be worth more. A good employer also knows that they want employees that know what they are doing. Who wants to hire unskilled people? If they don’t offer training see if you can get them to add that as a benefit.
Why should I work here and not somewhere else? This is a chance for them to sell themselves. If they can’t why would you want to work there?
What will my salary be? This is where the dancing begins. Both sides are afraid to commit to a number for fear of giving away too much or not getting enough. The employer wants to pay as little as possible and you want to get paid as much as possible. This is obvious. Before you walk in to the interview determine what you want to make. There is no max so determine what you want and determine your minimum. Don’t start with the minimum because it is very rare that the employer will give you more than what you ask for. It does happen from time to time but if they feel they can get you for less they will try. Don’t ask for what you were making at your last job; go higher, at least a little bit. Make sure you feel that the pay fits the role and responsibilities. Never work for free.
What is the next step in the process? Save this for last. This is the essential last question and one you should definitely ask. It shows that you’re interested in moving along in the process and invites the interviewer to tell you how many people are in the running for the position.

There are more questions to ask when looking for a CAD related job. Some of those questions might be:

What CAD software will I be using? This may be an obvious question but it is vital to know what tool you will be using. If you can’t use that tool you may have a very difficult time in this new job. Also ask what programs are used in the office. If you can use multiple CAD programs that the company uses then you are a very valuable candidate for a position.
What version (of the CAD software) are you on? What are your update plans? Versioning in CAD is very important. Stay current and be familiar with the latest versions of your CAD software. If the company doesn’t update often then you may fall behind in your skill sets. Ask why they haven’t updated recently. If they are up to date, ask when they updated and how often.
Is there company training for CAD? Does the company train its CAD users? If not ask why? Have they ever trained? Why did they stop? If they don’t train and won’t train you need to wonder why a company will hire and retain untrained workers. Why don’t they want efficiency to improve? Why don’t they value quality skills?
What type of hardware will you be using? Will you be doing CAD work on a toaster? How often are workstations updated?

There are many more questions that you can and probably should ask when interviewing for a CAD position. Think it through and prepare. Create a list before you go into your interview. Ask questions. It’s the only way for you to learn about this company before you decide to commit the bulk of your daily waking hours to them.

Solidworks Cad Data Management

It is no secret that managing Gigabytes of CAD data can be tough. Especially if you’re a new comer to a company that contains years of legacy data, you’ll probably be spending at least 2 hours a day on non-essential task, which is sorting out your files.

What’s more, every department in a company (or dare I say every employee in a company), has their own way of sorting their files. Yes, a company may enforce a rule that any files checked into the server of the company follows a certain nomenclature, but who is going to enforce it?

Poor Data Management leads to many issues such as:

  • Poor Decisions based on faulty or poor information
  • Duplicated efforts because one users did not know that the work he is doing was already done by someone else and it was in the company’s data storage
  • Lost of sales because customer’s cant get the information in time and leaves in frustration
  • Lost of productivity as employees disturbs other employees for data that is already there but can’t find them

This is where a data management needs to be more than just a security center. It needs to be an intelligent vault. Introducing an intelligent PDM system, called  SOLIDWORKS Product Data Management (PDM) .

Nothing screams horror than sifting through an assembly with 1000s of parts just so that you pull it out replace with another. Another concern would also be to pinpoint where a particular standard part is used (Important if you need to replace a part thought to be standard with a revised version).

The default Microsoft search function may not be able to help you find you the parts you want as search function are based on how the OS indexes the files. With  SOLIDWORKS PDM , all your CAD files are promptly indexed to make the search function more powerful and accurate. With the ability to give you where the files has been used and the history of the file, you can quickly and efficiently get the information you need!

If you are in an organisation whereby a few engineers work on a same project, you would most likely fall in the trap of working on a file in which someone else is working on at the same time. At the end of the day when it comes to putting it all together, nothing fits! Back to the drawing board….

PDM controls the flow of all the documents, making sure each users knows the status of the file. If one person is working on a file, others may still view it, but not work on it until the initial user is done. Think of PDM as your friendly traffic police, making sure the flow of documents keeps moving without a hiccup.

Sometimes when a particular step goes idle, due to:

  1. Awaiting confirmation on the green light
  2. Awaiting confirmation that a correction is needed
  3. Awaiting for other departments to make a move

The user may also forget about his/her own movement in the project, and they are not aware of the status of the steps mentioned above.

With PDM , the process workflow defined in the PDM system keeps you updated about what steps are currently in progress and who is in charge. Built in is also the Notification Capability, which reminds the person-in-charge to keep the process going, so that no time is wasted!

The biggest concern about any data management solution is whether:

  1. Is it easy to manage?
  2. Do I need to hire an IT person to constantly look over it?

Be assured that the PDM solution will keep your data safe, organised and compliant.

One of the biggest roadblocks to adopting a data management systems is the fear that users may not get used to the system, which locks them out from the pool of data. Well that is not the case with PDM . With its tight integration with Windows, accessing files is as easy as using Windows explorer, opening folders to access the files. With its structured way of checking in/out of files, you will be assured that any files being opened or entered the vault is following company protocol.

It’s a step-by-step method which keeps all your files organised and populated with essential date.

File history is always difficult to track unless the right discipline is instilled in the user. By default, most users when it comes to editing an old file will just save the new version over it, completely destroying the older version of the file. What happens is that:

  • Nobody knows what changes were made
  • Nobody knows who made the changes
  • And if the new version is not acceptable and need to revert back, its not possible! (Time wasted in recreating the old version)

So why not let PDM do that with you? It keeps track of the entire history of your files, AUTOMATICALLY! Let engineers do the designing, and PDM on the file management.

SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM includes:

> File management: centralised file vaulting capabilities to manage and control electronic intellectual property and product design data

> Revision management: track changes, maintain a complete revision history of a design’s evolution, and avoid the errors of manual approaches

> Bill of materials (BOM) management: a range of tools for making BOM information management more efficient, enabling you to export BOM data in multiple ways to use in downstream applications and systems

> Distributed collaboration: keep people connected, up to date, and working on the same set of data, regardless of their location

> Regulatory compliance: helps you comply with government regulatory requirements or industry standards for controlled development processes and product documentation

> Design reuse: create a framework for quickly locating and reusing or repurposing existing design data

> Engineering change management: significantly reduce the time needed to complete your design approval and engineering change order (ECO) processes with the automated electronic workflow system

> Secure file vaulting: securely control access to sensitive or proprietary product information

> Enterprise scalability: easily connect the design data needs of your entire enterprise, whether for just a few users in a single location or hundreds of contributors working in multiple locations around the world

future of 3d design

Future of 3D Design Microsoft's HoloLens

In recent times, TV shows have been so inspiring that they made me think about how the  future  is shaped by adding new technology. Once we realise that, it won't be science fiction anymore, but it will be reality. The entire generation expects certain things from future technology.

Additionally, the movies feature pieces of imaginary technology that later become a reality. It comes with a compact communications device, face-to-face voice chat, and other voice recognition. It uses a few concepts that mostly appear on the show in the real world. Talking about Holograms, it's another instance of a technology that appeared in the movie and uses one piece of tech. The companies are continuously trying hard to develop a better design.

Microsoft Hololens

Oculus Rift and other augmented reality combined with Google Glass are the closest to bringing holograms into the world.Moving on, Microsoft's Kinect developed a new platform that brings a simulated reality into both the workplace and living rooms. This new system is called HoloLens, which takes the shape of a pair of goggles rather than a holo suite. Unlike Oculus Rift, HoloLens does not attempt to trick your brain into thinking it's someplace else. At the same time, it uses augmented reality (AR) to overlay holograms into your everyday space.

To use it every day, we add holograms everyone uses, from mechanics to brain surgeons. Some teachers find numerous ways to leverage holographic technology at every level of education. No doubt, there is an entertainment industry that might discover ways to use the technology for video games. We know it's cool, but 3D printing is a king. What do you think about why we care about the HoloLens? HoloLens comes with new opportunities for 3D  design . It sketches 3D images on a 2D surface with the HoloLens, designers, and  engineers  that design and develop using 3D parts in 3D.

Microsoft realises how much potential it needs to  design  the new platform. It includes instances for 3D design, including demos and other video marketing. One shouldn't be surprised if the HoloLens shipped with 3D  design software comes with haptic feedback tools. Users can add a pair of haptic gloves that suddenly comes with the ability to mould new parts, including a 3D mouse or stylus.

The Possibilities of HoloLens for Engineering Design

Design

The design of HoloLens is inspiring. Also, the design engineers will go beyond traditional 3D monitors that are controlled via mouse or touch. It gives immersive 3D in the real world that uses gestures and voice. Holograms allow to visualise how something would look in the physical world. It can benefit of 3D editing and authoring capabilities, mimicking how you would interact with something in real life.

We create a physical mock-up or prototype just by using foam, clay and various other mediums for modelling. This is what we design with HoloLens. It comes with more tools and fewer constraints, adding it to the real world. One can share it with all holograms by collaborating it remotely. Users can even turn them into physical objects and HoloStudio's 3D print compatibility.

Fix

To think about all the possibilities, one needs to find the field service and repair the products and machines. Withstanding next to an aircraft or vehicle, users can have digital instructions pinned as holograms. The 3D animation within the actual physical context available right in front of you brings remote colleagues or advisors along with HoloNotes on Skype. It allows them to see the environment from their tablet to troubleshoot and collaborate on a repair on the spot. The user has to draw instructions that appear as animations and helps through walk a new process.

Simulate

It comes with new ways to learn the powerful capability of HoloLens. In both field and design service training scenarios, users can learn, visualise and examine in 3D. Additionally, one can understand how a product works in the actual environment. It's a different inspection performed on a product or individual tests that meet the product with safety standards. Moreover, it simulates an unsafe environment that practices what you'd do in that situation.

Intelligent P&IDs

Intelligent P&IDs and their Advantages

Intelligent P&IDs for piping systems are 2D Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams generated using symbols for equipment, instruments, components etc. and lines representing pipelines, instrumentation signal lines etc. as well as general elements, customized as per each client’s requirements. The information stored with each Intelligent P&ID consists of minimum required attributes for design, analysis, procurement, maintenance etc. The inputs for such intelligence would be from process flow sheets, instrumentation schematics, equipment data sheets, valve and instrumentation specification sheets, piping material specifications, etc. and can also be in the form of drawings and documents.

The P&ID database so generated from Intelligent P&IDs for the entire plant / project, when linked to the Central Database, the integrated Plant Information Management System, leads to numerous advantages over conventional non-intelligent P&IDs, as listed below.

Benefits for new “green-field” plants:

As project progresses, Intelligent P&ID

  • Captures, organizes and updates data related to design, procurement, construction etc.
  • Provides single data entry with outputs such as Line List, Valve List, Equipment List, etc.
  • Associates engineering data, drawings and documents to graphics.
  • Checks the integrity between the processes captured in that and the corresponding intelligent 3D Plant model at all times and helps in resolving discrepancies between them.
  • Alerts layout designers about process changes.
  • Generates standard AutoCAD files with built-in intelligence. Highlights graphically in Intelligent P&ID the equipment, valves, instruments and specialties that are placed in the 3D Plant model.
  • Generates reports on items placed in intelligent 3D Plant model in line with Intelligent P&IDs.

Benefits for operating “brown-field” plants:

  • From database, plant operating and maintenance (O&M) personnel could at any time rapidly retrieve attributes of equipment, nozzles, pipe lines, valves etc.
  • The plant O&M personnel could use it to arrive at alternate processes in case of failure of any equipment (such as a pump), leakage of a valve etc.
  • The database can be extended to include customized inspection / maintenance management functions or can be linked directly to the client’s in-house database systems.
  • This will also help in any future retrofit / expansion project.

What Education Do CAD Drafters (Designers) Need?

Today’s CAD designers will have to obtain, at the very minimum, an associate’s degree. Course work in this career field should ideally begin in high school, with a focus on art, science, computer technologies, math, and drafting. Upon entering college, students should continue to pursue courses they were unable to obtain in high school, as well as more courses in composition, engineering, technical drawing, manufacturing design processes, and CAD architectural drafting and dimensioning computer classes.

For those desiring a bachelor’s degree, most universities do not offer a 4-year degree in CAD design. However, there are viable degree choices to gain the educational experience required, such as in mathematics, engineering, computer architecture, and computer science. Some students opt to start an internship with an employer, after obtaining their associate’s degree and while pursuing a bachelor’s degree, as this helps enable them to choose the most appropriate degree and courses.

Job Responsibilities of CAD Designers

The primary job responsibility of designers will be the middle men and women who will have to bridge the gap between top level engineers and architects, and production/construction processes. In addition, CAD designers have to know how to read drawings and schematics to be able to answer questions posed to them by production/construction staff. Further, designers are going to have to become experts in their particular industry segment, as well as be proficient in basic drafting and the latest CAD computer technologies.

Salary Outlook for CAD Designers

Salaries for CAD designers are largely related to specific CAD industries. According to the www. pay scale.com Statistics, in 2015 starting salaries for CAD designers ranged from $51,038 to just over $62,000 annually. Designers who specialized in electrical fields commanded the higher starting salaries, while careers in mechanical, civil, and architectural related fields started at the lower end. It is important to remember that these are median salary ranges and other factors, like the cost of living in a particular area, influence the starting salaries being offered by employers.

For employers, CAD designers provide the opportunity to save money, since they can be tasked with the bulk of layout, modification, and change work, and they eliminate the need to have to pay a much more experienced professional to do this work. In addition, new designers provide employers the ability to train them to fit with their specific industry segment and processes. As a result, the turn-around time on projects is faster and is still completed accurately and precisely, allowing the business to take on more clients and expand their operations.

Paper Sketch to 3D Model

Paper Sketch to 3D Model

I’ve heard troubling talk over the use of sketches as a viable form of pre-design planning, and I’ve seen several experts, whose talent I respect greatly, make proclamations that performing a hand sketch prior to earnest software-based design work is a waste of time and energy.

The consensus seems to be that if you have the time to put pen to paper and sketch out a model, then you have time to sit down at your workstation, open up your CAD program, and start modeling correctly. I disagree. I think sketching out your ideas initially is a smart use of time.

First of all, it’s faster and easier than doing the same thing in software. Well, let me qualify that, it’s easier for me – maybe there are some hardcore CAD users out there who can model faster than I can sketch, but I don’t see how.

But more importantly, sketching out a model before I start drawing lines in CAD helps me get the get a proper mental picture of whatever it is I’m modeling. As I sketch, I can flip the object around freely in my mind – and I know there’s no one out there who can CAD faster than I can think! This helps me out a lot when it comes time to actually start building the object in software, since I’ve already got a series of snapshots lined up in my head.

Also, one other thing… I hate to try and romanticize my work, but isn’t this exactly why we started doing 3D modeling in the first place? Speaking for myself, the process of taking an object from my imagination and seeing it through the entire modeling process, seeing it come to life, and then actually holding a finished model in my hand is a rush. I still remember the first thing I drafted – it was just some architectural widget that I’ll probably never see again, but I was amazed that I could actually hold in my hand something that had sprung from my imagination.

To me, sketching is the first part of that realization process, and the process of moving something out of my imagination and into reality is the entire reason I fell in love with 3D modeling.

MY position is that there are many designers who still respect the purity – even the artistry – of professional 3D modeling, and I happen to be one of them.

CAD Drafters Career Opportunities

Over the past several decades, CAD drafters career opportunies were a valid position to pursue within the CAD design industry. With advances in technology and computer applications, career growth in this a particular segment has declined in recent years. The current expected outlook for this type of career field is only expected to grow at a rate of 1% through 2022, according to the Australian Bureau of Labor Statistics.

However, that does not necessarily mean there are not still career opportunities, so long as you have the right education and experience. In this post, we will review what a CAD drafter is, how this career field has changed, and where to find employment opportunities.

What Is a CAD Drafter?

When computers started to become more widely adapted within the CAD industry, not many engineers and architects had the experience or knowledge required to perform the task of transferring designs from paper to CAD software applications. Hence, the position of CAD drafter was created. A CAD drafter was the person responsible for converting the drawings and schematics from paper and recreating them in an appropriate software application, as well as making updates whenever modifications were made to the original drawings.

For people who were interested in computers, drawing, and design, this was a great career to pursue. In recent years, though, employers have started treating this job as an entry level position, because it does not involve having to fully understand the intricacies of the design process. Starting salaries are much lower today than they were five or even ten years ago, but, if you are looking to get into the CAD design industry, this is a great starting position while you continue to pursue your education and gain experience.

CAD Drafter Career Opportunities

The easiest way to get a positon as a CAD drafter is through an internship program while you are working on your associate’s or bachelor’s degree in CAD design. Many businesses in the CAD industry are rethinking this type of position and questioning whether it is still necessary. Their philosophy stems from the fact that their architects and engineers are already using CAD apps, so why should they pay a drafter to make changes when the original designer can do it themselves?

On the other hand, not all employers want to pay a highly experienced architect or engineer to make changes and modifications to their original designs. As a result, this leaves career opportunities in the market, most of which are made readily available through internship programs. Additionally, many employers are reclassifying the position by calling those within this career field CAD designers.
