WHY USE CAD?


CAD drawings are used by a wide range of professions including Architectural, Civil Engineering, Construction, Electrical, Mechanical and Garden Design. CAD enables whoever is referring to the drawing to understand the project in depth and crucially, to understand design intent.

 

THREE KEY REASONS TO USE CAD

1
To create 2D drafting drawings

These can be used by all professions involved in the implementation of a project. CAD helps teams gain thorough understanding of a project in (e.g.) construction, manufacturing or product design.

 

2
To create 3D visualisations

Be it in construction, manufacturing or product design, 3D CAD allows you to manipulate a drawing and quickly create different views which can then be printed for future reference.

 

3
To create onscreen, 3D models of your space/building

Complete with walls, furniture, etc. this powerful feature enables you to present your design from different angles and create walk-through animations.

 

 

So much work in the building services sector is over-specified, needlessly increasing costs during installation and resulting in works being far more complicated than necessary.
Over-specified work can also result in further problems once completed and can cost the client further unnecessary, expensive maintenance.
Erridge Consulting provide drafting and specifications to help you keep your project on budget and under control.
