WHAT IS 2D CAD?


In essence, 2D CAD drawings are printable diagrams showing all information necessary to understand a product, construction, installation etc.

CAD drawings show the plan, elevations and annotations with measurements. This enables whoever is referring to the drawing to understand the design in depth and detail.

Types of 2D CAD Drawing


2D CAD Drawings can be split into 3 main groups:

1

Product Drawings


(including Manufacturing Drawings, Fabrication Drawings etc.)
2D CAD drawings are still used as a main reference point by the majority of fabricators and manufacturers.

 

2

Construction drawings


(including Architectural Drawings, Floor Plans, M&E Drawings etc.)
As with Product Drawings, most installers, builders etc. work from 2D CAD drawings. Depending on requirements, these can either start in 3D (Floor Plans, Elevations, Pipe Runs) or in the case of M&E Drawings, show symbols (switches, sockets, toilets, baths, etc.) on a 2D Floor Plan.

 

3

Line Drawings


(including Schematic, MAP Drawings, Simple Layout Drawings).
These drawings are created in CAD Packages such as Autodesk, AutoCad or Sketchup - to name just a few.

 

I produce high quality, fully compliant drawings for a wide range of services and industries, including high quality 2D CAD drafting services for Architectural, Civil Engineering, Construction, Electrical, Mechanical and Garden Design.

Drawings can be supplied in a variety of printed sizes: A4, A3, A1, A0 or in digital foramts, e.g. DWG, BMP, PDF, DXF, PDF.

Fixed costs can be provided for any of the above-mentioned CAD services. The number of revisions to each drawing is limited, so I ask for as much information as possible to be provided before any work is started.

ALL DRAWINGS ARE CARRIED OUT TO BRITISH AND ISO STANDARDS AND ARE FULLY COMPLIANT WITH BUILDING REGULATIONS.
