3D Modelling and Drafting

Our 3D Modelling & Drafting Process

Our 3D modelling and visualisation skills allow clear and easy communication of your idea throughout your organization and to your client.

From early design concepts of a complete production facility or process to intricate detail of the smallest component, our 3D modelling approach streamlines the design process and provides the vehicle for all stakeholders to easily gain a clear understanding of your project and make valuable contributions throughout the design process.

CDE has produced many concept and visualisation projects for local and interstate clients to enable communication of ideas and projects. This work reflects the growing use of 3D modelling and animation software in engineering projects. Clients no longer need to interpret 2D flat plan drawings.

CDE makes extensive use of 3D models, animations, and visualisation to allow clear communication of design intent to project team members, process operators, management, contractors, and suppliers.

All work is drawn to AS1100 or if you prefer, your corporate or statutory drafting standards.
