Raster Vector Conversion,Raster Vs Vector CAD/CAM Services converts over $1 million of CAD drawings into CAD Perfect files each year. It is not uncommon for us to convert 2-4,000 drawings per year for a single client. We are happy to work with you to convert one (1) drawing or a room full. Each and every customer is treated as if you have 4,000 drawings to convert.
Our work is quite serious and professionally completed. 80% of our work priced between $125 - $225 per sheet. The difference being how 'busy' each sheet is. Most of the time we simply offer a fixed cost per sheet. This is better for you in that you know what your fixed costs are.
Your delivery schedules are important to us. We are one of the very few firms who can produce CAD work 23 hours per day (3 shifts). On quantities of 1-10 drawings, our delivery time is 48-72 hours. We do not base our fees upon how soon you need the drawings.
Raster Vector Conversion,Raster Vs Vector It is common for us to receive your work via Fed X, UPS, etc., and in an effort to save your valuable time, we then email or FTP the completed work back to you as soon as it is ready. Your original drawings are usually then returned via USPS Priority Mail. This has turned out to be a very cost effective way to transmit work. We currently receive and send work all over the US every day.
Raster Vector Conversion,Raster Vs Vector CAD/CAM SERVICES utilizes many different conversion methods. We use in-house CAD conversion products from, GTX, Hitachi, I/Vector, and Softelec. Along with quite a few routines and programs we have written. Unfortunately we have found that one R/V conversion product does not fit all. It is not uncommon with 100 drawings, that 30% are converted via one (1) method, the next 40% are converted via a different method, and the remaining are hand redrawn. Please do not be mislead with R/V software vendors promising 'automatic raster to vector conversion'. Simply put, it is not true. These products are tools - and only tools. They all help in our conversion process, but they are not the cure-alls they claim to be. We spend hours, and hours inside of your drawings to get them to be 100% correct.
We can scan and convert ANY drawing to CAD. CAD/CAM has over 13+ years converting drawings into CAD Perfect electronic files.
Our deliverable is a ‘CAD perfect’ CAD drawing. This includes real lines, arcs, circles, text as text, etc. At a minimum, each drawing is produced with 3-7 layers (levels) and colors. In addition, we often use your layering scheme - at no extra cost.
Our end-result should look as you had redrawn the drawings by hand yourself. Our accuracy is good to within the width of the original line work on that printed page. In fact, for some of our military and aircraft work, we have had to achieve accuracy down to .005". We are one of the few firms in the world that can produce this type of work.
We also offer as an option to go in and verify and fix each and every dimension in a drawing. So if the original sheet may be off by say 9%, we will go in and actually move any line / entity work required for it to be exactly correct. There is a charge a 15-20% surcharge for this.
