Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology has become invaluable to the construction industry. As well as helping architects and manufacturers design impeccably precise structural plans, CAD is essential for steel detailing and other types of technical tasks. In fact, many project managers are starting to hire CAD professionals to help with the drawing and design stage of construction projects, thus saving time and money in the long term.

Unfortunately, a few myths have bubbled up about CAD services, leading some to discredit 3D and 2D designs created by outsourced professionals. To help you understand why we at Restoric Design are proud to use 3D and 2D CAD models across a range of industries and applications, we’ve busted a few misconceptions about this amazing technology and service below:

Myth #1: Outsourced professionals produce unrealistic designs

Some people believe that CAD professionals are unfamiliar with the world of business and unable to create designs that are cost-effective or can be completed in a timely manner. This couldn’t be further from the truth, however. Modern CAD technicians are trained to create realistic and commercially practical designs that fulfil the needs of clients. By working closely with clients, CAD designers work hard to add value to their assigned projects.

At Restoric Design, for example, we are committed to honouring client budgets and go out of our way to keep costs down. We don’t charge by the hour, establishing a fair quote from the outset of every project.

Myth #2: CAD projects take a long time to complete

On the contrary – outsourcing your fabrication drawings can actually speed up the construction process and ensure that your project is delivered on time. If you’re wondering whether to invest in CAD services, rest assured that outsourced teams are accustomed to working together quickly to produce amazing designs that won’t let you down.

Myth #3: Outsourcing CAD is too expensive

While 3D CAD services aren’t necessarily cheap, they will deliver an excellent return on investment (ROI). Whether you need to design steel staircases, ladders, or mezzanine floors, a CAD drawing will help you to avoid costly mistakes and deliver a precise outcome.

While some project managers and construction professionals are tempted to purchase CAD software for themselves, this could end up costing much more money than relying on professionals. Broadly speaking, cutting-edge CAD software is expensive and can take a long time to learn. By relying on trained experts, you can rest assured that you’re getting the most up-to-date knowledge and expertise from people who truly care about your project.

Myth #4: Outsourcing CAD means losing control of your project

Again, CAD professionals are accustomed to working closely with clients to deliver results that work. Our team of friendly experts, for example, look to clients for direction and will ask as many questions as necessary to deliver clear drawings that operatives understand. Rather than taking control of the design process, they treat projects as partnerships and are open to taking guidance. At the same time, of course, outsourcing your CAD services is a great way to save time and get on with other tasks.
