2D Drawings Converted to 3D Solid Models
At Delta Engineering, we can take your 2D drawings and sketches, and convert them to 3D models, as shown with the
detail drawing and its associated solid model below. The solid model can be analyzed to determine mass properties,
volumes, surface areas, weights, etc. The model below contains a coordinate system at the model's origin, and a
symbol indicating the location of its center of gravity. A SolidWorks mass properties calculation derermined the
following mass properties:
1. Center of Gravity:
X = -101.93 mm.
Y = 0.10 mm.
Z = -0.09 mm.
2. Mass = 8.27 kg.
3. Surface Area = 141446 mm^2.
4. Volume = 1046214 mm*3.
We also have experience with reverse engineering existing equipment, which consists of creating drawings of existing
equipment, calculating mass properties, and incorporating customer requested improvements.

Solid Models are rigorous
computer data structures that
contain an unambiguous
representation of the nominal
geometry of an object. Solid
models and solid modeling
operations enable geometric
computations about the design
that were not possible with earlier
CAD systems. With solid
modeling, the emphasis in CAD
is shifted from data for visual
communication to product data
models that can be used for more
sophisticated computer analyses
and more automation.
