With custom CAD and our digitizing process, we can provide a variety of solutions for every need you have. Here, we will discuss the benefits of CAD and custom digitizing so you can see why it will benefit your business.

What is it?

Computer aided design, CAD, is a new-age, simple way to get the exact look you need when designing patterns for your glass needs. All you have to do is provide our team with a design or pattern you want us to follow, and we will create exactly what you need. The patterns are typically traced or cut out of paper. By using CAD, you can replace custom pieces of glass without knowing the dimensions.

By digitizing the designs using CAD, the images you provide are put into the program in vector format. This format allows our technicians to edit the drawings at will, which helps design process and aids in determining the dimensions. From there, our expert team can add edgework and other amenities to the glass as soon as it has been created.
