Engineer - Our Design Engineers can run FEA analysis on your designs to ensure feasibility & reduce prototyping costs


Manufacture - Using our trusted group of contractors we can produce trial parts as well as batches for production




3D Drafting Service

2D Drafting Services

Using SolidWorks Premium 2013 we can create new or alter existing geometry on any number of parts or assembly files. File formats include .igs, .stp, .stl, proE/Creo files.


Our 3D drafting service allows our customers to visualise their concept as a finished product. Viewing a design in 3D  allows the design engineer to  spot defects easily and modify the design where necessary. Using rendering techniques we can place these 3D models in realistic environments.


Using Creo Elements Direct Drafting we are able to accept a range of formats including .mi, .dxf, .dwg & .igs files.


Our 2D drafting service ranges from drawing revisions through to entire design projects. We can produce a range of views & elevations as well as site layouts to meet your requirements.


Redraw Service/ 2D to 3D Conversions

Engineering Design Analysis

Using SolidWorks Premium Simulation we can analyse the strengths of each design by adding multiple loading conditions. We can test against a broad range of parameters during the design process, such as durability, static and dynamic loads & heat transfer.


By doing this we can detect potential faults and weaknesses in the design before the manufacturing process begins, saving the customer both time and money.

Service available from our office, print size up to A1.

Our designers have experience designing various tooling including:


- Forging dies

- Press tooling

- Machine tooling

- Casting moulds



Tooling Design

Plotting Services


We can create new electronic drawings from old paper drawings. The benefits of this include;


- Allows  easy access to drawing information,

- Allows customer to make multiple copies for safe storage,

- Allows customer to change the drawing geometry for any future modifications


With 2D to 3D conversion, any old paper drawings or 2D CAD files can be modelled and saved in a 3D format. In a world where 3D CAD is becoming the industry standard you can ensure that your designs are future proof.


Turnkey Design

Sheffield CAD Services also offer a turn key project design service and can also quote to manufacture products through our trusted group of fabricators, machinists and electrical contractors.
