Posted on December 28, 2012

Do you have paper drawings that need to be accurately converted into CAD within a short time period and at a low cost? If yes, then you can try outsourcing CAD to India.  Paper to CAD conversion is the process of converting scanned paper drawings into accurate CAD drawings. Outsourcing CAD drawings to India has become a popular trend today, with most global companies choosing India for their quality services and competitive prices. When an Indian service provider converts your paper drawings into CAD, you can be sure of a drastic improvement in your overall productivity and quality.

Almost any kind of architectural or mechanical drawing can be converted into AutoCAD, be it elevations, plans, sections, plumbing, sanitation and piping, electrical, HVAC, survey drawings, landscape drawings or structural drawings.

Why choose CAD drawings over paper?

Having all your important drawings in paper is a great risk, as paper is subject to wear and tear. Moreover paper drawings can fade with time, are expensive to store and are not easily accessible. AutoCAD drawings can be easily reviewed, edited or plotted. Since they are in electronic format, these drawings can be easily stored or shared.

India is well known for its high quality CAD drawings

Indian outsourcing companies have always been a class above the rest because of their high quality CAD drawings. Indian services providers like Flatworld Solutions use trained AutoCAD drafters to manually trace scanned drawings, PDF files and blueprints. The completed AutoCAD files are then checked by certified architects for accuracy. Quality is maintained by following AIA standard conventions and by using standard title blocks, layers and line weights.

You can outsource any format of drawing to India, be it paper, PDF, TIFF, JPEG, BMP, Blueprints, Raster images, scanned documents, hand sketches or hand scribbles. Outsourcing to India can give you the assurance of 100% dimensionally accurate CAD drawings that are high on quality and precision. Outsourcing paper to CAD is the best way for your company to digitize drawings into CAD.

Today there are automatic conversions of paper to CAD drawings. But these lack in accuracy and are bound to have irregularities in line and scale. Workable, accurate and quality AutoCAD files can only be achieved by manual redrawing by expert CAD drafters. Indian architectural drafters are experts at manually re-drawing and are skilled at using popular CAD drawing software like ADT, ArchiCAD and AutoCAD.
