Why 3D Modeling is so Important


If you are still drafting in two dimensions you are missing some important advancements. 3D modeling has changed the way project designs are presented. It is like combining multiple 2D drawings and pasting them together. It has undoubtedly changed the way we look at projects and how we present information.

In 2D, you can have many solid and hidden lines adding detail and depth to your drawing, but if your customer cannot visualize what is going on, your vision is lost.

The saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” is truly multiplied when an image can be moved, rotated, manipulated, and colored. 3D modeling can give you a beautiful one shot picture of your design. It is more realistic, quicker and easier than 2D. You can also place your project in other 3D models to check clearances, address access and egress, and even visualize sight lines. Easy on the spot changes can be made to determine their viability.

3D models can be used to create 2D drawings directly. This means that the cost of changes to the design are much less. Modifying a 3D model is relatively inexpensive and the 2D drawings can be reproduced rather quickly.

3D modeling is a technology through which three dimensional models of any given object can be created. The technology is quite essential for several reasons which are clearly explained below.


  • 3D models are very meticulous and provide immense details about each element, which help in communicating the information with ease and allow viewers to understand design in lot better way.
  • Product design process has become easy with 3D modeling as we can create three dimensional models virtually for any object no matter how gigantic or micro it is. This very fact helps creating an exquisite design for any product.
  • The accuracy which 3D models contain is unparallel and no other conventional modeling or visualizing approach can be as accurate as 3D modeling.
  • If we would particularly talk about construction industry architectural, structural and MEP 3D models allow professionals to discover errors or clashes between multidiscipline building elements much ahead of actual construction.


3D Solid Modelling


Associative links between parts, assemblies and drawings allows for shorter time to market, greater productivity and lower cost. Reduce design errors with lifelike visualisation and virtual testing prior to manufacture.


SOLIDWORKS software allows you to speed up the design process whilst reducing time and development costs, increase your productivity with SOLIDWORKS’ exemplary SOLIDWORKS 3D design software.


3D solid modelling has evolved into a crucial aspect of any product development, acting as the foundation for design, simulation, and manufacturing of any part and assembly affecting a vast range of industries, products and applications.
