2D CAD Conversion Traditional Mediums to Full CAD

We believe that here at WAs, it is far better that all our CAD drawings are created by hand. That is to say each one is manually plotted from the supplied raw information. We do not use automatic programs or scanning software. We believe this type of automation generates errors and produces a non-perfect CAD drawing – all though this means from our point of view there is significant editing work the finished product justifies it.


This means from IHS you will get a quality CAD file that requires no further editing on the part of the client.



How do you get the drawings to us?

All you need to do is simply post or scan and email us your the drawings and your requirements and we will take care of the rest. If the drawings are large format, over A4, then we can supply a list of nationwide copy centers who can scan and send them all on to us automatically.
