Why Choose Hand to CAD Drafting?
2D CAD Conversion
3D CAD Conversion Service
Exact Specifications

We can convert all aspects of your drawings including and not limited to elevations, floor plans, electrical layouts, any details, detail sheets, architectural, structural sheets and much, much more.

We manually redraw the evertything, using your layers, styles and conventions all with pinpoint accuracy and dimensioning (or ours if you don’t have a preference). When we finish its an exact copy of the original, only in cad. We use Autocad 2022 and can save down to any previous version. We have numerous drafting programs if you require a different file format.

Finished files are emailed as both a .dwg and a .pdf file formats. Unless you would like them in another format.

Hand Conversion Only

These are not raster to vector conversions. Hand to CAD completely converts your drawings as if we were the designer/architect themselves which obviously, significantly cuts your costs. Raster to vector conversion is widely used for conversion services but create inaccurate conversions that were not meant for construction purposes but for general backups of CAD Files. Hand to CAD does not use raster to vector conversion.

We provide raster to vector conversion service to convert different kinds of raster images in the form of JPEG, GIF, SCAN, PNG, PSD, PDF, BMP, TIF, DOC, PPT as well as line art, drawings (engineering, mechanical, architectural), blue prints, illustrations, business logo, maps (contour, soil, flood, topography, parcel, sewer), aerial images into superior quality, completely scalable & editable vectors file can be converted into scalable vector.

We have expertise in providing customized, cost effective and precise 2D and 3D CAD conversion services by applying specialized design software and technology. Our 2D to 3D conversion service is designed for AEC (civil, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, HVAC), Manufacturing, Defense, Aerospace sectors. We can convert any hard copy document as well as 2d data, 2d sketches, 2d drawing, building design to immersive 3D solid model/parametric model/high resolution 3D image through some leading 3D programs like AutoCAD, BIM, Revit, Solid Works, Catia, 3ds Max etc. We can also convert any autocad files and Tif, PDF files into a BIM model.

We follow your exact specifications, from layers and text to symbols, titleblock, scale, hatching, custom linetypes, viewports, x-refs, z-values, polygon layers, attributed blocks, and much more! No drawing is too complex or too dense. As-built, sketches, markups, and oversized sheets are no problem! You can supply field notes and we can incorporate the data into the CAD files. We can merge separate sheets into a single CAD file, with edge-to-edge matching or overlays.

Our Conversions are:

Dimensionally accurate – We match the dimensions shown on the drawing. Dimensions shown on the original are included in the CAD file. Any discrepancies will be addressed.

Scale – We match the scale, if they are shown. If they are not shown then we match the original print scale or raster image.

Text – 100% accurate and consistent text.

QC – Each CAD file is completely checked and are guaranteed accuracy using repeat checking procedures.

Titleblock – We insert a standard titleblock with basic information to identify the drawing which you can either keep or we can use the titleblock drawn.

Areas drawn – We draw everything shown on the drawing except for signatures, approval stamps, crossed-out text, and crossed-out views. By eliminating these areas (which many customers don’t want anyway) we can keep your costs as low as possible.

Layers – We use standard layers (such as AIA) for clear separation of information.

Linetypes, blocks, hatching – We add these to exactly match the original.

We are the leader in the industry
