Whether transformation of hand-drawn 2D models into feature-based 3D CAD data or a transfer into other 3D formats - via the clous app you will receive your desired file with all features for downstream processing within 24-48 hours.

The CAD.Converter creates parametric 3D CAD models from technical drawings or 3D CAD models in a CAD system of your choice.

Your benefits

  • done

    99 % time saving

    Within hours clous provides you with 3D CAD models from any 2D or 3D drawings in your desired format - feature-based. The data transformation is done automatically and - if required - with the help of manual design support from clous' selected global workforce.

  • done

    50% reduced personnel costs

    By using clous.CAD.Converter you can reduce your internal costs by outsourcing repetitive, non-value adding processes. With the help of clous you automate up to 60% of your engineering activities and save costs with each usage thanks to the transparent Pay-Per-Use model.

  • done

    100 % increase in productivity

    By outsourcing and automating time-consuming manual engineering processes, your engineers have more room for creativity. Timely data delivery suitable for your target system supports you in a smooth workflow.

Main features

    • Transformation from 2D drawing to any 3D CAD model

      • Even today, companies often have technical drawings on paper or as PDFs. These documents are difficult to process by machine. clous takes over the processing of unstructured data for you in order to make them usable for subsequent automation and engineering processes.

    • Transformation from 3D data into 3D CAD models

      • No matter if SolidWorks, CATIA, NX file or neutral exchange formats like STEP, IGES, VRML, …: With clous your data is modeled according to your wishes in the target system - depending on the use case with structure tree and features that enable smooth downstream processing.

    • Hybrid automation of engineering processes

      • clous' algorithms automatically parse out the information from the source file that is needed to create a 3D model. If the application detects an error, the project is completed manually by a vetted expert from the clous Global Workforce.

    • Transparent quality assurance

      • To ensure that the 3D models correspond exactly to the underlying drawings or the 3D data, various quality assurance methods are used: For the 2D-to-3D transformation, a drawing is derived from the 3D model and compared with the original. For the 3D-to-3D transformation, a red/green comparison is used to ensure that the two volumes match. Since we think engineering as a transparent process, we also make this data available to you.

    • Data delivery within a few hours

      • Reduce delays in your workflow. After file upload, automated modeling of your 3D data begins immediately. With more than 100 vetted engineering talents worldwide, we guarantee delivery of your final data in the shortest possible time.

    • Process automation as a pay-per-use model

      • For many companies, investing in their own automation solution is a major financial step. clous facilitates your access to process automation with a user-friendly Pay-Per-Use model. Instead of project-related price calculations or high set-up or maintenance costs, clous offers you fixed prices per use and framework agreements for the duration of a few months with increasing rebates up to one year.
