CAD/CAM Design

Designing and creating a product can be difficult at every stage. At Trufab, we use a combination of skilled experts alongside state-of-the-art technology, such as CAD and CAM design software to create products quickly and cost-effectively for each of our clients.

What is CAD/CAM Design?

While you may not have heard of these before, both fall into 3D programming, as they’re design software used to create high-quality products from sheet metal and other materials.

  • CAD Design – this stands for computer-aided design and is used by engineers, architects, artists, drafters and others to create either drawings or technical illustrations with expert precision in 2D and 3D.
  • CAM Design  also known as ‘cam profile design’ this is used to get maximum performance from cam gear, which is the movement within machines, to make it fast and reliable.
3D Programming Services at Trufab

Within our Greater Manchester facility, we have state-of-the-art 3D programming software that puts our team at the forefront of what they do when combined with their specialist knowledge.

Helping to rapidly fold and assemble sheet metal into any shape, the software available in-house at Trufab includes:

  • Radan
  • SolidWorks

SolidWorks and Radan are solid modelling computer-aided design software that enable us to launch production quicker. These rapidly transfer programming jobs to laser, punch and CNC Press Brakes by unfolding the design directly into a sheet metal format, which enables a smooth and effective workflow from design to manufacture.

The software editor tool automatically establishes the most cost-effective process, keeping material waste to a minimum, saving lead time and client expenses.
