What we do <ul><li>Interactive Cad Solutions is a mechanical engineering design company that specializes in providing quality services to companies willing to outsource their design – drafting, either to small entrepreneurs, or large corporations. Our main goal is to offer you the best CAD services for all your engineering needs in implementing and developing CAD/CAM activities. </li></ul>
Features & Benefits <ul><li>Cad Translation. </li></ul><ul><li>Design Optimization thru FEA. </li></ul><ul><li>Parametric 3D Modeling. </li></ul><ul><li>Rapid Prototyping. </li></ul><ul><li>Reverse Engineering. </li></ul>
Parametric 3D Modeling <ul><li>Drawings are automatically updated as the design changes due to associatively. </li></ul><ul><li>Simulation in 3D cad programs can reduce the cost of prototypes by analyzing range of motion and checking for interferences. </li></ul><ul><li>3-D modeling allows lifelike representation of a design, from structural composition and the way parts fit and move together, to the performance impact of characteristics such as size, thickness, and weight. </li></ul>
Cad Translation At Interactive Cad Solutions, we have an in depth knowledge of CAD data exchange and specialize in translating both native and neutral CAD file formats. We can translate and transfer a wide range of CAD data files such as Pro/ENGINEER, Unigraphics and Mechanical Desktop into IGES, STEP, DXF, VRML, Parasolid or STL. Conversion of legacy 2D drawings can be converted with Scan2cad. This technology allows us to change a raster image into a vector format, which can be exported as a dxf. With our state of the art technology and many years of experience, we are able to offer a fast, low cost file translation service. In addition, we are creating an information resource to provide the CAD user with the knowledge and data exchange techniques for a wide range of CAD file formats.
Design Optimization COSMOS DesignSTAR can perform the following types of analyses: • Linear stress analysis • Natural frequencies and mode shape calculations • Critical buckling load estimation • Linear and nonlinear steady state and transient heat transfer analysis • Nonlinear stress analysis

Rapid Prototyping <ul><li>Stereolithography (STL) is the creation of a models printed on a three dimensional printer. The model is created by exposing a light sensitive liquid photopolymer to a laser beam. As the photopolymer cures, a new layer is constantly being added. A typical model can be produced in hours rather than being machined from raw stocks of metal. </li></ul><ul><li>Because the STL is generated from the three dimensional model, time is not lost detailing a paper space drawing, request for quotes, and machining time. Stereolithography, photochemical machining, laser sintering, and laminated-object manufacturing use 3D CAD data to produce models in hours. Most of these processes make parts from plastic. A model can be built from layers of liquid plastic, fused from plastic powders, or cut from partially cured polymer. </li></ul><ul><li>The corporate rush to get products to market as fast as possible has generated demand to create prototypes from solid models as fast as possible. Rapid prototyping has been used to describe a process of creating parts as solid models which are directly interpreted and fabricated by methods exotic (like Stereolithography) and humble (like Computer Numerically Controlled, or (CNC, mill). </li></ul>
Reverse Engineering <ul><li>The original manufacturer of a product no longer produces a product. </li></ul><ul><li>There is inadequate documentation of the original design. </li></ul><ul><li>The original manufacturer no longer exists, but a customer needs the product. </li></ul><ul><li>The original design documentation has been lost or never existed. </li></ul><ul><li>Some bad features of a product need to be designed out. For example, excessive wear might indicate where a product should be improved. </li></ul><ul><li>To strengthen the good features of a product based on long-term usage of the product. </li></ul><ul><li>To analyze the good and bad features of competitors' product. </li></ul><ul><li>To explore new avenues to improve product performance and features. </li></ul><ul><li>To gain competitive benchmarking methods to understand competitor's products and develop better products. </li></ul><ul><li>The original CAD model is not sufficient to support modifications or current manufacturing methods. </li></ul><ul><li>The original supplier is unable or unwilling to provide additional parts. </li></ul><ul><li>The original equipment manufacturers are either unwilling or unable to supply replacement parts, or demand inflated costs for sole-source parts. </li></ul><ul><li>To update obsolete materials or antiquated manufacturing processes with more current, less-expensive technologies. </li></ul>Following are reasons for reverse engineering a part or product:
High quality mesh <ul><li>HITECH MOLD </li></ul>
Audio Visual Instructions (AVI) <ul><li>AVI has the benefit of showing a client or vendor an assembly presentation to more clearly demonstrate how parts in an assembly interact and fit together. For example, you can use an animated exploded assembly view to illustrate assembly instructions. </li></ul><ul><li>Audio Visual Instructions (AVI) offers the ability to demonstrate the form, fit, and functions of a design, prior to building a prototype. </li></ul>
Applications <ul><li>Low overhead. </li></ul><ul><li>Quick turn around on projects. </li></ul><ul><li>Free up key employees time. </li></ul>
Pricing <ul><li>Services are provided at the lowest cost possible. </li></ul><ul><li>Jobs are typically quoted on a total cost basis up front, allowing customers to make effective decisions beforehand, and avoiding cost overruns. </li></ul>
