Solid Modeling (CAD)

Streamlining Design and Production with Accurate 3D Component Models

For manufacturers in need of expert Computer Aided Design (CAD) and 3D modeling of a component, Quad City Manufacturing Laboratory (QCML) has experienced staff in solid modeling for accurate design and computational analyses.

Solid modeling is the process of using mathematical expressions to create a virtual representation of nearly any type of object, ranging from large scale structures to atomic particles. CAD software can be used to create a stand-alone component or to integrate multiple components to create complex assemblies such as an automobile or an industrial machine. Solid modeling plays a critical role in the production of nearly any component, especially for new manufacturing techniques like 3D printing.

QCML Solid Modeling Capabilities

QCML’s solid modeling excels when used with other software applications to enable various types of computational analyses, such as stress analysis, fluid flow analysis, or electrical simulation analysis. Our solid models can also be used in the production process to determine the consequences of modifying a given part dimension or part feature. This enables refinement of an object’s design without having to build it first, which reduces time and cost in both design and production.

Solid Modeling (CAD)

QCML solid modeling capabilities support a wide range of industries, including:

  • Aerospace
  • Agriculture
  • Automotive/Transportation
  • Defense/Government
  • Energy
  • General Manufacturing

For prototyping applications, a solid model can be used to generate an instruction set for various types of equipment, such as 3D printers or CNC machines, which can enable a fully-functional component to be produced.
