NURBS Surface Modelling

We use Rhinoceros (Rhino 3D) for designing and modelling 3D surfaces, regarded as the industry leading NURBS modelling software.

For rendering VRAY is our chosen engine.

NURBS, Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines, are mathematical representations of 3D geometry that can accurately describe any shape from a simple 2D line, circle, arc or curve to the most complex 3D organic free-form surface or solid. Because of their flexibility and accuracy, NURBS models can be used in any process from illustration and animation to manufacturing.

If you have a surface modelling project you need help with please get in touch.

 

 

 

 

 

CAD Services

Cubes CAD specialize in providing CAD services for design engineers, engineering companies, drawing offices, inventors and manufacturing companies who do not have CAD capabilities or require outsourcing due to workload.

We have gained a reputation for our reliable, cost effective and responsive services for engineering, construction, architectural and creative sectors.

Our experience within various engineering and design disciplines along with qualified CAD skill sets enables us to provide a flexible, professional and complete service.

We’re established, cost effective, confidential and reliable.

3D Scanning with Digital Photogrammetry

Digital Photogrammetry is the acquisition of 3D reference points using digital cameras (spatial triangulation of images)

Using professional full size image sensor DSLR cameras and industry leading reality capture software we are able to produce highly accurate 3D mesh files (STL) of your subject matter.
A mesh file conversion to solid model service is also available.

Typical service areas:

  • Reverse Engineering
  • Surveying
  • Archaeology
  • Historical Reconstruction
  • Geology
  • Game asset creation
  • Film, gaming & animation

 

Industry Sectors:

  • Product Design Companies
  • Engineering
  • Heritage
  • Preservation
  • Manufacturing

A detailed view of the mesh file produced is shown below along with a mesh report:
Number of Vertices = 186,000
Number of Faces = 365,000Scanned Leg image_5

Benefits of using Digital Photogrammetry:

  • Technique is non-intrusive
  • Ideal for historical data acquisition
  • A high level of accuracy is achievable
  • Ensures total flexibility with digital data
  • Cost effective compared to other techniques

Whether you need to reverse engineer an existing component for further development and manufacture, or you require a highly detailed photo realistic model please contact us for further details.

CAD Outsourcing & Support

Reduce CAD overheads and project costs. Architects, Engineers, Designers and Managers can focus on key areas of expertise rather than working on drawing production tasks such as CAD Conversion, CAD design drafting, 3D modelling, managing CAD staff and office resources.

If you do not want to sustain the costs of hiring a full-time draughtsman and prefer to eliminate the cost of a full time employee, and to pay for the work only when you need it. Contact Cubes CAD to discuss your requirements.

Revit family creation services now available

Revit families and content can be created from your existing 2D drawings or even sketches, if you wish to make your products or 2D data available in a 3D BIM format for specifying, or alternatively we could convert your existing 3D CAD manufacturing geometry depending on your requirements. If you need Revit families and content for your internal business, or if you manufacture for construction and need to provide Revit ready BIM content for specification purposes, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

2D Drawing & Detailing

We provide a wide range of 2d Drawing services within various industry sectors including Engineering and Architecture.

2d drawing & detailing still accounts for a large portion of our customers’ needs and is in our daily workflow, here are some examples of the 2D drawing work applications we have been involved with and offer:

  • Shop / fabrication drawings
  • Manufacturing drawings, geometric tolerances
  • Sheet-metalwork fabrication drawings
  • Structural steelwork general arrangements and detailing for fabrication
  • Technical illustration documents
  • Architectural plans
  • Planning applications and building regulation drawings
  • Schematic drawings

We are passionate about drawing standards and best practice, this passion began life on a traditional drawing board over 20 years ago.

The following are a few Industry sectors we have worked in:

  • Industrial steel doors.
  • Material handling.
  • Structural steelwork, latticed portal frame buildings.
  • Space planning.
  • Electronics enclosures.
  • Industrial design.
