Design Software Capabilities

We Can Read Your Files and Drawings

Solidworks Software CapableLee Metal Fabrication has a wide variety of software tools to help us in your design. Whether you have simple DFX files to very large 3-D Models, we have the software to accommodate your needs. We can also take a simple sketch or blue printed drawings and turn them into computerized files.

To draw parts on the computer for our clients, we can work from a drawing off the back of a napkin or a mock-up of parts prepared in a file type we can read, such as JPG, GIF, BMP, or PDF.

The CNC Programmers at Lee Metal Fabrication can handle nearly any file format or template. For any file, it is important to validate that dimensions are correct, especially when moving from a flat pattern to a formed part. Parts get complex with bends, tabs, and holes, and details can get overlooked.

Accuracy issues surface with file transfers and drawing changes. Mistakes are easy to make when revisions are made. At times, we'll find a feature that’s missing or an additional feature on the file that’s not on the vector drawing,
