Gaatech – 2D & 3D CAD Design Service

Our In-house 2D & 3D CAD Design service allows us to transform your design, from perhaps a hand drawn concept sketch, rough sketch, or from a line drawing, into a computer generate design.  From the CAD data files we generate ‘G’ Code, a language that our CNC routing machine understands.

Your design is able to have square external corners, though we recommend that a very small radius is used to remove the sharp edges, internal corner must have a radius, we recommend a minimum radius of 1.5mm. Tight internal corners can generate a weak points in your design.

Our 2D & 3D design service is fast and flexible.

Helpful Video – Turning a CAD Design in to CNC Routing Data

We have a video that may be useful for you to view before starting your design, so that you have an understanding who your design will be eventually cut “Learn about 2D and 3D file conversion in to CNC “G Code” This video may help to reduce your production cost.

Design Service

No matter what level of service you require, we will always look over your design of any obvious errors, regarding radius, holes and spacing before cutting, and let you know our recommendations. However if you follow our guide lines you should not go too far wrong. We can always draft your design in a cheaper material first, so that you can check it, which is highly recommend, especially if it’s your first design.

Fr4 Coloured Sheets

During our own design processes we sometimes find that once a design has been cut, and/or assembled that small “tweaks” are required to “perfect the design” or the change the way the unit is assembled.

When we are ready to cut a design a sheet of material, normally Carbon – FR4 – G10 (white, black, natural or red) is placed upon our own CNC router, it has a vacuum hold down bed, that holds the sheet material in place. A router bit, is then selected depending upon the type and thickness of material being routed.

Router Bit Size

We normally use a 3mm diameter router bit, that allows for some intricate designs to be cut. We are able to use smaller cutters 1, 1.5 & 2mm, but these are more expensive and the benefits of a slightly smaller radius is not normally cost effective.

Once your design has been cut, the parts will be cleaned off with compressed air and dispatched to you. We also wash the parts in water to try and remove all of the dust generated during the cutting process.
