CAD (Computer-aided design) is a descriptive term for the use of computer software to support the creation, modification, and analysis of a design. By utilising software programmes, it can enhance productivity and efficiency of designers as well as improving the quality of designs. Although CAD is often used to create figures and design curves in 2D, it can also be used to create curves and solids in 3D.
Accessing CAD drawings from manufacturers allows Architects to have dimensionally accurate and detailed drawings regarding the products they’re looking to include on building designs. Having the latest product information and the confidence these details are correct, is instrumental in delivering a good specification for a build programme.
At Marley we understand the importance of delivering specifiers accurate information to meet tight deadlines. If you can’t find the information you need within the CAD drawings provided on our website, then please contact our dedicated technical team who will be more than happy to help. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you need.
Don’t forget to take a look at our technical data sheets that are listed on each product page giving you detailed technical performance information and our range of BIM models may be useful too.
If you’re ready to build your specification, why not use our online tools to help you. Our technical services area allows you to create estimates, NBS and fixing specifications for your projects. We also have a solar configurator which allows you to build a solar array and look at the power output it will generate.
