We provide complete paper-to-CAD conversions and CAD drafting services. The end result is an outstanding product of high quality and precision. Although conversions can sometimes be very difficult, our years of experience give us the ability to accurately capture old, smudged and dense information. We also apply expert processes that help to ensure that the output is perfectly accurate.

We provide a paper to CAD conversion service for transferring hand sketches and plan drawings into your required CAD format. Engineering and shop drawings can also be converted from existing paper documentation. Suitable for HVAC, product design, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, retail, commercial and domestic spaces.

Outputs can be extended from black-and-white line drawings to refined presentation and marketing images. Drawing templates and CAD protocols come as standard and can be customized for the client.


CAD Conversion

With our CAD Conversion service, you can now be able to replace your old CAD system. Most of the time, these outdated systems contain highly valuable company information which can be time-consuming and quite expensive to recreate. As a result of this, a legacy system might be maintained to access data that is never upgraded to the new CAD software.

In addition, it would have been much easier to access and make use of large vaults of CAD information if the drawings had been saved as readable PDFs.

With DAP, this labour-intensive CAD work can be handled cost effectively to ensure that the process of data management is very effective. This helps our clients to channel their resources towards more important aspects of their business and downtime is reduced to a minimum.

AS Built/ As Constructed Drawings

We offer CAD drafting services that supports As Built Drawings for Electrical, Mechanical and Heating, Hydraulic, including Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) projects. You can have your commercial and residential buildings, government and education contracts all prepared to a drafting standard of premium quality.

We help you update your marked up contractor drawings to ‘as installed/built' conditions, up issue revision numbers and history tables. Outputs include PDF & DWG files, plots and CD copies.


2D to 3D CAD Conversion

With our CAD conversion service, you can now upgrade your existing paper or 2D CAD designs to 3D format. This enables the creation of files to assist with: cutting new tools (IGES or STEP); laser cutting profiles (DXF); and rendering and animation creation (STL or OBJ).

The traditional drawing office captured three dimensional forms by expressing them as a series of two dimensional projected views. The advent of 3D CAD and support manufacturing services means there are many advantages to gain by upgrading old 2D drawings.


With the use of products from a number of notable software design companies like TEKLA Structures, Auto Desk, AutoCAD, Solidworks, Microstation and Inventor, we are able to create drawings and provide images in both 2 and 3 dimensions helping you make your wonderful ideas become a reality.
