CAD at Môn3d
Here at Mon3d We have a full licence of Solidworks Premium along with an expert user for all your product design needs. Solidworks is an industry leading design CAD package and used within many industries as standard. With this and our general 3d modelling expertise, there is not much we cannot draw up.
What We Offer
We can provide you with a digital 3d modelling service for all your visualisation needs. We can create high quality accurate models from a variety of sources. Concept drawings, plans, laser scan data, photography and/or film or even a few scribbles on paper from an idea you may have. We can bring it to life as stills or animation.
Computer aided design used to be a very expensive process and limited to large companies. Môn3d is a licenced user of Solidworks Premium edition and capable of producing sophisticated 3d model that can be used to take your product design to the next level. We can use our software to test your products and iron out any problems prior to the prototype stage. And then use our models to take it to 3d print.
Below are 4 images, first is an original and authentic old military cap badge, digitally scanned and then 3d metal printed in brass. This took a couple of days to process and a few weeks to get the metal 3d print, which has to be outsourced. All our ‘metal’ printing is outsourced.
Our Work Flow
Imagery or Sketches
Starting with images, concepts and design ideas can be sketched out to help the design process move on to the 3d modelling or CAD work
3d Models/CAD Design
CAD design and or 3d modelling from the drawings is the next step. From the models its far easier to see where there may be possible improvements made or simply making sure the ideas work as a structure.
When evrything is worked out digitally, this is where we can take it into the physical world to get a true handle on the object in question, if its not to large, We can print it out and create a physical 3d model.

We are always happy to chat about a project, and always open to working with outr clients. No project is ever the same. The processes may be similar, but end results vary greatly.
Being open and honest, we feel, is always the best way forward and we dont charge for our time over the phone, so dont feel intimidated. If you have an idea, we can help, if you need a part, we can help, A quick call can put you on the right path.
What kind of clients do you work with?
Our clients range from professional makers to someoen who just needs a part, otherwise unavailable. An example is a simple nylon washer, that the client needed sooner than he could order one in.
What is your turn around time?
This ranges depending on the project, but can be as little as a day, from drawing something up to 3d printing.
Does it cost a lot.
