CAD/Drafting Software



SOLIDWORKS® is a complete suite of 2D and 3D CAD modelling, simulation and analysis tools.

Covering all aspects of the product development process, SOLIDWORKS® integrates a range of mechanical CAD, design validation, product data management, design communication, and CAD productivity tools.

Amongst many industry-leading software packages we employ here at DOCAN, SOLIDWORKS® serves as our primary CAD software for projects requiring advanced engineering design & assessment.


Why we use SOLIDWORKS®

We assist clients through every phase of the product development lifecycle, from early-stage conceptualisation and detailed design. SOLIDWORKS® serves as a versatile platform that helps to streamline and improve all aspects of modelling, simulation, analysis and visualisation.

Whether the project demands a simple dimensioned 2D drawing or the development of a new technology, we can utilise the adaptable tools within SOLIDWORKS® to get the project from concept to completion.

Having access to industry-leading 2D and 3D CAD software with extensive capabilities is essential to us as a multidisciplinary engineering consultancy. From its versatile 3D design capabilities to integrated simulations and efficient data management, SOLIDWORKS significantly contributes to our ability to deliver transformative solutions to our clients.
