Our Service Capabilities

At SolidCAD, we specialize in a broad spectrum of services designed to enhance and tailor the Autodesk software ecosystem to meet the specific needs of your business.

Bridge Design Workflow: Embracing BrIM

We redefine bridge design through the introduction of Bridge Information Modeling (BrIM), a specialized adaptation of BIM that heralds a new era of efficiency and integration in bridge projects. This transformative workflow encapsulates the entire design process within a BIM context, promising enhanced efficiency, strict compliance, and unwavering data integrity.

Our strategy addresses the fragmented nature of traditional bridge design, where no single software could meet all needs, leading to cumbersome and manual processes. 

We prioritize efficiency, standardization, and productivity, supported by cutting-edge software and methodologies. From conceptualization to detailed analysis and documentation, our goal is to empower you with the precision and compliance needed to bring visionary projects to life, setting new standards in bridge design workflows.

By leveraging a suite of Autodesk tools and our proprietary integration techniques, we offer a comprehensive, parametric methodology that spans from initial concept to detailed design. This not only streamlines modifications and reduces complexity but also sets a new standard for bridge design workflows.

CAD Standards & Templates

At SolidCAD, we recognize the importance of precision, efficiency, and quality in design projects. Our CAD Standards and Design Templates service is aimed at transforming your design process, instilling consistency, enhancing productivity, and improving work quality. 

By adopting CAD standards and templates, you can achieve uniformity across projects, reduce the time and effort needed for new projects, improve design accuracy, and minimize errors.

Our approach to CAD standards and templates development is collaborative, aimed at reflecting your unique organizational practices and industry regulations. This involves assessing your current workflows, creating customized standards, assisting in their implementation, and providing comprehensive training for your team.
