Legacy Data Migration(LDM) is a process of translating legacy data, blueprints and images to parametric digital models (3D) and drawings (2D), to aid the Re-Engineering of the parts to the Client’s current requirements. The inputs can be in the form of scanned image, PDF, Paper document or a CAD file. The deliverables are in the form of 3D models and 2D drawings.
Brief about Legacy Data Migration (LDM):
Until the invention of state-of-the-art CAD systems, converting any existing engineering drawing into handy presentations was truly a herculean task for mechanical product designers and engineers. However, with the introduction of highly advanced and interactive CAD software, today, converting large amount of scanned images into easy-to-understand and realistic 3D intuitive models has become easier. For any organization with an extensive database of CAD data the need for CAD migration (the process of making that data compatible with other CAD platforms), will eventually arise.
CAD migration not just assists you retrieve the right data on your fingertips, but also simplifies the entire product development process and gets you rid of unnecessary costs and wastage of vital resources.
How does CAD migration help mechanical engineering projects:
The advantages of CAD migration are by and large multifold. It helps an organization keep its vendors and dealers updated with the latest design improvisations. And as for the internal teams working on a given project, CAD migration is certainly the most efficient way to keep them updated with seamless flow of technical information and resources. It helps engineering and product-design teams to efficiently manage even the most complicated product development that involves numerous design configurations.
CAD migration also allows the translation of all existing legacy data into any format that suits the priorities and requirements of product engineering team. In addition, such an adequate translation or migration of legacy data makes it accessible for the long term. It also brings advanced industry leading technologies to the product development team, thereby enabling them to roll out ideal solutions for any obstacles faced during the design and manufacturing process, timely and efficiently.
Apart from that, most of the times you are forced to retain expensive pieces of hardware and/or software, which are no longer backed by their vendors, just to access your old data, which is by no means a cost-effective business strategy. Therefore, embracing an automated and tailored legacy CAD migration strategy is always a win-win situation for our both business, products and also to company pocket.
Other Notable Benefits of CAD Migration Include:
- It prevents legacy data from piling up in unusable formats
- It automatically keeps a track of the whole legacy data migration project
- It helps identify and hence rectify poor quality data
- 2D to 3D CAD Conversion – A 2D drawing can be easily converted to 3D model
- It encourages the use of automation processes and subsequently reduces the scope for manual intervention
Our work & capabilities:

Benefits to the Clients:
- A cumulative cost savings of 60-70% as against the costs of conducting data transformation in-house
- Take-it-for-granted data consistency and quality meet your specifications
- The re-usability in both up and downstream applications, making faster time-to-market and minimized costs
- Amplified time, especially for design team to focus more on core tasks
The process of Legacy CAD database migration is not really an automated process. The models need to be developed right from scratch or rebuilt incorporating design intent step by step. Now, you have an opportunity to get this data converted to your CAD platform of choice at a price you cannot just afford, but also and it is practical.
