CAD/CAM Drafting

At Rockpress, we recognise the importance of absolute precision and clarity to meet your project’s exact specifications.

We have several full-time CAD/CAM Programmers in our Drafting office who can translate your ideas into a high quality finished product. Each Programmer is trade-qualified and trained in our workshop so they can add their fabrication experience and metal fabrication expertise to your job.

Our draftsmen aide in design only but can put you in touch with the right people to ensure your project meets all the relevant building & engineering codes.  Once the design has been certified Rockpress will review the criteria and specifications to get the best results for your project, including the most cost-effective approach.

Our drafting expertise has helped customers achieve premium steel manufacture solutions, product drafting efficiencies, and cost-effective results across:

  • Trade product applications
  • Industrial segments
  • Architectural products, both internal and external applications

If you don’t have detailed specifications, a sample or a rough sketch is sufficient to enable our staff to develop and draw the product to your expectations.

When you provide your own specification drawings, we’ll still produce a set of workshop drawings as Machine files for our tradespeople and equipment to interpret – enabling us to work to high tolerance levels.

We ensure all final specification drawings are approved by you before we start fabricating.

Whether your product is simple or complex, Rockpress is fully equipped to deliver a result that is precisely to you requirements.
