3d model - fabrication

We can develop and provide you with drawings and even a 3D model of your design to aid with pre-approval.

You can view your design prior to fabrication, so you can gain an accurate visual representation of what it will look like before we fabricate it.

Fabrication - Engineering Certificate

We can also provide engineering certification and inspection of the final product.


Solidworks is an industry-leading CAE and CAD software. It is used across different professions and industries for its wide range of features and high functionality. Using the parametric design makes it an effective tool for designers and engineers. Providing a complete design-to-manufacturing process solution that allows innovation, visualization, communication, validation, cost, manufacture, inspection, composition, and management—all in one environment.


With our expertise in Solidworks, we can create detailed 3D models that allow you to visualize your project in a way that 2D drawings simply can’t match.

Features currently being implemented & developed at Ketek include:

  • Part modelling allows for fast, clear, precise, modelling of single parts.
  • Assembly modelling allows designers and engineers to run collision detection from within the design space.
  • The sheet metal feature allows for accurate design & fabrication of bent plate parts.
  • SOLIDWORKS Visualize is a robust and versatile tool for creating lifelike imagery out of your 3D CAD models. Using the latest in photorealistic rendering technology, you can produce lifelike images, animations and interactive virtual/augmented (extended) reality publications.
  • CAD Libraries (ToolBox)/ Reference Parts – Able to integrate models from manufacturers into designs, which means a perfect fitment/representation of bought-out items.
  • eDrawings is free software that lets you view and print eDrawings (eDRW, ePRT, eASM), native SolidWorks documents (sldprt, sldasm, slddrw) , DXF, and DWG format files. It also allows for a 3d view/markup of parts, assemblies & drawings, as well as ‘exploded views’ of assemblies.

Features that may be beneficial:

  • SOLIDWORKS Simulation allows you to test and analyze your designs against real-world conditions – at any point in your design phase – saving time and money on prototypes
  • SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation allows you to design high-performing products by quickly testing the effects of the flow of air, liquids, and heat – at any time during your design phase.
  • SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D lets you easily connect your 2D schematic to your 3D CAD model, syncing the two for easy collaboration.
  • SOLIDWORKS Routing feature is a design tool which builds paths of pipes, tubes or electrical assembly as required for your assembly, these tools meet the needs of an increasing number of products which use sensors, control systems and other systems requiring cabling and wiring.
