It's a 3D world.  Tempest Tool & Machine has utilized 3D CAD since 1991, moving on to solid modeling in 2000.  




Tempest Tool & Machine, Inc., moved from 3D wireframe and surface modeling to Solidworks parametric solid modeling in 2000.  Solidworks provides us with excellent CAD computing power with unexpected ease of use.  Plus, Solidworks' powerful import/export tools allow us to interact with nearly every 3D solid CAD software on the market.






eDrawings is a FREE CAD viewer from Solidworks.  We cannot recommend this enough.  eDrawings gives you the ability to see your designs the way we do.  Upon completion of a design, we will send you an eDrawing

export from Solidworks.  Upon opening in eDrawings free viewer, you can evaluate the 3D solid CAD model as if you are in Solidworks.  You can roll the model, hide components, measure distances, and print hard copies for presentations.  eDrawings does not allow you to modify the model.  It is a viewer only.  But, it provides the clearest possible presentation of a 3D model possible without purchasing 3D solid modeling software.  eDrawings is also available in purchased versions that add markup abilities and other valuable tools.  eDrawings free viewer is also available for Android or IOS so you can take it on the road with you!
