Design and Drafting

Western Drilling Tools uses state of the art computer-aided design and engineering software to draft and design all of our internal products. Our engineering and design software, together with the several engineering technologists, engineers in training and drafts people can create the technical product drawings you require. Our CAD software also allows us to test products in a 3D environment before we proceed with a prototype or batch machining.


The design process at Western Drilling Tools often starts with hand sketches on white paper. The sketches are agreed upon at which time they are modeled in 3D through the use of computer-aided design software. Modeling and testing are the next steps. Once a design is finalized, manufacturing drawings are produced by our drafts people and the drawings are sent to the machine shop floor for manufacturing.
