What your drawing archives
should look like.
We are the drawing specialists. Our hands-on approach starts in your back room.
Whether you want paper drawings converted to digital, one optimized MasterCAD drawing, or superior drawing management, we are your one-stop solution.
One Master Drawing
You have years of information from renovations, additions and modifications. Trap all of this information into one layered single source drawing. Save time, money, and frustration with a custom MasterCAD baseline drawing. We merge, edge-match and integrate all relevant sketches, notes, markups and drawings so you have ONE optimized file—problem solved.
COST SAVINGS DCM vs. in-house
Collect. Convert. Manage.
We take pride in our top-quality CAD conversions and affordable rates. A typical turnaround time for 1-5 “D-size” sheets is 3 days. If you convert documents in-house, this will cost you $42/hr x 3 days = $1008.
What do we charge?
$252 — You save $756 by choosing DCM!
No canned software. No bulk batch drawing conversions.
That approach is fast and cheap but low in quality and security.
Free up your resources and save money with ready-to-use drawings in just three days—Problem solved!
Who we are:
We like to get our hands dirty! Many drawing conversion companies throw software at a project as the only solution. But what about your back room shelves full of paper? This is where DCM makes a difference.
From start to finish we are a hands-on company. We come to you, audit your archives, identify duplicates and superceeded documents, carefully scan them to digital, and catalogue the critical information. We are proud of our whole-solution from start to delivery.

For over 27 years, we have organized and managed thousands of drawings in the industrial and engineering sectors (civil, electrical, mechanical and structural). In recent years DCM has grown into managing digital format for the military, architectural firms, utilities, medical facilities, power plants, courthouses, manufacturers, school boards, and many others.

From chaos to organized management
DCM gets you there by offering 4 services:
We go through your inventory of drawings, specifications, manuals, etc. We audit your facility drawings and documents and capture all data to digital. Good-bye yellowed rolls of paper and rubber bands!
Mechanical drawings, electrical drawings, architectural floor plans, maps, schematics, sketches, markups, tiffs, PDFs and raster files—even photographs!—scanned and converted to AutoCAD and Microstation platforms.
Once your inventory is organized and your documents converted, the next step is to optimize your files by layering everything into one master single-source CAD drawing.
Access your files with software that comes bundled with our iron-clad service and support. Click a button at your desk! You control your drawings with a user-friendly interface.
