Computer Aided Design - From Concept to Completion

At Yorkshire CAD Services, we specialise in industrial engineering design and offer a complete CAD service to support your business or project. With many years of practical experience in both hydraulic and general engineering including fabrication, sheet metalwork, prototyping, reverse engineering, project management, running turning/milling machine shops as well as working with a multitude of suppliers and other engineers, we can assist with any project.

Using the latest Solidworks Premiumâ„¢ CAD software, we offer a complete service for any type of product design. We are used to working on complex projects and pride ourselves on our attention to detail and thoroughness. Our extensive understanding of materials, machining processes, welding, paint finishes and our passion for what we do means we can design your products to the highest standards ensuring they are fit for purpose. We are used to working to general engineering standards such as BS and ISO as well as customer specifications.

Specialists in Hydraulic Engineering Design

Our many years of experience in the hydraulics industry covers every aspect of the design chain. From complete systems including hydraulic circuit design, hydraulic power units, pipework  runs, hydraulic cylinders and rotary actuators we can offer you a complete service.

We can design products suitable for any industry and can even provide detailed calculation packages for submitting to CAT3 checkers or third-party inspectors including ABS, DNV and Lloyds Register. We do detailed rod buckling and burst calculations on all our cylinder designs.

We have worked on projects covering many sectors including military, nuclear, civil engineering, water treatment, Formula One, offshore marine, subsea, chemical and food industries. We are happy to sign Non-Disclosure Agreements for those projects that require your information keeping private to you. We see ourselves as a partner, not just a supplier.

Value Added Services

In addition to our engineering design experience, we also offer many additional services to bring added value to our portfolio including creating product documentation, operation and maintenance manuals, photo realistic 3D renders, general graphic design and photography services to cover all areas of your project.

Featured CAD Services:

General Engineering

GA and detail drawings including new or replacement parts, geared products, fabrications, sheet metalwork, grinding, turning, milling, plasma/laser/waterjet cutting, welding and reverse engineering. Specialist surface finishing and coatings including anodising, chrome/nickel plating as well as highway/marine grade paint finishes.

Exploded Diagrams

Do you need detailed exploded diagrams to use in your product documentation? We can provide both solid and sectional diagrams with part identification to suit your requirements.


From a simple box section frame to a complete finished product made of hundreds of parts, our in-depth understanding of materials, welding, structural integrity and the need for ease of assembly means we can offer a full fabrication design service.

2D to 3D Remastering

Do you have old paper drawings that are heavily worn and almost unreadable? Let us update them to fresh digital versions and protect your designs and allow for easier revisions.


We offer a full range of additional support services including creating product documentation, presentations and graphics. We will also help you to maintain your product revisions and updates.

Sheet Metalwork / Laser Cutting

From simple parts to complex folded designs we offer a full CAD service for sheet metal work. With our detailed knowledge of forming/folding and welding we can ensure your design fits together perfectly.

3D Rendering / CGI 

We offer photo realistic 3D rendering for you to use in your project documentation, promotional material or website. We can even paint your designs and change materials to give real world appearances without the expense of making a new item.

Bespoke Products

We have been involved with designing specialised items ranging from depth compensators to deep sea winches, clutch adapter plates to custom specialised testing equipment, machinery that works in the freezing cold of Antarctica to the heat of Dubai. We are always happy to work on any project whether large or small.

Hydraulic Design

We can fully design welded (CETOP RP 58H), Tie Rod (ISO6020) and Bolted (ISO6022) construction hydraulic Cylinders as well as custom units. We also design power units, manifolds, rack and pinion rotary actuators, circuit diagrams, oil/water intensifiers, rotary distributors, pipework and much more.
