Case Study – Leading Automotive manufacturer increased productivty by 30% with Vector automation

A renowned German automotive manufacturer known for consistently pushing the boundaries of automotive engineering and design has built a reputation for producing exceptional vehicles that embody elegance, cutting-edge technology, and uncompromising quality. 

As a global leader in the automotive industry, the German automotive manufacturer continues to redefine luxury mobility, delivering driving experiences that are synonymous with sophistication and excellence. In order to effectively communicate design concepts, simplify complex information, and facilitate collaboration throughout the design & manufacturing process, the manufacturer needs an AI-powered automation solution to convert Computer-Aided Design (CAD) files and JT format files to illustration files.

Leading Automotive manufacturer increased
productivty by 30% with Vector automation


The automobile manufacturer needs to convert huge volumes of CAD/JT files to illustration files. Since more than 70% of the process relied on human resources, the manufacturer was not able to effectively collaborate and communicate design concepts throughout the design & manufacturing process.


AI system with advanced NLP & computer vision technology was deployed to automate the CAD/JT file to illustration file conversion process. The system automatically traces the CAD file images and converts them into accurate illustration vector images.


70% of the process was automated. Because of the high- quality illustration vector images, the team can better communicate complex design concepts, and the overall productivity increased by 30%.

Generally, the manual conversion of the CAD/JT format file includes several steps and it is a laborious task. The person has to import the CAD file and has to do the view adjustments to achieve the desired perspective or angle for the illustration and also to determine the most visually appealing representation of the design.

Once the view is fixed, then comes the Wireframe conversion. This is actually a simplification process in which all the unnecessary details are removed and helps us focus on the major design elements and the underlying structure. After the design has been simplified with the wireframe, the line-tracing process starts in which curves, angles, and proportions can be seen accurately. Over the line diagram, the detailing of shadows, textures, etc., is done to refine the vector image and then the file is converted to an illustration file that can be used to collaborate easily.

Nearly 70% of the above-mentioned process is done manually and it results in-

  • More time and resource consumption
  • Poor file management & tracing the original files becomes difficult
  • Difficult to maintain accuracy & quality
  • Manually tracing illustrations consumes more time & effort

Deploy an AI solution to automate the process of CAD/JT file conversion to illustration with high precision.

RecoSense AI solution uses the best-in-class NLP engine and computer vision to extract precise information from an image and process/analyze it as per the requirement. The AI model is trained with a vast amount of datasets to accurately identify the patterns in a lesser time frame and use deep learning to extract the features from the image without any error. 

In the CAD to the illustration conversion process, the AI system automatically identifies the curves, angles, lines, etc., and uses machine learning to convert the extracted information into accurate vector image representation.

The AI system can pick up even minor cut-outs, dots, and textures properly so that the final vector image has higher accuracy and all the details required for the team to collaborate will be extracted.

By deploying the AI automation solution, the Leading German automotive manufacturer can convert the CAD/JT files quickly with less human intervention. The RecoSense AI system helped the manufacturer to achieve-

  • Improved quality of illustrations
  • Reduce manual efforts by 70%
  • Increase in throughput by 30%
  • Increased reusability of vector images

Apart from making the process quicker and more accurate with fewer human resources, there are multiple benefits of the AI automation system for CAD to illustration file conversion.

Scalability: The AI system can handle large volumes of CAD files efficiently, making them highly scalable. Whether converting a single file or processing a batch of files, AI can handle the workload with ease, ensuring consistent results across all conversions.

Centralized Data: All the information extracted from the files are stored in the centralized system so that team members across the company can access the information quickly. RecoSense AI solutions can correlate the information and create a knowledge graph which will help the team members to have better insight into the product. 

Workflow Integration: The AI system can be integrated into existing CAD software or illustration tools, streamlining the workflow and making the conversion process seamless. This integration allows for a more efficient and integrated design process, saving time and effort in switching between different software applications.

Enhanced Creativity: Since the initial conversion process is taken care of by AI, the designers can focus on adding their own artistic touches, experimenting with styles, and pushing the boundaries of creativity. Leveraging AI for CAD to illustration file conversion brings numerous benefits to businesses. The time efficiency, consistency, and accuracy provided by AI models streamline the conversion process, reducing manual labor and ensuring reliable results.  Embracing AI for CAD to illustration conversion will empower businesses to increase productivity, maintain quality, and drive innovation in the competitive landscape.
