To ensure a successful product maufacturing process, we must evaluate early on which is the most appropriate manufacturing process, material choice, surface finish and supplier.
Once the production CAD has been created and signed off, we offer a “hands on” or “hands off” approach. If you have experienced this process before and already have manufacturing routes or in-house facilities, we can supply all the data and drawings needed. If not, we are happy to help, whether manufacturing the parts ourselves or introducing you to certain manufacturing experts or project managing your product through the production process. We ensure the quality expectation of you and your client is met at every stage.
Another output from our 3D production CAD is to produce full size or scaled 2D CAD drawings. These detailed drawings provide critical information for manufacture, including dimensions, material selection, finishes and tolerances. Sometimes our clients like to review 2D elevations of their product at the development stage to analyse certain design features.
Many manufacturers now read and prefer to receive 3D IGES CAD files, however there are still a few manufactures who prefer these 2D CAD drawings.
