Working from a penciled napkin idea to a working prototype, we create detailed, 3 dimensional drawings with high precision, ready for manufacturing, providing unparalleled levels of 3D Design and computer aided drafting services.

How 3D Drawings Increase Efficiency:

3 dimensional drawings allow for a richer interaction between the designer and the model, stimulating better design ideas through enriched visualization capabilities. 3D models give designers the freedom to explore conceptual and hypothetical design alterations. Manipulating a design on a virtual model is more cost effective as opposed to doing it post production.  3D drawings will not only enrich your design, but also reduce the likelihood of wasting time and money on a faulty product.

Once your product is created in a 3D cad drawing, a wide variety of 3rd party products can be utilized such as stress analysis, animation, conceptual rendering, CNC tool paths, for a more comprehensive analysis.

 

  Why Outsource?

 Modeling and design representation tools require an individual with a large library of knowledge relating to the tools and processes of the software. Companies can often have an entire division of technical individuals whose sole purpose is to model designs. By using a third party to efficiently and correctly represent the designs in both 2D and 3D allows the development team to focus on constraints and specifications

How We Do It Better:

The 3D CAD modeling platforms we support will link themselves to a three dimensional assembly and to a two dimensional drawing files, so once you make a change anywhere in the design process, all of the linked files will update automatically. This is a tremendous benefit in the reduction of failure rate for any design process. This unique feature also allows us to save our customers time and money.  By integrating the files, we eliminate the need to perform menial tasks making the overall design process more efficient

DID YOU KNOW?

Cutting back on prototyping

Building and testing physical prototypes an expensive time-consuming bottleneck in traditional product development processes is one area that manufacturers are critically examining to reduce overall design costs and speed time to market.

When designing products in 2D actual physical prototypes must be built to test for structural integrity detect whether parts will collide with one another and ensure that components all have adequate clearance. By creating virtual assemblies of parts in 3D CAD solid modeling systems engineers can quickly assess and resolve fit and tolerance issues using built-in interference checking and collision detection functions that are offered in most solid modelers.

Simulation and analysis tools can also significantly cut down on a manufacturer's need to create physical prototypes.

While physical tests are often still required for product certification simulation is a more cost-effective and repeatable option. The ability of engineers to perform multiple "what if" iterations using simulation tools results in better products and reduced testing requirements.

With these types of software which include tolerance analysis finite-element analysis (FEA) computation fluid dynamics (CFD) and kinematics/dynamics software designers can test the structural integrity thermal and flow characteristics and physical motion of new products while the designs still reside in digital form.

With 3D CAD systems engineers can perform simulations directly on their 3D CAD geometry using tools integrated with their CAD software. Being able to analyze and test designs while they still reside in the computer not only saves on prototyping costs but also provides engineers with a way to quickly iterate and optimize designs without worrying about delaying production schedules.

Once the simulations are completed the results can be shared with supply chain partners internal design team members or customers as PDF files without valuable native data being shared. In this manner engineers can quickly obtain feedback regarding changes made to the design due to simulation results incorporate those suggestions back into the design and then rerun the simulation to ascertain the impact of those changes.

Despite the realistic renderings that can be created by 3D CAD systems many design intangibles simply cannot be accurately conveyed through digital representations.Physical models of designs can go further in answering questions such as: How do the pieces fit together? How will it be used? Does it work the way it is supposed to? Does it have the right feel? As a result many companies rely on the use of rapid prototyping (RP) machines.

Using rapid prototypes can help manufacturers avoid mistakes down the line by identifying problems that are too difficult to see on-screen but are obvious when examining a physical part. Solid modeling systems are capable of creating products of almost any shape and size but these products might not be cost-effective to manufacture.

RP parts force engineers to think through the manufacturing steps and can result in design changes that make the final part easier and less costly to build.
