TRANSFORM YOUR CONCEPTS IDEA INTO CAD DRAWINGS
Apart from the initial research required, the concept stage is the first piece of design work. It gives a new design idea, form and function in a visual representation. The step involves an exploration of possible options typically. It ranges from different styles and methods of operation. It shows versions with varying forms of manufacturing that provides a range of different value designs. For example, if a range of products is planned, a budget, mid-value and a premium option could be designed. With all product design stages, the exact requirements and deliverables are tailored to the project being undertaken.
What are Concepts Drawings?
The first step of any new component or product is the concept drawing. The drawings are based on sketches, prototypes and design meetings. The drawings assist in explaining the new product or component to various customers.
Concept drawings are used to explore more technical aspects of design. It provides an initial response and possible solutions to problems, constraints and other opportunities. It includes services layout, structure, method of construction, solar paths and shading. It has prevailing wind, patterns of circulation, relationships between aspects of the site.
Concept Drawings are top-Level General Arrangement drawings. It includes the following information:
- Multiple Views (Plan, Side, Isometric etc.)
- Exploded if multiple components/assemblies
- In Colour if this assist.
- In 3D (it reviewed by free 3D viewing software such as eDrawings)
- Annotated to give a better explanation
- Overall Dimensions
HOW AUSTRALIAN DESIGN & DRAFTING CAN ASSIST WITH THE CONCEPTS DRAWINGS PHASE?
We create concept drawings using 3D CAD software such as Solidworks. The drawings can be in colour and show many details as required. We work closely with our client using information like Hand Sketches, Diagrams or existing prototypes.
On occasion, the idea may be planned out and a form selectively. Additionally, the design budget includes the restricted meaning that only a single concept requires to move the project onto the next stage. However, it always recommended exploring any possible design options that offer product design ideas and progress with the best possible design.
Each concept displayed visually stimulate presentation with associated information and instructional annotations. It’s used to evaluate the designs against each other and for building a crowdfunding campaign. The sole purpose of a concept design is to establish the product’s form and function to start subsequent stages of engineering the product or creating a prototype.
A concept is not something ready for manufacture or prototyping. It offers efficient preparation and engineer comes with all concept design options for prototyping as those concepts not chosen to be wasted. Furthermore, if any changes are required, then the engineering work may need to be redone. Therefore, the design process is broken down to be the most time-efficient and cost-effective to ensure the client remains in control and dictates the project requirements with ease.
