What are Manufacturing Drawing?

Manufacturing Drawing are also known as Production Drawings or Working Drawings. A full set of Manufacturing Drawing include all the information required for production. No questions should be left unanswered. These drawings are split into to main categories.

1. Part/Component Drawings

These drawings detail the part itself that require manufacturing and are intended for the machinist. They also show the information required for the finishing processes.

The drawings should include the following information. (They should however not show more information that is required.) :

  • Material Specification

  • Linear Dimensions including Tolerances

  • Angular Dimensions including Tolerances

  • Geometric Tolerances

  • Surface Finish Type and Tolerances

2. Assembly Drawings.

Depending on the complexity, Assembly drawing are often structured into a Top Level Assembly and Sub-Assemblies. This is to give more clarity on the full product. Assembly drawings should include:

  • All Sub-Assemblies used within the assembly

  • All parts to be manufactured

  • All bought in parts including their specific part numbers, manufacturer or supplier

  • Fixings such as Bolts, Nuts, Washers etc.

  • Bill of materials (BOM) showing a full list of all parts

  • The drawings should be illustrated in a way to clearly show how the Product fits together. This should/could include several views (Plan, Top, Side, Isometric etc.) and Exploded Views

  • Additional information that might be required such as Weight, assembly instructions should also be included if required.

It is important that good quality drawings show all the information that is required, but no more than needed. An example is to many dimensions or to many views.

What Manufacturing Drawing Service do we offer?

We pride ourselves on the our drawings. Australian Design and Drafting’s team are qualified Draughtsmen. This is not to be confused with an industry problem, of untrained draughtsman creating drawings without a knowledge of drawing standards or manufacturing processes purely because the modern CAD Packages allow easy dimensioning.

We offer full Manufacturing Drawing packages which will include all the information required for manufacture. We are also able to appoint and liaise with manufacturers.

What information do we need to create Manufacturing Drawings?

We are able to work from:

  • Paper Drawings

  • Existing Parts

  • Concept Drawings/Images

  • Concept Parts

  • Existing CAD Drawings

How much do Manufacturing Drawing cost?

At Australian Design & Drafting’s we offer fixed price quotations should we have enough information to quantify the work. We understand that hourly rates do not give a full picture and no indication what the final cost would be.
