Our CAD Drafting Service adds compliant Manufacturing Drawing
What are Manufacturing Drawings?
Manufacturing Drawing knew as Production Drawings or Working Drawings. It's a complete set of manufacturing drawings that includes all the information required for production. No questions are left unanswered. We use best technical drawing with building design and drafting services which help us pay attention to detail.
People often get confused between engineering drawings and manufacturing drawings. Most of the time, there are departments for each within a company that require a different set of skills. Although there is a difference between them, they go hand in hand and work together for the result. However, the distinction becomes lost in smaller companies since one or a few people handle engineering and Manufacturing together.
Manufacturing drawings are self-explanatory. They come with detailed specifications of the product. Depending on the production quantities, manufacturer, and other factors, the manufacturer determines the product's method. The manufacturing drawings offer a plethora of information for the manufacturer. This information includes:
- Material type
- Full dimensions
- Welding information
- Surface/cosmetic finish
The information on a manufacturing drawing sets the stage for how the shop floor makes the part. It's a kind of medium used to communicate how to fabricate the part based upon the requirements. It acts as a foundation of how the Manufacturing will be planned and made based on the print's detailed information.
These drawings are split into main categories.
1. Part/Component Drawings
In this category, drawings detail parts themselves that require Manufacturing and intend for the machinist. They show the information needed for the finishing processes. The drawings include the following information:
- 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 is often structured into a top-level assembly and sub-assemblies. It gives more clarity on the whole product. Assembly drawings include:
- All Sub-Assemblies used within the assembly.
- All bought in parts, including specific part numbers, manufacturer or supplier.
- All parts to be manufactured.
- Fixings such as Bolts, Nuts, Washers etc.
- Bill of materials (BOM) showing a complete list of all parts
- The drawings clearly show how the product fits together. It includes several views like a plan, top, side, isometric etc., and other exploded views.
- Additional information like weight, assembly instructions are included if required.
Good quality drawings must show all the information that is required, but no more than needed. An example is too many dimensions or too many views.
What Manufacturing Drawing Service do we offer?
We pride ourselves on the drawings. Australian Design and Drafting's team qualify Draughtsmen. It confuses with an industry problem of untrained draughtsman creating drawings without knowledge of drawing standards or manufacturing processes because modern CAD Packages allow easy dimensioning.
We offer complete Manufacturing Drawing packages, which includes the information required for manufacture. We liaise with manufacturers.
What information do we require to create Manufacturing Drawings?
We can work from:
- Paper Drawings
- Existing Parts
- Concept Drawings/Images
- Concept Parts
- Existing CAD Drawings
How much does Manufacturing Drawing cost?
At Australian Design & Drafting's, we offer fixed quotations that have enough information to quantify the work. We understand that hourly rates do not give a complete picture and no indication of the final cost.
Drafting Design Tools and Software
Our Expert Engineers & Drafters are versatile enough to use any software where the process might require. We successfully managed Drafting and Design projects that involve software like AutoCAD, ArchiCAD, Solidworks, Revit Architecture, Architectural Desktop, Microstation, and 3D Studio Max.
