What are the Main fundamental Issues for 3d Designer/Drafter?
There are some very confusing fundamental issues encounter by designer/drafter during design process and It should be address properly during process itself. If a 3d designer/drafter create his drawings separately from the production regardless of the manufacturing process, incurred costly and time-consuming delays.
For example, if a drawing with incorrect dimensions or incorrect material properties given in the production, the drawing must be reworked with time consuming and the process flow is massively disrupted ,
Therefore, make sure that your design and manufacturing work on a common basis, when it comes to integrating the entire process chain of product development. There are lots of intelligent 3d design and drafting software available for producing accurate manufacturing drawings. We will talk about Solidworks today.
SOLIDWORKS provides you the answers to two important questions you should ask during the design process.
1. Is this product financially feasible?
The total cost of producing a product are influenced by a variety of factors, such as material and labor costs.This means that even a seemingly small change can have a large impact on the overall cost structure.
SOLIDWORKS Costing helps you ensure that no cost-related surprises to come to you when your model goes into production. It allows 3d designer/drafter, project managers and the Engineers to pursue new product development. It gives clear cost perspective with regard to compliance with the pre-calculated structures that can be monitored and impact of changes are transparent and clear.
Another advantage of SOLIDWORKS Costing is the ability to work with both original SOLIDWORKS models and drawings from other 3D CAD programs or neutral formats like IGES or STEP. The user can define different materials, make changes to drawings or relocate the place of manufacture. All changes to the model are displayed immediately in cost per piece.
2. Can this product be manufactured?
SOLIDWORKS supports 3d designer/drafter and mold makers with respect to the feasibility of your products by SOLIDWORKS Simulation .
In the development process, there are complicated shape models that changing regularly. The export process and repair of data having high probabilities of error and often contain inaccuracies.
For this reason, many mold makers tend to wait until the final design of a product is established and then only begin to develop final form. This costs valuable production time as well. Using SOLIDWORKS, mold makers can start early to make form. In addition, a correct form geometry including sketches audit and control of thickness and waste is ensured. For example, SOLIDWORKS Plastics can perform a detailed filling analysis and
determine the optimum position of the injection points also SOLIDWORKS Plastics can ensure proper filling pattern of the component and tracking where form weld lines and if necessary, correct the injection points.
3d designer/drafter can have complete product development process in SOLIDWORKS and ensure effective communication between design and production while the entire development process.
