Design Automation: Why Furniture Manufacturers should adopt it? 

When furniture manufacturers embrace design automation, they are indirectly embracing growth along the way. Once design automation is in place with the manufacturer, engineering lead time consumed otherwise is shortened. The product configurator and logical set of rules will manage the processes of generating CAD drawings for assembly and fabrications including details about stamping, bending, rolling etc.

CAD Functionalities;Maximum Utility for Product Designing | Engineering Design | Scoop.it

We might not realize that with gradual CAD evolution, we have come a long way from 2D drawings to 3D models and 3D PDF, and finally today at 3D printing. We, product design engineers, today, have created fully functional products that were once impossible designs and all this is possible because of a gradual evolution of CAD functionalities as it happened over the years.

3 Tips for Converting PDF to CAD Like a pro  | Engineering Design | Scoop.it

PDFs have several drawbacks too. The non-editable format makes it difficult for the designers to use the PDF more than once. It makes the designer’s job challenging and time consuming even when minor design changes are to be made. However, designers can opt for PDF to CAD conversion, to pace up their work, reduce rework and focus more on leveraging their core competencies.

Design for Manufacturing: Guidelines for Sheet Metal Fabrication 

Design for Manufacturing: Guidelines for Sheet Metal Fabrication  | Engineering Design | Scoop.it
Perfect sheetmetal-fabrication designs—those that avoid engineering change orders (ECOs)—evolve only when designers take care to consider the capabilities of the equipment on the shop floor. For example, a designer may assume that hole and shaft diameter should match, thinking that a 50-mm-dia. shaft should fit into a 50-mm-dia. hole punched into a sheet metal cover.

Master Sheet Metal Fabrication; Understand Theory of Designing Process  | Engineering Design | Scoop.it

Sheet metal fabrication process is not like any other fabrication. Components like chassis are made from a single sheet with uniform thickness, and so final CAD designs and fabrication drafts need to be close to design intent. Some fundamental rules and definitions turn out to be a great savior during designs, and in some cases, sole reasons to success, are often overlooked.

To sum it all up, although we have always a concept of drawings when it comes to fabrication we got to accept the fact that 3D models do the exact job in a better manner. Especially when it is the case of multi-component assembly, it becomes inevitable to have a model of the part to be manufactured.
