Our CAD Drafting Service adds compliant Manufacturing Drawing
What are Manufacturing Drawings?
- 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:
Linear Dimensions including Tolerances
Angular Dimensions including 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:
Existing CAD Drawings
