Parametric 3D CAD and automation reduced design iterations by 50% and engineering lead time by 30% for a UK-based custom balcony manufacturer

Parametric 3D CAD and automation reduced design iterations by 50% and engineering lead time by 30% for a UK-based custom balcony manufacturer Banner

Client Profile

The client is UK-based manufacturer and installer of custom balcony systems of sheet metal conforming to country-specific standards.

Business Need.

The client used AutoCAD to generate 2D drawings and DXF files for CNC machines to cut sheet metal parts for manufacturing balconies. 2D workflows increased the probability of errors and design engineers met with collisions between balcony parts. Rectifying these errors at later stages was heavy on losses so they wanted to switch over to 3D CAD.

They were looking for a partner with extensive experience in 3D CAD modeling, who could manage high and fluctuating workload and meet delivery timelines.

Challenges.

Solution.

All balcony designs were migrated to Autodesk Inventor and detailed 3D CAD models were prepared using top-down approach. Also, iLogic with macros was used to automate repetitive tasks and reduce delivery time.

Approach.

The client provided GA drawings of balconies and architectural layout of the installation site with an overall plan, elevation and side views in DWG format.

Defining initial scope of work and design rules:

Developing parametric models:

Quality check and shipping deliverables to the client:

Value addition and expanding scope of work:

Deliverables:

Business Impact.

Increased daily productivity from one balcony installation to 40+ balcony installations.
Eliminated 50% design iterations.
Reduced design and manufacturing TAT by 30%.
Reduced engineering lead time by 50%.
