CAD Conversion of Retail Furniture Designs from Concept to Manufacturing-Ready Drawings for a Display Manufacturer
Leading display furniture manufacturer
Industry: Retail Furniture manufacturing
Engineers at Hitech converted the handmade conceptual sketches into 3D models and 2D manufacturing drafts to aid production of the merchandise, for a manufacturer with 25+ years of experience offering end-to-end custom product design and manufacturing solutions.
Address the rising market demand of sustainable furniture products with versatility in designs of display furniture.
Manage custom hybrid programs and serve end-to-end custom designs for the customers.
Assemble and disassemble products onsite for easy transit and lower risk of damage during transit.
Introduce innovative furniture designs for display to attract larger mass and new customers.
Agile markets add to the need of display product design customization to entice more customers, but makes manufacturers’ job more critical.
Restricted space occupancy and limited availability of floor space demands more compact yet eye pleasing furniture pieces.
Accelerate manufacturing with minimum ECOs in case of custom retail furniture designs prone to design change orders.
Generate comprehensive manufacturing drawings in 2D CAD based on original concept sketches to maintain design intent & adopt regional and/or international standards.
Project team automated the modeling process using a CAD configurator for configurable geometrical parameters to accelerate the process.
Configurator eliminated the challenge of design data access which reduced the lead times to 4-5 days and send the designs to shop floor same day the order is placed.
Quick and accurate BOQs, pricing quotes and great customer experience with configurator brought faster response to inquiries from manufacturer end.
Eliminating error prone design parameters that consume time or the design parameters that cannot be manufactured by popup warnings and instructions in the configurator.
Project engineers collaborated with the client to understand their requirements for drawings and materials used such as wood, acrylic or sheet metal to calculate the exact geometry based on space available and intended use.
Dedicated project team of three experts prepared 3D models and rendered images in SolidWorks for approvals and RFIs.
From feedback and information, 2D manufacturing drawings with BOMs were generated suitable to client’s manufacturing facility.
Prepared assembly drawings with exploded isometric views to facilitate site assembly option at retail stores which can be manufactured remotely and are easy to handle.
Entire process of transforming conceptual sketches to assembly models and manufacturing drafts was completed in 72 hours.
Hitech engineers helped standardizing the CAD library for client for future use of the models.
Manufacturer was able to reduce the overhead cost and time of manufacturing by up to 50%.
The superlative quality of drawings adhering to client specific design standards and made with ‘attention to details’ avoided any change orders which resulted in quick turnaround times and accelerate manufacturing.
Client was empowered with one stop solutions by Hitech’s design support from concept inception through manufacturing drawings development which resulted in seamless manufacturing at their shop floor and fine product design finishes.
Value added design support solutions for product development to build high performance, competitive products.
Excellent project management skills, scalable execution capabilities, and deep domain expertise.
State-of-the-art modeling capabilities to restore dated design data, explore design alternatives, and revamp existing designs.
ISO 27001:2005: Information Security Management System (ISMS) governed data / information security.
