Sheet Metal Design Detailing Services

Transform your sheet metal design concepts into final products with detailed shop drawings and models.

Sheet Metal Fabrication Detailing

Offsite fabrication and onsite assembly pose challenges due to design communication gaps, leading to defective fabrication and part’s functional issues. This adversely affects product lifespan, causing sheet metal contractors to incur higher project overheads for rework and replacement.

HitechDigital offers comprehensive sheet metal design services to facilitate seamless coordination between design and shop floor teams. Additionally, we provide CNC and laser-cut ready 3D sheet metal models using SolidWorks and Inventor that serve as a single source of truth to manage design iterations and control costs. Our teams deliver custom SolidWorks sheet metal drawings that align with your shop’s specific tooling capabilities.

Our engineers, certified by the Steel Door Institute (SDI), generate detailed sheet metal detail part drawings to ensure that products are fabricated precisely according to design specifications. We implement rigorous quality checks, validating the final deliverables against international standards such as ANSI, TEMA, IS, BS, etc., and adhere to Design for Manufacturing (DFM) guidelines. Our meticulous approach minimizes errors and effectively bridges the gap between design and manufacturing.
