CAD drafting is the creation of 2D detailed drawings showing precise dimensions for individual manufactured parts, or instructions for building an assembly of parts into a final product. It may also include the creation of 3D virtual models of the part from which the 2D drawing is made.
Working with Triumph Engineering Group gives your company access to:
- The latest CAD drafting software
- A broad and deep level of knowledge and experience
- Improved communications with your suppliers
- Drafters trained to employ ASME Y14.5 standards
- Resources to quickly expand your work force to meet short term goals
- Drawings available in all popular electronic formats
Triumph Engineering Group tailors its CAD drafting services to ensure the output meets expectations. These services can be initiated as part of a reverse engineering project, to update existing documentation to meet current standards, or to enhance the scope of existing drawings, to name just a few.
CAD Drafting Process:
Triumph’s drafting process involves:
- Understanding how the part will be made
- Understanding the critical dimensions, tolerances, materials, and finishes for the part
- Knowing how the drawing will be used by the recipient
- Organizing the drawing in a logical manner
- Ensuring that all necessary information needed to make the part is called out
- Transmitting the documentation in a format that is useable by the recipient
Triumph’s 2D CAD drafting service is the creation of manufacturing drawings showing part dimensions and tolerances, or instructions for assembling a group of parts identified in a bill of material. The 3D CAD service creates virtual models of parts and assemblies that can be used as the precursor to the 2D drawing, or to communicate directly with rapid prototyping services, mold makers, and machine shops. The drafter must choose the most clear, accurate, and effective way to display the information to communicate with the intended audience. The drawings convey all the necessary manufacturing information for the products including:
- Tolerances of size, location, and form
- Surface roughness
- Finishes such as painting, plating, or chemical coatings
- Bills of material for assemblies
The drawings are the final line of communication to the manufacturer and must be clear, and accurate to prevent misinterpretation, and confusion. Triumph Engineering Group follows the drafting guidelines set forth by the ASME Y14 Series of standards.
