There are a lot of reasons why you might need CATIA drafting PDFs. Maybe you’re making 2D cuts of your 3D model and you’re sending them out for manufacturing. Alternatively, you could be putting together architectural or civil builds. Whatever the case may be, you should start by considering outsourcing.
In this quick guide, we’ll introduce 6 benefits of outsourcing CATIA V5 drafting PDFs. As you’ll see, outsourcing is a great way to save time and money on your next project.
6 Benefits of Outsourcing CATIA V5 Drafting PDFs
Now, let’s talk about some benefits you’ll experience when you choose CAD/CAM Services for your CATIA V5 drafting PDFs.
Get Drawings Faster
The bottom line is that you’ll get your drawings faster when you outsource the work. At CAD/CAM Services, we have engineers that work 24/7 to get your drawings back to you as soon as possible. It’s possible to get CATIA V5 drafting PDFs within 24 hours of signing a contract with us.
It’s really that easy. Oftentimes, creating a drafting PDF takes as long as creating the 3D model of the part. The difference is that we can do both options much faster thanks to our talent pool.
Rely on Experts
There’s something to be said about master draftsmen. An expert draftsman knows shortcuts, the right commands to use, and how to organize the drawing perfectly.
The result? You get CAD Perfect drawings every time.
Using entry-level engineers is fine, but their drawings will fall short. When you choose an outsource engineering team, make sure they have a lot of experience on their staff. This will ensure you get the best results.
Free Up Your Engineering Talent
Your engineers probably have a thousand different things they could be doing right now. To have them spend their effort putting together drafting PDFs might not make sense.
This is where outsourcing comes in handy. We’ve worked with customers who have full engineering teams, but they can’t find the time or manpower to put together a drafting package.
Allow our team to handle your drafting while you tackle the bigger problems. We are able to do small 2D drawings, large drawing packages, and full 3D digital twins and factory layouts. How much time would that free up for your team of engineers?
Avoid Simple Drafting Errors
A very common issue with putting together 2D drafting PDFs on CATIA V5 is making simple mistakes. It could be something as simple as forgetting a period, misclicking a line, or adding a note that isn’t precise enough.
Any and all of these issues can lead to troubles in the machine shop. The machinist might misunderstand what you’re saying and create the wrong part. Alternatively, they might get too confused and will have to call you before continuing.
In either case, you’re wasting time and money. When an outsourced team handles your drafting PDFs, you can avoid these issues. Again, this comes with experience. When you have an expert draftsman putting together your drawings, you don’t have to worry about little issues like this.
Get Professional-Grade Drawings
Any machinist can spot the difference between an entry-level and an expert-level drawing. When you send your drawings out for a quote, the machine shop might change their quote depending on how messy and illegible the drawing is. After all, it’s going to take them more time to work through the drawing to understand it, and time is money.
With professional-grade drawings, you’re going to impress the machine shop, you might get better quotes, and you’ll build a better relationship.
This can be done by either spending thousands of hours practicing your drafting skills or by outsourcing the work. We know which option we would suggest (hint, it’s outsourcing).
Don’t Worry About the Learning Curve
Even though CATIA V5 is great at 2D CAD, there’s a steep learning curve. It’s not possible to sit at the computer and churn out a perfect drafting PDF on your first try. It could take hundreds of tries before your PDF is perfect. Do you want to waste all that time and energy?
Instead, you can turn to people who have already gone through the learning curve. Namely, you can turn to our pros at CAD/CAM Services. Our team puts together expert-level PDFs every time they sit at the computer.
You should outsource your CATIA V5 drafting PDF project if you want to save time, avoid headaches, and ultimately save money. Outsourcing is a great way to get perfect results without wasting the time practicing on CATIA.
For CAD Perfect results, turn to CAD/CAM Services. We have a team of over 100 engineers and draftsmen working around the clock. We’ve done millions of drawings over our decades in business, and we can handle your CATIA drafting project as well. Get a free quote today.
