Any engineer can create a drawing of their parts and assemblies. How useful that drawing will actually be during manufacturing is another issue altogether. And sometimes we assume that the model is enough. A 3D model can be useful in the manufacturing process, but it cannot convey everything that a good drawing can. That’s where drafting outsourcing comes into play. They have the knowledge, the tools, and experience necessary to communicate a design. And when things get complicated or tolerances get a little tight, an experienced drafter will make all the difference!
A well-drafted drawing will save you time once it hits the floor because it communicates all the part’s intricacies before any questions arise. There is fewer back and forth between engineering and shop, and fewer drawing revisions when the job is done right the first time. That saves money and valuable schedule time. And when products are successful and production is scaled up, a good starting document will simplify the process.
Let the designer fine-tune the functionality and optimize the design. Shifting gears to work on the drawing can be a struggle and a waste of time that could be spent on the next project or proposal. Leave the drafting to the professionals. Professional drafters have the specialized experience needed to get the job right the first time.
