Challenges

  • Ensuring appropriate development of surface profiles as per the specifications.
  • Maintaining proper geometrical dimensioning and tolerance.
  • Maintaining dimensional accuracy for proper casting.

Our Solutions & Approach

3D CAD models with detailed engineering information led to easy designs modification of casting part and significantly reduced the engineering lead time.

The casting component manufacturer from the USA partnered our industrial design engineering team to translate the legacy of 2D PDF drawings into 3D CAD models with detailed engineering information. Our project team developed comprehensive design models in SolidWorks to develop parametric CAD model and enable the client to have uninterrupted casting process.

  • Project team made a detailed study of the PDF drawings and sketches shared by the client for casting component.
  • Based on these inputs, our SolidWorks drafters prepared 3D CAD solid models of the casting parts.
  • Appropriate dimensions, draft allowance, and other tolerance for casting process were applied to the model and sent to client for approvals.
  • Final models were prepared with manufacturing drawings, instruction, BOMs and other technical documentation was shared with client.

With the comprehensive modeling and single source file for manufacturing and design referencing, the client could significantly shorten the engineering lead time. Also, digitization of designs in parametric CAD software led to easy designs modification of casting part in future.
