Business Needs

  • Need for resources with cabinet design drafting to create detailed manufacturing drawings
  • Generate a temporary pool of resources for clearing off huge backlog projects


  • Skill gap in delivering detailed manufacturing CAD drawings for kitchen cabinets
  • Accelerate design drafting tasks to stay on project schedule
  • Acquire project-specific skills in AutoCAD drafting
  • Maintain stringent process to meet client satisfaction on daily, weekly and monthly basis

Our Solutions & Approach

Stay efficient with standard CAD library parts

A team of six AutoCAD engineers with expertise in cabinet design drafting was assembled. After we received the architect’s drawings as inputs, team had an in-depth studied of the drawings.

  • Project team started by understanding the design intent and manufacturing inputs
  • They also studied placement of every product such as cabinets, service tables, ovens etc. and distances between each product and kitchen section were planned carefully
  • Design detailing like need for drawers, handle design, sliding doors, hinges etc. were communicated with the client as well as the end customers to initiate development of detailed drawings
  • A POC was assigned to facilitate seamless communication between the client, Hitech teams and the end customer who consulted to select appropriate joineries
  • Final drawings had clearly defined sections, tolerances, allowances and need for hardware along with interpretation drawings
  • The project engineers took care of basic aesthetical parts such as avoiding damage to walls by hinges, vanities underneath the basins etc. All revisions were addressed using red markups.
  • Initial RFIs were raised and all details for bought out parts like hinges, runners, handles, leg support, caster wheel detail etc. were enlisted in the BOMs
  • Blocks of all standard products were readily available in AutoCAD library which were used to save modeling time
  • Final shop drawings, elevations, floor plans and sections were generated from these models with details for items like cabinets, doors, wardrobe, etc. were converted to AutoCAD dwgs. files
  • Strict QC was done for all dwgs. prepared against the architect’s drawings and markups shared by senior engineer
