The client, a leading designer and manufacturer of retail furniture from the UK, partnered with our furniture design engineers to transform their conceptual sketches into detailed CAD drawings with manufacturing details and instruction. Our furniture design teams with rich experience in SolidWorks drafting services prepared comprehensive drawings and shared with the client.

  • Project engineers collaborated with the client to understand their design requirements for form, fit and finish.
  • 3D models and rendered images in SolidWorks was prepared and shared with the client for approvals with RFIs for design intent clarity.
  • 2D manufacturing drawings with BOMs and exploded isometric views were created for modular manufacturing designs and site assembly.

Business Impact

The furniture manufacturer was reduced transportation costs by 45% due to knockdown design approach, 60% design costs and 30% on inventory benefits with modular design approach. Also, overall design cycle was shorted by 70% due to offshore design development.
