Business Needs

Architectural millwork industry is a detail oriented craft and small mistakes in drawings amplify to huge losses. It needs domain expert CAD drafters to take up more work and able to deliver enhanced quality of drawings by asking the right questions.

Challenges

  • Coordinating with manufacturer due to time-zone differences
  • Understanding and gauging the manufacturer’s tooling capabilities

Our Solutions & Approach

Calculating joinery components during planning can remove hassles during manufacturing

Share Your Thoughts

Our millwork drafting specialists and design engineers began by studying the architectural drawings shared by the client and prepared an action plan with milestones.

  • With our long standing experience in furniture industry, engineers had a detailed brain storming session with client’s designers to understand intent and minimize drawing errors. 
  • Initial approval drawings were developed using AutoCAD and shared with the client with the pre-set quality standards.
  • Once the drawings were approved by project architect, discussion with manufacturer offered insights into their tooling capabilities
  • Manufacturing shop drawings were then developed and shipped to the client along with BoMs, laminate schedules, detailed drawings etc.
