Component & Fabrication Drawings

Often overlooked but integral to the success of a complex project

Accurate drawings allow effective communication between the designer and the manufacturer

Part/Component Drawings

Part drawings are an essential step in the manufacturing process. We can take your sketches or concepts and turn them into complete drawings ready for manufacture. These drawings will detail the specifics of how the material dimensions and how they should be cut.

Assembly Drawings

Assembly drawings provide detailed instructions for the build of sub-assemblies or final assemblies. They are key documents that help your engineers understand how to join all the parts together. Once your engineers understand the build requirements, the construction will run much more smoothly.

An assembly drawing can include the following:

  • All parts and components to be manufactured
  • Specific part numbers or codes relevant to each component
  • Fixings, such as nuts, bolts, washers, etc
  • Bill of Materials (BOM) showing a detailed list of parts and components
  • A variety of views to demonstrate how the final product is assembled, including the top view, side view, detailed view, section views and exploded views
  • Additional information can be included if necessary, i.e. mass properties, weights and assembly instructions

We can deliver a full manufacturing drawing package, as detailed above, or customise it to your specific requirements. To create your drawings, we’ll require at least some of the following information:

  • Paper drawings or sketches
  • Concept drawings, parts or images
  • Existing CAD drawings, 2D or 3D models
  • Existing parts (if possible)
  • Details of the part numbering system
