“The global computer-aided design (CAD) software market was valued at $8,325.0 million in 2017 and is predicted to progress at a CAGR of 6.6% during 2018–2023. The increasing use of CAD software in the packaging industry and automotive industry is one of the key factors positively influencing the growth of the market.” – PS Market Research

Drawings are the language that connects the Designers with the Machinists which allows dialogue with the outside community! In fact, the 2D drawing is considered as a universal way to represent and communicate an idea.

Although Detailing is thought to be the least important of activities in the Design field, it is actually the most important piece of document which ensures the desired outcome perfectly, by also guiding the manufacturing process.

The method of detailing can vary based on the region and standards that are followed by companies, e.g. DIN, ISO & ANSI.

Any Industry, especially in Mechanical Industry, the drawings are filled with minute details like Tolerances, markings, surface quality that are essential to ensure fit and functionality. The detailed drawings are the mainstay for parts manufacturing in all the mechanical industries like Automotive, SPM, and Heavy Industries.

Every Designer needs to possess the experience and attention to (minute) details to deliver error free drawings, which could be taxing and time consuming. However, they are the most important skillsets that every company is looking for.

The below three detailing case studies talk about how the customers from different regions have benefitted.
