Are you an inventor with a new idea AND crude hand sketches, or do you work for or own a Company currently using poorly laid out 2D drawing packages ? More and more skilled workers are retiring and the labour pool is being flooded by unskilled workers. This influx of unskilled labour not only inhibits the correct interpretation, it also makes the proper execution in fabrication from continually used bad 2D drawing packages a highly risky and costly venture.
***** My service is not for Architectural Drafting. *****
*** All work is accepted under the terms of a standard Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA), whether in existence or not. ***
Outsourcing 2D drawings for 3D conversions is a proven and cost effective strategy for reducing your internal staff’s workload and stress. Having commonly used legacy files outsourced for communal library conversion not only gives your staff some much needed time to properly prioritize and concentrate their efforts on higher valued tasks, it also gives them freedom to re-evaluate the overall design and layout of ongoing designs.
I provide a proven and valuable service for all of my clients who have, or are now, in the process of migrating to a 3D environment. My comprehensive drafting service translates your rough 2D data, be it new or legacy; into fully parametric ( where applicable ) 3D models with detailed drawings. Once created, standalone part models can then be “ joined “ together to form a Complete Assembly Model. A complete 3D Assembly model allows the client the opportunity to verify that the form, fit and functionality criteria of all individual parts has been thoroughly met, long BEFORE approaching any manufacturer. Finding unforeseen manufacturing problems early on into the design process prevents loss of your hard earned capital and time, rebuilding costly prototype.
A complete Fabrication Package consists of all Parts and an Assembly model plus:
- Overall Assembly Drawing(s) with overall dimensions and Sub-Assembly BOM’s
- Sub-Assembly Drawing(s) with overall dimensions, weld and finish notes, and Hardware/ Part
BOM’s *** weld symbols are added solely at clients discretion as I am not a welder ***
- Part Drawing(s) fully dimensioned
Example: three stand alone parts
Part A = $25.00
Part B = $25.00
Part C = $25.00
Total for individual parts $75.00
**** Revisions MAY be considered new parts ****
The cost of a Complete Assembly Model is calculated using the following formula:
( number of ALL parts in the assembly divided by 3) x $25.00
Using Parts A,B and C from above a Complete Assembly Model would cost $25.00
Part A = $25.00
Part B = $25.00
Part C = $25.00
Assembly = $25.00
Total project cost $100.00
A Complete Assembly Model consisting of 60 parts would be billed for as follows:
60 x $25.00 = $1500.00 for all individual Part Models
(60/3) x $25.00 = $500.00 for complete Assembly Model
Total project cost $2000.00
*** In the case of an Assembly with 61 parts we round down to 60 parts. ***
*** In the case of an Assembly with 65 parts we round up to 66 parts. ***
Hardware ( pem inserts, washers, nuts, bolts, screws etc.) are not considered to be parts, and are not billed for. However; hinges are considered to be a single part and are included in billing.
Before beginning any large conversion project ( 100+ parts ) it is recommended that you send 10 or so, sample documents, along with your specific layering standards, blocks, etc. to facilitate an initial evaluation of competency. This sampling allows you and I to work together to ensure that the ongoing conversions do meet all of your specific needs before any large conversion projects are started.
Once you receive and review my pre-invoice e-files, a follow-up email will be issued to verify that the files have met all of your specific requirements. If any inconsistencies within the files are detected; corrections are completed immediately and the updated files are returned to you at no extra charge.
Invoicing / Payment
For Large projects ( 100+ parts ) :
Unalterable e-files of models and drawings, along with an Invoice will be sent to your company for your review. You will then have one business week to review the files for quality and accuracy, after which time e-payment is expected.
Upon confirmation of payment; all pertinent “Working Files” will be transmitted to you and a Backup Data DVD will be mailed out. Upon confirmation of receipt of your Project Backup Data DVD all of your project information, other than billing information will be permanently removed from our computer system.
Billing will be sent out in $500.00 increments. Failure to adhere the Invoicing payment policy above, will result in the termination of your projects work, until payment has been received.
For small projects ( less than 20 parts ) :
An unalterable e-file of models and drawings, along with an Invoice will be sent to your company for your review. You will then have 3 business days to review the files for quality and accuracy, after which time e-payment is expected.
Should you wish my services at an hourly rate, I charge $30.00 p/hr or portion thereof.
I prefer not to charge an hourly rate, but rather a per PART flat rate fee of $25.00. I prefer this method so that clients are not burdened with bad computer time ( program crashes, lag etc. etc. )
