3DSL DRAWING OFFICE PROCEDURES

LET’S GET THE BORING STUFF OUT OF THE WAY

DRAWING NUMBERS

We implement a simple but effective drawing office configuration control system to ensure that drawing numbers are unique

DOCUMENT DISTRIBUTION

We keep a record of who has what and ensure that only certain people catch a glimpse of your drawings.  If there is a change, we know who to notify

REVISION CONTROL

Whenever there is a change, 3DSL will consider the effect of the change on drawings that have been distributed or parts that have been made

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR DOING IT THE RIGHT WAY

OUR DRAWING OFFICE PROCEDURES

CAD FILE STORAGE

We use a simple file sync tool that is suited to CAD file management.  Our solution creates revisions in the cloud and informs other users when certain files are being worked on

DESIGN FILE STORAGE

We use all of the main cloud collaboration tools and keep AES backups to hardware devices.  If you have a preferred way of collaborating, we would be happy to use yours.

With specialist skills in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, we provide a full complement of product design services to send your product soaring.
