2D Drafting

This service is aimed at a client who requires a site layout to be developed following a larger project design. In certain projects, we find it can be advantageous to augment the design process with a site layout.

Layout Drafting – using AutoCAD LT to produce plant layouts either as a supplement to the above solid modelling service to optimise plant flow with regards the equipment being designed or as a general survey & layout drafting service.

CAD Administration

This service is targeted towards the client in the process of implementing their own SOLIDWORKS seat(s) and need experience based guidance on how best to get up and running.

Drawing from experience working in a professional design offices and as a SOLIDWORKS administrator. Donkey Work Design can provide ready-to-use templates for SOLIDWORKS parts, assemblies and drawings. We also offer a dial-in service for getting the templates installed and set up on client’s hardware. We can also create a distributable image to ensure future installations of SOLIDWORKS are an efficient and reliable experience. Additional training of staff can be provided on the above.

CAD Automation – DriveWorks

Once developed, clients often find that they have front-running products in their portfolio. These may be the products which they either produce large volumes of or the same product range with a variation on the final delivery. That’s where DriveWorks comes in.

For example, your company makes sheds. For every customer you’re delivering a shed, but the difference each time is the customer specification. When we study the product, we find the the variation each time falls into size, colour, door style and window position. Utilising a few basic principles, Donkey Work Design can develop the model in SOLIDWORKS in such a way that it can be automated in DriveWorks.

Automating the design & drafting element, and providing a service where we can develop the DriveWorks project and create a input form that correlates well with the information captured in the customer’s sales process.
