Mechanical Design and Detailing

TDO can help you fine tune your existing design or take your idea from concept and produce drawings and illustrations for presentation purposes. Our design strategies are based on the criteria that are important to you including:

  • Designs with client focus parameters, what is important - functionality, cost effective manufacture, a professional looking product.
  • Designed and detailed using 3D parametric technology, means repeatability on designs.
  • Designed by people with practical backgrounds
  • Design with available materials, availability of manufacturing ability, network of suppliers can be recommended or solutions for manufacture investigated.

3D Solid modeling technology has advanced the mechanical design industry in particular. Mechanical design usually entails moving components and with moving components comes collisions. Consequently the use of 2D software made it difficult for the designer to be confident in a product until a prototype was made and then the design refined. However when using 3D strategies all collisions are dealt with and motion is simulated before any tools are even picked up reducing lead times to market considerably.

  • We detail to your company standards or you can choose to use our standards.
  • We are flexible and your requirements remain our focus.
  • Customised title blocks.
  • Client driven drawing sheet sizes.
