The furniture industry, unlike other manufacturing industries, is driven by trade shows which take place twice a year. Also, it is not possible for any medium-size company to bring in fifty new designs in one market of which only 25 will go into production. Though a certain group of furniture have similar stylistic elements each of them require individual development through engineering and also defined manufacturing documents. Just cycle means that there will be a low volume of production especially in the case of medium and higher-end priced pieces.
But this flexible manufacturing environment can be achieved in this furniture industry not by investing in high-tech robotics but by finding a way to bring CAD/CAM tools into the implementation phase. They can be brought into the environment in a cost-effective manner. This will also help in addressing the increasing demands for accurate and timely generation of information which may be required for the production of new pieces of furniture.
These days furniture manufacturing companies that are also involved in retail store furniture manufacturing at various locations around the world have their investments focused on the outsourcing CAD drawing, CAD drafting services and 3D modelling for getting the accurate form of fabrication drawings and also to allow communication with the design team and shop floor. 3D CAD drafting services for the purpose of manufacturing and various 3D models for installation and assembling have been playing important part in case of retail manufacturing in the recent time.
This CAD software also helps in meeting the stipulated engineering time to construct the furniture, supports in lifting up the quality of any drawing, align the needs of design with the capabilities of the shop floor, helps in saving the time of the workers and also avoid material wastage, ensure timely delivery of the CAD drawings and finally helps in meeting the needs of workforce as well.
Using CAD software you may design mark up drawings, deliver various custom parametric libraries, and generate flat sheet pattern drawings, draw various photorealistic metal furniture models for marketing purpose and also define the drawing for cabinets and casework as well.
