Happy Friday to you all. Our blog this week is all about drawings. To kick off (excuse the pun, it seems appropriate!) do you know when engineering drawings first emerged? Gaspard Monge developed the orthographic technique in 1765. As France was at war, this means of sharing ideas was kept top secret!

Fast forward, and the orthographic technique remains the mainstay of engineering design. The drawings provide full definition dimensions and tolerances by giving different product views.

This week, we have completed 80 drawings for a test fixture. It’s an interesting work of inventive design – just what we like!

Using our in-house printer, the client now has the drawings to hand. Complete with annotations for manufacturing suggestions and notes for welding, they can proceed and are on schedule for production. We create all our drawings using SolidWorks Premium. This provides secure storage and sharing of data as well as high-quality drawings. To find out more about this service, please visit our website or give us a call – 01373 801 803.

It’s also a happy week for our clients on the sweet front! To celebrate our 4th birthday, one lucky client, drawn at random, has received a lovely box of brownies. We can vouch for this as they make them on-site at Heywood House, where we are based! There’s also a treat in with our latest brochure. We’re busy sending these out at the moment with info about:

  • Mechanical 3D design
  • Contract CAD services
  • Structural Analysis
  • Renders
  • Animations
  • 3D scanning and printing
  • CAD plotting

If you know anyone who would like to find out more about White Horse CAD, please point them our way, and we’ll send them a brochure.
