Transferring CAD information to other IT systems

For a manufacturing company to effectively operate its core production and supporting processes, including warehousing, logistics, and accounting, it relies on a robust information management system. In addition to the physical production flow that transforms raw materials into final products, there exists an essential information flow that supplies all the necessary data to oversee and regulate the primary flow, keeping it on track and under control.

Complex process of redesigning a product

It is safe to say that design changes are an integral part of the furniture construction process. On one hand, this is due to the nature of the process, which is particularly evident in the design of more complex furniture. Before the design can fully align with the designer’s ultimate vision, it is often necessary to implement various modifications and create multiple design iterations. Continue reading…

Protracted Information Preparation for Production

The work undertaken by the Design Unito can be divided into two distinct components: crafting the furniture model and assembling the requisite production information. Crafting a piece of furniture is a creative endeavor, the duration of which is directly contingent upon the intricacy of the piece. On the other hand, preparing information entails the mechanical task of extracting essential data from the designed furniture model, including drawings, Bill of Materials (BOMs), and, in certain cases, the development of CNC programs by the design unit.

Hidden Design

This term, ‘hidden design,’ characterizes situations where designers fail to provide comprehensive production information due to tool limitations or excessive workloads. Nevertheless, crafting a piece of furniture necessitates the inclusion of all essential details. Continue reading…

Errors in specifications and drawings. A complex process of changing the design

The primary source of errors in documentation stems from manual work. The distinction between automated and manual information preparation is crucial. Automated preparation is executed by a program, and if there’s an error in the program, it will consistently reproduce the same error under identical circumstances, making it relatively easy to detect and correct. On the other hand, humans are inherently variable systems, with their performance influenced by factors like mood, fatigue, and health. One day, a person may work flawlessly, while the next day, mistakes may occur. Whenever human involvement is required in any part of the documentation process, the likelihood of errors immediately increases. Continue reading…

Challenges in Designing Complex Furniture

Furniture design is undergoing a transformation, with increasing complexity in both design concepts and materials employed. Consequently, CAD systems must meet specific criteria to fulfill their role effectively:

  1. Capable of modeling products with intricate and unconventional structures or shapes.
  2. Able to model furniture using a diverse array of materials, including panels, metal, glass, wood, plastic, and more.
  3. Equipped to automatically convert all modeled data into production-ready information, such as Bill of Materials (BOM), drawings, and CNC programs.
