Fox-1 Mechanical Design Services Provided

 

PAPER TO CAD

By helping you convert your paper drawings and "blue prints" to Computer Aided Design (CAD), we can help you maintain drawings in many different digital formats.

 

MECHANICAL DRAFTING

We use associative solid modeling software, which keeps our 2D documentation in sync with our latest solid models. Automatically generates *.DWG or *.DXF files for users of AutoCAD or other CAD systems. Since most of our projects end up in production the value of having an accurate and up to date documentation package at the end of the project cannot be overstated.

 

3D CAD MODELING SERVICES

Fox-1 Drafting & Design offers full service 3D solid modeling solutions. We have the ability to design your product / idea in 3D CAD programs as if it were a solid object. You can see the process three dimensionally as the geometry is being created. This reduces your parts time to market, as well as reducing your chance of a product being incorrectly designed. In addition, once your product is created in a 3D CAD program, a wide variety of 3rd party products can be utilized such as stress analysis, animation, conceptual rendering, CNC tool paths, and more. The 3D CAD solid modeling platforms we support will link themselves to a three dimensional assembly and to a two dimensional drawing file, so once you make a change anywhere in the design process, all of the linked files will update automatically. This is a tremendous benefit in the reduction of error/failure rate for any design process, which we can apply to each and every one of our customers.

 

REVERSE ENGINEERING (RE)

As computer-aided design (CAD) has become more popular, reverse engineering has become a viable method to create a 3D virtual model of an existing physical part for use in 3D CAD, CAM, CAE or other software. Fox-1 Drafting and Design can help you discover the technological details of a device, object, or system through an analysis of its structure, function, and operation. This process can provide valuable inputs to help create a superior and improvised design because reverse engineering is the process of discovering the technological principles of a device, object or system through analysis of its structure, function and operation.
