Fictiv launches new auto-generated 2D drawings to improve

SAN FRANCISCO, July 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — fictionalthe leader in high-quality, on-demand manufacturing through its digital manufacturing ecosystem, today unveiled an industry-first feature that allows engineers to create and modify 2D designs from 3D models in a few seconds.

In addition to designing parts in CAD, engineers often also need to communicate manufacturing requirements with a 2D drawing. However, this drafting process can be laborious and time-consuming, and is therefore a step that is often omitted in the early stages of development. By digitizing and automating this traditionally manual element of the documentation process, Fictiv enables its customers to easily communicate critical requirements, resulting in higher quality parts at all stages of a new product introduction.

“Product manufacturing companies are in the midst of a rapid transition to digital workflows that save time and money while avoiding disruption,” said Todd Taylor, vice president of Fictiv. , Application Engineering. “With automatically generated 2D drawings, Fictiv’s platform helps reduce the hassle and friction of a critical step in the specification and communication process – enabling teams to accelerate development without sacrificing quality.”

Available through the Fictiv platform, the new tool allows customers to automatically generate 2D designs that can be viewed and edited simply by uploading a 3D model. The result is a clear, standardized and easily understandable drawing produced in seconds.

Each Fictiv 2D drawing includes one (1) isometric view, three (3) profile views (top, front, and right), and any additional profile views needed to display items not yet highlighted. Once created, drawings can easily be edited and annotated to eliminate old requirements, highlight critical-to-quality (CTQ) features that require inspection, and more. All drawings with annotations are reviewed by Fictiv manufacturing experts to ensure requirements are met.
