Is this your current design workflow?

Design products using 3D CAD, then create 2D drawings, release those drawings, share the drawings with other departments and the supply chain…  Why do we work the way we do?  Why do we model parts and assemblies in 3D, and then create 2D drawings, and use them through the rest of the product lifecycle?  Why do we use 2D drawings as the master authority when we create the product in 3D? Why do we work today like we did more than 50 years ago?  Have you been spending time trying to make this process work, or maybe just make it work at all…?  Isn’t there a better way?


Print your thoughts! If a 3D printer were in a forest, would it still produce great hardware?

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) is game changing technology to not only manufacturing, but also to design. However, it must be backed by product definition methods that support this unique manufacturing method.

I hadn’t hear this term before — Design-Driven Manufacturing —

I have not decided if the term is catchy enough to evoke the correct concept, but it does describe a concept that I have been discussing for years, which is that the advent of 3D printing prototyping (and now the capability to directly manufacture products) has allowed us, designers, to print our thoughts.
