Establishing design requirements and conducting requirement analysis, sometimes termed problem definition, is one of the most important elements in the design process.
The feasibility study is an evaluation and analysis of the potential of a proposed project to support the process of decision making.
A concept study (conceptualisation, conceptual design) is often a phase of project planning that includes producing ideas and taking into account the pros and cons of implementing those ideas.
The preliminary design, often bridges a gap between design conception and detailed design, particularly in cases where the level of conceptualisation achieved during ideation is not sufficient for full evaluation.
Detailed Design (Detailed Engineering) phase, which may consist of procurement of materials as well. This phase further elaborates each aspect of the project/product by complete description through solid modeling, drawings as well as specifications.
Design for manufacturability
Design for manufacturability (DFM) is the general engineering art of designing products in such a way that they are easy to manufacture.
Reverse EngineeringWhat is Reverse Engineering?
Reverse Engineering is a term used to describe the process of re-constructing an existing product accurately, for the purpose of manufacturing more of the same kind or modifying it to improve upon its design.
Often companies have the requirements for CAD Drawings of an existing part.
This can be due to:
No Drawings exist only the tooling to make the part.
Drawings are very old.
The Supplier makes the part and has and will not provide the drawings.
In these cases it is possible to measure the existing part by:
3D Scanning, Hand measurements
Recreating 3D CAD Models from existing parts.
Following this, new 3D CAD models can be created and from this the subsequent 2D Drawings.
Finite Element AnalysisWhat is finite element analysis software?
Finite element analysis (FEA) is a computerized method for predicting how a product reacts to real-world forces, vibration, heat, fluid flow, and other physical effects. Finite element analysis shows whether a product will break, wear out, or work the way it was designed.
It is called analysis, but in the product development process, it is used to predict what is going to happen when the product is used.
FEA works by breaking down a real object into a large number (thousands to hundreds of thousands) of finite elements, such as little cubes. Mathematical equations help predict the behavior of each element.
A computer then adds up all the individual behaviors to predict the behavior of the actual object.
Finite element analysis helps predict the behavior of products affected by many physical effects.
3D ScanningWhat is 3D Scanning?
3D Laser Scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures the shape of physical objects using a line of laser light. 3D laser scanners create "point clouds" of data from the surface of an object. In other words, 3D laser scanning is a way to capture a physical object's exact size and shape into the computer world as a digital 3-dimensional representation.
3D laser scanners measure fine details and capture free-form shapes to quickly generate highly accurate point clouds. 3D laser scanning is ideally suited to the measurement and inspection of contoured surfaces and complex geometries which require massive amounts of data for their accurate description and where doing this is impractical with the use of traditional measurement methods or a touch probe.
Envision has invested in the latest in 3d laser scanning.
The Leica BLK360 captures the world around you in a high-accuracy point cloud.
Using the ReCap Pro mobile app, the BLK360 streams point cloud data direct to an iPad Pro. The app filters and registers scan data in real time.
After capture, ReCap Pro enables point cloud data transfer to Autodesk software dramatically streamlines the reality capture process. Read More
ISO 9001: 2015
Organizations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
At Envision quality is a vital part of our business and as such we are certified to and in compliance with ISO 9001:2015 quality standard.
We are pleased to have full compliance after our BSI audit in January.
At Envision we recognise the importance of protecting both our own and our client's data.
We are also pleased we have met the requirements for this standard for a forth year. Read More
