Mechanical Design

DRA maintains SolidWorks work station to provide solid modeling computer-aided design (CAD) capabilities. 3-D product renderings are produced, along with animation to evaluate the form-fit-function of a design’s sub-components and completed assembly prior to manufacturing. This includes taking industry standard STEP files from commercial products all the way to DRA custom OrCad PCB board layouts and incorporating them into a design. Procedures for the conversion of 3-D renderings to 2-D mechanical diagrams to support the manufacturing process are well established, along with partnerships with local machine shops as well as working relationships with additive manufacturing companies to produce everything from rapid prototypes to high-quality, low cost, custom fabricated solutions.
