Everything must fit. Technical drawings in ink on graph paper are history. But the relevant drawing standards still apply to the technical product designer.
Technical product designers (m/f/d) create drawings with CAD systems. Any dimensioning that is useful for production and assembly must be included in the drawing and, if necessary, calculated with dimensions and characteristic values. Plans and parts lists are created for production. Laser systems and forming machines, for example, are controlled according to these specifications. Sometimes it is individual components that are designed with all the necessary dimensions - it can also be entire assemblies or machines. These can be viewed on the computer in their assembled state from different perspectives. 3D constructions are used to check whether everything fits. Exploded views show each individual part and help with assembly or later maintenance. Thus they are often an important part of a machine documentation.
At Buddenkotte, the technical product designers are in direct contact with all departments. They consult with material purchasing and work preparation during the planning phase. Metal and mechanical engineering expertise forms a good basis for technical product designers.
