Creating a Fabrication-Ready Product Design

April 21, 2021


When creating a design for metal fabrication, it’s vital to ensure your fabricator is able to translate the design into the final product you desire.


In order to come up with a useful metal fabrication design, here are some tips to keep in mind:


Involve the fabricator early on

If you get your fabricator involved early on, it is more likely that your designs will be feasible. In case you have designs that are unworkable or need to be redesigned, it will cost you more money and time. This is why getting your fabricator involved early on during the design process is crucial. They can provide professional advice on any minor alternations necessary to make sure that your design is optimal for metal fabrication.


Perform tests prior to production

There are many instances when a beautiful design fails to meet real-world conditions as it does not translate very well from an idea into reality. See to it that your metal fabricator provides you with 3D models and prototypes that will allow you to test your design prior to final production. Testing is a crucial metal fabrication process in ensuring that your design meets the intended purpose for your product.


Select materials carefully

When it comes to designing a product for metal fabrication, there are plenty of materials to consider. The choice you make will have an impact on the practicability of your product and on its efficiency as well. In this case, it helps to seek help from your fabricator before finally making your decision to come up with the most effective and feasible design.


Pick a metal fabricator who understands what you need

As already mentioned, the inputs of your metal fabricator are key to having a successful design and its translation into becoming a real product. Choose a fabricator who fully understands your purpose for the project. They have to be knowledgeable and have the right expertise in the industry to make sure that standard regulations and processes are adhered to properly.
