Mr. Vaghela has been working on CAD-based projects since 2010 and has been consulting since 2015. He has a mechanical background, and he has been working mainly with civil engineers.
He prepares 2D drawings and 3D models using AutoCAD, Revit, Sketch up, Maya,
Creo, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Autodesk 3ds Max, Inventor and CATIA.
He has been providing drafting services for the following:
• HVAC systems, electrical services, plumbing services
• P & ID Diagrams, Isometric drawings
• Fabrication drawings
• 3d modeling services
• Paper to cad drawing
• Character design and animation walkthroughs
• Furniture design
He provides the following CAD-based services:
• CAD conversions (paper to cad, 2D to 3D, image to cad and AutoCAD to 3d modeling)
• 2D drafting services
• 3D modeling
• Product designing, conceptual designing
• Rapid prototyping services
• MEP(Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing) services
In Civil services, he provides:
• Paper to CAD conversion
• Architect model
• Paper to CAD conversion
The Architectural services that he has been providing includes:
• MEP Services, such as 2d drafting, 3d modeling, rendering service, photo rendering and animation services, renovations and walkthroughs.
He has also been providing the following reverse engineering services:
• He has worked on a binocular project for one of his clients.
• For one of his German clients he has worked on a gun probe design and defined a new design of handle.
• He has also worked on drawings for medical equipment, such as lenses and
lens cover. According to his client’s requirement, he creates a prototype and finalizes the product.
• He has worked on reverse engineering for automotive parts as well.
He has also worked on some of the following:
• Fluid flow/ gas flow meter
• Biometric Scanner (Sheet Metal)
• Spot Welding Fixtures
First the prototype is made ready and approved and then it is sent to the supplier for mass production.
He has been providing manufacturing support services as well, such as:
• Manufacturing of petrol – flammable liquid measuring device
• Casting support services
• Machining support services such as turning services, wire cutting, laser cutting, and water jet cutting services, plastic product – mould design and manufacturing services
Sharma provides engineering services to structural steel and pre-engineered steel builders. He has worked with churches in the US and a company involved in digital electronic equipment, construction material and car accessories equipment.
When serving clients in the US, he works according to the building code standards of MBMA and AWIS. Since building code standards change from company to company based on their production capability, so he collects their standards during the course of a project. In this way, he easily adopts their standards during the preparation of GAD’s (general arrangement drawings), which he then uses for creating fabrication drawing. A fabrication drawing is further used to create shop drawings. Based on such shop drawings, he creates a component list in the form of a shipper (i.e. equipment lists for the logistics service provider).
On the basis of a company’s standards and approved drawings, he prepares shop, fabrication or component assembly drawings and bills of materials (BOM’s) or shippers. He mainly uses AutoCAD, TEKLA and MS Office to prepare these documents.
With respect to pre-engineered buildings (PEB’s), he handles all types of complexity, such as high bay and low bay combinations, fascia, bypass and flush conditions, mezzanines, cranes and crane walkway platforms, staircases, sunken slab mezzanine cut outs, canopies, screw downs and floating roof systems.
Raval has been working since 2011 in the field of new product development. For the first two years, he worked on casting, forging and automotive projects. For the next two years, he worked on agricultural machinery design, producing drawings of tractors (from the initial design phase to the final marketing) for an Indian OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer). This OEM assembled agricultural equipment, such as tractors, harvesters, sprayers, uni-platforms, etc. For the next 3 years he has been working for a major engineering, construction, manufacturing and financial services conglomerate. He serves US and Europe-based automotive clients involved in the manufacturing of products for recreational purposes, such as ATVs, snowmobiles and motorcycles.
While working in the engineering services industry, he has handled a number of automotive projects. The most interesting CAD project that he has worked on so far was the one where he got the opportunity to design various automotive systems including driveline, gearbox, differential, engine, chassis, interior body work and exterior body.
He observes that today in the market for CAD services, design and manufacturing are coming together and every day companies launch new technologies. He believes that with the help of CAD prototyping, experts can now quickly make designs and models.
As he has been working for clients based in the U.S and Europe in the field of design and development for many years, he has learned how to select the best software for each application. He uses software to represent his conception of an idea and makes a selection according to customer requirements. His favorite tools are Creo Parametric 2.0 and 3.0, which he uses for 3D modelling, casting, forging, sheet metal and assembling models. He also likes Catia for surfacing. He likes to work on Unigraphic and AutoCAD 2D for 2D modelling.
Since he is handling projects for US and Europe-based clients, all the work-related discussion happens on Webex, Skype, and Jabber. He is now skilled in ways of connecting with the clients through Skype and remote servers. When faced with a difficult situation, he also meets the client.
Having worked as an interim CAD draftsman and an external CAD consultant on projects, he has learned about many new technologies. He looks forward to new challenges and opportunities every day.Connect
