Design Standards

Design StandardsCastle View Design will work to your company’s design standards. Simply provide your part, assembly and drawing document templates and we will ensure that all work is produced to your requirements. Alternatively we can work to BS, EN, ISO or DIN standards as required.

We are experienced with working to BS8888 and geometric tolerancing (GD&T).

Other standards
We also have the flexibility to work to less familiar standards. Recently with a client we presented a project to the China Special Equipment Inspection and Research Institute in Beijing, in order to approve a theme park ride design. Together with clients, we have also presented designs for review to a defence end user in France and an automotive manufacturer in South Korea.

Importing data
Frequently we are required to integrate third party CAD models produced in other packages. We usually import from STEP or IGES files, although sometimes we may be required to create 3d geometry from 2d data.

Exporting data
We often ‘saveas’ drawings to dwg format for third parties and we create dxf profiles for lasercutting providers. Interim design solutions may be presented in eDrawings format, thus allowing non-CAD users to view models without specialist software.

Castle View Design use Microsoft Office 2013 for all written documentation and drawing packs are produced in PDF format.
