Utilizing 3D Design and Pattern Flattening to Shorten Furniture Making Production Cycles
Did you know?
With the rapidly increasing requirement for custom furniture or on-demand fabrication, manual processes are no longer enough to enable profitable production. In fact, the biggest disadvantages of legacy furniture design processes are:
- The time it takes to create and iterate on the design.
- The need to almost re-start the entire process to address even the smallest change.
- The excessive lead time and cost associated with any type of “personalized” product.
The transition to 3D design processes, especially the use of integrated 3D to 2D Flattening software coupled with automated textile printing, cutting and assembly practices can have a tremendous impact on production cycle time, and profitability.Read more and check out our latest blog post authored by Cliff Brown and our friends from ExactFlat!
