CAD Drawings

CAD Illustrations

The three examples below show how effective an illustration can be. This can be made even more effective when they provide the information that prospective purchasers are looking for. It is reasonably safe to assume that purchasers will fall in one of two groups. The first is the complete novice the second is experienced to expert. The novice will purchase on the assumption that the written description is accurate and provides them with all the information they need. Until they find that they should have asked for more. This type of customer could leave you with a terrible review or non at all. The second type will probably move on to another website to find the item they are looking for where the information provided satisfies their level of expertise. If they leave reviews they will be good if the service matches the information.

This has become very noticeable on websites like Amazon and ebay where components are available but usually poorly described or illustrated. The description may appear to be very detailed as Amazon usually provide, but this is no guarantee as the seller is not responsible for the description. Only that their item matches it. This could be right or wrong and again reviews will reflect this.

How to solve this.

Provide illustrations as below but with the dimensional information for all to make an informed decision. Obvious really but seldom done the exception being the specialsed merchant who provides CAD illustrations as standard. They sometimes also provide fitting instructions or drilling patterns.

925 Business Services has recognised this common problem and provides a CAD service to help you eliminate it and help you increase sales and positive feedback. If this sounds like something you could use get in touch and let us know what it is you want to illustrate. Accurate CAD drawings can take time to produce so it is usually more economical if there are a number of similar items to illustrate or one good illustration that can be adapted to suit many variants. For example wheels for bicycles. We can supply you with the actual CAD file (DWG or DXF) or images from it either dimensioned or undimensioned. These can be supplied in various image formats please advise your preference. (Example image file formats JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, GIF etc.) These can also be sized (pixels by pixels) for quick insertion into your website depending on your preference.

Description

Each of the descriptions given above give the same information and are factually correct. The one in the centre gives parameters for the intended use. Even here there is the potential to improve the illustration by supplying a plan view alongside. This will advise the prospective purchaser of how much room the castor will need so it can rotate on its base.
