When developing a new product, engineers will often create 2D sketches to help visualize the product and explore different design options. These sketches are usually created by hand, using pencil and paper. However, they can also be created digitally, using CAD software. Regardless of the method used, 2D sketches are an important tool for exploring different design concepts and finding the best possible solution.
2D sketches are typically very simple drawings that show the basic shape and form of a product. They are usually not to scale, and may not include all of the details of the final design. However, they can be very helpful in visualizing a product and understanding how it will function. Engineers will often create multiple 2D sketches of a single product, exploring different design options before moving on to more detailed drawings.
This blog post will discuss the top risks of outsourcing 2D product design work and how to mitigate them.
