Designer, constructor, designer, designer, technologist of furniture production and interior items are all facets of my profession. My professional experience began in 1989. For the last 6 years I have been designing upholstered furniture remotely, which gives me the opportunity to perform many very interesting orders for clients from different countries. In the course of my professional activity I faced the situation when talented furniture makers are not friends with the computer, and talented 3d-Shniki are absolutely not familiar with nuances of furniture production. This is especially true for upholstered furniture, as the design of the computer cabinet furniture process is much simpler (there are many specialized programs that simplify this activity to an intuitively understandable level of conventional Computer user). I have done a decent amount of work. I have mastered computer design of upholstered furniture with the issuance of the full volume of documentation, allowing to produce real products with minimum time, materials and financial resources.
I can design any furniture, but I prefer soft “a la Italia”, as it is more complicated and interesting. In the workflow, you have to use the most powerful arsenal of 3d modeling and design required for each specific task. In my opinion designing upholstered furniture is more an art, a hull-more craft. But this is a very rude generalization, ignoring a lot of exceptions.
Use in mass production of furniture of such modern technologies as three-dimensional modelling with the use of CNC equipment allows to display serial products on an exclusive level, to produce furniture, not inferior in the level of furniture, Custom-made. Drawings and templates in electronic form allow to change quickly, accurately and competently the sizes, configuration, complete set and appearance of furniture necessary at present moment. Modern technologies also reduce the dependence of the quality of furniture on the skill of employees, which in turn gives savings in wages and increases the competitiveness of the product. But I as a designer primarily technology pleased with the expansion of freedom of creativity.
Before the introduction of three-dimensional modeling furniture, many things had to be done on the eyes, by real trial and error, with double and triple over-consumption of materials and time, and with the resulting inaccurate results. manufacture, use, storage of patterns and templates obtained by artisanal method entail problems related to wear, spoilage, loss. The number of such patterns in intensive production is simply over-scaling, complicating any classification and systematization. As a result, searching and completing the templates of a particular product turns into a nervous puzzle, when it is easier and more correct to do everything anew.
I have been manufacturing furniture for more than a quarter of a century, I have experienced several forced crossings and each of them has added gray hair on my head destroying at least half of the pressure of unbearable labor. All the documentation of the factory in electronic form solves this problem once and for all.
All the documentation and templates of the furniture factory accumulated during the whole period of work are on one flash drive with a password. All your business in your pocket. Life presents dizzying surprises, but no matter how sideways it turned to you fortune, your experience and all the accumulated database of documents, models of furniture, drawings, specifications, patterns, suppliers, customers-always with you, allowing you to easily replicate Business, restore it from scratch, be confident in the future. Show the x-th changeable Destiny!
Standard for documentation and drawings of upholstered furniture
For the documentation for upholstered furniture in electronic form, at the moment there are no gost and standards. In my opinion documents for the production of upholstered furniture must meet such criteria:
- Drawings, illustrations and specifications should be performed professionally and at the same time be understood by “poorly qualified” workers.
- They should actually produce real furniture, eliminating even minor annoying mistakes inevitable when designing upholstered furniture “from the head”.
- The curves of the curved parts must be made on a scale of 1:1 for printing on a plotter or printer.
- Visual illustrations should be created for a clear understanding of the working assembly of the product.
- It is desirable to foresee scalability (for example deuce, three, a unit) if it allows the model of furniture.
- Possibility of any additions on your request.
Incoming and outgoing data on the soft furniture project.
In practice, the process of our interaction is as follows:
You send me to email, watsapp, Viber or Skype photo, picture, drawing from the hand of furniture, which should be designed with the indication of dimensions and other sizes and explanations at your discretion. I will formulate the questions that need to be clarified for the execution of the project, determine the due date, the price and contact you. I do not take prepayment. The calculation occurs when you see the result.
Time, events, people leave an indelible mark on the intricacies of our neurons on the one hand, on the other, the analysis of what is happening removes as shavings unnecessary, flimsy, artificial layers and limitations of the mind. Life and professional experience allow not to dwell on trifles to look at many things more abstractedly, generalized, as though from a bird’s-eye view. Tying together and understanding their experiences with the predecessors ‘ experience, the transfer of the received followers-certainly not the only, but quite worthy goal.
Working in the old fashioned way, we do not just trample on the spot, but recline ourselves back in a competitive competition. Whether we want or not, the cult of consumption, which underlies our modern civilization, dictates its rules for a comfortable existence in this world. And the swimmer who is rattling against the tide will exhale sooner or later and go to the bottom. There are two more options. It is possible to relax and let carries where carries, and it is possible to rake in the necessary direction not resisting the general stream. The first variant of course heroic and beautiful, but looks like masochism, bordering on suicide. The second is too conformist, turning into a free-form rag. I prefer the third option, provided a reasonable definition of the purpose and direction. It allows not to go through its own moral and ethical principles not only not to fall overboard the historical development, but also without much effort to overtake the floating nearby. My friends, do not let yourself drown in the muddy waves of ignorance and conservatism, vygrebite on clean water innovations and progress. I throw you a paddle, catch.
