What are Fabrication Drawings

Fabrication drawings are a specific type of drawing. used by the Fabrication Industry to produce steel members. The drawings will specify steel section sizes, length, hole locations etc. Further, they will contain the information for the steel erectors to assemble the steel.

Fabrication Drawings are usually used for 1 off’s or per job/project bases (compared to Manufacturing Drawings).

They are mainly used in:

  1. Structural Steel
  2. Sheet Metal
  3. Architectural Steelwork
  4. Ballustrading/Handrails
  5. Stairs

How do we produce a set of Fabrication Drawings

Our input information

We will produce a 3D model based on the Structural Engineers in conjunction with the architect’s drawings. The structural engineers’ drawings state the steel sizes along with details of relevant connections. The architect’s drawings show the steel setting out and steel levels.

Our Steel Detailing Process

At Jensen Consulting we use Autodesk Advance Steel as our preferred steel detailing CAD software package. Our steel detailers work closely with fabricators, architects, structural engineers and installers to guaranty a successful project. We produce a full set of fabrication drawings for every project which include:

What drawing to we submit

JC offers a full set of Fabrication Drawings for a range of industries. We believe that in order to produce good quality fabrication that will enable an excellent installation on site a certain amount of coordination is required between all parties involved. We are used to coordinating with steel manufacturers, architects and structural engineers to create General Assembly Drawings and the subsequent detailed drawings showing connections, holes etc. Our service prides itself on working closely with all parties involved to ensure any queries get raised and answered prior to fabrication commences. We are therefore always willing to visit the site should this be of advantage.

Single Part Drawings

Single part drawings are workshop drawings that show details of one part such as an end plate or a single beam etc. The drawings are usually presented on a small sheet such as A4.

These drawings should basically show sufficient information for the material cutting.

The steel detailer should include the following information. (They should however not show more information than is required.) :

  • Material Specification
  • Linear Dimensions
  • Angular Dimensions
  • Hole Dimensions
  • Section/Plate Size
  • Weight
  • Developed Sheet (if applicable)

General Arrangement Drawings

General arrangement drawings (GA drawings) show the complete model or an extract to convey the full design intend in a very clear manner. A GA Drawing will typically include an Isometric View (3D View), plan views (from top), elevation views and section views.

The drawing needs to include sufficient views to negate any assumptions that could be made.

The drawings are usually the basis for the first approval process by the Structural Engineer and Architect.

These drawings should basically show sufficient information for the fitters to assemble fix all the Assemblies together.

The steel detailer should include the following information. (They should however not show more information than is required.) :

  • Assembly Numbers
  • Dimensioned Grid
  • Angular Dimensions of Assembly positions
  • Weight
  • Levels
  • General Material Specification
  • General Finish Specification
  • Connection Design

The above 3 drawing types are the minimum a competent Steel Detailing Service should provide. We offer additional information such as a range of lists (Bolt Lists, Drawing List, Single Parts List, Plate List), NC Files and a 3D BIM Model.
