  • For 1997  (post sale to K2, to move production to Bozeman)
Garuda     CAD Technical & Promotional Drawings
The tents were created with computer-aided-design software (GENERIC
CADD, and later in Autocad LT).  Several hundred to a thousand+ hours
of design work and multiple CAD drawings underlie each tent model
moved through to production - each tent owner relies upon just the one
they are in.

A series of drawings were drafted for each tent:

  • Schematic:Top, Side, Front, Rear and 3-D views
  • Manual Graphics: 2-D drawings for the User Manual orientation
  • Exploded View: construction drawings of each piece and  component
  • Patterns: marker of every pattern piece
  • Pattern Layout: marker orientation and alignment per fabric type
  • Zipper Markup: length and alignment patterns of zippers and pulls

Additional specification drawings were drafted for the cross-model
components, accessories, manufacturing processes, and marketing
