Design and production
Engineering at the interface of design and production. A good design integrates all aspects of design and engineering and combines these into a holistic concept. The development and integration of concepts and production techniques is what Eigenraam Engineering has in mind. Thereby well thought out, balanced and producible designs are developed in which interests of all parties are represented.

By capturing design, engineering and production drawings in parametric models a high level of efficiency can be reached. This requires to make aspects specific but remain flexible and results not only in useful computer models, it also tunes collaborations and creates understanding between participating parties. Thereby the overall process becomes faster, more clear and mistakes are minimized.
Especially for repetitive business activity within the manufacturing environment Eigenraam Engineering is developing a service that is called Redoit. This provides access to product specific tools that save time to without having the purchase specialist software packages. For examples quotations, order list and data for production can be generated. Also numeric analysis is part of the possibilities. Once a basic model has been established functionalities can be added later to further decrease required time and cost. Soon more information will follow.

Eigenraam Engineering was founded in 2015 by Peter Eigenraam. Initially providing structural engineering services. Natural interest in manufacturability and parametric modelling has broadened my services towards all-round engineering. Within Eigenraam Engineering I combine professional practice and theory. Beside engineering I teach structural mechanics at the Faculty of Architecture and the Build Environment of the Delft University of Technology. There I lecture in topics varying between theory and structural design. Thereby I combine fundamental knowledge and innovation with the opportunities and limitation of professional practice. Through experience in research and design I am able to contribute to projects which are still in a phase where many unanswered questions remain. Within my work as lecturer, researcher and engineer I make extensive use of computer simulation and modelling. For example using parametric modelling and FEM. Since 2015 I have collaborated with architects, contractors, structural and facade engineers, researchers and manufacturers. Thereby I am acquainted with the interests and wishes of these parties. I aim to align those aspects where possible in order to develop balanced designs. Within the complexity of daily practice it is often unclear who represents this role. Next to professional interest in manufacturability I am active with the refurbishment of my own and other people’s houses. There, I often use skills gained from furniture making and woodworking which I enjoy in my free time.
