In order stay competitive in the continuously growing global market, design engineers need to create high quality
and innovative products in an efficient way. Sketching is an important part of the design process that helps
designers during creative phase of the process and helps them develop inventions in a cost effective, fast and
flexible way. In this study, sketching and CAE tools (Shape optimization) are used to redesign an old component
of a telescopic hydraulic cylinder with an objective of reducing its mass while maintaining its performance and
functionality. The results show that the final product that is derived by using the above mentioned methods has
been reduced by 30.77% of the original weight while ensuring normal operation under the given constraints.
