CAD-Automation

Generate individual parts, assemblies and drawings based on rules - no more duplicates, instead maximum transparency

The VDMA has determined that the throughput time for customer orders in construction has increased by around 35% compared to 2007. Unfortunately, it’s going in the wrong direction! At the same time, almost half of the VDMA companies exclusively manufacture customer-specific products – mostly in small batch sizes.

So there is pressure to act. Accelerate your design process with CAD automation : what used to take you a week now takes you just a day.

Thanks to CAD automation, CAD data is created automatically. Your advantage in the work process – away from “clone-and-own” towards a configuration at runtime: You no longer create duplicates through copies that can no longer be found later. You are independent of “head monopolies” of individual colleagues or employees.

You gain massive competitive advantages – firstly through the high speed of order processing for customer-specific and tailor-made products – it’s about factors between five and 20! And secondly, because you can already provide your sales colleagues with 3D models or drawings during the acquisition phase very quickly!

Conclusion: CAD automation succeeds with speedmaxx: You generate, among other things, all the production data required for order processing fully automatically! This includes, among other things, 3D individual parts, 3D assemblies, production and assembly drawings or instructions, parts lists, order and master data. Your sales department is enthusiastic – the customers too.

By the way: Solutions for generating production data are mainly operated on CAD workstations and application servers. In terms of methodology, it involves, among other things, knowledge-based engineering (KBE), supplemented by the rule-based remote control of CAD systems in various operating modes. Operation together with the SAP variant configurators LO VC or IPC is also possible.

The following CAD systems can be controlled remotely based on rules – also in batch mode: Autodesk Inventor®, CATIA V5®, CREO®, Pro/ENGINEER®, NX® and SOLIDWORKS®.

The combination of a product configurator and CAD automation is a design configurator.
