Combining the latest carbon fiber… Read more

Unified CAD Assembly Design Environment

Many designers working on large assemblies sometimes encounter strong disconnects between how they’d ideally like to handle their CAD assembly file and how their chosen CAD platform encourages them — or even forces them — to work. With traditional CAD design systems, which construct assemblies out of separate part files, it’s nearly impossible to make… Read more

Fundamentally Better Way to Design in 3D for Equipment Manufacturers Today’s engineers are involved in a design process that incorporates feedback from other departments and customers throughout a product’s lifecycle. Often this requires shorter delivery times from bidding proposals through to manufacturing. They need to start new projects quickly and iterate through many design alternatives… Read more

Example of aluminum extrusions for structural design

All extrusion profiles used in structural design are not created equal, nor are the designs of the structures made up of the extrusions. Nevertheless, many CAD solutions on the market today provide standard tools for the design of aluminum extrusions and the construction of the structures made up of extrusions. On the other hand, CAD… Read more
