About the Client
Our client operates in the business of designing and manufacturing transportation equipment, where precision and efficiency are paramount. They faced the challenge of generating engineering drawings from 3D CAD models, a task that was not only tedious but also time-consuming. Recognizing the need for a solution that could automate this process, they sought our expertise.
The manufacturing drawing generation is a tedious and time-consuming process. Even if 50% of the drawing generation is automated, its impact on the cycle time reduction in designs going to manufacturing is significant.
The client had successfully integrated our Auto2D tool with NX, a 3D CAD system, and wished to replicate this success with CATIA, another prominent CAD platform. To achieve this, CADVision embarked on a multifaceted project:
During the development and integration phases, several challenges occurred:
To address these challenges, CADVision implemented a robust strategy:
The results of this project were transformational, providing the client with several compelling benefits:
A staggering 90% reduction in the time required for manual drawing creation. The process became significantly more efficient and timely.
An increase in the overall quality of engineering drawings, thanks to the automated and error-free generation.
