Support for multiple CAD formats: ConfigLink currently supports SOLIDWORKS, Pro/ENGINEER, Autodesk Inventor, and Solid Edge files. Users can use a single license to configure data from multiple CAD systems/formats.
Reduce Design time: Dramatically reduces the engineering time to create custom designs.
Increases profitability: Automating the most time consuming part of the ETO/CTO process viz. generation of 3D & 2D results in significant cost savings; hence, increased profitability.
Lower CAD Resource Utilization: Since ConfigLink does not need access to the CAD license continuously, significant cost savings result from a lower CAD resource utilization.
Lower maintenance cost: ConfigLink does not store the configuration data (rules) in an external database or file, but in the CAD model itself. This tight integration lowers the maintenance cost, so prevalently, while using complex databases & files.
Quick response to customer RFQs: Responses to customer queries can be expedited as custom design creation is largely automated, as opposed to manual re-mastering.
Accelerate new product development: Engineering department will have more time to focus on designing new products than creating various configurations of existing design for sales.
