Parametric CAD slashes design time

Paul Boughton

A new release of the Synthesis R17 parametric CAD software is now available. This package enables new custom CAD drawing sets to be generated and displayed in seconds using up to 3000 variables.

When the customer approves the drawing for sales purposes, it is also sent to manufacturing as a production order and the parts can be manufactured.

Synthesis R17 automates the design and drafting process. Errors are greatly reduced, thereby saving time and money. Drawings are created instantly via Microsoft Office products such as Excel, Access or Internet Explorer.

Synthesis has also worked with Swedish Tacton for the configuration of the many variables and options for elevator design. Synthesis is claimed to be unique in that it combines the best of advanced parametrics and many options for product configuration in a high return-on-investment package for elevator manufacturing companies.

For manufacturers looking for proven tools to improve productivity and sales, the Synthesis CAD and sale Configurator, combined with Synthesis parametrics, is an excellent way to achieve tremendous cost savings as well as a sales advantage.

According to Tim Paxton, president of the Synthesis Company, Tremendous cost savings are achieved for manufacturers which automate and standardise both the sales and custom configuration and concurrent CAD drawing creation process.

"Customers benefit from: a more efficient sales process; an enhanced ability to sell complex products and services; higher quality quotes and orders; quicker time-to-market; and vastly reduced selling costs. Customers can make changes in real time and can confirm product orders for complex manufactured products via notebook computersan intranet or online. Sales drawings are delivered online and production CAD drawings can be forwarded directly to the factory floor."

Synthesis' parametric CAD software has already been chosen by large companies such as 3MABBThyssen KruppSiemensUS FilterCanton ElevatorThyssen Krupp ElevatorUS ElevatorEsco Elevatorand subsidiaries of Mitsubishi Elevator for use in automated elevator configuration and automated drawing generation worldwide.
