Design faster with 2D and 3D CAD improve design efficiency
16th Sept 2020, 11.00 AM – 12.00 PM

CAD software for 2D drafting can be used to draft designs more quickly and with greater precision, without using stencils and technical drawing instruments. 2D CAD software also allows users to document and annotate drawings with text, dimensions, leaders and tables.

Adding 3D to the development process helps companies enact changes that help enhance quality and performance, reduce costs, increase innovation, and improve productivity. Just like digital design hasn’t fully replaced pencil and paper, 3D CAD hasn’t fully replaced 2D. In fact, they work better together.There are a couple options for mixed CAD systems that allow you to experience the advantages of both 2D and 3D software while moving at your own pace.

Join our specialists Thandavan & Prabhu as they discuss why associative connections between 2D and 3D platforms allow you to choose the right tool for every job, allowing you to be more productive while producing the best outcomes.

Learn how you can improve design efficiency, connect 2D and 3D workflows, and get more from your models!

Leverage your 3D CAD Models to Produce Better, Faster Quotes
14th Oct 2020, 11.00 AM – 12.00 PM

With limited resources and a growing quantity of requests for quotes (RFQs) from customers outsourcing manufacturing, lead times for responding to potential customers are increasing. Speed, accuracy, and consistency are the three biggest challenges faced by cost estimators across all discrete manufacturing industry verticals.

The first to respond to an RFP is often the company that ultimately wins the business. The challenge is not just in turning around the proposal quickly, however—it’s also making sure that it’s quoted accurately so the business you win is profitable as well.

Accuracy and speed are both difficult to come by when trying to precisely match your customer’s requirements to the complex systems you deliver.
