Do you own Autodesk's Product Design & Manufacturing Collection?
If your answer is No, and you are in the manufacturing industry, and do a lot of 2D and 3D design work then you should be taking a look. Ask us for a demonstration.
If your answer is Yes. Do you what you have and are entitled too?
Such as we all know PD&MC comes with Inventor and AutoCAD, you may be across the whole AutoCAD specialised toolsets. If you are not, your "AutoCAD" license has a whole lot more than you thought.
AutoCAD Plant 3D
AutoCAD Map 3D
AutoCAD Raster Design
Not just your Average vanilla AutoCAD, lots and lots of productivity toolsets.
Ok, so what else?
Vault Basic, Vault is a product data management software that allows you to manage your design files, version control. intelligent attribute and property searching (That's just basic)
CAD-embedded finite element analysis software
Inventor Nastran® delivers finite element analysis (FEA) tools for engineers and analysts. Simulation covers multiple analysis types, such as linear and nonlinear stress, dynamics, and heat transfer.
Inventor® CAM software simplifies the machining workflow with CAD-embedded 2.5-axis to 5-axis milling, turning, and mill-turn capabilities.
Inventor® Nesting software helps you optimize yield from flat raw material. Easily compare nesting studies to optimize efficiency and reduce costs, and export 3D models or DXF™ files of the completed nest for cutting path generation.
Use Navisworks® project review software to improve BIM (Building Information Modelling) co-ordination.
Combine design and construction data into a single model.
Identify and resolve clash and interference problems before construction.
Aggregate data from multiple trades to better control outcomes.
