Never Played with CAD before? Need a reliable 3D modeling software trusted by many?
CAD is like everything else in life, garbage in garbage out. The right tools can go along way. We have over 50 different CAD tools to get our parts ready for our skilled machinists. Not all CAD has been created equal, sometimes you have to move around in between several or more to get metal manipulating not just the way we want, but detailed in the specs. Everything looks good in CAD, until its time to make it, and make it to exact specs most of the time -+.005. That’s one of your hairs!
“Design for Manufacturing“, this little fragment of a sentence has cost our world dearly.
When components are designed for a particular machine, the engineer using CAD can dance around certain limitations allowing huge times savings and cost as well.
When engineering components without machines process capabilities in mind, you are setting up yourself and company for failure.
Know your equipment, talk to your fabricators, and plan your time wisely, when hard parts are made quick,, it gets sloppy and expensive.
3D slash, its not what you’d use to build rockets, most of us aren’t going to do that anyways. Its fun and has a ton of use full purposes, and can be a good starting software for learning how to get the CAD process in motion.
Great work flow, powerful software made by one of or the largest CAD design company in the world. Feature rich and has generative design, FEA plus a ton of other very useful, time saving hands down easiest solutions. Personal favorite and a go to all the time.
