Tooling Design and Manufacture: Best Practices
  • Associative tool design: Use a range of flexible and associative modeling techniques to enable concurrent development of product designs and tooling designs. Allow non-expert CAD users to quickly prepare tooling designs.
  • Rich 2D/3D manufacturing documentation delivery: Dynamically generate accurate and on-demand rich visual shop-floor work instructions.
  • Integral manufacturing data management: Enable enterprise management of manufacturing data and deliverables. Provide a common central repository with a comprehensive data model supporting product, process and resources.
