Multi-CAD Design

Working in a Multi-CAD Environment

Few manufacturers have the luxury of a homogenous CAD environment anymore. Even within their own firewalls, companies use an average of 2.7 CAD systems (PTC study). But beyond your own firewall, you have customers to impress, supply chain dynamics to comply with, and legacy CAD systems that hold old designs. And everyone’s using a different CAD system. Explore the challenges of working in a multi-CAD environment, the PTC solutions to address these challenges, and how these solutions could meet your needs.
