CAD Experience - Maximum Productivity in The CAD System

Use the potential of your CAD system and increase your efficiency in engineering. CAD Experience helps you to use the full power of your system and creates change stability and traceability.

CAD Experience - Design Methodology And More

Extensive use of CAD functionality and consistent design methodologies ensure consistent, high-quality, reusable CAD data. With CAD Experience you optimize the way your engineering department work and increase the quality of the design.

More Efficiency in Your CAD design - With CAD Experience

CAD Experience means taking full advantage of the available features and tools in your CAD system to achieve more effective and higher quality results. You create change stability to ensure the integrity of your models, as well as traceability to document the steps of the creation process and optimize collaboration between all participants.  


The foundations for this are an adapted design methodology, high-performance assemblies and effective part reuse. Further building blocks can be calculations and simulations, which ensure more quality in the design.


CAD Design Challenges

Powerful software is not enough to solve design challenges. You also need to get the most out of your CAD capabilities to meet the challenges of your day-to-day business. Do you know these situations?

Time and Budget Pressures

Customers expect low prices and fast delivery. The design must therefore be implemented on time and within the specified budget.

Faulty Design

Errors in the design must be found and corrected in a time-consuming process. If they are discovered too late, the result is costly rework.


An end-to-end configuration process links the various disciplines in your company. Save time and resources and develop your products across mechanical and electrical engineering.

Extensive Training

New employees need to learn about different projects and understand different processes or construction methods - a lot of time goes by before they can be productive.

CAD Experience - The Plus For Product Development And Order Processing

Both for successful product development and for subsequent order processing, it is crucial to master the software system with its diverse CAD functions. For this, the possibilities of the system must be recognized and used.  A key point is the unified design methodology with standardized components and parts, as well as customized libraries of standard and purchased parts - including the necessary documentation. Tolerance analyses, checking 3D models against specifications and simulations are further, but not conclusive, aspects of your CAD experience.


There are good reasons why you should rely on CAD Experience!

Efficient Design

Your design benefits, for example, from defined standards and design methods, part reuse and high-performance assemblies. Change stability and traceability allow fast and correct adjustments.

Error Minimization

The system automatically checks for compliance with design guidelines and specifications - no incomplete and misleading CAD documents leading to errors and queries.

Production Optimization

Standardizing CAD data allows parts reduction and manufacturing conformity. By meeting the corresponding specifications, the manufacturing process is accelerated and the error rate is minimized.

Quality Improvement

Consistent standards and automated testing lead to a significant increase in design quality and early error detection.

Familiarization and Collaboration Made Easy

Clear, written specifications and consistent procedures make it easy for the design team to work together. This makes it much easier to hand off tasks to other employees or even new colleagues.

Time Saving All Along the Line

Whether through the elimination of time-consuming model checks, the minimization of errors, more efficient production or faster training, the time required throughout the entire process is significantly reduced.

Autodesk CAD Software

Realize your projects with Autodesk CAD software - the industry leader for faster and better results.  With Inventor or AutoCAD, CIDEON offers two popular CAD programs.
