Go a step further and take advantage of our expert CAD implementation consulting services. Ensure that the way your construction department works with Autodesk CAD software is optimally set up and that all employees proceed in a structured manner.


Challenges in CAD Construction

The daily work routine is very busy and although weak points are known, there is no time to tackle them in a structured way. Do you also know these challenges? With our consulting for CAD implementation, we provide a remedy. Thanks to our many years of experience, we recognize common sources of errors as well as challenges and help you to master them successfully.

No Written Construction Guidelines

Often, certain standards and procedures have become established in the company over time, but are not written down and tested for their effectiveness and efficiency.


Lack of Employees CAD Knowledge

Employees do not know the construction guidelines or do not know them completely. The training of new employees costs time and increases the potential for errors.


Uncoordinated Collaboration

If several employees are working on the same design, the lack of CAD guidelines makes collaboration more difficult - more effort for agreements, duplicate work and rework.

Postprocessing of Errors

Errors are detected too late and have to be reworked in a costly and time-consuming manner.



Reasons For Your CAD Implementation Consulting

Through our CAD implementation service offering, we support your daily construction work. Get to know the most important 5 reasons:

Standardized Database

With a standardized construction methodology or the use of model-based definitions (MDB), you create a uniform basis for construction and production information. This minimizes errors and prevents costly rework - in construction and production.

Quality Enhancement

The definition of uniform standards and CAD guidelines ensures high-quality results and serves as a basis for the quality inspection of external construction data.

Time and Cost Savings

The obligatory specifications ensure structured and fast work. The early detection of error sources reduces expensive rework in all disciplines involved.

Efficient Work

The work of each individual is facilitated by the uniform and clear structure of the construction and the consistent reuse of parts. Collaboration on a project is optimized by structured work and the traceable changes.

Knowledge Transfer and Know-how Backup

The CAD guidelines are accessible to all employees and serve as a basis for training new employees. Thus, the company standard is documented and the internal know-how is secured.

CAD Implementation - Modular Approach

Together with you, we develop a perfect construction environment in which your employees can work in a structured and efficient manner. For this purpose, we offer three different service packages:

Model-Based Definition (MBD) - Concept Consulting

Use Autodesk CAD's Model-Based Definition (MBD) tools to make your 3D models the source of all data that forms the basis for all product creation processes. Add dimensions, annotations, form and position tolerances, and other manufacturing information to parts and assemblies. The integrated tolerance generator shows you potential problems, errors and other important information.

CAD Guidelines - Basic Module

Together with your key users, we define rules for daily work in a full-day workshop. This includes the use of templates, the definition of a naming scheme, the definition of the working method for multi-user projects as well as the uniform structure of sketches, components, assemblies, drawing derivations and standard & purchased parts.  

The result is a set of rules with mandatory requirements and fixed guidelines, tips and hints for more effective work, as well as the presentation of potential challenges.

CAD Guidelines - Methodology Module

You get the most comprehensive support with our Methodology Module. It covers the topics of the basic module as well as the development of your CAD design methodology. In a three-day workshop, for which we will prepare ourselves optimally with data provided by you, among other things, the structural design of company-specific components, the location of coordinate systems, the functional design for central parametric control and workflows for your further processes. The results are finally documented for standardized handling.
