5 Ways to Boost SOLIDWORKS® Outcomes with Quote, CAD, and BOM Automation


Why Automation for SOLIDWORKS?

Configuring and customizing complex products can be time-consuming and error-prone. But with the right tools, you can streamline your SOLIDWORKS® workflows, improve accuracy, and create better and more numerous designs in less time.

1. Supercharge Your Designs

Rule-based configuration, automated parts lists, 3D visualization, and CAD file generation can make a meaningful impact on your SOLIDWORKS® workflows. With powerful product configuration and CAD automation, SOLIDWORKS® users can quickly adjust designs to meet customers’ specific requirements. This can lead to an efficiency increase of up to 34%, a sales volume increase of up to 30%, and a profit increase of up to 20%. 

2. Streamline Your Quoting and Pricing Processes

With the right technology, users can also benefit from CPQ (Configure, Price, and Quote) capabilities, enabling them to democratize the ordering and configuration process while creating accurate and professional quotes with ease. This can lead to faster sales cycles, improved pricing accuracy, and increased profitability. It also allows engineers to focus on what they do best: engineering.

3. Save Time on Bill of Materials Outputs

With the ability to generate accurate and up-to-date BOM’s with the click of a button, SOLIDWORKS® users can more easily manage their product designs (and design changes), ensuring that all necessary components are included. This can help streamline the manufacturing process and reduce errors and delays.

A Quick Guide to Design Automation and CAD Customization
CAD (the use of software to aid in the product design processes for visual product configuration) is resource-intensive across multiple dimensions. It’s slow, laborious, and requires more engineering expertise than many manufacturers can afford to allocate. Talk to any engineer, and they’ll tell you the same. Yes, CAD is a major improvement over drawing with […]
