  • Autodesk Inventor: Get A Different Perspective

    In this modern age of software, it seems that there is a specific software or tool for just about anything, but our main asset for accomplishing our CAD work is still our eyes. The way we view things has a major impact on our workflows.

    CAD work

    The common navigation tools inside Autodesk Inventor can become second nature. There are many ways to go about navigating around a model and every user has his preferences. Some use the Navigation Bar, some use the View Cube, some use the F keys or the mouse wheel just to name a few. Out of all the navigation options we have one command is more than often left out and that is Perspective View.

    Why using the Perspective View?

    Perspective View projects the model’s view to a vanishing point adding perspective and parallax in the scene. This gives a better comprehension of space, depth and volume. This helps create a more realistic and compelling view for any conception. While this effect is used widely for visualization and rendering, most users pass on its most useful asset:  navigation.

    While working in parallel projection (Orthographic) we can work precisely on our model without the distortion of a real-world view. This is where most work is done. But sometimes the geometry we are working on becomes our obstacle. One might have to work inside of something requiring creating hide situations on some parts to access the working area or create section views to access very small space in between geometry.

    These situations require the creation of work planes, adding extra sketches in our model, creating and managing view representations or just plainly utilizing commands such as Slice Graphics repetitively. All these manipulations are redundant and can soon become an irritant in a day-to-day routine. Here comes perspective to the rescue. Perspective view has a ghost behavior that enables the camera to go through geometry.

     

    You need to select a face inside an assembled drive shaft’s keyway? 

    Not a problem, just toggle Perspective on and navigate through the gearbox, gears and bearing to select the face you want. Simple!

    The images below show how we can go through the objects to select the inside face of a keyway without any other manipulation than a simple Zoom.

    Selecting a face with Perspective View
    Selecting a face with Perspective View
    What about working in a tight space? 

    Once again toggle Perspective on and navigate to the desired position.

    The image below shows the same viewpoint, one orthographic and the second in perspective. Obviously, the perspective view offers much more headroom with a better visual comprehension.

    orthographic view

    Perspective

     

    Here are my extra 3 tips for easier navigation of the Perspective View:

    1. While navigating in perspective view it is a good practice to select a model or a feature so that selection becomes the center of interest. This will make the navigation focused to that selection.

    2. The default zoom factor of the mouse wheel scroll is intended for broad movement. While in perspective, the dolly zoom might be a better companion. You can press F3 to activate this zoom on the fly or assign this zoom behavior to the mouse wheel in your preferences in Inventor 2021.

    3. To adjust the field of view of your perspective press Ctrl+Shift+F3 and click and drag in your viewport, you will notice that this increase or decreases your field of view. You can go from almost orthographic to a super wide-angle view with this option.

    Don’t get stuck in a sterile square world, push your horizon, widen your perspective and be more efficient!

    How a CMMS System Can Increase your Business’s ROI and Uptime

    Have you been tasked to minimize your equipment downtimeincrease asset condition visibility and spare parts?  If so, this can be a daunting task for an assetheavy organization to move to a more proactive maintenance routine without the proper tools. 

    Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) can accomplish this goal through the following tools: 

    • Increased team collaboration via application based commenting system 
    • Accurate reports to help you plan and optimize maintenance plans and parts availability 
    • A single source of truth will allow a business to avoid duplicate work orders 

    In the recent 2020 Benchmarks & Best Practices for Maintenance Management Report, facilities using an effective CMMS have reported seeing 88% cost savings ranging from tens of thousands to millions of dollars. 

     

    4 ways a CMMS can improve your business: 

    1. Reduce Equipment Downtime 

    Lowering equipment downtime is a common objective in any asset-heavy organization. Typically manufacturers experience an average of 800 hours of unplanned downtime annually. These incidents can take a heavy toll and result in an average cost of $17,000. In some industries, downtime can have a massive impact, costing your business $50,000 per minute, which translates to $3 million per hour. 

     Equipment failure, human error, and low visibility into asset conditions are some of the reasons for these incidents. With a CMMS solution, you can avoid these unplanned downtimes by replacing physical paperwork and application silos by introducing a single source of truth to track: 

    • Workflow and work orders 
    • Asset and physical equipment conditions 
    • Accurate supplies counts (parts, materials, etc.)
    • Service schedules and invoicing 

    Having instant access to this data can help you build more proactive maintenance plans for your assets and equipment. Enhanced reporting on these metrics will allow your team to analyze failures and, in turn, minimize future incidents. 

     

    2. Maximize Labour Force Efficiency 

    Maintenance managers need direct access to PM plans, asset documentation, and part supply info. Without this information, issues can arise, such as duplicate work orders and increased overtime costs.  These are the hallmarks of a reactive maintenance cycle vs. a proactive approach. With the proper CMMS tools, a technician will gain insight into the following: 

    • Create, evaluate, prioritize, delegate, and monitor work orders from any system by managers and operators. When a work order is done, they will also receive up-to-the-minute updates. 
    • When there is a new job order, technicians will be notified immediately, and valuable information such as repair histories, checklists, asset manuals are easily accessible. 
    • Users can plan proactive maintenance by setting up triggers for time, use, or condition-based maintenance. 
    • Technicians can add notes immediately onsite, mark a job as complete, and let others know a specific asset’s status. 

    With all this data readily available, maintenance managers can make more informed choices regarding labor costs and efficiency. Creating a comprehensive preventive maintenance plan becomes a reality with a CMMS system, which saves your organization downtime and lowers costs. 

     

    3. Extend the Life of your Assets and Raise Their Reliability 

    To improve the efficiency and reliability of maintenance operations, creating a preventive maintenance plan is necessary. Predictive analytics yield a tenfold return on investment, according to one study, and results in savings of 30 percent to 40 percent. Organizations that configure the bulk of their Assets in a CMMS report significant improvements in equipment reliability. 

    A CMMS system places all of your PM dashboards and data in one place. Because of this, maintenance planners see the big picture and improve their KPIs via the following tools: 

    • Generation of custom reports on asset downtime and costs to improve maintenance plan 
    • Quick access to all related Asset documentation such as work order history, required safety equipment, and failure codes 
    • Realtime tracking of metrics (e.g., mileage, gauge readings, and operational hours) 
    • Integration with other systems for business-wide collaboration 

    All this functionality in your hands will lead to the automation of maintenance plans and insight into improvement areas. 

     

     4. Upgrade your Inventory Management Tools 

    Maintaining your MRO stock (maintenance, repair, and operating supply) is essential for reducing downtime. Your technicians need to be able to order parts easily to complete repairs on time. MRO supply can be costly. In many cases, MRO accounts can make up as much as 40% of a businesss annual procurement budget. 

    A modern CMMS tool can assist with inventory management, save time on repairs and reduce duplicate orders by: 

    • Providing realtime tracking of spare parts and all relevant data (i.e., purchase date, availability, and locations where the part is stored) 
    • Automating purchases of parts to avoid extending downtime on repairs 
    • Reporting on inventory costs, order history, and usage metrics 
    • Notifications sent to Technicians of which parts are required  

    Implementing a CMMS solution can have an immediate positive impact on your equipment uptime and increase your ROI. Moving away from reactive maintenance will result in fewer equipment malfunctions and raise efficiency across the organization.

    How a Localized, Multi-Language CMMS Can Streamline Global Operations

    Any sizeable global corporation that maintains sites worldwide knows how language barriers can negatively impact communication and team productivity. 

    Let’s break this down: If person-to-person communication is difficult, adding a complex tool such as computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) will only exasperate the situation. Many modern CMMS tools are English only, which further hinders an international business’s efficiency. 

    Today’s Covid-19 reality adds another layer to this, with most of the workforce working remotely. Due to these challenges, many global corporations have begun rolling out localized or multi-language tools, including CMMS. 

    Key Asset Management Issues Businesses That Lower Efficiency 
    • Not focusing on high-priority maintenance jobs 
    • A lack of proactive maintenance leads to safety issues and unplanned downtime 
    • Communication breakdown between teams that causes delays 
    • Spare parts inventory shortage due to incomplete stock tracking tools 

    If you add language barriers to the mix for multi-site CMMS users, this adds increased challenges: 

    • Incomplete international data due to English only tools 
    • Training issues lead to lowered understanding of the CMMS capabilities 
    • Onsite technicians having issues completing work because they can’t easily access critical information 
    • Smaller tool user base due to language barriers 

    All these issues can have a substantial negative impact on efficiency and team communication. The accuracy of missioncritical asset data can drop, which leads to increased unplanned downtime. 

    How A Localized CMMS Application Can Help Your Global Business 

    A CMMS tool with the ability to localize to your region will provide the ability to translate specific language, cultural and numerical requirements to a more familiar format. These can affect the following: 

    • Language 
    • Dialect (i.e., Quebec vs. France) 
    • Legal requirements 
    • Numeric, date, and time formats 
    • Currency 

    A Localized CMMS will remove layer of communication issues that will increase data completeness and clarity and ease access. 

    4 Benefits of a Localized, Multi-site CMMS Tool 
    1. Modern User Interface 

    A complicated legacy CMMS interface can be tough to navigate and cause frustration due to: 

    • Unclear levels of user rights and privileges 
    • Unintuitive navigation of workflows 
    • Ineffective user training sessions 

    These factors can lead to lower user adoption of the tool and will negatively impact the business. 

    An easy-to-use modern CMMS will alleviate these issues as training sessions become more effective and increase user adoption. 

    2. Native Multi-Language Support 

    Current CMMS platforms are typically only available in English or provide a reduced set of localization capabilities. 

    powerful multi-site CMMS like Accruent’s Maintenance Connection provides multi-language and does it with a single database.  Users can enter data efficiently using their local language into a single source of truth.  Everyone using the platform is accessing the same data, leading to increased accuracy of data with no need to sync to different environments.  

    3. Mobile and Remote Access for Today’s Reality 

    This year will highlight the need for all of your tools to offer Remote and Mobile access. This is further confirmed by a 2017 ARC Advisory Group global report indicated that 50% of technicians use a mobile device for work orders, and this number is only growing. 

    Onsite Technicians that have to rely on wi-fi and laptops will lead to delays in communication and reduced quality of data. 

    This is why an international business needs a CMMS tool with full mobile access. 

    A fully localized mobile application will allow on-site technicians to improve their efficiency and quality of work by helping them: 

    • Find missioncritical asset documentation quickly 
    • Process work orders remotely and in real-time 
    • Order parts in the field to reduce delays and confirm parts availability 
    • See the entire Asset maintenance history 
    • Provide immediate changes to work order status 

    They can accomplish all this in their local language, enabling smoother maintenance experience with increased effectiveness. In a recent US-based survey conducted by Maintenance Connection, one customer estimated they had saved $1 million due to this kind of mobile CMMS implementation. 

    4. A CMMS Tool That Spans Multiple Sites and Regions 

    CMMS suites that only allow for single site with limited integrations lead to unstandardized data silos that can cause discrepancies and slow down team interactions. 

    If your CMMS tool can handle multiple sites, the user base pulls data from a single source of truth quickly and accurately. Access to these documents can be controlled effortlessly via centralized permissions for improved security. 

    A modern multi-site and multi-national CMMS will provide these benefits: 

    • Centralized data  
    • Global reporting tools 
    • Standardization of data by removing the need for information silos 
    • Increased data security and safety 
    • Realtime status of work orders across the globe 
    • Full integration for engineering document management tools such as Accruent’s Meridian 

    Features like this can reduce data input errors, standardize workflows, and make for easy user privilege administration in a centralized environment.

    SolidCAD releases new configuration product, Variant

    TORONTO, ON October 5, 2020 – Today, SolidCAD, Canada’s largest professional services company and Autodesk Platinum Partner, announces that they have developed and released their newest product, Variant. Variant is a web-based product configurator that is built on the Autodesk Forge platform and was developed for manufacturing customers that want to streamline their quotation and design-to-manufacturing processes. Just last week, SolidCAD announced that they became Autodesk’s newest Forge Certified System Integrator, and this week they are excited to publicly announce the availability of Variant.

    Variant goes well beyond Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ), where a user (whether it is a manufacturers internal sales team, a prospective customer or dealer) can make product selections almost anywhere with an intuitive web interface. The results include a 3D viewable model, associated bill of material and professional quotation.

    Variant is not only a product configuration tool but is also integrated into Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle PLM as well as Autodesk Vault, making the product a crucial part of an overall workflow. It not only provides sales quotations, but also offers the necessary information for downstream ordering and manufacturing.

    Customers that currently use Inventor’s iLogic feature or would benefit from doing so are excellent candidates for Variant as it enables them to provide those design variations to users on the web without the need of or knowledge of Inventor.

    Kevin Robinson, Sr. Business Strategy Manager at Autodesk added, “Design Automation is a powerful enabler for manufacturing customers, and we are excited to see how SolidCAD is extending the value of Autodesk Inventor designs containing iLogic with Forge. Variant looks like a fantastic cloud offering to help connect engineering to sales, and then to the end customer.”

    “Once again, SolidCAD is providing manufacturing companies with best in class tools” says Mark Gartner, National Director of Manufacturing at SolidCAD. “Many manufactures have aspirations of a product configurator and understand the benefits it will bring to their organization. Many have found that traditional CPQ products come up short, and most Engineer to Order (ETO) products are too expensive for the return on investment. This is the reason we developed Variant.”

    To learn more about this product, visit Variant at https://www.solidcad.ca/variant/ and register for SolidCAD’s upcoming Virtual Process Improvement event here: https://solidcad.swoogo.com/variant to get an understanding of the product firsthand.
