software development & customization
what to expect
Much more than simply “coding” we pride ourselves on delivering custom software solutions in the context of your business requirements. Whether that be a simple time-saving macro to eliminate repetitive tasks or the integration of your CAD software to other business systems, let SolidCAD’s development team help you better leverage your investment in technology and optimize workflows.
Even if you do not have a programming project in mind, we welcome the opportunity to talk about your current processes because we have found that many companies are simply unaware of the automation possibilities.
Not often does CAD software work perfectly out of the box. The user environment, standards of drafting, modeling, and producing output from CAD typically requires some degree of customization. Our professional services team can assess, develop, and implement customization – including user profiles, workspaces, partial menus, enterprise menus and streamline setup process within large network environments.
Custom software we have developed for our clients include:
- Linking CAD models to external data sources
- Exchange of Bill of Materials (BOM) between CAD and ERP
- Macro to extract coordinates into Microsoft Excel
- Automatically export CAD drawings to PDF/DWF on Vault Release
- Automatic export of CAD data to other file formats on save
- Batch print and conversion applications
- Custom report generation
- Customized vault upload utility to facilitate implementation of Autodesk Vault
- HSM CAM post-processor customization
