Groundbreaking Capabilities to Address the Challenges of Multi-CAD Environments
Unite technology provides organizations with breakthrough capabilities to improve productivity in multi-CAD environments. By allowing users to consolidate CAD systems and collaborate more effectively across systems, Unite Technology reduces redundant work for design teams and enables them to improve product quality, desirability and on-time delivery.
With Unite technology, users can convert data from common CAD systems into Creo data without the need for the original authoring CAD system. Additionally, designers can incorporate CATIA, Siemens NX, and SolidWorks data directly into their designs without creating additional business objects.
The PTC CreoCollaboration Extensions further enhance the capabilities of Unite Technology. These extensions allow designers to quickly and easily integrate updates to non-PTC Creodata seamlessly. Additionally, designers can exchange PTC Creomodels in the most common CAD formats (including CATIA, Siemens NX, and SolidWorks) without the presence of licenses from these software systems.
Features and Benefits
- Reduce the number of CAD platforms and the associated costs
- Increase engineering productivity and IT efficiency
- Enable higher levels of concurrent engineering through effective multi-cad collaboration
- Reduce the need to create and manage neutral file formats
- Support on-time product delivery by ensuring data integrity throughout the design process
Organizations consolidating CAD systems face a number of challenges, including user adoption, training, and the cost of data migration. With Unite technology, organizations can cost-effectively address the challenges of data migration by converting only the parts and parent assemblies they need to modify instead of the entire assembly. This greatly reduces the amount of time and effort organizations need to spend on data migration.
Collaborating early and often with partners using different CAD platforms is a challenge for most organizations due to the manual effort required to incorporate multiple iterations of data. The multi-CAD data exchange capabilities of Unite technology enables organizations to easily overcome this challenge, allowing users to work more efficiently with other internal stakeholders, suppliers, or development partners.
