Caddossier for Inventor
More than PDM: Work preparation and manufacturing
PDM is an important tool for increasing productivity. But Caddossier comes standard with a set of integrated productivity tools for work preparation and production. View the tools for your 3D CAD package.
Searching and finding
Searching, finding and reusing your files quickly saves your company time and money. Caddossier comes standard with the following functionalities for this:
- Advanced search options
- Advanced filters
- Favourites and quick access
- Recently opened dossiers and files
- Multi-document interface
- Search and (re)place parts/assemblies in the 3D CAD Package
Reuse & Design copy
Safely copy and reuse your standard machines/projects (assemblies) just like that. Customer-specific items are automatically given new file names. Item numbers for your standard manufactured or purchased parts are not changed. This all, without affecting the original files obviously.
Automatic batch exports
PDF, DWG, DXF, STP, JPG batch exports are fully automatic, including sheet metal flat patterns. Caddossier goes through the active assembly, automatically generates the desired files and links them to the bill of materials in Caddossier.
Only want to make DWGS and STP files for the underlying milling work for a specific assembly? No Problem, with Caddossier it’s up to you what you export. The Excel lists, STP, DWG and PDF files can all be e-mailed directly to your suppliers from Digidossier 365.
Automatic file naming
Automatically generate names for your 3D CAD files, based on your own naming convention. Naming conventions include: categories, order numbers, item numbers, version number and so on.
Everything that is useful to you for creating computer-generated file names. This functionality saves you many hours of work during the drawing and design process. It also creates a consistent naming structure throughout the whole engineering department.
Bills of materials and work preparation
Easily filter and group in the graphical bills of materials. You can generate the following, just like that:
- Breakdowns of manufactured and purchased parts
- Production Routings and specify the manufacturing steps
- Exports to Excel or XML for ERP
- Exports to all needed neutral files for you suppliers
- Individual or group based exports
