Basis of the development of PASCAM con@3D is the understanding, that an ever increasing amount of sales is based on individual products, customized to the request of the retail customers. According this trend profound knowledge to design, manufacture and market profitable products is needed on part of manufacturing companies to fulfil the individual customer requests economically. PASCAM is providing the woodworking sector for some time with its main products PASCAM WoodWorks and PASCAM Bea to achieve this goal. As another vital component on this way PASCAM is now presenting PASCAM con@3D.
Consumer markets demand more and more the individualization of products, which is in turn a very demanding task for manufacturing companies to realize this individual, customized customer requests. The economical mastery of the required product complexity and variety behind customized manufacturing, beginning with the order entry at sales, as well as in the design and manufacturing departments, are of crucial significance. Providers on this market have to be able to individually respond to customer requests and present technically cleared offers at the beginning, manufacture the customized products optimized, both in cost and quality and deliver the ordered products on time. To realize an effective and efficient, individualized mass production as a mass customization, it is necessary to offer the customer an individual solution, which is based on the providers side largely on standardized and automated basic models and manufacturing processes.
The product configurator PASCAM con@3D is an application to enable your retail customers or sales staff, which are not qualified to customize and modify genuine SOLIDWORKS® models, to assemble and configure even complex, predefined SOLIDWORKS® files from your catalogue of products, in a correct and efficient way. Modification of the selected SOLIDWORKS® models is only permitted under a restrictive set of rules, defined by your design department with experienced SOLIDWORKS® users.
The PASCAM con@3D product family is being developed to complement the 3D CAD system SOLIDWORKS®, to be used either for a remote controlled, visual order entry or an integrated online interior planning solution. Offering new and undreamt-of possibilities for users in the woodworking sector, sharing manufacturing-oriented SOLIDWORKS® 3D model data with end customers, retailers and suppliers over the Internet, to process orders with fully continuos model data flow right up to the CNC machines.
The added value of PASCAM con@3D for your company lies in improving the competitiveness by:
drastically reducing the time required to create customized offers,
faster response to individual customer requests,
launching only complete and professional offers, regardless of the user qualification at order entry (retail customers or sales staff),
drastically reducing the time required for custom design and engineering,
substantially faster creation of the complete product documentation (3D models, drawings, BOMs, CNC data),
reducing the costs of nonconformity and design errors compared to manually re-designing,
3D visualization of the individual product and
efficiently re-using of model parts and components.
The HTML front-end webservice, provided by PASCAM con@3D as an B2B/B2C software solution can be configured optionally either as an online product configuration or an online interior design/-planning tool in 2D/ 3D views.
This solution is offering new and undreamt-of possibilities for users in the woodworking sector, sharing manufacturing-oriented SOLIDWORKS® 3D model data with end customers, retailers and suppliers over the Internet, to process orders with fully continuos model data flow right up to the CNC machines.
The automation and acceleration in the offering phase, as well as the customized and outsourced design process and the fast order handling up to the unattended CNC manufacturing is the main focus of the interactive PASCAM B2C product configurator PASCAM con@3D.
