PTC/USER World 2009: Maintaining Strength and Competitiveness During the Downturn

Moers, Germany and Pitsford, NY – June 2009: This year at PTC/USER World 2009 visitors were facing some of the biggest economic challenges in the history of the event. Having the right software in place, and getting the most out of it, was more vital than ever. CAD Schroer, the global engineering solutions provider and PTC/USER Premier Partner, demonstrated its Pro/ENGINEER®-integrated drafting and factory layout software, emphasising that now is the time to optimise processes and cut pre-sales overheads to maintain strength and competitiveness.

Watch MCADCafe-s Interview with CAD Schroer at PTC/USER World 2009:


At its technical presentation entitled “Factory and Process Plant Layout and Visualization” CAD Schroer showed how customers easily integrate their Pro/ENGINEER® models in factory layouts created with MPDS4, a tool that addresses the need of turnkey installation providers and Owner/Operators to deploy 3D quickly and effectively in the pre-sales stage.

“We spoke to many interested Owner/Operators in areas as diverse as aerospace, steam turbines, construction and farm machinery providers, who often try to use their existing 3D software to model their own factories or the process lines into which they need to integrate the machinery designed with Pro/ENGINEER®,” says Bill Wilkins, CAD Schroer’s Sales Manager. “These systems are best-in-class for product design, but not intended to handle large scale process installations with hundreds of thousands of components. When people try, models quickly become too big and unwieldy and have to be broken up. MPDS4 specialises in large-scale design and can handle huge amounts of data. The software allows customers to easily integrate existing 3D models, making it the ideal companion for Pro/ENGINEER® users.”


Our customers use MPDS4 with FACTORY LAYOUT to quickly model their factories and customer installations by including and positioning Pro/ENGINEER models, routing piping, steelwork, ducting, cabling, HVAC and intelligent connectable equipment. They benefit from real-time fly-through inspection, consistency checking, collision detection, and rapid plant layout drawing generation.

Also on show was STHENO/PRO, CAD Schroer-s well-known drafting suite for Pro/ENGINEER users, combining the best of the 2D and 3D worlds. The package is ideal for quick conceptual designs and consolidating model and drawing-based processes. Customers easily augment their Pro/ENGINEER designs with additional design elements and information, non-parametric and not-to-scale. They benefit from additional functionality, such as color raster editing and scaled views, and a wealth of drafting power tools. Pro/ENGINEER drawings are updated with the click of a button, and managed in the client-s familiar PDM environment.
