Setred adopts CAD Exchanger to solve design interchange problems with its partners and subcontractors


Setred is a multi-national technology company that develops unique 3D visualization solutions for medical, oil & gas, consumer and other industries.


The Challenge

Setred involves various subcontractors for design and production of different subsystems, as well as for final packaging and assembly. The engineering team has to make sure the designs are done according to the original specifications, and that they fit together. Although subcontractors are to use STEP AP 214 whenever possible, they have to use different CAD programs from different vendors. This leads to regular troubles with the interchange at Setred.


The Solution

Setred has adopted CAD Exchanger GUI to be a common denominator in solving data exchange problems. The support for different formats is the crucial benefit for Setred, and they frequently re-export designs as an intermediate step if direct import is impossible.

The Value

CAD Exchanger helps the Setred team to quickly evaluate designs, as well as present and discuss them with management. The introduction of the Parasolid-XT format support in CAD Exchanger has broaden capabilities for accepting designs from subcontractors.
