WITH A CONFIGURATOR SOLUTION YOU SAVE TIME FOR ALL STEPS AROUND YOUR PRODUCT

A configurator solution makes it possible to respond more quickly to customers with information and quotation management, as well as a more efficient design process with fewer errors in production. Through links to the company’s business system and its articles, time savings are created in order management and the purchasing process.

WHY ARE SO MANY COMPANIES STARTING TO FOCUS ON AUTOMATING THE FLOW AROUND THEIR PRODUCTS?

Today Autodesk Inventor gives its users the opportunity to easily control their products. The user can securely disseminate the information, both within their own organization and also to customers online. Autodesk’s products give us and our customers a complete platform to follow and drive this development forward.

WHAT IS DRIVING THE DEVELOPMENT IN THIS DIRECTION?

Many companies experience uncertainty in hiring young people due to lack of experience. With the help of a rule-controlled design, the company’s “Know How” is woven into the products and the information is kept intact even if the staff is new or replaced.

If you have a product that can be ordered in several different variants or need to quickly provide a layout linked to a request, a product configurator can streamline the flow.

Haki and Cadcraft

Haki modular scaffoldning systems and specialist access solutions are trusted by clients and contractors worldwide for delivering ultimate efficency and safety when working at height during temporary works, in av variety of challenging industry sectors. Haki wanted to move from product to a more self-service based offer for their customers in order to increase competitiveness.

Digitization is an important component for the success of this transition. HAKI has invested in various tools to make it easier for the customer, such as HAKI Design Tools and HAKI BIM. With the help of product configuration, Haki has both shortened its lead times and reduced the risk of incorrect input data.

HAKI Design tools is a 3D-based product configurator that allows the user to configure their scaffolds directly via the web.
A very large saving in lead time and reduced risk of incorrect input data. The solution is based on Inventor iLogic and Configurator 360. From here, the customer can also generate BIM objects themselves.

HAKI BIM allows technical support to complete the customer’s configuration. Data is digitally picked from the configurator and loaded into Revit for customization. In the application, the scaffold can be multiplied and data picked out for production. When required, the strength of the scaffold can be calculated using Robot Structure Analysis.

OUR OFFER

The programming for a configurator takes place in Autodesk Inventor and is called iLogic. If you have an Inventor license, you have everything you need to start building rules. We at Cadcraft have created an add-on to iLogic that opens up a whole new world of opportunities for iLogic programming. Our add-on is called Cadcraft iLogic Utilities and is a set of dynamic functions.

A configurator built with Cadcraft iLogic Utilites reuses already created articles and does not create additional models with “Copy Design”. We use standardized functions that give us the opportunity to build fully dynamic compilations and designs with high performance.

Our coding works both locally and with the Autodesk cloud solution Forge Design Automation, which can be linked to your website.
