OpenBOM Video Demo Series – CAD Integrations

Today’s blog is another installment introducing the new OpenBOM video demo series. In today’s blog, we’ll be going over a very important topic – CAD integrations. At OpenBOM we believe in the value of data capturing and seamless integrations with existing systems and data. This is how we eliminate non-valuable work by engineers and return them the time they can spend on engineering activities instead of doing a “parasitic work” of manual data capture. 

OpenBOM CAD integrations and file data management functionality is part of the overall product lifecycle management that supports processes from design, engineering, production, and maintenance. 

OpenBOM Drive

OpenBOM Drive is a virtual cloud disk that allows you to manage all engineering files, collaborate with engineers, manage file revisions, and control who can access and change files. Drive technology gives you a unique combination to manage data in the cloud while accessing the data locally. Automatic sync mode allows you to access files even if your computer is not connected to the internet and later sync all information. 

Drive is available via the File Explorer user interface. 

And via web browser, 

CAD Add-in

OpenBOM seamlessly integrates with many CAD systems and allows you to capture data and files to create Items and Product Structure. One-click-BOM functionality makes it simple and easy with an easy setup. The data can flow in both directions and merge with changes that are done by multiple people. 

Created BOM includes all information needed to manage the product lifecycle.
