Getting data at the right time in front of the right people can be hard. Especially, when old technologies are getting involved. While SOLIDWORKS is a fantastic tool for mechanical engineers and de-factor MCAD standard, working with CAD files not fun at all. What else is that if you don’t have a SOLIDWORKS license, getting data from these SOLIDWORKS files is somewhat between hard to impossible.
What can you do if you just got a bunch of SOLIDWORKS files from your contractor, but you don’t have SOLIDWORKS on your machine, no licenses and sometimes even no place to install it (eg. you run your business on Apple computers). And you need to create a BOM to make purchasing.
OpenBOM can help you in an incredible form by extracting all data you need directly from your SOLIDWORKS files and store BOM and related information in your OpenBOM account. Which makes it immediately available for all your team members.
Watch a short video on how easy it can be done.
Once you’ve got a BOM you can share data, work on production planning and eventually to create POs and send it to your contractors and suppliers. So, everything will be online and on time.
OpenBOM helps you to extract the data from CAD systems in a seamless and easiest way possible. Check all CAD integrations available out of the box and via custom services. The integrations provide you the way to unlock the value of the product data, connect the engineers with production planners, purchasing, contractors, and suppliers.
