All activities of a metalworking company by drawing three-dimensional planning through manufacturing, to Assembly, costing and billing must be taken into account. Goal is to link these complex topics and work processes with the help of software and to gain a competitive advantage in the highly competitive market the own metal construction customers. To this end, the Schuco service GmbH has harmoniously co-ordinated solutions. The interfaces between the spreadsheet software SchuCal and construction software SchuCad are as resolved as to other applications, such as ERP / PPS systems.

Facade modeling for metal construction companies latest development for metal construction company is a software package for the modelling of demanding facades, plates or structural bodies SchuCad inventor. Based on Autodesk Inventor are accurate digital 3D prototypes of products developed and visualised before production. The element sketches that can take over from SchuCal out. Required Schuco profiles are easily and conveniently taken from the library and added as 3D. The Assembly can be checked continuously in the course of the design, so that design flaws can be detected at an early stage.

This planning and installation safety increases, while decreases the need for physical prototypes. This in turn saves costs. “To the point it can be said: digital prototyping” with SchuCad inventor enables the development high-quality products in less time at a lower cost.
