TransMagic: The Multiple-CAD Interoperability Solution!
A business tip for 3D interoperability with ALL MAJOR 3D CAD FILE FORMATS. Read and write CATIA, Unigraphics, Pro/ENGINEER, SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, Parasolid X_T, ACIS SAT, STL, FEA mesh & more! File conversion issues cost Australian companies millions of Australian dollars every year in engineering time and lost data - not including the further costs of opportunity lost and increased quotation and production lead times..
What is INTEROPERABILITY?
Regarding CAD/CAD file formats, this refers to portability from one system to another different system.
Why is TransMagic the world's leading third-party 3D interoperability solution?
Do some Australian companies try to "dodge" the CAD interoperability problem?
In Australia, CAD data interoperability is sometimes seen by management as "just an engineering problem" (and not a real "business problem").
What is the real cost of NOT having a CAD interoperability solution?
More than you think! Some translations may take from 1 - 10+ engineering hours, pro-rated A$80/hour (total value) = $80-$800. Quality of results can vary, and checking the results can take as much time. Manual CAD model rework to re-create/modify surface gaps can take up to a day or more (A$640) making a single file translation without proper interoperability tools cost in company time and resources as much as A$2000+ for a single file.
How important is your engineering data? Mistakes often made by cheaper, "reverse engineered" file translators written with "hacked" algorithms can create serious design flaws and deviations from the original model that go on undetected into production or further design! The final results can cost millions - a result easily avoided with a NATIVE FORMAT solution like TransMagic.
Cost of business opportunity lost. According to independent CAD research from the Aberdeen Group, almost 90% of data sent from top OEM brand manufacturers in in native PLM format (Unigraphics NX, CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER, Inventor..) Suppliers must choose between continually outsourcing translation (forbidden by some OEM customer NDR agreements) or attempting to re-construct data themselves. Extended engineering time to source a translation solution may even compromise company's supplier rating.
