Benefits for your enterprise

TIME SAVING

TIME SAVING

Working in an environment integrated with SOLIDWORKS, you can save up to 60% of standard design time in 3D software. With a shared database, information created by one user can be used across all workstations.

PDM / ERP INTEGRITY

PDM / ERP INTEGRITY

Developed with Industry 4.0 in mind, the software fits perfectly with the idea of integrating intelligent machines, systems and processes. The structure of the files and data created allows it to be easily integrated into PDM / ERP systems.

COST REDUCTION

COST REDUCTION

Reducing design time and minimising errors occurring in production will significantly reduce furniture manufacturing costs. Together with WOODEXPERT your company becomes more competitive on the market.

Error reduction

Error reduction

The extensive collision detection function enables the identification of structural flaws already at the design stage. Supported by the validation and repair of materials minimizes production errors.

AUTOMATIZATION

AUTOMATIZATION

Generators of 2D documentation and material lists offer the advantage of a smooth transition from the design phase to the production phase. In addition to saving time, automating these processes allows you to unify drawing documentation.

PACKAGING OPTIMIZATION

PACKAGING OPTIMIZATION

The built-in component packaging tool allows the user to optimize packaging materials and the placement of components in the package.

PERFECT INTEGRITY WITH SOLIDWORKS CAM

PERFECT INTEGRITY WITH SOLIDWORKS CAM

With a SOLIDWORKS subscription, the user gets the ability to generate NC programs for any machine. WOODEXPERT CAM is fully based on the SOLIDWORKS CAM add-on. Our specialists ensure the implementation and commissioning of post-processors adapted to the customer's machine park.

INTUITIVE INTERFACE

INTUITIVE INTERFACE

The interface has been designed with the end user in mind. The functional layout makes it easy and intuitive to go through the entire process, from the creation of the design to the generation of production and peripheral data.

PARAMETRICITY

PARAMETRICITY

All functions related to product design are based on SOLIDWORKS software. The user is able to create and configure products that are based on simple equations and mates.
