RICHARDSON, Texas—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Jan. 17, 2005— Magove S.A. ( www.magove.com), a manufacturing company located in Tultitlan, Mexico, moved from 2D to 3D with Alibre Design three years ago and now provides custom designed machinery, robotic cells and quality equipment for the automotive and food and drug industries.
These New business opportunities result from direct access to 3D
CAD data and improve the communication of design intent for shorter
design cycles and fewer errors calling for design adjustments.
"The move to 3D with Alibre Design opened up new business that
Magove couldn't have gained as a 2D operation," states Gaspar Acevedo,
lead engineer for Magove. "The automotive plastics gage design and
fabrication we now do would be impossible in 2D, primarily because you
are dealing with free surfaces. We don't even get printed drawings
sometimes, just 3D CAD data for the glove box, door panel, heating
When integrating custom designed machinery, the communications
benefits gained by moving from 2D to 3D, both internally and with
clients, can't be overemphasized. Acevedo continues, "You need as much
input as you can get from the client early in the design phase.
Because 2D drawings are so complex to understand, it can take hours of
review to comprehend what's happening. With Alibre Design in 3D,
anyone can understand what's going on in a matter of minutes."
