ASCON Group is glad to share with you the latest news!
- ASCON and Carl Hanser Verlag Co-release New «Design with CAD» Book
- German Metalwork Producer Solves all of its Design Tasks with KOMPAS-3D
- Special Offers from ASCON
Includes free KOMPAS 3D modeling package for learning mechanical engineering
ASCON Group and Carl Hanser Verlag GmbH & Co. KG, a well-known German technical publishing house, are pleased to present their new book "Design with CAD," written in the German language by Harald Vogel, a technical journalist and an expert on computer-aided design. The book is designed to be an MCAD learning manual as well as a regular volume for everyday reading by those interested in the field of modern mechanical design. By perusing this book, readers learn about 3D modeling methods in general use by all of today's mechanical CAD systems; by working through its tutorials, readers become expert in the field of parametric design.
For studying MCAD, however, suitable software is needed, which in most cases is not cheap. Our book solves the dilemma by including a full-function version of the professional mechanical CAD software, KOMPAS-3D V12. Readers may use all of the software's functions for six months with no restrictions.
To download a sample chapter or to purchase the book (€39.90), visit the Hanser Web site at www.hanser.de/buch.asp?isbn=978-3-446-42401-2&area=Technik.
German Metalwork Producer Solves all of its Design Tasks with KOMPAS-3D
Wolfgang Buscher Metallbau' success story
WB Metallbau is committed offering its customers manufactured metal products that are at the highest level of reliability and of durable quality. The company is constantly pursuing its goal of improving the production process and its products.
For many years, WB Metallbau used 2D software to design its products. However, 2D is no longer enough. The company found it had to react faster, become more innovative, and pay much more attention to technological know-how. For them, this was the only way to stay ahead in the market. To achieve this goal, they needed a high-performance, flexible 3D CAD solution. And for WB Metallbau, the solution was to implement KOMPAS-3D, the professional 3D design software from ASCON.
"At the start of our projects, we use the STEP format to exchange data with suppliers and subcontractors. Some parts data that I receive from my suppliers go straight into my designs," explained Wolfgang Buscher, owner of WB Metallbau. "I find that with KOMPAS-3D it is very easy to import them." For suppliers and customers without the CAD system installed, ASCON offers the easy-to-use KOMPAS-Viewer at no charge.
ASCON Solutions provides professional value at a reasonable cost:
- Rent Your CAD: rent KOMPAS-3D at 75 euros per month.
- Trade in Your CAD: exchange your outdated CAD for KOMPAS-3D at a 50% discount.
- Free Your CAD: download KOMPAS-3D free 30 days trial from ascon.net/download/kompas/.
