A successful 2011 for Missler Software

Missler Software is pleased to announce successful 2011 end of year results with an increase in sales turnover of 6%. Despite a somewhat difficult global economic context the company has increased its turnover both in France and on international markets.

The French market performed particularly well with an increase in the region of 10% compared to 2010 results. The main champions of this growth were the Cam, ERP and TopSolid'Design 7 products. Cam sales increased by 40% in France showing a new confidence on the part of French manufacturing and sub-contracting companies.

Missler Software announced a continued strong sales performance in its 2 leading international markets outside France: Japan and Germany. In fact turnover in the German-speaking market has increased fivefold over the past 10 years.

2012 is set to be another strong year for TopSolid. Thanks to the new TopSolid 7 software generation which is completely based on new software development technology, Missler Software promises its customers productivity gains in the region of 20 to 30%. TopSolid will continue in 2012 to address the manufacturing market by providing integrated CAD/CAM software for the mechanical engineering, sheet metal and wood industries.

Customer of the month: Verhofsté

The company Verhofsté based in Zele, Belgium has been using software for the commercial and technical design of its steel shelters since 2006. Its €60,000 investment to replace the old AutoCad software with TopSolid has greatly accelerated development of the company’s made-to-measure products. It now only takes a few minutes to design a new shelter. This new method is also set to boost sales.
In the past all new models had to be completely re-drawn, and the new dimensions entered. It took several hours to design a new model in this way. So Filip Verhofsté went looking for a solution. "What we needed was an easy-to-use software package, that didn’t require much training. Above all, the tool we were looking for had to make it possible to quickly deliver customer proposals along with a fully technical drawing. Thanks to the new TopSolid software, it now only takes a few minutes to design a new shelter. We consulted Luc Cornelis from 4D Services in Ternat as part of the process."

"Designing a new shelter now only takes a matter of minutes thanks to TopSolid."

How to save time with TopSolid'Design 7

You need to copy an existing assembly and just make a couple of small changes to some parts. It is therefore very useful to be able to copy all documents concerning the assembly in question. The Copy/Paste Special function enables you to easily copy all documents linked to your assembly.

  1. Copy the documents
  2. Special paste in the same or another project
  3. Select the parts to be copied: in this case the plate and the manifold
  4. Carry out the desired changes to the 2 parts from the assembly 
  5. Your work is over
