GUANGZHOU, China — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 31, 2012 — ZWSOFT, the leading supplier of CAD/CAM solutions to the AEC and MCAD industry, today officially announced that ZW3D CAD/CAM software has been selected as the manufacturing technology training tool for the Thai-German Institute (TGI). With its ease of learning, powerful data exchange, whole-process mold design and CNC machining, ZW3D offers the TGI a well-integrated package, which enables both the trainer and trainee to drive their design ideas easily, quickly, and accurately to completion.
The Thai-German Institute is a joint initiative of the Government of the Kingdom of Thailand and the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany. The TGI aims to be an effective training center for transferring advanced manufacturing technology to the Thai industry.
“We are truly impressed that ZW3D does a good job in shortening our people’s learning curve and saving time from routine manual tasks,” said Mr. Somwang Boonrakcharoen, Deputy Executive Director of the TGI. “The Show-n-Tell™ built-in learning system let our members focus more on design and innovating and less on learning the software. With ZW3D, we keep staying on the track of transferring technology rather than learning the software, which is our real goal.”
With training as the main task of the organization, TGI has set aside courses ranging from automation, and mold and die, to production. Among these courses, ZW3D is one of the training tools adopted by TGI. “Though we don’t only use ZW3D to fulfill our training tasks, we are very content with what it is capable of, especially its powerful data exchange when it comes to dealing with files from other software,” said Mr. Somwang Boonrakcharoen. “It can directly read many 3D CAD software formats, such as NX, SolidWorks, CATIA, Creo, and Inventor, which ensures smooth collaboration between courses.”
Overall, ZW3D enable trainees to learn everything from hybrid molding, assembly and mold design to CNC machining. The software’s automation and intuitive interface let trainees concentrate on developing their ideas instead of learning how to use their tools, according to TGI trainers.
In addition to the high performance CAD/CAM, the institute wanted a software provider acting like a partner, rather than a vendor. Lucky Eight Co., Ltd., ZW3D’s authorized reseller in Thailand, has always been like a friend, who happens to be a CAD expert to the institute, always there when you need them. “We don’t just provide users technology, but a package including timely and attentive support to users. This is the added value we put on ZW3D, making it a real All-in-one CAD/CAM software,” Stated Kriangkrai Sangpaphan, CEO of Lucky Eight Co., Ltd.
ZW3D is cost-effective CAD/CAM software developed by ZWSOFT. It integrates product design, sheet metal, reverse engineering, product assembly, mold development and machining all in one package. A free trial of ZW3D is available from www.zwsoft.com.
