A new interface now links two leading software brands, limiting the risk of data input errors, guaranteeing reliability and accuracy when information is passed between them with just a few clicks.
This allows bills of materials from VISI Mould to be imported directly into WorkPLAN Solutions, ensuring that WorkPLAN can produce accurate, competitive quotes. WorkPLAN configures an import model in correlation with the file exported from VISI Mould, automatically importing the bill of materials.
The interface means users save time and can give a quicker response to their customers, especially regarding raw materials, standard elements and stock supply management. Projects and their costs can be fully controlled thanks to the import of the complete bill of materials tree structure.
WorkPLAN joined the Vero Software Group earlier this year. WorkPLAN Business Manager Violette Teofilovic says: “This new interface demonstrates Vero’s long term, strategic investment in developing WorkPLAN Solutions. Ongoing customer satisfaction remains our main priority, so we’ll continue to provide solutions adapted to market requirements, which improve manufacturers’ business efficiency, ensuring they stay competitive.”
Data from any CAD application can be imported into WorkPLAN. “The modules are especially adapted for custom manufacturing for a wide range of industries including aeronautics, nuclear, mould making, precision parts design, rapid prototyping, metal constructions and specialised machinery. Its high flexibility allows users to implement only the modules which are necessary for their specific activity.”
For its part, VISI Mould is capable of exporting the required data in csv format. With a full range of CAD interfaces, it can directly open files from applications such as PARASOLID®, IGES®, CATIA® V4 & V5, PRO-E® and STEP®.
“VISI Mould is a true hybrid modeler of the new ‘Direct 3D Modeling’ generation, allowing rapid geometry definition and capture, without having to consider constraints and design intent.”
