MCAD & PDM Integration
Integration tools for MCAD systems
Capital provides integration tools for all leading MCAD systems, with support for a variety of end-users.
Capital provides deep integration with leading MCAD systems - more than a simple file exchange process, Capital provides designers with precise control of each attribute of the data as it flows between systems. Capital allows companies to specify ownership of each aspect of the data – for example, wire length is defined by MCAD, wire color is defined by harness designer; and, once specified, the Capital/MCAD interface controls all data flows, allowing designers to work concurrently and without risk of introducing errors caused by accidental modification of data in one system or the other.
For harness designers, Capital provides powerful harness flattening capabilities that intelligently flatten and unfold complex 3D harness networks into 2D branch layouts ready for detailing. Grommets, clips and other mechanical parts are transferred as well as connector-clocking and orientation
All MCAD interfaces support the incremental change process using a Change Manager that provides precise control, of data exchange, including diagnosis, selection, and application of incoming changes—simplifying and automating the task of change management
