There are many excellent CAD systems with multitudes of advanced functionality. To achieve the most from CAD, designs standards need to be in place to ensure engineers and designers create their designs in a consistent and efficient manner.
Lack of design standards results in overly complex parts and assemblies, making the models become unstable and difficult to modify and update, resulting in frustration and delays at the most stressful times.
Soul of Design appreciates the nuances of a company’s design processes and has the experience and understanding of CAD systems to be able to implement industry best design standards to ensure consistent, robust, CAD designs.
Is your CAD system missing certain functionality, Soul of Design can create custom functionality to simplify the most difficult or tedious design tasks. Soul of Design has the expertise to create custom functionality or seamless interfaces between your CAD system and other enterprise software solutions, such as PLM or ERP.
Soul of Design can customize and tailor most popular CAD systems, including: Dassault Systems’ Catia and Soldworks, PTC’s Creo, Siemens’ NX and Solid Edge, and Autodesk’s Autocad and Inventor.

At Soul of Design, training is considered as important as choosing the proper PLM and CAD System.
Every product development process is unique; consider the development of a submarine periscope compared to a disposable medical device. The periscope’s design process is tailored for low-volume, high-quality, long-life products, while the medical device is for high-volume, easy-to-assemble, short-life products.
They are different products with much different processes, yet PLM and CAD systems can be tailored to design both efficiently.
To achieve the promised productivity of PLM and CAD, users need to be trained to use PLM and CAD relative to their product development process, not simply the generic training commonly provided by vendors.
Soul of Design learns your product development process and trains users how to use PLM and CAD relative to your company’s product development process.
Are the descriptions of your components inconsistent and incomplete? Is it difficult to find components such as motors or screws because the data quality is poor?
Incomplete and inconsistent part data increases costs across the entire product development process.
Soul of Design cleanses and enriches product data, allowing to easily identify and classify components.
With cleansed quality data, designers and engineers quickly find required components, part standardization increases and quality improves, purchasing improves leverage with vendors, and inventory is streamlined.
Contact Soul of Design to improve your component data, streamline product development, and save money.
