Advanced 3D Modelling Software
NovaCast has a policy of continually investing in technology that will benefit our customers and improve the service we are able to provide. Although we have worked with CAD for many years we have recently upgraded our in-house system to SpaceClaim 3D Modelling software. This provides us a faster, more intuitive way of managing CAD files for casting geometry design, reverse engineering components and integrating a variety of source files into our production processes; helping us to arrive at the right design solutions faster.
The system has been designed specifically to support engineers, allowing them to easily manipulate the geometry of 3D images to achieve their design and production objectives without having to handle all of the intricacies and complications that CAD systems have traditionally entailed.
The result is faster, more dynamic and more interactive discussions relating to casting design issues, and faster resolutions.
