Project

Coldspring was interested in improving their overall design efficiency. Applied’s talented software engineers built Autodesk Inventor plugins that pull specific dimensions from parts and place them into assemblies. This was programmed to be automatic, so the engineer does not have to manually pull the dimensions every time an assembly drawing is created. This reduces mistakes and time per assembly drawing.

Currently, Applied is working on a barcoding system that integrates with their ERP system, JDEdwards, to allow the production process to be more automated, rather than relying on user input. Additionally, our technology team supplies Coldspring with the Autodesk software that best fits their needs.
