Direct your CAD models from within Elfsquad CPQ software. Fill in parametric models on the basis of configurations, entirely plug & play. Even if your product is not a 100% configure to order. Send your CAD files along with quotations, or generate machine controls (CAM).
As soon as a salesman rolls out a quotation or wins an order, the configuration generates an Inventor assembly. The configurator directs all dimensions of your parametric models: on the basis of a configuration, parameters are filled and components are suppressed or replaced. This way, a 100% errorless assembly arises at staggering speeds, which is set up in a project folder in the server.
Imagine, your product consists of modules for 80%, but the last 20% always requires to be engineered customer-specifically. Then the Elfsquad Product Configurator is still of use to you: from the configurator an Inventor assembly of the modular part is set up in the project folder. In engineering’s workflow, a task is created to finish the assembly, supplied with clear instructions if needed.
As soon as an order is sold, or a quotation is created, the assembly is set up in a project folder. By generating CAM-files through Inventor assemblies, you will use CAM-drivers compatible with Inventor by default.
Is a quotation document not enough for your customers, or do you supply system integrators? Through Inventor integration you generate a CAD-file when rolling out a quotation, in a file format of your choice. Upload the file to a cloud service, Sharepoint for example, and share the link within the quotation.
A frequently asked question: how is Elfsquad and Inventor’s workflow in combination with CRM and ERP? There is a lot of personal freedom in this, but a very usual workflow looks as follows:
