Put Your CAD to Good Use

CAD Enhances Your Models

You already have 3D models of machines and equipment and these assets can be imported into your Emulate3D models. It's easier to understand what's going on if the model contains accurately-dimensioned elements, and it certainly makes your solutions look more convincing.

Speed Up Your Build with CAD Floor Plans

Import DWG or DXF floor plans as a template upon which to place active system elements, bring in point clouds to ensure clearances are respected, and add reusable elements to your company catalog.

Make CAD into Smart Catalog Items

Dynamic machines can be animated and contain scripted behaviors which can be triggered through a standard interface, or "visual-only" items can be imported to provide visual references. Parts, pallets, loads, vehicles, machines, tools, equipment, operators - the list is endless, and it all helps add to the reality of your model.

Emulate3D Works to Make Your CAD Better

As you build models you can add items to layers, so they need not always be visible. If your CAD is full of detail you'd rather not include in the model, like springs, bolts, circlips, and so on, there is a range of tools in Emulate3D to help you hide or eliminate them from your model.
