Metromont Corporation produces precast concrete products for the construction of parking garages, office buildings, sports stadiums, schools and various other types of buildings. The company needed to move from 2D to a 3D system to take advantage of the major benefits of 3D solid modeling. The company creates solid models for its custom-made products, and every project can contain several hundred drawings. In addition, the life cycle of a typical project can include several revisions and changes in scope. As a result, the parametrics of a 3D CAD package was a necessity for Metromont.
Metromont chose SolidWorks CAD software over other 3D systems because of the completeness of the software at every level. SolidWorks streamlined the company's processes because with the SolidWorks parametric technology, parts and assemblies updated automatically when a design change is made, and drawings update when the model changes. By implementing SolidWorks CAD software, Metromont shortened its design cycles by 30 percent, cut time required to make revisions, reduced design errors by 40 percent, and improved customer communications.
