Factory Layout Design for AutoCAD
Factory Design Suite Standard 3-Year Subscription Renewal
is an integrated factory layout and optimization solution built specifically to help you design and communicate the most efficient layout by
creating a digital model of your factory. It includes tools for optimizing 2D layouts, integrating 2D layout data with 3D models of machine and
facility components, creating 3D layout models with bidirectional 2D/3D associativity, as well as cloud-based factory asset resources and secure
mobile and online sharing of 3D layouts. It combines unique layout-specific functionality in AutoCAD and Inventor
software with powerful
visualization and analysis tools that can help increase innovation, design efficiency, and communication when responding to changing business
Content and Features
Core products in the suite include AutoCAD Architecture
, and Inventor
software enhanced with the
Factory Design Utility
, which gives users a factory-specific work environment that helps factory layout designers spend more time innovating
rather than drafting.
Factory Design Suite Standard
can help machine and equipment builders, system integrators, and manufacturers to better design, optimize, and visualize factory layouts in order
- Win more business-Help decision makers visualize layout proposals in 3D instead of multilayered 2D drawings.
- Meet compressed project schedules-Move from 2D conceptual layout, to factory model, to creating a 3D virtual fly-through in less time
than traditional 2D layout methods.
- Optimize the factory layout process-A factory-focused solution enables you to transform facility layout liabilities into profit-
generating assets and take advantage of modern laser-scanning workflows.
- Collaborate more effectively with suppliers and partners-Reduce installation risks by analyzing the digital factory model for clashes and
space constraints digitally, before they become problems onsite.
is changing the way factory layout professionals think about their design practices an is helping companies build more efficient factories
faster, with greater confidence and fewer costs.
Design, Optimize, and Visualize Factory Layouts in 1-2-3D
Users can take advantage of their existing layout data and expertise to build accurate factory layout models, quickly try multiple layout "what if"
scenarios, and communicate the best solution to stakeholders and partners in three easy steps:
- Create the 2D conceptual layout in AutoCAD or import existing 2D layouts.
- Build the 3D factory model by dragging and dropping 3D models of machines and other facility equipment directly onto the 2D layout from a
library of commonly used factory content. Or easily build and include your own 3D factory asset models to try multiple "what if" scenarios until you
find the best solution.
- Communicate your ideas and build layout proposals easily. From conceptual design, to automatically generating 2D drawings with sections
views, to installation instructions, to conducting engineering reviews of the virtual factory model with 3D walk-throughs, Factory Design Suite Standard accelerates the visual
communication of factory layouts.
