The basic premise of EnSuite 1-Year Subscription is to democratize access to 3D CAD data across the organization to groups outside of engineering/design, including sales/marketing, purchasing, quality, estimation, manufacturing, packaging, and customer service, among others.
EnSuiteincludes tools to provide quick access to critical engineering information residing in CAD data, no matter which CAD system was used to author it.
Doesn't require specific CAD authoring system in order to access critical information.
Easily accessed by all parts of organizations.
Viewing available for all major native CAD & standard formats.
Easy to install and use.
View - Ensuite Viewers
EnSuite has viewers for all commonly used CAD and image file formats. Even better, you do not need CAD software or licenses to view any of the supported file types. Viewers are currently available for CATIA V4, CATIA V5, CATIA V6 3DEXPERIENCE, Parasolid, IGES, Inventor, Autodesk Design Review, JT, Creo, SOLIDWORKS, Solid Edge, ACIS, STEP, NX, CGR, and STL.
EnSuite viewers not only support geometry in the file, but also has an entity tree displaying the list of entities with part and assembly structures. EnSuite viewers also support entity colors, reference entities and annotation notes. EnSuite viewer has tools like standard views, camera operations, display options, section views, and more.
Analyze - Ensuite Productivity Tools
Users across the extended enterprise frequently need to access engineering data from CAD files, without learning to use the CAD system. EnSuiteprovides a user-friendly way to obtain accurate information from all major CAD and Standard formats without requiring a CAD license. Includes:
Compute mass properties, bounding volumes, assembly interferences
Generate Bill of Materials
Compare parts and assemblies and a lot more
Compare Parts & Assemblies EnSuite provides tools for visual verification and comparison of part and assembly files by overlapping the part geometry, comparing geometry with points on second model, comparing the difference in the assembly structure, and transformation. This is especially useful for Quality Control purposes and can be used as the first level inspection.
Measure (Geometry & Features) EnSuite can be used to measure geometric entities and feature data. It also makes working with assemblies easy by providing access to interference allow full screen data in assemblies.
Bill of Materials (BOM) EnSuite provides product information like Bill Of Materials and Parent-Child info in assemblies. This information can help purchasing identify all of the parts in an assembly in preparation for make or buy decisions.
Multi-CAD Assembly EnSuite provides the ability to create an assembly by bringing in parts/assemblies from multiple CAD formats. This is especially useful in a heterogeneous supply chain environment, where suppliers and OEM's work with multi-CAD data towards the same product design.
Share - Ensuite Translators
EnSuite provides seamless CAD data interoperability between all major CAD systems in use today. Files can be translated from and to most of the commonly used files formats without the CAD software or license, shaving the cost of MCAD software ownership from the interoperability process. A number of kernel-based and neutral file translators are also available.

Automate - Custom Productivity Apps Framework
EnSuite includes a custom productivity apps framework that enables the creation of scripts to automate processes common in an engineering organization. Automation reduces the time taken to do the work and frees users to focus on more productive and innovative activities.
Some of the processes that have been automated include:
Opening CAD files by showing only the data in context of use and hiding all insignificant data. This is particularly useful in files sent by OEMs to Suppliers which contain a lot of extraneous data that does not apply to the suppliers work.
Computing bounding volumes, mass, and thickness of parts originating from any CAD and automatically populate Excel files used for quoting.
Automatically adding thickness to models for faces with specific colors to create the blank model of the manufacturing part.
