Superlift Suspension Systems has integrated TransMagic into its design process.
Superlift is using TransMagic software to exchange 3D data between differing computer-aided-design (CAD) systems and relied on TransMagic to complete products for the 2008 SEMA show. Using TransMagic, designers visually select, automatically repair and group the needed portions of 3D CAD data from automotive OEMs before importing into SolidWorks. Superlift engineers use the improved data to more efficiently create new product designs.
"TransMagic has made it possible to open any neutral or native CAD file we receive, quickly isolate, repair and retrieve what we need," says Kevin Dill, product development lead engineer at Superlift. "Repairing damaged files and grouping what we need prior to importing has saved us lots of time. Our time is now better spent working with clean, manageable files that we can rely on as we design new products."
Superlift has reduced reverse engineering processes and file re-creation by integrating TransMagic. Quality is also improved since new product designs are based on original OEM data rather than measurements taken in the field.
