WOODEXPERT

WOODEXPERT is a program for parametric design of furniture and preparation of its production. Integrated with SOLIDWORKS, it provides comprehensive support for the design process, starting from the 3D modelling stage, through automatic generation of flat documentation and production reports, to generating lists of materials, NC codes and nesting.

It shortens working time, eliminates design errors and is easily integrated with ERP and PDM systems. In WOODEXPERT everything comes down to simplifying the work of a furniture constructor, e.g. by adjusting selected functionalities and reports to its individual needs.

WOODEXPERT – 3D CAD for furniture design and production preparation [SOLIDWORKS Add-in]

You save time and costs, eliminate errors, stay ahead of the competition

3D modelling software has become the standard. Faster and more accurate product design compared to older methods is the most important advantage. The finished 3D model can be used to automatically generate 2D documentation and for CNC programming.

3D modelling in WOODEXPERT boils down primarily to easy editing. You will see the effects of changes introduced to the project immediately. Thanks to the well-designed material management, geometry validation functions and technological clash detection, WOODEXPERT is a program that detects errors and allows you to fix them faster than ever. As a result, it eliminates the risk of material losses in the production process.

The software is equipped with a library of intelligent components, which can be easily extended with new models at any time. This is not the end – you can also import ready-made component models from other CAD programs or libraries available on manufacturers’ websites. Based on the finished furniture model, you will generate material lists and all production documentation.

Advantages of WOODEXPERT

Time saving

Working in an environment integrated with SOLIDWORKS allows you to save up to 60% of the standard design time in a 3D program. Thanks to a shared database, information created by one user can be used on all workstations.

PDM/ERP integrity

The software was created with Industry 4.0 in mind. It fits perfectly into the concept of integrating intelligent machines, systems and processes. The structure of created files and data allows for easy integration with PDM / ERP systems.

Reducing the cost

Reducing the design time and reducing production errors to a minimum significantly reduce the cost of furniture production. Together with WOODEXPERT, your company becomes more competitive on the market.

Error reduction

Extensive clash detection allows you to identify design flaws as early as in the design phase. Supported by validation and repair of materials, it reduces production errors to a minimum.

Automation

Generators of 2D documentation and bills of materials enable a smooth transition from the design phase to the production phase. Automation of these processes, in addition to saving time, allows you to standardize drawing documentation.

Packaging optimization

The built-in tool for packaging components allows the user to optimize packaging materials and arrange the elements in the package.

Perfect cooperation with SOLIDWORKS CAM

As part of the SOLIDWORKS subscription, the user gets the ability to generate NC programs for any machine. WOODEXPERT CAM is fully based on the SOLIDWORKS CAM add-in. Our specialists ensure the implementation and commissioning of postprocessors adapted to the customer's machine park.

Intuitive interface

The interface was designed with the end user in mind. The functional layout allows you to go through the entire process in an easy and intuitive way, from the moment of creating the project to generating production and production-related data.

Parametricity

All functions related to product design are based on SOLIDWORKS software. The user is able to create and configure products that are based on simple equations and constraints.

Software modules

Design

The module is based on a simple insert / replace mechanism, allowing you to shorten the design time while maintaining high modelling freedom. The easy-to-edit library provides predefined components and fittings necessary for the design process.

2D documentation

Thanks to the built-in drawing generator, each user gets the opportunity to create a complete 2D flat documentation. With one click, we generate drawings of components with data necessary for production, including: any number of projections, dimensions (linear, dimensional chain, hole table), CAM format, veneers, edges, grain direction.

BOM Manager

The work of a constructor in the furniture industry is not only a design process. Our BOM module generates all the data necessary to price the product and its production. In addition to the material list, it has been enriched with the function of packing and packaging.

CAM

Full integration with SOLIDWORKS enables quick generation of programs in SOLIDWORKS CAM and preparation of panel cutting in NESTINGWORKS. In addition to the current database of postprocessors, WOODEXPERT CAM is able to generate NC code for any machine.

Nesting

NESTING allows you to download a list of boards included in the project and assign them to the appropriate sheet based on the given material and board thickness.
