Microvellum takes design and manufacturing to the next level with the latest release of its design, manufacturing, and shop management software solutions offered under the Toolbox suite. Sales agents in the field collect lots of information in preparing closet project bids when they sit down with clients. If this information can be gathered during the sales point of contact with the client, estimates and project proposals can get started on a good footing.
Microvellum has put special emphasis on this aspect of the sales cycle with the latest release of its design, manufacturing, and shop management software solutions designed exclusively for the woodworking industry, offered under the Toolbox suite. “Microvellum Designer 7 enables sales people with the ability to work in the field, design on the fly and produce quick quotes for clients. The beauty of this slimmed down version of Toolbox is that projects created by Sales can easily be imported into full versions of Toolbox for manufacturing,” says Clay Swayze, Marketing Director for Microvellum. Its products cater to designers and manufacturers of residential and commercial cabinets, store fixtures, storage systems and closets.
With its applications completely embedded in AutoCAD 2012, an industry standard drafting platform, Toolbox allows designers to experience ideas and visualize projects before they are built using the power of AutoCAD’s 2D and 3D drafting tools. This seamless integration of design, engineering and the parametric logic of Microvellum allows users to check tolerances, validate ideas, and develop products with confidence and accuracy. Whether you draw in 2D or 3D, Toolbox includes all the information needed for manufacturing within product designs, such as CNC machine code, reporting, and instant cutlists.
New to Toolbox 7 and exclusive to Microvellum, is their new 5D drawing functionality. This approach to design allows you to create detailed shop drawings from 3D rooms that include automated elevation views, dimensioning, product details, and more. Also, changes made to the 3D drawings automatically update all sections and other 2D views.
Utilizing AutoCAD’s rendering engine, Microvellum’s Toolbox suite also provides photo-realistic presentation renderings and walk-through animations. Choose from 1,000’s of materials and textures and lighting effects to create stunning, life-like images of projects that highlight your work and show customer exactly what will be built.
This new technology from Microvellum empowers sales agents and streamlines production by keeping the flow of information within one system.
