During R&D and design stages, the company uses 3D modeling, visualization and simulation applications included in Autodesk Product Design Suite Ultimate 2013 and Autodesk Product Design Suite Premium 2013. In addition, BMC utilizes AutoCAD LT 2013 for 2D drafting and detailing, as well as Autodesk Revit Architecture for architectural design purposes. “In today’s competitive market, 3D modeling is an indispensable tool,” said Cuneyt Targotay, Chief Information Officer at BMC. “Autodesk, with its ongoing technology development, fulfills all our expectations in the best possible way.” Delivering Better Products Through Digital Design BMC worked with Autodesk Gold partner CADBIM to identify areas where the array of digital prototyping tools and functionality within Autodesk Product Design Suite could benefit its product design workflow. To start, BMC is able to more easily identify potential assembly problems or interferences between product parts during the digital modeling phase by using Autodesk Inventor software. Sophisticated simulation and analysis tools, such as the plastic injection molding simulation and finite element analysis (FEA) features in Autodesk Inventor Professional software, help to further optimize the design process.
