RuleStream , a provider of standards-based engineering (SBE) solutions that capture, manage, and reuse engineering knowledge, is using the RealDWG engine from Autodesk to augment integration of AutoCAD software.
With this extension to RuleStream's current AutoCAD integration, AutoCAD software users can benefit from RuleStream's comprehensive approach to knowledge management—spanning sales, engineering and manufacturing operations. By capturing engineering knowledge and using it to automate key business processes across the enterprise, RuleStream's clients have reduced internal operating expenses, shortened lead times, increased sales win rates and increased overall profitability.
Integration with AutoCAD software also will help custom and complex product manufacturers respond to customer-specific orders more rapidly.
Developing on the RealDWG platform enhances RuleStream’s ability to serve companies that use AutoCAD software as their primary CAD system, or otherwise need to generate 2D drawings or 3D models as part of their sales quotation and order fulfillment process. With RealDWG, design rules captured within RuleStream will be able to automatically:
• Generate native AutoCAD documents that are fully compliant with Autodesk’s popular DWG file format;
• Generate fully associative 2D drawings;
• Generate 3D models; and
• Leverage the reusability of AutoCAD software dynamic blocks.
"This partnership is a big win for the manufacturing customer,” says Eric Stover, product line manager at Autodesk. “With the integration of RealDWG into RuleStream's SBE Enterprise software suite, the generation of engineering data has never been easier. Whether you're required to produce 3D models or 2D engineering data, RuleStream and Autodesk provide an unbeatable solution for your engineering needs."
