Get Started

AR-CAD

Goal

  • Find a solution that allows small teams to compete with larger players in creating engineering add-ins for high-tech CAD environments. This solution must be physics-based and allow users to visualize tolerances and the impact of physical forces.

Challenge

The technology must:
  • Maximize the abilities of a small team through increased programming productivity.
  • Integrate well within popular CAD programs such as AutoCAD, Inventor, Solidworks, Alibre and SpaceClaim.
  • Be easy to understand.
  • Facilitate software debugging.

Results With Cincom® VisualWorks®

  • Cincom VisualWorks allows companies to stay on equal footing with competitors that rely on more complex programming languages as the foundation for their CAD motion simulators.
  • Its clean syntax and pure object-oriented paradigm allow programmers to convert the problem domain into working code more easily and faithfully.
  • The debugger and inspectors encourage fearless exploration of the code to fix programming problems.
