MiniTec UK is promoting its suite of free software tools that assist engineers who are designing and specifying frameworks, machine guarding and other structures from the MiniTec aluminium profile system.
MiniTec iCAD online is a comprehensive online CAD tool that makes it easy and quick to select and configure hardware, covering all planning and construction requirements. The combination of components and software enables engineers to make full use of MiniTec profiles, fasteners and accessories.
MiniTec iCADassembler is a 3D design tool for use with MiniTec components; it remains independent of other CAD software, yet it also interfaces with popular systems such as Mechanical Desktop, ProEngineer, Solid Works, Solid-Edge and MegaCAD (in total there are more than 50 2D and 3C CAD output formats). Compared with traditional design methods, MiniTec says that iCADassembler can reduce design time for components and assemblies by up to 90 per cent. A further benefit is the integrated automated design module for linear axes, slideways, conveyor belts and workstations.
