The AutoCAD Advantage

Striker Systems sheet metal fabrication products are available as a plug-in to AutoCAD or, for non-AutoCAD users, as a stand-alone solution based on the AutoCAD OEM Engine.  Either way, this combination provides a unique CAD/CAM environment with features not found in many conventional manufacturing products. 

Removal of Data Translations

Striker Systems provides a truly integrated CAD/CAM solution that supports the entire manufacturing process from initial part design through the generation of NC programs with no data translations required.  And unlike many manufacturing software products with limited design capability, Striker Systems includes an advanced engineering system for the most demanding sheet metal design requirements.

SolidWorks / Solid Edge / Inventor Compatibility

The industry is rapidly embracing 3D solid modeling technology.  Being based on Autodesk’s industry standard DWG file format, Striker Systems offers a level of compatibility not found in other manufacturing solutions.  Many products, such as Inventor and SolidWorks, support Striker’s standard DWG file format directly.  And Striker also offers direct OLE links into SolidWorks, Inventor and Solid Edge for seamless sharing of data.

Industry Standard Translators

Many Striker Systems clients must accept drawings from a variety of sources.  In the event it is necessary to import data from (or export data to) another CAD software, Striker Systems relies on the same industry standard DXF, IGES, and STEP translators that are found in AutoCAD.  Autodesk is the author of the DXF file format and therefore defines this standard.  And because AutoCAD is the most popular CAD software in the world, it is a benchmark for the development of translators by many other CAD software organizations.  You are guaranteed the highest level of compatibility in the industry.

Reduced Training Time/Cost

Both the AutoCAD based and stand-alone Striker Systems products provide an enhanced user interface that will be immediately recognizable to individuals familiar with AutoCAD.  They will readily adapt to the Striker environment thereby minimizing the learning curve.  And for organizations that use AutoCAD as their engineering solution, it is not necessary for employees to learn multiple operating environments as they would with separate CAD and CAM solutions.

Rapid Product Advancements

Unlike the developers of stand-alone manufacturing products, the development team at Striker Systems is not forced to continually maintain and advance an underlying graphics database.  The Striker graphics database is an AutoCAD engine, the world’s de facto standard CAD solution.  This allows the Striker Development Team to concentrate on feature development and advance software at a rapid pace.
