NX Case Study: SAMS

Four years ago, SAMS decided to change its 3D computer-aided design (CAD) solution to facilitate the work of its designers. “The software we used was purely associative; it didn’t enable using files in the absence of a real structure for assembly and it was difficult to use,” says María Dolores Bautistacerro, a designer at SAMS. “At the time, every designer was working separately with their own tools and parts. It wasn’t really collaborative, with one server shared and a library of parts.”
