Kenesto are demonstrating the latest version of their cloud-based document management software at SEU16 and will be showing how design departments can use their “Kenesto Drive” solution to replace local servers with a cloud storage solution that is specifically designed for engineers. According to Kenesto, engineers typically make frequent changes to their CAD files and if they are using cloud-based files storage solutions that are not specifically designed for engineers, there is a good chance that users can work on older files by mistake. With the Kenesto Drive, users work just like they would on their own C: drive, but have exclusive access for editing and can implement file locking for other users – no more stomping on another user’s edits. To get started you simply drag files to the Kenesto Drive, and users can easily work from home or when traveling, and can share selected files with external users when needed.
Some of the new capabilities that Kenesto are demonstrating at SEU16 include the ability to isolate parts and/or sub-assemblies when viewing a large Solid Edge assembly, and the viewer now automatically uses the same measurement units as the selected CAD files. And industrial equipment manufacturer Arnold Machine is presenting on their use of Solid Edge and Kenesto Drive at SEU16 – you can also read this blog post about how Arnold Machine is automating their equipment design process.
