Project srl develops mechanical projects within very complex and different sectors: automation, agriculture, automotive, components, recreation, etc.
A great added value for our clients is our ability to completely align with the software used in their companies.
Thanks to our deep knowledge of these complex software settings, we are able to perfectly recreate the client’s working environment, with the same software that not only is in the same release, but is also set up with the same parameters, as if a new member was added to the team.
Clients will be able to store files in their filing systems or directly in their PDM, because they comply with their specifications.
In case the clients do not have any special software needs, we will be able to assist them in choosing the most performing software for any kind of project.
Our team uses the best mechanical design software and, thanks to on-going training, is able to offer clients innovative and customized solutions.
CREO PARAMETRIC (FORMER PRO-ENGINEER)
PTC Creo, formerly known as Pro/ENGINEER, is a CAD / CAM / CAE 3D parametric solution, integrated and created by Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC). It was the first one to introduce an associative and functionality-based parametric software for solid modelling on the market.
The application runs on Microsoft Windows platforms and offers solid modelling, assembly modelling and drawing, finite element analysis, parametric modelling, surfaces.
Creo is not simply a new name for Pro/Engineer, it is an actual application suite, that features about 1,000 new implementations and has been upgraded with a user-friendly interface.
Creo offers extended functions to meet any requirement:
- 3D design
- Creation of parametric surfaces and Freestyle
- 2D drawing
- Model-Based Definition
- Project exploration
- Designing of sheets
- Designing of mechanisms
- Designing of plastic parts
- Designing of structures and welds
- Designing of fixing devices
- Conceptual design
- Industrial design
- Reverse engineering
- Analysis of motion
- Performance Advisor
- Product data management and assembly management and performance
- Reuse of existing projects and automation
Creo Tool Design Extension (TDO)
We have decided to also use this Creo Parametric extension to optimize the design of industrial production moulds.
Mould design is a complex and very delicate process, a mould’s proper operation has a considerable impact on the production chain and a strong incidence on costs and production quality.
Thanks to Creo Tool Design Extension we are able to design one or multiple cavity moulds and casts with unprecedented ease. It is also possible to troubleshoot mould drafts, undercuts and thickness, to avoid any critical issues in the design phase.
Creo Simulate Extension
Creo Simulate is a structural analysis solution equipped with a complete set of functionalities for finite element analysis (FEA) enabling testing and validation of 3D virtual prototype performances, before creating the first part.
This extension creates digital prototypes to understand the real-condition project performances. Always in a Creo environment, it is used to integrate the results coming from the kinematic and dynamic calculation and optimize the virtual prototype.
Therefore, the product check simulation during the design becomes even more effective, so as to avoid errors that, in physical prototyping, would force you to start again from scratch.
CATIA V5 offers solutions for intuitive modelling based on specifications for designing solid, hybrid and sheet metal parts, assemblies and integrated drawings, as well as design and styling.
Thanks to a number of tools, it is possible to easily validate and edit any type of surface, from free-form to mechanical form surfaces.
The knowledge-ware solution set transforms the implicit design methods into explicit knowledge in order to get the best design.
The surface modelling power and the parametric working option make this tool highly versatile for the most complicated situations: reverse engineering, design, equipment and system engineering, etc.
Siemens NX offers a new generation of design, simulation and production solutions, thanks to integrated, powerful and flexible tools, that allow for a more rapid and efficient product manufacturing, by supporting every single aspect of the development: from the concept to the design and fabrication.
This tool set coordinates disciplines, preserving data integrity and design aim, and simplifies the entire process.
It is a continuous release software, offering the possibility to evaluate the project quality.
Among the most useful tools there are advanced tools for surfaces, boolean solids, shape modelling, advanced tools for complex working conditions: surface continuity, geometry analyses, finite element simulation and visualization tools.
This drawing and 3D design software was created for mechanical engineering and is mainly used for the design of mechanical, even complex, equipment.
With Solidworks it is possible to create solid and surface 2D and 3D drawings, through a parametric-type geometric system which is completely customizable; thanks to the parametric drawing, numerous types of relations can be set.
Furthermore, it enables to shift drawings from 2 to 3 dimensions and vice-versa, importing and exporting AutoCAD (DWG, DXF) files, and importing graphic files created with other programs.
Solidworks Simulation Standard
A very useful Solidwork extension is Simulation Standard because it offers a simultaneous design approach, assisting in understanding if the product works correctly and how long it lasts.
Simulation Standard is an intuitive virtual testing environment where you can perform linear static simulations of time-based motion and high cycle fatigue.
It is a design and production software for studies and 2D drawings.
The strength of this software is: the freedom of movement of elements, the possibility to rapidly study different project variants thanks to the implementation ergonomics of 2D design functions and the creation of high-quality 2D plan files through the software’s rich functions, without going through 3D modelling.
It offers the option to work by parts, exploiting construction lines and the possibility to get controls directly from the screen.
Currently, this is one of the best 3D rendering software on the market. Not only is an import pipeline able to load almost all CAD file formats: during the mechanical design, at changes that have been made (to the geometry or a part) Keyshot updates the 3D model without losing the pre-processed settings.
The software provides for rendered visuals, updated with the advancing design, and can move and operate the object as if in reality. Through a web browser HTML format, the client can see the 3D model moving, by simply using a mouse.
