Tacton Design Automation Studio

Tacton Design Automation Studio enables design engineers and sales reps to quickly capture end-customer requirements and automatically create customized 3D models and 2D drawings from Autodesk® Inventor®.

Tacton Design Automation tools manage repetitive, routine design tasks so manufacturers can focus on developing and innovating their product lines. Sales teams gain maximum flexibility to configure products along with their customers and produce custom quotes in an instant, including drawings and visualizations. You also gain the advantage of automating CAD models for fabrication. With Tacton Design Automation, these steps can be reduced from months or weeks to hours or even minutes.

  • Fully embedded in the CAD environment
  • Powerful, constraint-based configuration engine that can manage even the most challenging engineer-to-order and configure-to-order environments
