One of the major advantages of digital transformation is unlocking the reliable availability of important project data across international borders. No matter where your team members or clients are located, you can easily share data with them throughout the design and manufacturing process.

Data sharing is the foundation for process-optimized and reliable production on an international scale. Shorter planning times and cost pressure require this innovative approach to meet modern customer requirements.

Autodesk Fusion 360 was an ideal CAD/CAM solution for ZETTERER based on its user-friendly interface and how it could easily be implemented into daily business. By simply connecting ZETTERER’s machine tools, the ZETTERER team could use Fusion 360 efficiently within a short timeframe. Once implemented, the software instantly became an integral part of the company’s CAD/CAM programming.
