SWOOD is a 3D CAD-CAM software developed for woodworking and seamlessly integrated into
SOLIDWORKS, providing technical features in an intuitive and parametric environment. Now, they have added another invention into their library installer list – intelligent drawers.
SWOOD Library Installer – Hardware and components library
The Library Installer gives the opportunity for its users to update their existing library items and download the latest components version at any time. Find the right model quickly by searching for component items by type (frames, drawers, hinge, shelf, runner, etc.) and specific criteria (suppliers, ranges, versions, etc.).
The Library Installer aims to give SWOOD users access to a wide range of hardware component and to ensure CAD-CAM compatibility as all machining information are embedded for each component reference.
Ready-to-use intelligent drawers
SWOOD’s teams collaborate with industry suppliers and convert drawer technical specifications into SWOOD components, which are accessible through a server. Intelligent components combine multiple product references into a single library component and integrate supplier technical specifications for use. When an intelligent component is downloaded from the Library Installer to SWOOD, all the product range configurations (slide dimensions, number of parts, etc.) and opinions (color, materials, etc.) proposed by the supplier are integrated.
The main advantage of these models is that all the drilling patterns are also integrated. The most optimized hardware configuration is proposed according to the insertion context and the drilling patterns are applied to surrounding panels (sides and fronts).
As a parametric solution, if the model is modified (dimensions, number of drawers, etc.), a simple rebuild automatically adapts the configuration and machining of the components. In this way, intelligent components enable complex projects to be designed faster and more reliably, following the drawer usage recommendations.
