BEND, OR, Aug 29, 2018 – Tech Soft 3D, leading provider of development toolkits to the engineering software industry, announces that Microvellum, a world leader in AutoCAD-based design to manufacturing software for the woodworking industry, relies on AutoCAD OEM and support from Tech Soft 3D to create sophisticated solutions for intelligent cabinet design.
“Through our partnership with Tech Soft, we’re able to package our solutions the way that we see fit, and the way that our customers benefit and want to consume the product,” said Clay Swayze, director of marketing at Microvellum. “Recently we’ve been receiving feedback for the need of customized packages to be sold at a subscription model, or even additional user licenses sold that way. It’s something that we’re considering and know that Tech Soft supports us either way we want to sell our products. In addition, Tech Soft 3D has been a fantastic partner for us, with their continued support and training, helping us to get the most out of AutoCAD OEM.”
Using AutoCAD OEM, Microvellum is able to create custom solutions for everything from architectural millwork, residential cabinetry and closets, to restaurant interiors and furniture. The process takes a few simple steps. First, create a plug-in with your industry expertise using the extensive APIs found in AutoCAD. Next, use the OEM wizards to embed your features and remove unwanted AutoCAD functionality, so your product is customized with only the features, commands, and menus your customers need, with easy access that doesn’t require a seat of AutoCAD. Apply your UI, branding, and licensing, and finally set your own pricing and distribution and deliver your custom product to the market.
Using AutoCAD OEM has been an invaluable tool in creating the kind of customized solution that delivers exactly what woodworkers and architects need to bring their design ideas to life. The easy access to code samples or snippets, API documentation and other support makes developing a new module easy and fast.
“At Tech Soft 3D, we’re proud to fuel innovation with our unmatched 3D technology,” said David Grieve, director of OEM Partner Development at Tech Soft 3D. “As an exclusive partner of Autodesk, Tech Soft 3D is also the only company that can sell the AutoCAD OEM development platform. AutoCAD OEM helps companies build custom AutoCAD software-based products to target markets outside the traditional CAD community.”
Based in Central Point, Oregon, Microvellum has approximately 10,000 users globally and has been providing software solutions within the woodworking industry for over two decades. Microvellum offers an AutoCAD-based design and drafting platform that allows users to streamline their design, engineering and production workflows.
