November 6, 2018

SCHAUMBURG, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2018--MISUMI USA today announced that is has launched inCAD Components for Rapid Design™ in North America. This free software tool was developed to help simplify and accelerate the factory automation design process for engineers who work within the SolidWorks ® platform.

As a part of the Rapid Design package, inCAD Components provides the designer with unique features that help expand an engineer’s design capabilities and reduce time required to construct CAD (consumer-aided design) assemblies, accessing MISUMI’s 80 sextillion part configurations. “This new tool is a next-generation 3-D CAD generator that runs alongside SolidWorks allowing users to manipulate MISUMI’s configurable components, research pricing, lead-time, and access technical information, all without leaving SolidWorks,” says Associate Director of Marketing Communications, Michael Larmon. “Approximately 99% of MISUMI components are accessible through inCAD Components thus allowing the user to eliminate the tedious steps of configuring part numbers, downloading CADs, saving files and importing them into SolidWorks.”

Also available on the MISUMIUSA.com website, is Rapid Design’s free inCAD Library, which houses hundreds of industrial and factory automation applications using MISUMI components, each including a downloadable Bill of Materials and CAD model.

According to MISUMI President Nobuyuki Ashida, “Our 80 sextillion configurations make us a one-of-a-kind resource for our customers. To make that number even more valuable, however, tools like this will educate and empower customers to tap into the infinite possibilities our components provide. Our independent user testing indicates inCAD Components can cut design time by 30%, and we plan to push that number even higher.”
