Software support to design your own aluminium profile application

04 October 2017

MiniTec modular aluminium profile systems and components are not complex, yet the design requirements of many customers are often limitless.

Intuitive software support is a must – MiniTec offer two solutions

1. An intuitive iCAD design package allows the customer to put together his own design - the software will select the optimum components to meet the design.

MiniTec iCAD online is the comfortable way to select and configure the hardware of a modular profile design. It covers all planning and construction requirements comprehensively. The combination of components and software enables the entire potential for rational, flexible and modern mechanical engineering to be tapped.

MiniTec iCAD assembler features:

• 3D design tool for MiniTec components

• 90 percent time savings for users

• Planning and design of components and systems independently of CAD software

• CAD functionality without requiring your own CAD software

• Easy to use due to special anchors, line snap points and Drag & Drop

• Enables faster assembly of components

• Direct interfaces with all common CAD systems such as: Mechanical Desktop, ProEngineer, Solid Works, Solid-Edge, MegaCAD, etc.

• More than 50 data output formats in 2D and 3D

There is also an automated design module for: 

• Linear axes, slideways, conveyor belts, workstations

• 3D design tool for MiniTec components

• Planning and design of components and systems independent of CAD software.

2. iOS App: The Minitec App for iOS helps calculate the deflection of aluminium profile systems and linear slideways. 

The App – free from iTunes – will calculate values for applications in both vertical and horizontal designs. The values for both load and length are stored until the application has been completed thus making a comparison of different profile systems quick and easy.
