LB Foster Materials Handling has upgraded its computer-aided design (CAD) software from 2D to 3D. The £50,000 investment will be rolled out to several stations in various departments within the company’s facility.
The new Solidworks 3D software package will enable LB Foster to create 3D graphical representations of project solutions throughout the design process. The update to 3D will benefit customers by improving the quality and reliability of designs, allowing any problems to be picked up quicker and amended more accurately.
The upgrade is part of LB Foster’s continuous plans to deliver high quality projects to all customers across a broad spectrum of industries. Further benefits from updating to 3D CAD software include increased productivity and an aesthetically improved design process for both the customer and the company.
