To bring rich, seamlessly integrated PLM functionality to AutoCAD users through intuitive access to SmarTeam menus, from within the familiar AutoCAD environment. When implemented with other CAD integrations, SmarTeam AC Integration creates the conditions necessary for common collaboration among mixed-CAD engineering teams.
SmarTeam AC Integration (ACI) brings the benefits of collaborative PLM to AutoCAD users, enabling work in the native AutoCAD environment while leveraging ENOVIA SmarTeam s collaborative backbone to access, manage and share engineering data directly from within the AutoCAD environment. SmarTeam AC Integration maintains AutoCAD-specific links, such as Xrefs and Xref Overlays, their direction to AutoCAD documents, and all references, ensuring ease of access and structural integrity throughout the SmarTeam database. Users can apply lifecycle behaviors to specific link types, for accurate capturing of true design intent. SmarTeam - AC Integration eliminates the need to re-key data, as well as inefficient work on outdated designs, dramatically reducing errors and saving valuable time.
ENOVIA SmarTeam creates a true multi-CAD environment, enabling AutoCAD users to deploy additional CAD Integrations on their desktop. ENOVIA SmarTeam enables the enterprise to manage all CAD and related product data from a single collaborative PLM system, providing a common collaborative platform among diverse engineering teams.
SmarTeam AC Integration is an add-on product to SmarTeam Editor (EDR).
