Gray fields   represent parts to be removed from your APplus BOM.

Powerful Visual Interface

Engineers are visual people. That is why APplus CADLink offers a highly visual and intuitive interface to display BOM changes and data discrepancies.

Eliminate Duplicate Manual Data Entries

APplus CADLink’s single-step process eliminates duplicate manual data entries of engineering data in your APplus ERP.

Powerful Searches

Perform a live search in your APplus Item Master and insert raw materials and non CAD modeled items to your  bill of materials. Create a complete BOM for your shop floor; not just what your engineers modeled.

Small Footprint

No dedicated IT department? No problem! CADLink is a client-based application with a minute hardware and software requirements. CADLink installation requires no additional database or server components, keeping a footprint as light as your work time will be.

Direct CAD Integration

Your engineers live and breathe inside their CAD system and they love it! So let’s keep it that way and let CADLink connect your CAD system to APplus.

Real-time, direct, two-way link between your CAD and APplus allows your engineers to compare, create, and update APplus Item Master and BOM records right from the comfort of the CAD system of your choice. An intuitive interface displays indented multi-level BOM and thumbnail preview image of the CAD part so you know what you are looking at. Integrations for all the leading mechanical and electrical CAD, as well as woodworking and structural CAD packages are available to you.

Direct ERP Integration

Set default value or assign critical APplus fields such as Inventory UOM, Part Class, Part Group, etc. CADLink lets you access APplus data to see ERP drop-down fields and search Item Master to insert raw materials and non CAD modeled items to your BOM.

Live Data Comparison

Take control of your changes. The live comparison feature lets you visually review BOM changes before committing to save. The changes and discrepancies between the two systems are colour coded to let you know what will be affected in both systems! 

Bi-Directional Connection

A key to any successful relationship is two-way communication. CAD – ERP integration is no exception to this! APplus CADLink can write back to your CAD model properties to keep your CAD engineering data in sync with your APplus data.

Always Compatible

Our partnerships with APplus and your CAD provider enable us to always keep your CADLink current, working seamlessly and with no down-times during version upgrades. QBuild has the resources to develop a custom solution to satisfy your needs while tightly following your company standards.
