CADLink for Infor Visual
Integrate and synchronize your CAD data with CADLink for VISUAL Manufacturing.

CADLink_Infor_Bidirectional

CADLink for Visual Manufacturing allows engineers to create Part Master and Engineering Master records in your ERP identical to engineering CAD data with the click of a button.

The direct integration eliminates manual data entry and clerical errors. Production and Purchasing and other downstream ERP users benefit from accurate drawing information identical to Engineering Master (EM) documentation.

Increase the speed of data flow from sales to engineering, procurement, and manufacturing. Streamlining the entire product development process by integrating your CAD systems (such as SOLIDWORKS, AutoCAD, CREO, Altium, DxDesigner, CATIA, etc.) and your ERP solution gives you the edge in the competitive market. CADLink will free up your engineering staff to do more engineering and reduce your engineering costs. The less time they spend inputting data across multiple platforms, the more time they can invest on projects and designs.

Keeping your VISUAL engineering data accurate and synchronized with your CAD drawings and models is critical to the growth and success of your business.

With CADLink, you will see significant improvements in production speed, on-time shipments, and Part/EM accuracy with reductions in engineering cost, scrapped parts, and shop floor confusions.

Direct Integration Infor VISUAL Manufacturing

There’s a reason QBuild was chosen as the only Infor Solution Partner providing CAD integration solutions.

We have the skills and experience to have built the best CAD integration available for over a decade (since 2002!). We work together with Infor and your Channel Partner. This ensures a seamless flow from CAD to CADLink to ERP.

Direct ERP Integration

Instantly assign critical fields such as Product Code, UOM, and Part Type. Access data directly from VISUAL to increase ERP visibility for your engineers.

Live Data Comparison

    • Live comparison lets you visually review BOM changes before committing to save.
  • Create Part and Engineering Master records identical to your drawings in one click.

Direct CAD Integration

Real-time, direct, two-way link between your CAD and ERP means no more exporting or importing data files. Launch directly from the CAD suite of your choice. Integrations for all the leading mechanical CAD (such as SolidWorks, CREO/Pro-E, Inventor, etc.) and electrical CAD (Altium, DxDesigner, PADS, AutoCAD Electrical, etc.) packages are available to you.

Interface for indented multi-level Bill of Materials and thumbnail preview image of the CAD part lets you know what you are looking at.

Bi-Directional Connection

Bi-directional data push keeps your CAD and ERP engineering data synchronized and up-to-date. Keep critical information such as your EM quantities and raw material selection consistent throughout your ERP and CAD systems.

Always Compatible

Our partnerships on the CAD and ERP side enable us to always help you connect your software packages. Whether you’re using VISUAL 6.5.4 on premise or VISUAL 8.0 on a hosted server, or exploring the latest CAD technology available from your provider, QBuild has the resources!

QBuild took the time to understand the way we work and were able to provide you the right data transfer solution.
Our CADLink now sets Epicor values by default for all parts, populates Epicor user-defined field population, stores PDF file path storage in Epicor, and sets constrained material selection by default while saving new parts.

I have nothing but praise about my interaction with CADLink. Of all my dealings with software developers in the past, they are one of, if not the best companies that I have dealt with. Their knowledge of the software along with their promptness in coming up with solutions was second to none.
