Habitat Industries Chooses ZW3D to Optimize Mold Designing and Manufacturing

Guangzhou, China: January 21, 2014ZW3D, a leading supplier of 3D CAD/CAM solutions for the AEC and MCAD industries, announced on January 21 that it has been selected by Habitat Industries for its powerful integration of CAD and CAM to boost the design and manufacture of blow molding.
Based in Cape Town, fully networked Habitat Industries is a CNC only tool-room, specializing in the manufacture of blow mold tooling from Extrusion to PET blow molds. This dynamic and innovative company uses the latest technology in order to consistently achieve above standards.
The Requirements

Based on a strong local and international customer base in the packaging industry, Habitat Industries stays competitive and always looks to improve. In a bid to optimize their workflow with a budget-friendly solution, they were trying to find an all-in-one CAD/CAM package with timely technical support.
The Solution

Habitat Industries benefits from the introduction of ZW3D CAD/CAM in the following three main aspects.
Optimization of Operational Costs

To reduce the operating costs of the CAD/CAM system, one should take into account the initial purchase price, annual renewals, and training and implementation costs.
“ZW3D seems to be the best all-round package thus far,” said Donovan Barnes, the owner of Habitat Industries. “It is fast, easy to pick up and learn to use, offering the best value for money. Additionally, the backup service is the best I’ve come across in the past 16 years, and any software problems get solved almost instantly.”
Design Process Optimization.
Habitat Industries relies on ZW3D to boost mold design in the following aspects
“From a design perspective, mold design is simplified and is about 50% faster,” said Donovan, “I’m also impressed that ZW3D is capable of taking a point-cloud scan and simply generating a surface to the points within seconds,” he added.

Manufacturing Process Optimization.
“I believe that ZW3D will take on a leadership role in its industry, because they adjust the software to problems encountered and react almost immediately. Based on customer feedback, the software will develop really fast in the near future,” said Donovan.
ZW3D is cost-effective CAD/CAM software for 3D modeling, mold design, and machining, which takes engineers from concept to finished product in one easy-to-use, single collaborative environment. http://www.zwsoft.com/ZW3D/
