KBE seems like a really good concept to save time and money.
I used the free Driveworks version that came with my Solidworks and was not impressed.
I read about one called KBMAX that supports Solidworks on this site.
Anyone know anything about them?
I have seen a demo of KBMAX, and must say that I am impressed. It's clear to me that their developers really understand configurator technology and are making the next evolutionary step in KBE.
I don't work in a company that could use it right now (I'm freelancing), but if I did, I would be adding KBMAX to my toolbox for sure.
