ProEdit’s use of 3D design software lowers costs, improves manuals


ProEdit’s cutting-edge use of 3D design software has drawn the attention of Dassault Systemes, who published a case study showcasing how ProEdit uses 3D technical illustration tools to improve the manuals it creates and reduce the cost of creating them.

“Our clients often ask us to create manuals that are illustration-heavy and word-light in an effort to reduce translation costs,” says Doug Davis, ProEdit’s President and CEO.

“Manuals from companies like Ikea have used this approach rather effectively and are influencing the perception of what a manual should look like. However, creating technical illustrations using traditional methods is very expensive. We made a big investment in Solidworks Composer software to help make this effort more budget-friendly, and our clients consistently love the results. It’s a cliche but it’s true, ‘A picture is worth a thousand words.'”
