“Rather than seeking to simply avoid problems, by using tolerance-based optimization early in the product development process, well up-front of traditional CAD, we’re able to use Enventive to target and achieve optimized design solutions and aggressively establish competitive product offerings.” – Yves Le Pottier, Electrical Device Supplier
Enventive models are comprehensive, working representations of a part—not just sketches of geometric objects. With its cohesive geometric modeling, assemblies, equation solving, backsolving, and design optimization, our users describe Enventive Concept as “the best-ever conceptual design tool.” A familiar Windows interface, seamlessly integrated Excel, and availability of ANSI standard GD&T callouts make Enventive Concept exceptionally easy to learn and use.
Customers estimate that 80-95% of their problems are 2D. Because Enventive Concept is 2D and 2D tolerance models are at least an order of magnitude easier to build and understand, users can build Enventive models much faster and easier. When comparing Enventive Concept with competitors, a principal engineer at a major appliance manufacturer stated, “With Enventive Concept , engineers can achieve 80% of the tasks with 20% of the effort and time.”

Our conceptual design abilities combined with Enventive Concept’s tolerance analysis and design optimization tools make Enventive Concept a superior tool for mechanical engineering design. One Enventive customer tells us that using Enventive Concept is 10 times faster than using their CAD system for his mechanical engineering design projects:
“We can conceptualize design concepts 10 times faster in Enventive than we can with our native CAD system. The Enventive constraint model lets us evaluate design changes as quickly as we can think of the changes… in fact, the software often leads the designer to these changes.” – Yves Le Pottier, Electrical Device Supplier
