Production is Always Changing

Faster changes with fewer errors creates competitive advantage

AutoCAD is a good tool but Factory Utilities has been purpose-built to address challenges facing manufacturers today, namely:

  • More frequent changeovers and need for flexible manufacturing
  • Shorter timelines
  • Higher manufacturing complexity

Factory Utilities lets you keep using AutoCAD but has productivity tools to get faster results up to 40% faster.

It helps ID and prevent errors lowering project costs. This includes detailed design tools in 3D, powerful design review tools and the ability to capture the as-is state with point clouds.

Optimize processes earlier in the project. Unique tools for process modelling and material flow allow robust planning of the shop floor.


  • Complete digital manufacturing workflow with Factory Utilities
  • Define manufacturing processes
  • Rough layout and space claim
  • Detailed design of manufacturing space & validate design before build-out
  • Distribute and build to plan
  • Capture and control documentation
  • Factory asset creation & cloud workflows
  • Create custom 2D/3D content with smart connection points
  • Publish, store, and share multi-CAD assets
  • Easily utilize engineering data and create a lightweight representation (shrinkwrap) for layout use
  • Detailed design in 3D
  • Automatically create 3D with Sync function
  • Ensure form, fit, and function
  • Incorporate building models

Factory Design Utilities is part of the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection
