Dorner Manufacturing (Harland, Wis.) has developed its Configurator tool, which is a 2D and 3D CAD platform that allows users to build complete conveyor assemblies to their exact specifications. The CAD tool allows users to download a single model of the complete assembled conveyor, dramatically saving the time spent matching up individual files. The model is available in a variety of CAD formats and an interactive 3D PDF. According to the company, the Configurator uses conveyor logic to only place applicable matching conveyor components together, so that an erroneous design cannot be designed. When the design is complete, customers receive part numbers and detailed descriptions of all components, information to receive a quote and the CAD files.
