Diverse Client List, New Ideas, and Staying on Schedule with PTC Creo FMX

Have you ever seen an electronic billboard that’s also a Wi-Fi telephone cell? How about a solar-powered parking communication tower? That’s the challenge when you run an industrial design firm—clients might ask you to develop anything, even products for technologies so new, you don’t have much to build on. Just a loose idea and maybe a set of specs.

The concept design? That’s IDnA’s job.

Based in Antwerp, IDnA (Industrial Design and Assembly) produces artifacts for a dizzying array of clients. IDnA designers have created modems for Alcatel, pet carriers for Pet Concept, medical equipment for Terumo, and dozens of other products.

IDNA designs

No matter the customer, IDnA takes the design from concept to prototype. Its engineers can even create assembly drawings and user’s manuals for clients, or manufacture a limited number of items.

But IDnA doesn’t do it alone. With so many different customers, capabilities, and projects, the company enlisted a good tool to create concept designs, reduce design time, and smoothly work in last-minute changes.

That’s PTC Creo’s job.

IDnA uses PTC Creo 2.0 with the PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension (FMX) to edit parametric designs faster, select geometry, including surfaces and shapes, move, remove, attach, round, and more.

At PTC, we learned from talking to manufacturers everywhere that 3 of every 5 CAD users struggle with late stage design changes, working with design data from others in the supply chain, and easily evolving concept designs from existing models.

PTC Creo and PTC Creo FMX address just those concerns. That means that working with a client to find the perfect design, no matter the development stage, is painless. And that means, for IDnA, deadlines aren’t threatened by last-minute changes.

PTC partner CadCorner tells us that IDnA today is handling last-minute changes to their product designs better than ever. To find out more about a flexible modeling approach, why not visit the resource center.
