Bosch Rexroth Construction of machine frames in a CAD environment

FRAMEpro – the intelligent CAD plug-in

Use the CAD data for over 1,500 products in Bosch Rexroth’s aluminum profile range

Plug-in for constructing machine frames and housings in a familiar CAD environment

With the FRAMEpro CAD plug-in, Bosch Rexroth brings its proven modular aluminum profile system for machine frames and housings into the Autodesk® Inventor CAD environments and SolidWorks from Dassault.

Construct machine frames in your familiar environment – from the 3D line model to the parts list – and take advantage of our features:

  • Integrated component library with approx. 1500 products
  • Plausibility check
  • Automatically produced parts and order lists
CAD plug-in for 3D constuction of machine housings with aluminum profiles.
The intelligent FRAMEpro plug-in offers practical functions and streamlines your construction processes.

SIMPLE

Lean processes including ordering:

The selected profiles are placed in a 3D line model and can also be rotated. Accessories such as connectors, cover caps, bases and wheels can then be placed on the profiles.

FRAMEpro automatically generates a parts list for your model so that you can request a quotation or place an order. Once the construction process is complete, FRAMEpro lists the strut profiles used including the necessary cutting and drilling.

The FRAMEpro plug-in from Bosch Rexroth offers intelligent macros for automatically placing components.

QUICK

Automatic connections and intelligent macros:

With the help of intelligent macros, connections are produced automatically. Profile configuration processes which match the particular connector type are also set automatically. Other prepared macros make it easier to incorporate panel elements and doors.

The intelligent FRAMEpro plug-in from Bosch Rexroth helps you to construct machine frames without errors.

ERROR-FREE

Always up to date:

FRAMEpro complements the relevant CAD environment by adding a library which is updated by Bosch Rexroth on an ongoing basis. All models and data it contains are therefore up to date at all times. Because CAD data no longer need to be transferred from external sources, manual imports, transmission errors or duplicate data are now a thing of the past.
