What Users Concern about Mobile CAD Software

What do users concern about Mobile CAD Software? Today, let's do a summary of it.

Mobile CAD software was just born several years ago. It is still in the stage of growth, though its development has been in a high speed. The main reason of this situation is the limitation of R&D level and the acceptance of market. Users always expect too much on mobile CAD software, most of users focus on the performance and functions. Let's conclude what users concern about mobile CAD software most today.


1. How to increase the speed of loading and processing CAD drawings

Many kinds of mobile CAD software on the market have a qualified capability of drawings processing, such as AutoCAD WS and GstarCAD MC; but that's when viewing an uncomplicated drawing. However, it is harder for the existing mobile CAD software to open larger or more complicated drawings.

To improve the capability of loading and processing of CAD software, the fundamental way is improving the computing capacity of mobile devices. Besides, it is necessary for developers to exploit the potential of the software; and take the advantage of the maximum performance of the hardware. So, when users open a larger or complicated drawing, they will have a better and higher speed experience.

2. How to improve the network performance

There are two modes of network supporting: one is network application mode by AutoCAD WS; users can only use the software under a network environment. The other one is offline application mode by GstarCAD MC; this mode allows users freely use the software without network, while, the drawings transmission by email makes up the gap of network application.

Both of the two modes are imperfect, the networking of mobile CAD software still has a long way to go. At present, including Gstarsoft, most of CAD developers are exploiting to apply the cloud service on CAD.

3. How to optimize mobile devices

Because mobile CAD comes from PC, there are many similarities on the usage method with the traditional CAD software. So, it can keep the working habits of users, however, the mobile devices are not optimized enough. The experience on such a small thing is still competitive with PC ends.

To change this situation, mobile CAD developers need to do the research on the special requirements and optimization on mobile application, such as how to take the advantages of the gravity sensor and light sensor on the mobile devices. If CAD developers can achieve a breakthrough on those functions, the mobile CAD software will be accepted by most of users in the future undoubtedly.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
