SEER-3D generates costs from any CAD system to accurately and efficiently get manufacturing cost into the hands of Designers, Cost Engineers, and Supply Chain — so all can quantify cost directly from CAD models.

Up to 70% of the life cycle cost of a new product is determined during the design phase. Evaluate cost saving alternatives while still meeting design requirements.  Know how each design alternative or trade will impact costs, suppliers and time to market.  Make versus buy, vendor selection, material selection: SEER-3D provides costs for all from 3D CAD models.  Establish cost targets and obtain them with SEER-3D. Avoid costly supply chain surprises downstream.
