British company Cadonix is proud today to be launching a ground breaking product that will change the way automotive design is performed.
Introducing Arcadia, the world’s first cloud-based general & automotive CAD tool, offering schematic design, animated circuit simulation & analysis, electrical networking, harness design and full design rule checking.
Using a fine balance of cloud back-end and HTML5 front-end the team at Cadonix have achieved what would have thought to be impossible even a year ago, fully scalable vector graphic CAD editing at an enterprise level all accessible from a compliant web browser.
Traditionally such software required a large client footprint, network based licensing servers, a large IT support presence and was file-based with long response times from the software manufacturer to upgrade features and functionality. In a single blow Cadonix have removed all the customers pain points to present a scalable, future-proof solution.
Offering an end-to-end solution from conception to fully produced harness design, cutting lists, bill of materials and design rule reporting from anywhere an engineer cares to be located, Arcadia offers a quantum leap in flexibility over the competition. For ease of distribution, licence management and minuscule footprint Arcadia is set to be a hit with IT support as well as engineers. There is even an Arcadia ‘app’ to keep those engineers and service technicians on the road happy by providing full access to their schematic and harness designs; hinting a mobile future for the platform.
Currently launching right now at the 13th annual Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo in the Milwaukee – USA, Arcadia is proving that UK companies can still turn out world class engineering solutions. With several of the biggest UK and international automotive companies interested in the product, it looks like the next car you will be driving could well have been designed using Arcadia.
When asked, a company founder, Andrew Armstrong stated that harness wiring was merely the beginning of the toolset that will be provided by Arcadia and that CAD and design management tools for all industry sectors are on their way, including aeronautical, rail and military wiring solutions.
