Key Functionality

Collaboration with MCAD Systems

Xpedition Layout facilitates communication of design data to mechanical CAD systems using a ProSTEP-approved data exchange standard. Designers are able to communicate between disciplines at any time or frequency, keeping participants in their respective system’s comfort zone.
