HASCO offers attractive tools for optimising design processes. The Catia native database, which has been specially designed for users of the Catia Software, supports the mould design process with native data. These are directly available in the system. The standard mould parts contain the parametric structure of the components and are kept constantly up-to-date by HASCO and various CAD partners. The main advantage of the native data compared with STEP files or other exchange formats is the ease with which the components can be modified. The consistency in the system enables the designer to modify the data rapidly. The manufacturer data, such as the order reference and the name of the product are also defined in the attributes. This considerably facilitates the handling of the data in parts lists. The data are compiled in Catia V5 R2014 and can be downloaded here.
