Get all the details in our Dixon Valve Case Study published with SOLIDWORKS, to discover how our Xometry Add-In created a one-stop shop within Dixon's design workspace to greatly increase efficiency.

Through downloading our Add-In, Dixon Valve & Coupling was able to gain access to cost and manufacturability information for greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness, and drive automation using faster access to manufacturing services, all while designing in SOLIDWORKS.

The Challenge:

    • Provide direct access to manufacturing services including costing, methodology, and ordering information from within a 3D design environment.

The Solution:

    • Xometry's instant quoting Add-In within SOLIDWORKS & on demand manufacturing services.

The Results:

    • Cut fixture production time from weeks to days
    • Determined cost and suitability of production approaches while designing
    • Reduced fixture production costs
    • Realized 24/7 access to manufacturing services
