Since 1996, Rillos Engineering has supplied the aviation supply-chain with CNC programs, Tool Designs and Composite layups for complex aircraft parts and tools.
We acquired our first licensed seat of CATIA ®V5 in 2001 and began training students at our facilities with the same proven CATIA ®V5 best-practices and relational design techniques that we use in our day-to-day business. As most designs involve change at some point, our emphasis has always been on creating the most effective designs that are easy to modify and adapt to virtually any situation.
In 2004, after years of providing specialized training and industry feedback we created XDT Software, to focus on CATIA® training. XDT Software has pioneered unique web-based simulation training, which is in-use at www.v5train.com.
Another synergistic outcome of our services to the aviation supply-chain is www.mbdcentral.com – an automated service bureau which enables vendors to upload MBD (Model Based Definition) models and retrieve a derivative PDF set of documents which contain all data needed for manufacturing and inspection.
XDT Software has also developed other VB.NET-based software products to further leverage CATIA® V5 data with manufacturing data.
Customizable products include:
- Web based PDM-lite system
- Leading utilities that can streamline 3D-to-flat-pattern morphing, importing of laser-projection data into CATIA® V5, FiberSIM interoperability with Microsoft Excel models, APTsource Post Processors
