StartProto Manufacturing ERP: Seamless Integration with SolidWorks for Efficient Model Management

In today's fast-paced manufacturing industry, effective communication and streamlined processes are essential for success. StartProto Manufacturing ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is a powerful tool designed to meet these requirements by offering an all-in-one solution to manage various aspects of a manufacturing business. One of its most valuable features is the ability to seamlessly integrate with SolidWorks, a popular 3D CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software, through an embed view option. This integration ensures that engineers and designers can efficiently store, access, and collaborate on 3D models made in SolidWorks within the StartProto Manufacturing ERP platform.

Seamless Integration with SolidWorks

SolidWorks is a widely used 3D CAD software that allows engineers and designers to create complex, high-quality 3D models for various manufacturing applications. StartProto Manufacturing ERP recognizes the importance of this design tool and has developed a unique integration feature that enables users to store and access SolidWorks models within its platform. By offering an embed view option, StartProto eliminates the need for manual file transfers, ensuring efficient data management and seamless collaboration among team members.

Storing SolidWorks Models in StartProto Manufacturing ERP

With the embed view option, StartProto users can easily store SolidWorks models within the ERP system. This feature allows engineers and designers to access their design files directly from the ERP platform, saving time and effort that would otherwise be spent on searching for files stored in multiple locations. The embedded view also enables users to preview the 3D models without opening SolidWorks, streamlining the review process and allowing for faster decision-making.

Collaboration and Version Control

One of the significant advantages of integrating SolidWorks with StartProto Manufacturing ERP is the ability to improve collaboration among team members. Users can easily share their SolidWorks models with other team members within the ERP system, facilitating a more efficient exchange of ideas and design updates. Additionally, the ERP platform offers version control features that help teams maintain a clear history of design changes, reducing the risk of errors and miscommunication.

Reducing Production Errors and Costs

By offering seamless integration with SolidWorks, StartProto Manufacturing ERP helps businesses reduce production errors and costs. Accurate and up-to-date design data is readily available within the ERP platform, ensuring that production teams have the information they need to manufacture products correctly. This integration ultimately results in fewer errors, less waste, and more efficient production processes.


StartProto Manufacturing ERP's integration with SolidWorks through an embed view option provides a powerful solution for managing 3D models within a single platform. This seamless integration allows users to store, access, and collaborate on SolidWorks models efficiently, improving communication and reducing production errors. As a result, businesses can streamline their manufacturing processes, ensuring they remain competitive in today's rapidly evolving industry landscape.
