Customer Challenge

As projects became more complex and deadlines tightened, ICT started assigning design teams to projects and found that their individual preferences slowed progress. “ICT is committed to delivering projects on time and on budget,” said Mitch Nicholson, design manager, ICT. “We recognized that processes that had worked well in the past needed updating and standardization, so we started looking for a solution.”

Project Goals

ICT needed a central repository for drawings and standard parts as well as standardizing on an updated 3D platform. They also wanted to allow for programming and process automation in the design workflow, which was harder to do using AutoCAD.


"We determined that Autodesk Vault provided the central repository we needed for storing standard parts that the team members could access, and we decided to move from AutoCAD to Autodesk Inventor for 3D programming and process automation,” said Mitch. “IMAGINiT recommended that we subscribe to the Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection, which contains the two products we wanted plus many other tools. We confidently moved ahead with the Collection.”

Business Outcome

ICT now benefits from: • An extensive library of standard cooling parts stored in Vault that enables multiple designers to work on the same project without the risk of using the wrong part and causing costly and time-consuming mistakes • Reduced design cycle times, more exploration of design options, and streamlined manufacturing processes by using Inventor software for 3D mechanical design • The elimination of many tedious tasks through automation by using the Inventor iLogic functionality


“Working with the IMAGINiT team to transition our systems to Inventor and Vault was definitely the right decision,” said Mitch. “All our designers and engineers are fully onboard with the changes, and they are enjoying the powerful features that allow them to work together and collaborate on solutions to our customers’ complex cooling challenges.”
