for commissioning SIMILIA

SIMILIA knows no system-related restrictions. It can be integrated into all system landscapes using standardised processes.



Technical data


The Software SIMILIA supports all leading CAD formats. Conversion of data to STL or other interface formats is not required. SIMILIA can be integrated into any system landscape with minimal effort via standardized processes. The KnowledgeBase in SIMUFORM SDM is based on a PostgreSQL database. For the PDM and ERP integration standardized and robust data exchange processes are used. This allows customers to make modifications to this process themselves if required. Long-term and economical maintenance of the overall solution is ensured by SIMUFORM. The integration and commissioning of SIMILIA is realized in a very short time. Our references speak for themselves.

Integration into your system?
Guaranteed simple!

SIMILIA knows no system-related limits or restrictions. It can be integrated into all system landscapes via standardized process flows. This standardized process flow has been developed by SIMUFORM. It is designed to be simple, automated and robust. This means that customers do not have a permanent construction site, because SIMUFORM ensures the permanent operation of its software at the customer's end. The multi-CAD technology processes data from different data sources in parallel. It automatically prepares the searchability of all data. In the process, the data is updated incrementally on a daily basis.
