Dumaco: A One-Stop Metalworking Shop

The Dumaco brand was officially launched in 2018 as a one-stop shop for all metalworking needs. Originally comprised of three companies that combined forces, today Dumaco has over 700 employees in its Montfort, Netherlands, headquarters and six additional locations. The company offers solutions for all sheet metal and pipe work at the component level and complete sheet metal assemblies with the option of mechanical post-processing, post-treatment, or coating.

“We use SOLIDWORKS® 3D CAD and the DraftSight® 2D drawing package,” explains Team Leader of Innovation, Frits Van Den Hogen. “Many customers work in 3D assemblies, but you also have a group of customers who are still in 2D migrating to 3D.”

By using DraftSight and SOLIDWORKS together, Dumaco can effectively serve all its customers regardless of their software. The company also uses DraftSight to help program its laser machines and press breaks.

Easy to Use and Access

DraftSight is a professional grade 2D CAD software that can create, edit, view, and markup any 2D drawing or DWG file. The feature-rich software is used across architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, and other industries.

“I use DraftSight to read and edit drawings from our customers so that they are technically correct and manufacturable with our machines,” says Maurice Van Lieshout, Engineer at Dumaco. “DraftSight is very fast and easy.”

Because Dumaco already used SOLIDWORKS network licenses, it quickly integrated DraftSight with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD using the same network license manager. This enabled the company to add DraftSight licenses to existing network license pools, which freed up the use of DraftSight across the organization.

“We are satisfied with [both] programs,” states Van Den Hogen. Dumaco loves both products because they are easy to use, and it is easy to share knowledge, even with production staff, by using viewers. According to Maurice Van Lieshout, Engineer, “We can achieve what we want to do very quickly. What is sometimes even more difficult in 3D is sometimes easier to adjust in 2D. Yes! And that’s the advantage of working with DraftSight!”

DraftSight is more cost-effective solution than AutoCAD® and fully compatible with its DWG files, making it a viable alternative for users who need to collaborate with AutoCAD users or work with legacy DWG files.
