Make design changes quickly, efficiently and share information throughout the development process with Mastertrim in NX.
Using Mastertrim for design facilitates the creation of a 3D CAD digital twin by streamlining the task of authoring design data that defines a seat trim cover, including sew lines, cover pieces materials, attachments and hardware.
This enables you to make changes quickly, based on more accurate feedback and efficiently share information throughout the development process.
Mastertrim provides seat trim engineers with the tools needed to:
The powerful features of Mastertrim Seat & Interior Design allow you to build a custom solution. Read more about these features below.
With Mastertrim, stylists and engineers can easily communicate priorities and issues via a single platform. Mastertrim is integrated with NX software for CAD, allowing stylists to see the impact of their designs immediately. Mastertrim enables stylists and engineers to easily collaborate to get feedback on potential manufacturing issues and costs.
Creating many designs across multiple CAD models can lead to data management and update challenges.
Mastertrim saves time by uniquely allowing you to define, update, and generate outputs for multiple trim variants within one 3D CAD model.
Obtain all the traditional PLM benefits of bill of materials (BOM) management, revision control, release management and notification systems for trim data with Mastertrim's Teamcenter Publishing functionality.
Mastertrim authors the complete seat trim BOM, including variants, to Teamcenter, as well as reading back in part numbers and revisions to complete the change management cycle.
Create photorealistic renders that include solids, textures and stitching. Rendering in Mastertrim requires no separate software or process for creating renders during the design process, enabling quick feedback and better communication.
Viewing the renders does not require a CAD license and can be done with a stand-alone viewer that anyone can install.
Avoid delays in the seat trim design process and resolve manufacturing errors and issues using producibility simulations to diagnose potential problems early in the design process.
Mastertrim allows you to validate the quality of cover fit digitally, reducing the need for physical prototyping. When issues are uncovered, you have the choice of selecting alternative materials, or to move seams.
Understand the cost implications of your designs. Small changes in a design can have dramatic cost effects. Automatically produce accurate cost estimates early in the process driven by design details such as material area, length of seams, attachments, hardware and seam types.
Overcome a lack of standardized engineering and trim definition processes by providing accurate and precise design data in the form of a digital twin representing your complete seat trim definition. Mastertrim allows you to easily create a complete digital twin representation of the desired seat trim definition, including geometric and non-geometric data, material, seam and attachment types, and material and seam properties.
Automatically generate engineering documentation and eliminate the tedious and error-prone manual process.
Customizable details are incorporated into drawings and documents automatically, including labeling for flat patterns, annotated 3D cross-sections, coloring by material, customizable tables and labeling of isometric views.
Save time and material by developing accurate product flat patterns.
Leverage the seat trim digital twin representation to develop 2D flat patterns automatically. Rule-based automation of notches and sew specifications allows you to ensure that flat patterns are generated based on company-defined rules.
Simplify downstream operations and communicate effectively with the manufacturing floor and suppliers.
By using Mastertrim, manufacturing is able to simplify downstream operations and communicate effectively with the manufacturing floor and suppliers. The Mastertrim digital twin enhances communication of the seat trim definition between design and manufacturing enabling manufacturers to identify producibility issues such as wrinkling and communicate this to designers before a prototype is manufactured.
Exchange data between 2D pattern editing and nesting software with Mastertrim. Format patterns for editing in the 2D editing software of your choice. Existing 2D flat patterns can be imported into Mastertrim and then edited or used to measure areas, perimeter and lengths, as well as generate documents and cost data (providing a two-way link between the 2D editing application and Mastertrim). This allows for legacy data to be brought into the digital twin process.
