CAD configuration software Festo Design Tool 3D

The Festo Design Tool 3D is a 3D product configurator for generating Festo-specific CAD product combinations. It will make your search for matching accessories, e.g. for pneumatic cylinder series DSBC, DSNU and ADN, faster, more reliable and easier in the future.

Short video: The CAD configuration software that offers you great benefits.

Create graphic models of your cylinder module, including Festo accessories, in your preferred CAD format. The Festo Design Tool 3D then generates an order code with which you can order the module straight away, either fully pre-assembled or as individual components – always shipped in a single box.

These product families can currently be found in the Festo Design Tool 3D and further useful engineering tools are available here.

Your benefits for design, purchasing and commissioning

  • Quick and easy automated generation of product combinations
  • Shorter bills of materials, fewer sources of error and optimised ordering processes thanks to a single order code for the entire module
  • Native CAD models for retaining CAD/component links (CAD constraints, CAD mates)
  • Reduced documentation and simple traceability: generate PDF module drawings and bills of materials within FDT 3D and query the traceable order code in the Support Portal
  • Simplified, accelerated warehousing and assembly processes
  • Product portfolio for readily available standard components such as cylinders from the DSBC, DSNU and ADN series
