Speed up your cost estimating process with Costimator with 3DFX



MTI Systems, Inc. declared an exclusive offer for manufacturers to experiment with Costimator, the most recognized cost estimating software, with their own parts.


The software is based on 3DFX, an automatic feature acclaimed module, to create estimates directly out of a 3D CAD model. It measures cycle times together with the cost of manufacturing a part or assembly, on the basis of the attributes of the equipment and shop rates of the suppliers.


Costimator applies industry-approved cost models and time standards which are assembled from over 1,600 manufacturers for the last 30 years and included into a series of database libraries. These contain:


  • Material Speeds and Feeds
  • Process Cost Models
  • Feature-Based Cost Models
  • Parametric Cost Models
  • Worldwide Shop Rates
  • Raw Material Data
  • Assembly Time Standards
  • Handling Time Standards


The most updated version of 3DFX has the ability to identify machining- (milling, drilling and turning) and sheet-metal-type features. It supports the following most important CAD file formats:


Besides, providing cost estimate reports, the software can also create reports for:


  • Process Plans
  • Manufacturing Routing
  • Multi-level Bill of Materials (BOM)
  • Supplier Requests for Quotation (RFQ)
