Festo Design Tool 3D

CAD Data - simple as never before!

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

Tutorial: how does the CAD configuration software work?

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

These product ranges are currently available in the Festo Design Tool 3D. Additional, useful engineering tools can be found here.

Your benefits for design, purchasing and commissioning

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