Computer Aided Design


We use Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Autodesk® Inventor® Publisher software to create 3D models and technical manuals.

Giving customers a highly-accurate visual representation of bespoke work at height equipment is invaluable in the development process.

User documentation is a vital part of customer experience by enabling users to have first-hand interaction with the product, sometimes even before the product is ready for delivery. The Publisher software is intuitive as in it recognises any amendments made to the original version and automatically updates the end result, logically referenced to the original CAD render.

CAD also helps us evaluate designs and extract vital information for the purposes of technical manuals. It is used to simulate flat-packing equipment into a container, ready for shipping, which is vital for customers and our own project managers.

Planet Platforms operates the Quality Management System, ISO 9001:2008, which covers both the design and manufacture of access equipment using aluminium, steel and fibreglass to customers’ particular requirements and accepted industry standards.
