Being amongst one of the best providers of Design and Manufacturing Automation solutions in India, since its inception in 2001, BEACON has grown both in its operational base as well as customers across the small, medium and large sectors. With this vast experience, BEACON has now forayed into the Woodworking / Furniture Industry with SWOOD Solutions by EFICAD which can help Design to Manufacturing.
EFICAD is established and provides a CAD/CAM software for education purposes.
EFICAD develops its first woodworking oriented CAD/CAM software.
EFICAD becomes a SOLIDWORKS Certified Solution Partner.
Upgrade of mechanical FAO solutions towards parametric 3D platform.
Ambition to offer a 3D solution for manufacturers and woodworking through the SOLIDWORKS software.
EFICAD employs 5 people.
EFICAD offers a complete range of solutions with its SWOOD portfolio. The complete software suite that speeds up all your projects!
EFICAD's team is constantly working together to develop user-friendly and performing software that fit seamlessly within one unique interface: SOLIDWORKS.
Do you want to improve and speed up your projects?
Are you interested in a complete and unique solution to go from design to manufacturing?
Would you like to take advantage of a unique environment that meets even your most complex needs?
SWOOD Design is a 3D parametric design software to create custom wood projects and cabinets. Manage materials, automate tasks, and create personalized reports within the SOLIDWORKS ecosystem.
Create & modify any custom designs using parametric capabilities. Our design solution offers wood specific features ideal for furniture modelling, interior fittings, & other complex projects.
Several outputs available (csv, html, excel…)
SWOOD CAM efficiently processes design information to program your CNC machines. Run simulations, generate production programs, and ensure smooth production – all within a single manufacturing software.
Send your 3D designs directly to the CNC machines like HOMAG, BIESSE, SCM, etc, by generating machine specific programs. Control your point-to-point processes with guaranteed machine compatibility.
From 3 to 5 axis continuous
Control of machines (Homag, Biesse, SCM, IMA, Holzer, Felder, Masterwood, Maka...)
Drilling block, aggregates, horizontal spindle, edge banding aggregates...
With Material Removal
Cut lists Program lists Tools lists Labels
Interfaces (woodWOP, BSolid, Maestro, Xilog, ImaWOP, BiesseWorks, TPA, NC-Hops...)
in the SOLIDWORKS view
Between SOLIDWORKS geometry and machining
SWOOD Nesting is an add-on to SWOOD CAM that optimizes material usage, reduces machining times, and creates specific strategies to ensure a smooth nesting process.
Optimize panel nesting with versatile strategies, including stay-down contour, panel labelling, and efficient holding methods (bridges, milling order). Achieve consistent results with grain matching!
SWOOD Center is an advanced automation solution that connects ERPs & sales configurators to SWOOD to streamline woodworking projects.
It bridges the gap between customer orders, SOLIDWORKS design, and production data by accurately converting orders into detailed production information.
SWOOD BW (Beam & Wall) is a software dedicated to timber and frame construction.
Thanks to the 3D parametric design capabilities, it allows the creation of complex and custom construction projects with their production.
