Houdini - Designing faster, smarter and more accurately with iLogic


Symetri introduced Houdini to iLogic, part of the Inventor suite, which can automate a large part of the design process, even for bespoke designs.

For over 50 years, Houdini has been offering a bespoke sizing service for aluminium frame marine windows, hatches and doors. Every vessel requires a unique combination of window sizes and shapes.

Houdini are constantly looking to refine their design processes so they can give their customers a fast turnaround time. They were looking for a partner to assist with their progress.

Symetri was selected after Houdini heard about their experience and expertise in the product design and manufacturing industries. Symetri introduced them to iLogic, part of the Inventor suite, which can automate a large part of the design process, even for bespoke designs.

By implementing iLogic, it has freed up time for Houdini’s designers to work on new products and innovation, rather than concentrate on the small details of their everyday work. Symetri have helped Houdini revolutionise what they can offer their customers in terms of design solutions. They can now bring more products to the market than ever before and seen an increase in turnover of 40% since introducing Inventor and iLogic into their business.

Design is faster, smarter, more accurate than ever before, and Houdini’s customers are seeing the benefits.
