How it works:

Schritt 1

Upload a CAD model

Select a sample from our database or upload your own model (after registration).

The following file formats are supported:

SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Autodesk Inventor, Siemens NX, CATIA V5, Creo Parametric, JT (with XT-Brep), STEP, S3D.

Your models are protected: After the analysis of the original model, your information is only stored in simus’ own s3d format. The original files will not be stored and can therefore not fall into the hands of unauthorized people. Your models do not leave German borders as the servers are located in Germany.

Schritt 2

Calculation

A preliminary calculation is performed based on the geometry of the part and the defined parameters. As a registered user, you can customize machine data, processing times, additional charges and more.

Processing techniques of turned, milled, flat and bent parts are supported in our calculations. Further processing techniques are in the process of being integrated.

For our sample models (without registration), the processing is calculated based on typical machine-parts-manufacturers located in central Europe. Fine finishing steps resulting from annotated tolerance values are not taken into account. For the calculation, we use empirical data from the classmate PLAN software based on the implementation for renowned industrial clients who we have been working with for many years.

After registration, you can customize the technology data (hourly rates for machines, additional charges, setup times etc.) to your company.

Schritt 3

See the manufacturing costs instantly

The result of the cost calculation is clearly presented by set up costs and costs per unit, furthermore, setup costs and costs per unit are also shown in relation to the lot size. The color-coded cost distribution is instantly visible in the 3D preview of the part.

The calculation is performed with the highest degree of accuracy based on the information available. Based on our extensive experience and empirical data, you will receive a solid result. In any case, a validity check of the calculation is required by the user. Liability for the accuracy and completeness of the results cannot be assumed.

„You won’t need to consult a crystal ball from now on.“

With costing24 you can automatically calculate quotation prices and production times based on CAD models. All production-relevant characteristics are automatically evaluated. Within seconds, you receive a detailed costing proposal that shows setup and unit costs, as well as production times and CO2 emissions. Delivered as Software-as-a-Service, the solution is ready to use with no configuration required.

However, you can also customize costing24 to suit your business. This allows you to customize the calculation results based on the hourly rates of your machines. You can make the adjustments quickly and easily online.

You can test costing24 for 10 days free of charge. After this period you will have the option to sign up for a monthly subscription. No risk – our service can be canceled on a monthly basis.

costing24 is the perfect solution for the online calculation of parts to be produced by turning, milling, bending and drilling processing techniques.

  • Find out quickly how much the part costs

  • Spot especially expensive elements

  • Take advantage of potential savings

  • Benefit from knowing costs early in price negotiations with suppliers

  • Make solid make-or-buy decisions

  • Calculate quotes in seconds

Pricing / How you benefit from the costing24 registration

  • Calculate own models and save them

    As a registered user, you benefit from the professional calculation and the extensive experience on your own models. You can access the last 100 models you calculated again at any time. These will be stored for 30 days.

  • Customize machine data

    You can customize machine data in line with your circumstances, e.g. hourly rate, cutting parameters, setup time, auxiliary processing time and programming costs.

  • Test it for free

    You can test costing24 for 10 days free of charge. After this period you will have the option to sign up for a monthly subscription. No risk – our service can be canceled on a monthly basis.

  • From €200 / month

    200 calculations per month are included. Additional calculation packages can be added as needed. Can be cancelled monthly!

Frequently asked questions – FAQ

What is costing24?

With costing24, you calculate the manufacturing costs of your parts online – only using the CAD model.

  • Super fast calculation of manufacturing costs of turned, milled and bent parts.
  • Highly developed by years of fine tuning simus systems calculation algorithms in numerous projects and various companies.
  • Provides extensive options to customize technology data for the individual calculation.

What does costing24 cost?

A free test mode is available in which you can calculate given sample models to try the functions. After the registration, you can upload your own models and customize your technology data. The first 10 days after registration are free, subsequently, the charge of €200 per 200 calculations are due per month. Further packages can be added on demand at an additional charge.

How does costing24 know the manufacturing costs?

Our data is based on on algorithms and best practice values of our classmate PLAN software which has been performing for renowned clients in the industry. More information on classmate PLAN »

Which processing techniques is costing24 suitable for?

Parts to be produced by turning, milling, drilling and bending processing techniques.

Which formats are supported?

The following 3D CAD models are supported: SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Autodesk Inventor, Siemens NX, CATIA V5, Creo Parametric, JT (with XT-Brep), STEP, S3D (format developed by simus classmate). costing24 works independently from the modeling method used. A 3D solid is a mandatory requirement. 2D models or 3D surface models are not supported.

How can I add or remove processing techniques?

The suggested processing techniques correlate with machines suitable for processing. In “Settings”, you can activate machines you require for the calculation or deactivate those you do not wish to use.

How does costing24 protect my CAD data?

Your models are protected: After the analysis of the original model, the data is stored as the s3d format developed by simus systems. The original files will not be stored and will therefore not fall into unauthorized hands. Your models will not leave German borders as the servers are located in Germany. Other users of costing24 cannot access your data.

Which devices can I use costing24 on?

Can be used in any common current browser, as well as on mobile devices.

What is classmate PLAN and how does it differ from costing24?

classmate PLAN is a locally installed software which is integrated to the unique requirement of company processes and infrastructure in the long term in order to precalculate parts and assemblies made by your own company before work scheduling. Additionally, work schedules are generated automatically. costing24 is a web-based software providing several customizing options and therefore calculates manufacturing costs quickly and easily.
