The experience of DAU began long ago, from production management and supervision programs for CNC machines in the field of modular furniture (kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, living). Building on the lessons learned in the field, DAU has undertaken the development of the first three-dimensional product configurator for the furniture industry. Thanks to the success of this solution, DAU could specialize in the product configuration niche. Today the flagship software is 3cad evolution, the fourth-generation configurator developed over 20 years during which, starting from the factory flow management, the range has expanded to the management of the order, the creation of dynamic BOM, the generation of printouts, three-dimensional presentation, multimedia and rendering. All this having in mind the concept of supply chain integration. DAU today claims 3cad evolution as the only effective real cross-solution that allows the end customer, the shop and the factory to communicate in a unique platform.
The success of 3cad evolution in the furnishing branch has allowed us to make ourselves known in the world and, above all, to be able to apply our product configurator also in other areas such as the windows and doors, the internal and armored doors, the concert stages, the vans fittings, machinery for bakeries, tents and garden structures and in general all products that have a strong component of variability

Our customer

Our solutions are aimed at those companies that make complex products and believe the innovation process and the structural reorganization are basic elements to be able to compete successfully in the global market. Over the past 10 years, the production system has had a breakthrough that experts believe epochal and comparable to the steam engine of the first industrial revolution. This change is now referred to as "Industry 4.0" and stands for the computerization of production companies as the traditional manufacturing industry with the objective of creating the Smart Factory, characterized by adaptability, efficiency and ergonomics, in addition to the creation of partnerships in business ecosystems and value processes. Our graphic product configurator "3cad evolution" is in this perspective, the key solution for the structured management of the complexity of the order entry and implementation of the same with lean production techniques, also called "lotto uno".

Dau Srl is a software house situated in Pieve di Soligo (Italy) that has been developing, selling and installing in companies its graphic product configurator since 1994. Initially we have started working with local furniture companies, sector where the graphic tool is indispensable to acquire and to put in to production orders. In 2000 the “3cad Group” was established that united Dau Srl with other 2 firms (Apra Informatica Srl from Jesi and Intres Srl from Milan) with an extensive know-how in the furniture manufacturing sector. This is the fundamental map that places Dau Srl in the condition to start a path which allows it to be known over the entire national territory. Thanks to this agreement a new project is launched and therefore a new configurator called “3cad” that will become a brand reference in the furniture manufacturing sector intended as bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, living-rooms, offices and upholstered furniture. We have continuously participated to several specialized exhibitions such as the Milan Furniture Saloon, the Zow of Pordenone (now SICAM), the Verona exhibition and local exhibitions such as Erba and Pesaro.
In 2007 we began working on an ambitious project called “3cad evolution” with a new high performance graphic engine which also allows the element movements. Moreover we have also begun experimenting the use of the software and its relative archives on the web platform with excellent performances. With “3cad evolution” new horizons are opened especially because new functions also permits to use the configurator on products outside the furniture sector; windows, gates, curtains, top, shelving, machines, concert stages, etc… Furthermore we have started to go international with the product, by translating the software in the most common languages, hiring foreign language consultants and researching of partners abroad. Up to date we have consolidated partners in Russia, Brazil and Germany. We are consolidating technical/business structures in England, Portugal, France and Poland. In 2013 we can count on over 400 companies (80% furniture sector) that use “3cad evolution” and over 25.000 sales outlets in the “Lite” version. We have over 100 among consultants and software programmers located in Italy and abroad. We are participating continuously to exhibitions in Russia (Moscow), Germany and England.

Integrating the sales network in real time

Access via the Web to catalogues on the company server, guarantees an immediate update of available information to retailers and enables activation real time. All these procedures are managed by a user friendly control panel.


Automated and centralised management of orders

The retailer activated by the company calculates the quote from his price list and sends the order to the manufacturer with just one click.

Once the order has been recovered by the manufacturer and all necessary checks are carried out, it is then automatically processed for production.


Producing dynamic bills of materials

The dynamic bill of materials generated from the order graphics allows full and correct production data to be obtained and updated, even if modifications have been made on the composition of the furniture.


Integrating with ERP

The “open” structure of the software means it can be easily integrated in real time with any company’s management systems. The graphic software integrates and re-uses the information already present in the company (client details, tables, variables) in order to guarantee a unique, shared database.


Custom technical documents

The output of technical documents (procurement lists, production and packing labels, department print-outs) is customized in layout and contents according to the companies production needs.


On-line Feeding N/C work centres

From the graphic order all the interface information required by the NC machine are generated. Both standard and non standard elements are processed in the same way. The machines and lines can be integrated in a network, linked to a barcodes’ system that recognises the elements automatically.


Independent management of the rules and graphics database

The three-dimensional “graphic” catalogue and the “rules” can be developed and integrated by the client’s own properly qualified and trained personnel.

In this way the client is autonomous, prompt and precise in updating all information.
