    The goal of this thesis was to automate the construction of manufacturing products in SolidWorks in connection with the ciciVO software that serves as a support tool in the sales of built-in closets. We have developed the SolidWorks add-in that obtains information about a particular product from the project file of the previously mentioned software and uses it to build its 3D model in SolidWorks. For this purpose we had to create a user interface for the add-in and programme the construction algorithm. This included going through the tree structure described in the project file and building the same structure in SolidWorks. In the end just a press of the button is required and in a few minutes the 3D model is ready for production. In this way, we have significantly shortened the process from the sale of the ordered product to production, as the similar manual process previously required several hours of work.
