Dassault Systèmes launched SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design, the second SOLIDWORKS application on its 3DEXPERIENCE platform, at the SOLIDWORKS 2015 event in Arizona, US, this week.
The software is the second SOLIDWORKS application to be introduced on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, following the 2014 launch of SOLIDWORKS Conceptual Design (formerly called SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual).
The application accelerates the product design process by providing engineers with an intuitive cloud-based tool to design and collaborate on complex organic shapes from the initial concept planning stages to the final product. This helps to accelerate development and time-to-market, and lower costs.
“The needs of the CAD user community has been a beacon of technological innovation and we are committed to developing tools that respond to evolutions in the product design process, from a technical perspective as well as a collaborative one,” said Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes. “With SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design and our 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we want engineers to be able to rely on powerful, accessible technologies that facilitate their work and result in significant business advantages.”
SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design offers a flexible, intuitive single modelling environment that improves the overall industrial design process. It provides social design capabilities and transparent data management that allow engineers and designers to quickly solve industrial design challenges and easily transition to mechanical design.
Designers can create complex 3D shapes and add mechanical data directly to a model without changing product design software or environment. Other features include concept sketching, integrated freeform and parametric surface/solid modelling, direct editing, realistic rendering and simplified design evolution tools.
Users can securely store and access data on the cloud, enabling them to share designs, collaborate on ideas, save and evaluate multiple concepts.
