Dassault Systemes launches SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design

Dassault Systemes, a specialist in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock
Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, announces SOLIDWORKS
Industrial Design, which accelerates industrial product design through social
collaboration on the cloud.

The second SOLIDWORKS application on Dassault Systemes’ 3DEXPERIENCE
platform, the new product, which was unveiled at the SOLIDWORKS World 2015 Conference
in Phoenix, Arizona, embraces the social, conceptual and collaborative design
world in today’s age of experience. SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design accelerates
the product design process by providing engineers with an intuitive cloud-based
tool to design and collaborate on complex organic shapes from concept to final
product, anytime, anywhere.

According to Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes, they
are committed to developing tools that respond to evolutions in the product
design process from a technical perspective as well as a collaborative one.
Engineers using SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform will
be able to rely on powerful, accessible technologies that facilitate their work
and result in significant business advantages.

Traditional industrial design software face multiple constraints
including data incompatibility, extensive rework of designs, disconnect between
industrial and mechanical design teams, lack of collaboration during the design
process, and difficulty in evaluating multiple concepts, all of which can slow
down the product design process and reduce cost efficiency and time-to-market.

The SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design application eliminates these barriers
by offering a flexible, intuitive single modelling environment that improves
the overall industrial design process. Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform,
SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design 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. Safe,
secure, intelligent data storage on the cloud can be accessed anytime from
anywhere to share designs, collaborate on ideas, and save and evaluate multiple
concepts.

Designers using SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design can create complex shapes
in 3D and add mechanical data directly to a model without changing product
design software or environment. Concept sketching, integrated freeform and
parametric surface/solid modelling, direct editing, realistic rendering and
simplified design evolution tools are all features of this streamlined process.

Michael Thompson, Global Product Manager, Wacom Technology
Corporation comments that their partnership with SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design
will enable professional designers working on Wacom pen tablets or creative pen
displays to bring their ideas to market in a rapid and seamless way.

Dassault Systèmes will bring SOLIDWORKS
Industrial Design to life at SOLIDWORKS World 2015, taking place at the Phoenix
Convention Center until February 11, 2015. Visitors to the event can view
a demonstration on how SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design can simplify and accelerate
industrial design for more innovation, better collaboration and faster
time-to-market.
