The launch of SOLIDWORKS 2017 has been announced by Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE company, and in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions. From small start-ups to global organisations, more than 3.1 million users can create multi-sensory experiences through innovative product design, with access to easy 3D design and development applications anytime, anywhere and on any device.
Powered by Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, SOLIDWORKS 2017 helps innovators design, validate, collaborate, build and manage their product development processes with integrated applications. SOLIDWORKS 2017 features more core power and performance, as well as new capabilities to address paperless manufacturing through the support of Model Based Definition, and Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design.
Both new and experienced users can improve productivity with simulation to analyse, solve, visualise and verify functionality of designs, before any prototype is created. New tools unlock any 3D model for better collaboration with vendors and customers, and dynamic Product Data Management (PDM) from concept through to manufacturing allows for stronger support of multi-site and remote teams.
“We must fulfil a lot of medical device requirements, and SOLIDWORKS has been helpful for leveraging cutting-edge industrial design to get our work done faster and our myoelectric upper limb orthosis to market,” said Andrew Harlan, Principal Mechanical Engineer, Myomo.
Harlan added: “We exclusively use SOLIDWORKS for the full spectrum of our design work. The ability to collaborate with industrial designers, consultants and manufacturers across different time zones simplifies the whole process. The SOLIDWORKS models are so accurate and appealing that we can quickly design, iterate and improve a highly technical part.”
“SOLIDWORKS 2017 simplifies the design and development process with a better user experience, new capabilities for emerging technologies, and improved functionality for seamless collaboration with teams and networks,” said Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes.
Bassi commented: “Each year, our SOLIDWORKS community’s feedback drives our research and development to offer a flexible product portfolio for business, design and engineering needs. We are excited to put even more power and performance in their hands with SOLIDWORKS 2017.”
