In today's marketplaces, competition is fierce and consumer loyalty is nurtured by businesses that can create compelling experiences that go beyond simply purchasing or using a product. While this inspires businesses to innovate in all aspects of their operations in order to thrive, obsolete organizational structures, processes and tools separate the design and manufacturing aspects of product development and can lead to mistakes impacting collaboration, schedules and budgets.
With SOLIDWORKS 2018, teams can collaborate concurrently to more rapidly and cost-efficiently design a product or part, validate its function and manufacturability, manage its data and related processes, streamline and automate its manufacturing, and inspect it. Any changes in design or manufacturing are fast and easy to manage and automatically flow to all related models, programs, drawings and documentation, thanks to intellectual property embedded early on in the design process.
A key feature of SOLIDWORKS 2018 for this process is SOLIDWORKS CAM, a new application that provides rules-based machining with knowledge capture to allow for the automation of manufacturing programming. Designers and engineers can gain a greater understanding of how their designs are made, make more informed decisions, and quickly create prototype parts and manufacture in-house to control quality, cost and delivery. This application also enables teams to execute new "build to order" strategies with custom parts that are automatically designed and programmed in seconds rather than hours.
About Dassault Systemes SolidWorks. When it comes to 3D software, SOLIDWORKS is a mainstay in today's busy design world. SOLIDWORKS Corporation's software suite, acquired by France-based Dassault Systèmes back in 1997, sees widespread use across a number of applications and industries; its use in 3D printing is a given for many designers. The platform is best known for bringing 3D solid modeling capabilities to the desktop, having been first developed in 1993 with a vision to make 3D CAD technology more accessible. The first SOLIDWORKS software release hit the market in 1995, and each year since the platform has seen rising adoption. SOLIDWORKS now reports more than 3,246,750 users in 80 countries around the world, and more than two million students graduating annually with training in SOLIDWORKS. Annual updates to the software offerings have seen a response to a growing 3D industry, as designers grow their skills and hardware continues to advance, requiring more sophisticated capabilities.
