Dassault Systèmes Launches the First SOLIDWORKS Application on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform - SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
Systèmes (Paris:DSY) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the
3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital
Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, confirms today
the launch of SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual, on the 3DEXPERIENCE
In the Age of Experience, the world of design has changed: it is more
social, more conceptual, and collaboration is critical. SOLIDWORKS
Mechanical Conceptual on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is the essence of
that belief. Dassault Systèmes (News - Alert) is opening new horizons to the world of
design and providing the entire SOLIDWORKS community the power of all
Dassault Systèmes applications, content and services.
"As technologies and business models evolve, our users look to us to
provide them with the newest tools to help them collaborate more widely
and leverage 3D manufacturing and 3D printing in order to be more
competitive and innovative. With SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual, we've
done that. For the first time ever, the entire manufacturing industry
can benefit from a game-changing social platform that powers both the
global SOLIDWORKS community, as well as a new generation of process
experiences for the worldwide CATIA community," said Bertrand Sicot,
CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes. "Because of this, the cooperation
opportunities for SOLIDWORKS users are profound. This opens the door for
our customers across multiple industries and companies where Dassault
Systèmes and its other applications are significant players."
In addition to seeing the new design environment live, attendees at
SOLIDWORKS World (January 26-29) will hear from several customers who
have used the product in testing and production for six months.
Installed in production environments at numerous customer sites,
SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual advances conceptual design, enabling
users to quickly capture and develop their ideas digitally to create
winning designs that build market share.
"I used the Concept Archive to investigate and test different ways of
developing my idea at the same time. There are quite a few ways I can
develop my concept, but my fundamental constraints remain the same,"
said William MacLeod, Senior Engineer, Kennedy Hygiene. "With SOLIDWORKS
Mechanical Conceptual, I was able to rapidly produce three or more
concept configurations in the time it would take to produce one in
conventional 3D CAD solutions. I can quickly iterate on a design and
move the selected concept into SOLIDWORKS for final detailing."
Complementary to the current and continuing version of the
industry-leading 3D design software, SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual
combines best-in-class design technology from Dassault Systèmes with
SOLIDWORKS' familiar, easy-to-use interface. This helps to simplify and
streamline conceptual mechanical design, allowing users to develop,
confirm and choose the best concepts to engage customers and win
One of the key advantages of the new SOLIDWORKS offering based on
Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is the online collaboration via
its built-in cloud capabilities. The social aspect of concept design and
decision making is integrated into SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual's
SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual is a modeling environment focused on
the four key elements of conceptual design:
CONCEPTUAL: Users can rapidly create and evolve their concepts
the way they want without design barriers, and can automatically
capture their ideas to use anytime in the future.
INSTINCTIVE: Users can design the way they think with agile,
instinctive design tools in a structureless modeling environment with
SOCIAL: Familiar social collaboration tools in the interactive
3DEXPERIENCE environment allow users to harness the collective
intelligence of their company, customers and vendors.
CONNECTED: Collaboration is enhanced with automatically saved
design iterations to keep data safe, up-to-date and accessible
Pricing and Availability
SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual will be generally available in April
2014. More information is available at: http://www.solidworks.com/sw/products/3dexperience/solidworks-mechanical-conceptual-overview.htm
