Auto components supplier MtM Automotive Components has selected SolidWorks 3D CAD software to develop a new Mitsubishi shift control assembly.
The Melbourne-based MtM Automotive Components is a tier-one, black-box supplier to the automotive industry. The company is responsible for the underlying mechanics of its products, which must be designed within a customer-prescribed physical space.
2D design tools used by MtM had their limitations and the engineers increasingly found it difficult to produce quality designs without fit and interference problems.
Having decided to implement a 3D CAD system, MtM chose SolidWorks 3D CAD software because of its ease of use, built-in data translation capabilities, enhanced design visualisation tools and integrated SolidWorks Simulation software.
Key results for MtM Automotive Components with SolidWorks CAD software:
- Improved the quality and integrity of its designs
- Acquired the ability to import a variety of CAD formats
- Enhanced design visualisation and communication
- Increased designer enthusiasm and job satisfaction
SolidWorks 3D CAD design software is also available in Australia and New Zealand from Intercad .
