Leading Australian design and engineering consultancy Design + Industry selected SolidWorks 3D CAD software for product design and development.
Design + Industry specialises in high-technology products, employing a specialist team of designers and engineers to provide the necessary expertise to design and develop globally competitive products.
The increasing sophistication in their concept styling necessitated the design team to have complete control over a product’s form. Describing these forms on a 2D drawing was a time-intensive process and relied on a toolmaker’s ability to interpret sections.
SolidWorks 3D CAD software was user-friendly, well supported locally and highly flexible, offering great value to the design team. The intuitive 3D design software supported freeform design.
A key advantage for the company came from SolidWorks’ ability to read and write files in a broad range of formats, allowing them to exchange files with 3D-ready toolmakers and contractors.
SolidWorks 3D CAD software also allowed them to email standalone 3D files to clients for review without the need for the latter to install 3D software.
