A world-leading producer of sports practice equipment chose to implement SolidWorks Professional 3D design software to jumpstart new product development.

JUGS Sports works with SolidWorks Professional for enabling its design team to visualise and interrogate new design concepts for better product innovations.

JUGS Sports manufactures baseball-pitching machines, softball-pitching machines, batting cages and radar guns among others. The company has expanded into the development of ball-throwing systems for football, soccer, tennis, field hockey and cricket.  

To respond to increasing competition, the manufacturer needed a 3D design software tool that would allow it to efficiently expand its product line while introducing innovative concepts.  

By selecting SolidWorks Professional design software, JUGS Sports has benefited from ease of use, reduced development time, lesser design to prototype time, expanded product line and higher design innovation.  

Important gains for JUGS software include collaboration, ease of use, better product design, total cost of ownership, innovation, manufacturability, advanced modelling, photorealistic renderings, integration and design reuse capabilities.  

Key results:  

  • Reduced development time by 50% 
  • Cut time from design to prototype by half 
  • Expanded product line to capture youth market 
  • Increased product innovation    
Greg Anderson, Product Designer at JUGS Sports comments that the SolidWorks software has given them the freedom to quickly develop a design, simulate its performance, check for interferences, and create a prototype.  


SolidWorks 3D CAD design software is also available in Australia and New Zealand from Intercad .
