Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks (DS SolidWorks), represented in Australia by Solidtec Solutions , have announced that OGIO International have bought the one millionth license of DS SolidWorks’ 3D CAD software.
OGIO International bought license number one million for aluminium design engineer Sean Peterson, who is working on OGIO International’s new line of motocross racing accessories. Peterson will use DS SolidWorks 3D CAD software to design products such as ramps, stands, and hardware for motocross bikes. OGIO is famous for designing creative and edgy athletic bags with features like the zipper-less ball pocket on its golf bags.
OGIO designers use SolidWorks software to model injection-moulded plastic pieces such as carrying handles, wheels, and golf bag frames. OGIO brought CAD in-house so their designers did not have to rely on a third party’s interpretation of a sketch to produce a 3D model. SolidWorks enable OGIO designers to experiment with new ideas without the constraints of working with an outside vendor.
SolidWorks software is powerful but easy to use, so the designers can concentrate on being creative instead of figuring out the software. Designers and engineers from OGIO have produced products with SolidWorks software, everything from medical instruments, to children’s toys, to windmills, to solar cells, to components of NASA’s Mars rover.
