4. Why should SolidWorks World attendees visit your booth? What will be special or exciting?

In spite of advances in the product data management technology, the constant market pressures to decrease product development time and to utilize better the potential of product design engineers have led us to introduce EPDM add-ins that would increase productivity multi-fold.

  • Remember the instance where you released the assembly documents for the next stage of your development cycle when someone was still updating a part model?
  • How many times you would have been keen to know the status of your document on the overall work cycle?

Many such small setbacks can drag the team’s productivity leading to repetitive tasks, unorganized execution and un-synchronized development ultimately resulting in the delay of the product’s launch.
