SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design: Simplify industrial design and expand innovation for your business advantage

Today at SOLIDWORKS World 2015, Gian-Paolo Bassi (SOLIDWORKS CEO) and SOLIDWORKS customer Parrot gave a detailed first look of SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design (SWID) to the watching world. Aimed at simplifying the process of conceptual industrial design to enable you to make it your business advantage, SWID is more than just a CAD tool. It delivers a truly collaborative design environment that enables design teams, customers, and suppliers to communicate, work together (interact), and develop products whenever they want and where ever they are located.

Simplify and Amplify your Industrial Design Process

The task of an industrial designer is to create shapes and forms that will resonate and create an emotional response from the user of their products, promoting product satisfaction, brand identity and brand loyalty. Designers need to quickly capture new ideas and concepts, involve peers and project stakeholders and collect design feedback before iterating select designs to develop best in class product solutions.

SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design provides a new benchmark for industrial design products. Combining a virtual sketchpad, industry standard parametric solid and surface modelling, robust freeform (sub-divisional) modelling, rendering anda connected Social Innovation platform, all within the SOLIDWORKS Single Modelling Environment makes SWID the best choice for industrial designers.

SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design brings connected community collaboration to your industrial design process. Gathering inputs from geographically dispersed stakeholders near or far can be challenging, but without this feedback and collaboration you may settle for an incomplete solution. How can you connect valuable product knowledge, use cases and design ideas to design the best possible product? How can all stakeholders communicate seamlessly wherever they are and whenever they want?

  • Access the collective intelligence of the whole team to drive towards the best design solution
  • Collaborate internally and externally with your design team, suppliers, and customers in an open innovation process
  • Engage stakeholders at any point in the design process by posting concepts to their private communities
  • Collect stakeholder concept reviews and feedback using simple and familiar web tools
