Double Robotics Doubles Down on Telepresence with SOLIDWORKS PCB

I work on the West Coast, but many of my interactions are with colleagues who are all over the country. Those who work remotely understand that attending meetings over video conferencing is not nearly as productive or fun as actually being there in person.  I was very interested in learning more about Telepresence for remote meetings and was excited to visit one of our SOLIDWORKS customers – Double Robotics – and meet one of its founders Mark DeVidts.

For years, Double Robotics has been designing cutting-edge Telepresence products. However, its system-level design requirements were beyond what our mechanical CAD systems could do. Today, that fact is no longer true.

Tech companies constantly face and have to overcome numerous design obstacles.  A critical one is the separation between the electronics and mechanical teams, which is a very a common challenge.  Most product design workflows segment electronics and mechanical design software into separate silos making ECAD-MCAD collaboration challenging.

Double Robotics was able to overcome this challenge.  With the implementation of SOLIDWORKS PCB the company now has a seamless, intelligent collaborative environment that eliminates the separation of electronics and mechanical teams and significantly improves its ECAD-MCAD workflow.

Mechanical designers are able to communicate design intent and critical design changes to the electronics teams while staying synchronized at all times throughout the design process.  Adopting the SOLIDWORKS ecosystem for both electronics and mechanical departments has had a positive impact on its schedule and budget, enabling Double Robotics to stay ahead of the competition and meet its customer’s needs.

As I learned from my visit to Double Robotics, the design team focuses on augmenting human abilities beyond the constraints of time and space, and the SOLIDWORKS eco-system is helping them to amplify what they are doing as engineers.
