WALTHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 1, 2011 — Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp.:
SolidWorks World by definition brings together users “United by Design.” Every day, from the moment we wake up, we’re surrounded by products that someone designed. An engineer or designer spent time thinking about how to make those products work, and how to turn their ideas into reality. Design is constantly improving our lives, making us safer, helping us live longer. And for the engineering community, it’s about loving their work, which is what will be celebrated at this year’s event.
If the 20th century was all about computer automation, allowing for improvements in design, analysis, and manufacturing of products, the 21st century is about collaboration. Today users from government, industry, and research -- fields that wouldn’t ordinarily have the opportunity to work together -- can now collaborate to create innovative designs that change the world.
This is evident at SolidWorks World 2012, the 14th annual gathering of customers, partners, resellers, and employees of DS SolidWorks, developer of software for sustainable design, simulation, data management, and technical communications.
Highlights of the event include:
- Networking with more than 4,500 passionate SolidWorks enthusiasts including engineering and design professionals, students, educators, partners, resellers, and DS SolidWorks employees from around the globe. Customer stories from industries ranging from manufacturing and medical instruments, to consumer electronics and renewable energy.
- Sessions showcasing how an open and transparent design process can help users approach and successfully overcome the same challenges in their work by leveraging insights from incredibly bright people for free, and in effect, conducting preliminary user-testing before true user tests.
- More than 200 in-depth technical training sessions, many of them hands on, covering topics such as “Evaluating Component Cost Reduction Options Using SolidWorks Simulation,” “Dumb Solids - Make Them Your Friend in SolidWorks,” and “No Red Pencil Required - Using the SolidWorks Design Checker.”
- The Partner Pavilion, featuring more than 100 technology products that work with SolidWorks software to deliver new business benefits.
- The Hot Rod Baby Buggy from “Let’s Go Design,” DS SolidWorks’ interactive Web series will be on display in the Product Showcase in the Partner Pavilion. The Hot Rod Baby Buggy was built start to finish with design input from the engineering community.
