Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that SOLIDWORKS World 2014 will take place from January 26-29, 2014 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California (USA). During SOLIDWORKS World, partners, industry leaders, and over 4,500 of the world’s most talented and innovative design and mechanical engineers will share their stories, explore new ideas, and become inspired to take their projects to the next level.
In addition to highlighting customers who have used SOLIDWORKS design applications to beat the odds, change people’s lives through their creations, or develop products the world didn’t even know it needed, SOLIDWORKS World 2014 will feature presentations from customers who have been using the new SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual in production environments since June of 2013. Dassault Systèmes will demonstrate the SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual social design environment that advances conceptual design. With this new application, all stakeholders can quickly capture and develop their ideas digitally and engage their communities to create winning concepts that build market share.
Complementary to the current and continuing version of the industry-leading 3D design software, SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual combines best-in-class design technology from Dassault Systèmes with SOLIDWORKS’ famous ease of use to simplify and streamline conceptual mechanical design, allowing users to develop, confirm, and choose the best concepts to engage customers and win business.
“I used the Concept Archive to investigate and test different ways of developing my idea at the same time. There are quite a few ways I can develop my concept, but my fundamental constraints remain the same,” said William MacLeod, Senior Engineer, Kennedy Hygiene. “With SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual, I was easily able to rapidly produce three or more concept configurations in the time it would take to produce one in conventional 3D CAD solutions. I can quickly iterate on a design and move the selected concept into SOLIDWORKS for final detailing.”;
“At SOLIDWORKS World we focus on showcasing amazing customers who epitomize the creativity and passion of the SOLIDWORKS community. This year we will also share a new application that will provide our users with the freedom to design the way they want, helping them quickly turn inspiration into reality,” said Bertrand Sicot, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes. “I’m looking forward to showing off SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual and sharing how it has already transformed the conceptual design process.”
Highlights of SOLIDWORKS World 2014 will include:
· Customer stories and products from industries ranging from manufacturing and medical instruments to consumer electronics and renewable energy;
· Sessions showcasing modeling essentials, design automation, productivity applications and other topics designed to help users work faster and be more efficient;
· More than 200 in-depth technical training sessions, many of them hands on, covering topics such as “Sheet Metal for the Casual User,” “The Art of the Swoopy Part,” and “Electrical 3D – Harnessing;” and
· The Partner Pavilion, featuring more than 100 hardware and software vendors who work with SOLIDWORKS applications to deliver new business benefits.
