DezignWorks Brings Intelligent Reverse Engineering Capabilities To SolidWorks 2007
Integrated software allows users to perform feature based reverse engineering functions with new added functionality to capture data directly inside the SolidWorks environment to SolidWorks Scan to 3D.
Mooresville, NC Dec 11, 2006 — Creative Dezign Concepts Inc today announced that DezignWorks V8.0, a feature based reverse engineering software product, supports SolidWorks® 2007 3D mechanical design software. Engineers and designers use DezignWorks and SolidWorks to capture data from existing parts directly within the SolidWorks environment maintaining the associativity so they can design better products faster and more accurately, speeding time to market.
Creative Dezign Concepts Inc has just introduced another
Industry first to DezignWorks V8.0.
DezignWorks has the ability to capture data directly from a digitizer
device to SolidWorks Scan to 3D. With DezignWorks patent pending data
collection method all the movement of the device is stored and can be reused
again and again with out the need to re-digitize the model. During the
digitizing procedure the data can be exported and used to compare the
information to an existing model or imported back into SolidWorks to create a
mesh with SolidWorks Scan to 3D. Additional new capabilities have been added
for capturing 2D / 3D points and saving the data to a file structure ( .csv )
and reading the data back into SolidWorks to compare multiple model data such
as chassis suspension points. For a complete list take the
A SolidWorks Certified Gold Product, DezignWorks enables users to perform reverse engineering functions directly inside the SolidWorks interface and create feature based models utilizing digitizer devices such as Faro, Romer and MicroScribe. DezignWorks in conjunction with SolidWorks 2007 expands on the software’s legacy of ease of use, design power, and affordability by also providing users with comprehensive drawing tools and new productivity features that will speed the adoption of 3D design around the world. DezignWorks gives engineers the functionality to capture data from their existing part and create an intelligent feature based model, allowing the engineer to make changes rapidly while preserving the associativity to the part. DezignWorks can be used in a part or an assembly.
“Engineers shouldn’t have to move between 2-3 different applications to finish a product design,” said Brian Houle, Partner Program manager for SolidWorks. “Integrating DezignWorks with SolidWorks means engineers can begin reverse engineering their existing parts directly within the SolidWorks environment. That saves time and helps manufacturers meet tight production deadlines. SolidWorks gives engineers the tools they need to work more efficiently. That is why SolidWorks leads the market for mainstream 3D mechanical design software.”
“SolidWorks is the standard for 3D mechanical design software,” said Houle. “Combining it with DezignWorks gives engineers the tools they need to do their jobs faster and better by performing reverse engineering functions inside SolidWorks, creating intelligent data that conforms to SolidWorks and allows engineers to make changes to the data. Complex shapes can be captured quickly and accurately. DezignWorks is the only product of its kind that has the ability to randomly move the digitizer across the surface of the part and store the movement of the digitizer device for immediate use or at a later determined time. New or existing data can be added and simply reloaded into the database, automatically generating new data for Scan to 3D. Because of its depth of integration to the SolidWorks interface engineers are productive in a few hours.
The SolidWorks Partner Program features products and services that complement SolidWorks products. Certified Gold Products are fully integrated with SolidWorks and provide users with instant access to the partner application within the SolidWorks window. Solution Partner products offer a variety of integration methods with SolidWorks software, including the SolidWorks application programming interface (API) and established industry standard file formats. SolidWorks has more partners in the mid-range CAD market than any competing technologies, with more than 600 companies worldwide participating in the SolidWorks Partner Program.
A recent study estimated that 80% of new designs came from existing designs, usually an existing part. Utilizing DezignWorks a feature based product instead of a point cloud product gives the engineer the ability to capture the exact shape, even complex surfaces, directly inside the SolidWorks interface and then make changes rapidly to meet the needs of the new products and improve the design for the ever changing market needs. DezignWorks offers best- fit capabilities for lines, arcs, circles and splines. DezignWorks offers several utilities for curve editing such as maintaining minimum distance while capturing complex curves as well as spline uniformity tool.
