From Mike Baljak, SolidWorks CAD administrator, ATS Automation Tooling Systems ( www.atsautomation.com):
“With SolidWorks 2009, I’ve noticed a huge improvement in assembly and drawing performance, especially when working with large assemblies. SolidWorks 2009 will enable us to quickly open large layouts, make changes to the design, and update the associated drawing with ease, which will make our design process more efficient. This will ultimately help ATS get our SolidWorks-generated designs to manufacturing faster, shorten the design and build cycle, and enable our customers to get their products to market quicker than their competition.”
From John MacKrell, senior analyst at CIMdata:
“Given that the point of software solutions is to automate tasks and the point of automation is to make common tasks happen faster, then a significant increase in performance will deeply benefit every designer and engineer. SpeedPak technology increases performance while decreasing resource consumption, providing a double benefit for designers, especially those who work with large assemblies.”
From Austin O’Malley, CTO of Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp.:
“Designers and engineers want a great user experience, allowing them to focus on the product they are developing, not the software, and perform their work faster without compromise. We listened hard to our customers, and the early SolidWorks 2009 feedback shows that we’ve successfully advanced this objective.”
