"Our clients spread across so many industrial sector and have all gained
they're market dominance through inspirational vision and a passion for
design." Said Paul Ganz, Intercad's Managing Director, "Our range of
technological design and engineering solutions such as SolidWorks, turn
these visions into reality. SolidWorks really is the mechanical design tool
that is giving our local innovators their competitive edge"
Lee Liston, Design Manager at KWA, "Solid works complements our design
process (which has developed over twenty years in the business) by offering
an intuitive interface and speedy results. By using solidworks as an
integral part of the design process we are able to further reduce the time
to market and the efficiency of our service. By moving concepts from sketch
to 3D data early in the design process we build solid foundations for the
product development process. Service and reliability have never been an
issue with this package."
Ken Gransbury, Industrial designer with B&R Enclosures said, "The design
tables are an excellent method of making a range. First you enter a range
of models that you require, then just double click any feature parameter you
want to drive and SolidWorks lobs fair into the design table with the
default entry. It might be as simple as a height or width, an occurrence of
a feature or number of instances. This impressive feature offered by
SolidWorks and one that enabled B&R to design, develop and manufacture
Ausrack all within 9 months."
Craig Mounsey, Craign Mounsey Design: "Solidworks has quickly become a
significant tool in reducing the lead time to market. We specialise in the
development of cutting edge high technology products where change is common
and product development timeframes are compressed. Solidworks provides us
with a clear design path to achieving a finalised product in the timeframes
imposed upon us by the industry we work in. In essence the package works
with us not against us."
