CONCORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 10, 2001-- SolidWorks Corporation today announced that Dresser Inc., a global manufacturer and marketer of highly engineered equipment used primarily in the energy industry, will extend its use of SolidWorks three dimensional computer-aided design (3D CAD) software to hundreds of engineers in its equipment design groups. Dresser currently owns more than 60 licenses of SolidWorks®software, but is in the process of converting to a network license, which will enable hundreds of Dresser engineers around the globe to use SolidWorks for all their design project needs.
Dresser, Inc. chose SolidWorks for its ease of use, affordability, and performance. SolidWorks' intuitive, Windows-based products help shorten Dresser's design time, reduce production errors, and speed products to market in the competitive energy industry. SolidWorks' communication products - 3D Instant Website, 3D Meeting, and eDrawings - enable Dresser engineers all over the world to share and review 3D designs via Web sites, e-mail, and real-time online meetings.
"SolidWorks' CAD software is one of the easiest packages to learn," said Brian White, Dresser's vice president of technology. "Between that and its 3D collaboration tools, SolidWorks shortens our design time and minimizes production errors, enabling us to get products to market faster. We look forward to working with SolidWorks to help us achieve better synergies in our globally-dispersed engineering groups."
