The best way to order prototypes just got easier for SolidWorks users
Southborough, MA -- November 13, 2002 -- Got SolidWorks? Need a prototype? With the Xpress3D add-in, you get instant price quotes for your prototype right inside the SolidWorks Feature Manager. Click on the Xpress3D tab, and the price is shown in seconds. The price even updates in real-time as you make dynamic changes to the model.
SolidWorks users no longer have to guess at the correct output tolerances, output a STL file, email or ftp the file, and then talk to someone on the phone just to get a price. Now the price is only a click away - it's easy, fast, and secure.
One very important topic to mention is SECURITY. At no time does your SolidWorks model ever leave your machine. During quoting, the only information transmitted is XYZ overall size, volume, and surface area. When you are ready to order, a compressed geometry-only representation is prepared. This file is then uploaded only after you explicitly provide permission to do so. And all communication with the Xpress3D server is over a secure 128-bit SSL connection.
Why are we telling you all this? We know how important it is for you to protect your proprietary designs. And so we at Xpress3D have worked very hard to provide you with the absolute safest way to order prototypes.
Our mission is to help you and every other engineer benefit from the clarity and confidence that only a prototype model in your hand can bring. Please try the add-in, and see how easy and accessible rapid prototyping can really be.
