Dassault Systèmes recently introduced SOLIDWORKS 2020 in India. SOLIDWORKS 2020 features enhancements, new capabilities and workflows that enable more than six million SOLIDWORKS users to accelerate and improve product development, from conceptual design to manufactured products, and create value for their organisations.
By seamlessly connecting to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the new solution also addresses the emerging trends and business needs in the global marketplace that require competitive organisations to seek new levels of collaboration and agility to more quickly and cost-effectively deliver new categories of experiences to the customers. Also, the users can benefit from an array of choices and opportunities to improve system performance in their daily operations, streamline workflows and extend their design to manufacturing ecosystem from the desktop to the cloud with seamless connection to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
Among the hundreds of new enhancements in SOLIDWORKS 2020 are:
New detailing mode and graphics acceleration for drawings: The new detailing mode lets users open their drawing in a matter of seconds while maintaining the ability to add and edit annotations within the drawing
Make part flexible: This is a new capability that allows users to display the same part in different conditions in the same assembly
Improvements to SOLIDWORKS PDM, the SOLIDWORKS Electrical connector and a new SOLIDWORKS PCB connector allow for complete electronics design and data management – including the secure storage, indexing and versioning of all user data - while enabling tighter collaboration between ECAD and MCAD teams
With SOLIDWORKS 2020, and the 3DEXPERIENCE.WORKS portfolio of solutions, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a growing set of cloud-based solutions that work together to help manage every aspect of developing concepts, designing products, and manufacturing and delivering them. Solutions like 3D Sculptor, which includes the xShape (sub division modelling) application, 3D creator featuring the xDesign (parametric modelling) application, 3D component designer (data management), project planner, and structural professional engineer (advanced simulation), enable users to reduce friction in their design to manufacturing process.
Discussing the benefits of the new solution, Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes, “We’ve built a bridge to our platform-based portfolio, empowering our users to take advantage of 3DEXPERIENCE.WORKS offerings. This gives organisations the environment and the applications to truly embrace the Industry Renaissance and its spirit of discovery for new ways of inventing, innovating, collaborating and producing.”
