VELIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France — April 3, 2014 — Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual, the first SOLIDWORKS application on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, is now available. Already installed in production environments at numerous customer sites, this application delivers significant collaborative benefits through its use of Dassault Systèmes’ industry-leading cloud-based capabilities. It can be purchased through SOLIDWORKS’ extensive networks of reseller partners.
Unveiled at SOLIDWORKS World in January, SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform embraces the new realities of today’s world of design in the age of experience: it is more social and conceptual and delivers on the promise of ease-of-collaboration among key contributors.
“Now that the majority of the companies we partner with have embraced cloud technologies, GoEngineer has seen a dramatic increase in requests from our customer’s Engineering, Design, and Manufacturing departments for help in leveraging the cloud in their organizations. We are excited to offer them SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual as a solution that effectively combines the benefits of cloud, integrates the amazing power of social technologies, and addresses the need for some design teams to have preliminary layouts before finalizing their CAD work.” said Brad Hansen, CEO of GoEngineer.
Complementary to the existing and regularly updated version of SOLIDWORKS, SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual allows customers to harness the collective intelligence of the entire design team, customers and the supply chain to capture ideas, leverage existing designs, collaborate and quickly collect feedback. Customers have the ability to purchase what best supports their specific conceptual design process:
“SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual allows us to be competitive in a global marketplace by collaborating with customers in real time from one interface,” said Mike Buchli, engineering manager, Karl W. Schmidt & Associates. “We can work through ideas concurrently while getting instant feedback from the customer and other team members through the community pages. This workflow has allowed us to transform the way we do business to get to the final design quicker and shorten lead times for our customers.”
“This is a big moment for SOLIDWORKS as we make available a key application for design that harnesses the power and cloud capabilities of Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Platform as well as continues SOLIDWORKS’ commitment to ease-of-use,” said Bertrand Sicot, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes. “We have customers who have used this product and have seen tremendous benefits already, and through our burgeoning channel program, we are excited to extend these capabilities to a much broader audience.”
