Solidworks 2017 release boosts
In an increasingly complex business world across industries, characterized by disruption from unexpected sources and merging of the physical and virtual worlds, innovation rules. And the new 2017 release of Solidworks promises to further unlock this ability to innovate for large and small enterprises in manufacturing, as well as for enterprising individuals who want to bring their ideas to life and scale in the market.
“Solidworks 2017 (3D CAD software) simplifies the design and development process with a better user experience, new capabilities for emerging technologies, and improved functionality for seamless collaboration with teams and networks,” said Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, Solidworks at Dassault Systèmes, in a company statement. His colleague Sanchit Jain, VP of Strategy & Business Development was in Bengaluru to share how the new release can power India’s “Make in India” agenda.
Powered by Dassault Systèmes ’ 3D Experience platform, Solidworks 2017 helps innovators design, validate, collaborate, build and manage their product development processes with integrated applications. The 2017 release features more core power and performance, as well as new capabilities to address paperless manufacturing through the support of Model Based Definition, and printed circuit board (PCB) design. Both new and experienced users can improve productivity with simulation to analyze, solve, visualize and verify functionality of designs, before any prototype is created. New tools unlock any 3D model for better collaboration with vendors and customers, and dynamic product data management (PDM) from concept through to manufacturing allows for stronger support of multi-site and remote teams.
Set for Uberization of Manufacturing
While “Uberization of Manufacturing” as a trend is yet to pickup in India, it indeed is a huge area of opportunity and some traction on this is already visible as companies begin to embrace virtual reality and the market is beginning to see smart, connected products in various pockets. Besides, 3D printing is becoming more affordable as compared to what it was five years ago and range of materials you can print continues to improve... All this is helping push the cost of failure down, allowing room for more experimentation, thus building innovation capability at a lower cost.
