Dassault Systèmes—the world’s leading 3DEXPERIENCE company in the field of 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions—announced the launch of SOLIDWORKS 2017 on 21 September 2016.
Powered by the company’s 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the software helps innovators design, validate, collaborate, build and manage their product development processes with integrated applications. More than 3.1 million users from small startups to global organisations can create multisensory experiences through innovative product design, with access to easy 3D design and development applications anytime, anywhere and on any device.
SOLIDWORKS 2017 introduced new features with enhanced core power and performance, as well as new capabilities to address paperless manufacturing through the support of model-based definition (MBD) and printed circuit board (PCB) design. Both new and experienced users can improve productivity with simulation to analyse, solve, visualise and verify functionality of designs before creating any prototypes. Dynamic product data management (PDM) improves the ways to manage and collaborate on design by controlling design data and ensuring access to the right version, which promotes better collaboration between vendors and customers, as well as supports team cooperation.
