SOLIDWORKS 2021 users can also expand their capabilities by connecting to the 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS portfolio to tackle more challenges.
The annual launch of the next edition of SOLIDWORKS – the Dassault Systemes Company known for 3D CAD design software, analysis software and product data management software – is a much anticipated event globally, usually held in the months of September-October. On October 14, Dassault Systemes launched SOLIDWORKS 2021 edition in India in a virtual event, the latest release enhancing the capabilities and workflows for design, documentation, data management and validation that enable users to get their work done faster. A major highlight is SOLIDWORKS 2021 users can now also expand their capabilities by connecting to the 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS portfolio to tackle more challenges, from design to manufacturing, and accelerate cloud-based collaborative innovation.
“SOLIDWORKS 2021 delivers the performance demanded so that you can get the work done faster. We are focussed on quality and robustness so that your tools are more reliable than ever And of course, many features that you’ll be excited to try. Every year you face new challenges and we discovered the old ways of working are not just good enough for efficient collaboration. We think there is a better way – connecting SOLIDWORKS Desktop to the Cloud. This is 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS. You take what you already know in lab, in SOLIDWORKS, and supercharge with all of Dassault Systemes’ best technologies on the3DEXPERIENCE platform – Connect. Collaborate and more,” said Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, Dassault Systemes, addressing the SOLIDWORKS community.
SOLIDWORKS 2021 includes performance enhancements and expanded functionalities such as the top 10 requested enhancements from the SOLIDWORKS community at the 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020 event in February. Performance enhancements address parts and assembly design, products download, drawings, graphics, and data management to make file operations and workflows faster. SOLIDWORKS 2021 expands functionalities with improved assembly simplification, more flexible part design, and more robust simulation, as well as with user experience and assembly modelling ‘delighters’ for SOLIDWORKS enthusiasts.
In addition, a special edition of SOLIDWORKS connected to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is now available in three packages, 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Standard, Professional and Premium, which mirror the desktop versions. SOLIDWORKS customers can use the same familiar SOLIDWORKS desktop applications they have relied on for years, plus the 3DEXPERIENCE platform cloud services that will make them more collaborative and mobile. This connected version of SOLIDWORKS comes with embedded data management, eliminating obsolete or lost files, and automatically updating software and data. All users work on the same version and are one click away from all the advanced applications of the 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS portfolio. The 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS offers include cloud-based industrial and mechanical design optimised for mobile devices and designed for automation and collaborative work on the go.
At the India launch of SOLIDWORKS 2021, Dassault Systemes announced that leading automotive component supplier of vehicle dashboard and interiors MigmaPacktron has deployed ENOVIAworks.
“New materials and components that are lightweight without compromising on tenacity and durability have evolved in the automotive and commercial vehicle industry worldwide. There is increased demand for aesthetically designed attractive, appealing and cost effective solutions for dashboards, interiors, doors and cabin comfort. To meet this demand we needed a collaborative solution between designing, engineering, manufacturing and even global teams,” said Nitin Raut, Director, MigmaPacktron. “ENOVIAworks will enable us to connect our most vital resources – people, software tools and data – in one unified, secure place to collaborate on designs more easily, keeping projects and people on track.”
“SOLIDWORKS 2021 enhances the capabilities and workflows for users every day for design, documentation, data management, validation, and more. Users can now also expand the capabilities by connecting to the 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS portfolio to tackle more challenges and accelerate innovation together,” said PM Ravikumar, India Management Director, SOLIDWORKS & 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS, Dassault Systemes. “ENOVIAworks will enable MigmaPacktron to collaborate in the value chain. SOLIDWORKS 2021 and the 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS portfolio will help us expand into new customer bases across Industrial Equipment, Life Sciences and Medical Devices and among automotive and aerospace suppliers across the country.”
