Innova Systems launch SolidWorks 2009 in style. Engineers from across the UK attended a workshop and presentation to find out about what is new in the latest SolidWorks package.

Designers and Engineers from across the UK converged at the Duxford Aviation Museum to experience the launch of SolidWorks 2009, the very latest version of SolidWorks, a 3D visualisation and engineering design software that is now used by over 750,000 designers and engineers worldwide. Presented by Innova Systems, the Cambridge based UK reseller, the day included presentations and workshops that introduced the many new features of SolidWorks.


SolidWorks technology is now used to design cars, mobile phones, cameras and even buildings. By being one of the first 3D design softwares to run on PC's, SolidWorks opened up 3D design to a much broader audience than previous solutions and is now taught in universities and colleges around the world.


"The real beauty of SolidWorks is that it's very intuitive," said Mark Bradford, Managing Director of Innova Systems. "The focus of SolidWorks has always been to empower the designer and to provide the tools they need to create great designs. SolidWorks 2009 has sought to enhance both the speed and quality of design and we are very excited by what has been achieved. We estimate that the changes and improvements make it twice as fast as the previous version."


At the event, it was explained that the developers of SolidWorks were sent out into industry to sit alongside designers so that they would understand how the software was being used and understand at first hand, what could be improved and where time could be saved in the design process. Presentations at the event also covered SolidWorks’ ability to generate and manage complex engineering data and its ability to manage designs undertaken by teams of engineers. SolidWorks Simulation was also demonstrated, a tool that enables engineers to undertake analysis of their design in a virtual environment, ensuring that the design will work in the real world.


"It's a technology that can transform a business," said Mark Bradford, "Not only does SolidWorks enable faster and more accurate product development, but SolidWorks is also a great communication tool that helps companies communicate their designs internally and to their clients and customers. SolidWorks has become a closely integrated suite of products that can cater for a single engineer or a globally distributed design team."


SolidWorks is the result of a large and impressive development team that works 24 hours a day. With offices around the world, when one team clocks off, another clocks on and picks up the development projects and technical support. This is how SolidWorks has won its considerable market share; it is known for its innovation and responsive technical support.


"It’s a very impressive product developed by a very impressive company," said Mark. "Even though it’s a large company with a lot of customers, we still have direct access to senior developers and they are always enthusiastic and energised about the product. Cambridge is one of their major development centres, so it very good for us to have this level of support on our doorstep."
