UK designers and engineers anticipate the release of SolidWorks 2011


Leading UK 3D design software company, Innova Systems, has announced that it will be launching SolidWorks 2011 at the upcoming TCT Show at the Ricoh Stadium on the 19th and 20th October and at a dedicated SolidWorks 2010 Launch seminar at Duxford, nr Cambridge on 29th October.

SolidWorks is immensely powerful 3D design software that is used by over 1,500,000 engineers worldwide to design all kind of products, and to model all kinds of three-dimensional creative ideas. Users of Solidworks include mechanical design engineers, architects, automotive engineers, furniture designers, interior designers, plus a broad range of technology companies.

"For many of our customers, big and small, SolidWorks is an important business tool," said Mark Bradford, Managing Director at Innova. "SolidWorks enables our customers to develop innovative, effective and reliable products; products that can strongly compete in the global marketplace. Furthermore, there are many powerful features within the SolidWorks product range that enable these companies to work faster and smarter, to enable them to outpace the competition and maximise their resources."

An important component of the latest version of SolidWorks is a 'Sustainability' package. This is a software tool that enables engineers to evaluate the environmental impact of their design choices. Whether it is the material, the cost of transportation or the energy required to process the material, SolidWorks Sustainability is able to calculate the energy footprint of a design and even suggest alternative solutions.

"To be able to address environmental issues at the earliest stages of design is an important new feature of SolidWorks," said Mark Bradford. "Increasingly engineers do need to think in terms of the environmental impact of the choices that they make. This software uses an extensive database, ensuring that the relevant environmental data is instantly available."

The TCT Show (Time Compression Technologies) is an annual exhibition that brings together major players from the sectors of Inspection, Scanning and Digitizing, CAD/CAM/CAE Software and Materials; all of who will showcase their latest offerings, presenting the perfect opportunity for the prospective visitor to appraise all of the latest technologies on the market.

Innova’s Customer Day has also become an established annual event, whereby the team at Innova host a special day where engineers can gain an insight into the new version of SolidWorks, as well as trick and tips from the experts.
