Design engineers gather to see the latest release of SolidWorks 2011


Innova Systems are celebrating the successful launch of SolidWorks 2011, the latest version of the 3D design software package that is used by over one and a half million engineers around the world.

Over 150 design engineers attended the Customer Day held at Duxford near Cambridge. A team of engineers from Innova Systems, the region's SolidWorks Primary Reseller, introduced the audience to a number of powerful new features that will enhance their design and modeling capabilities and accelerate product development.

"This was one of the best Customer Days that we have ever done," said Mark Bradford, Managing Director of Innova Systems.

"SolidWorks is an immensely powerful design and engineering tool and engineers are quite rightly excited to see what new features exist in the latest version. There was a real buzz about the event, with a lot of excitement and respect for what this technology can deliver in terms of design capability and overall business performance."

Major improvements in SolidWorks 2011 are enhancements that speed the process of creating 2D dimensional drawings, therefore considerably reducing design time. In addition, major improvements in the way designers communicate with manufacturing can be designed, modelled and communicated to production.

These new features include a much greater range of design to manufacture toolsets; enabling engineers to more quickly and accurately model, design and manufacture their products. "Every year, the developers of SolidWorks react to the needs of designer and engineers to deliver a broad package of new features and enhancements." said Mark Bradford. "This year is no different.

Even the very impressive SolidWorks Simulation package has been improved so that engineers can far more quickly test their designs in a virtual environment before committing to production." In the afternoon, Innova engineers ran a series of technology workshops offering detailed guidance on specific elements of SolidWorks, such its sheetmetal design capabilities, its capability for assisting engineers achieve 'sustainable' designs and in the use of its simulation package.

"As all of our customers know, Innova Systems enjoy a unique relationships in supporting the drive to develop new products. Our Annual customer launch day is a great way for us all to get together and have a look at how SolidWorks Software has moved forward. It is right and proper that we should keep our customers informed of the very latest developments in the software together with hints and tips to speed up productivity and continuing our very succesful partnerships" said Mark Bradford.
