BARCELONA, Spain — Dassault SystèmesSolidWorks Corp. unveiled SolidWorks® 2009 Premium, the newest version of the most widely adopted 3D CAD software with a documented speed increase of up to 65 percent over SolidWorks 2008. No 3D CAD software is faster or easier to use in helping users transform their innovative ideas into intelligent 3D models that are ready for manufacturing.
SolidWorks 2009 enhances what was already among the highest-performing products in the 3D CAD market. The new software reflects an intensive R&D effort focused directly on performance, which company research reveals is designers’ and engineers’ most valued CAD software trait.
The groundbreaking speed increase is calculated on documented productivity gains measured in the creation and modification of large assemblies and drawings using workflows adapted from real-world customer environments and data. Customer workflows were studied and tested to ensure that the overall design process was being improved, not just specific functions and tasks. More significantly, these performance gains were attained without new features and functions, meaning that users do not have to learn new techniques, settings, or functionality to take advantage of the power of SolidWorks 2009.
