PRESS RELEASE

Solidworks 2014

Solidworks 2014, a 3D software portfolio that comprises 3D CAD, simulation, product data management, technical communication and electrical design, has been launched by Dassault Systèmes. According to the company, the release delivers major productivity and usability gains and allows organisations to spend more time on knowledge-centric tasks that help push innovation to the forefront. Productivity boosters, workflow and mobility enhancements enable users to re-use data more dynamically, expediting the sharing of design data to help accelerate collaboration within product development.

The integrated Solidworks 2014 product portfolio includes new tools and enhancements to shorten the design process, enhance collaboration and increase productivity across four key areas: design tools, integrated workflows, performance increases and enhanced visualisation for improved collaboration. In addition, added mobility support for Android and iOS devices allows the more than 2.1 million Solidworks users to connect and experience new 3D designs anywhere and anytime.
