TROY, Mich. – Feb. 4, 2009
– SolidWorks World attendees seeking to learn more about innovative tools designed to work collaboratively with CAD/CAM systems and accelerate the product development cycle are invited to visit solidThinking, Inc. (www.solidthinking.com
) at booth 1012 on the SolidWorks expo floor Feb. 8-11 in Orlando, Fla.
A SolidWorks Solutions Partner and developer of the industrial design industry’s most user-centric software, solidThinking’s version 7.6, which is available on both PC and Mac, will be presented live by the solidThinking team.
Current SolidWorks and other CAD/CAM system users will find that solidThinking is a particularly useful tool for conceptual design due to its advanced NURBS-based modeling capabilities and a unique construction tree, which encourages users to change their minds anytime during the design process without having to recreate innovations from scratch. Other advanced features include an updated rendering engine, a streamlined user interface, rich photorealistic content functionality and other enhancements that ease and expand design flexibility.
“solidThinking’s extensive capabilities, intuitive nature and compatibility with CAD/CAM software such as SolidWorks make it an ideal design/styling program for driving creativity and advancing the speed of industrial design from conception through production,” said Robert Little, president of solidThinking. “We are aiming to provide new and experienced users alike smooth accessibility and overall ease-of-use in an effort to help support productivity between industrial design and engineering software programs. We look forward to and encourage SolidWorks attendees to experience solidThinking at the show.”
solidThinking can exchange data with any CAD/CAM system, helping designers and engineers work together more efficiently. Due to this improved collaboration, solidThinking 7.6 accelerates the product development cycle. Click on www.solidthinking.com/collaboration
