Eased Design and Optimization via SolidWorks Add-On

October 29, 2018

3D Systems has introduced 3DXpert for SolidWorks CAD software, which combines 3D Systems’ 3DXpert with Dassault Systèmes’ SolidWorks. The new introduction offers users these capabilities:

  • Maintain design integrity by working with native CAD solids without converting them into STL, or toggling between several software programs to accomplish all tasks.
  • Optimize structures with rapid creation of lattice-based structures for light-weighting and applying surface textures.
  • Ensure quality printed parts by using real-time analysis for best-fit positioning and orientation of the part. Use of automated analysis and setting of support structures helps designers ensure surface quality and prevents part distortion.
  • Accelerate preparation time by employing automatic features such as tray setup, and estimation of material usage and build time.

“We are excited to partner with Dassault Systèmes and help customers experience the reality of 3D printing through 3DXpert for SolidWorks,” says Vyomesh Joshi, president and chief executive officer, 3D Systems. “This collaboration enables SolidWorks users to create more shapes, more ways, and accelerate product development cycles while lowering costs. We are offering designers a true competitive advantage while redefining the design and manufacturing process.”

“Available with all Solidworks 3D CAD subscriptions, 3DXpert for SolidWorks allows designers to optimize their design for additive manufacturing, check for manufacturability without wasting time and material, and attain a competitive advantage in the market,” says Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, SolidWorks, Dassault Systèmes.
