How the Consumer Products Industry Uses SOLIDWORKS
Benefit Your Business

Within the Consumer Products Industry short product lifecycles, globalisation, the reduction of time to market and the constant need to anticipate the changing demand of the customer whilst always maintaining quality are just a few of the Macro Critical Business Issues faced on a regular basis.

SOLIDWORKS' expansive range of integrated product development solutions help your business meet these challenges and improve and increase the efficiency of the product development process, allowing your business to truly benefit.

SOLIDWORKS can offer real solutions to the challenges faced by various members of the production team.

Challenges and Solutions for...

Managing Director - Enable access to models across the network regardless of CAD literacy levels
Challenge
CAD Solution
Share CAD models with groups who may not be CAD literate.
SOLIDWORKS allows models to be saved in various formats. Produce PDFs of product drawings, composer files and PhotoView360 renders whilst save out models using eDrawings allowing those who don't have SOLIDWORKS to interact with models in a 3D environment.
Head of Engineering - Maintain customer satisfaction, monitor operating costs and produce quality products
Challenge
CAD Solution
Bridging the gap between design and engineering
SOLIDWORKS offers over 30 translators to convert incoming CAD data or to export data to other CAD products (including Step, iges, Rhino, Abobe Illustrator, etc) to help facilitate cross CAD product communication.
Engineers required to create more aesthetically pleasing products
Advanced yet easy to use complex shapes and surfacing tools allow engineers to create and edit complex solid and surface geometry include stylish curve-continuous (C2) surfaces.
Production of reliable product with predictable behaviour
Subject your designs to the same conditions they'll experience in the real world to help identify and correct potential problems before you commit to manufacturing.
Electro-Mechanical Integration
With ECAD/MCAD integration in the form of CircuitWorks data can be easily shared between electrical CAD (ECAD) and mechanical (MCAD) designers from within the SOLIDWORKS software.
Reduce time wasted producing standard components
SOLIDWORKS offers a toolbox library of standard components, further to this access a huge online catalogue of 3D models with 3DContentCentral.com
Rapid, precise determination of which components need to be purchased and require sourcing
The SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM system allows your e-Bill of Materials to be connected to an MRP to allow for fast generation of which parts require sourcing.
Documentation
Design documentation can be quickly generated with SOLIDWORKS 2D Drawing creation. Produce technical drawings with company specific standards, drawing borders and templates as well as the ability to adhere to BSI, ANSI etc
Head of Marketing - Provide appropriate and exciting promotional materials
Challenge
CAD Solution
Obtain plausible funding prior to product manufacture
Make use of SOLIDWORKS' integrated 3D rendering capabilities with PhotoView 360, which allows you to produce photorealistic renders directly from your 3D CAD model within SOLIDWORKS.
Head of Manufacturing - Produce products both in house and outsourced in a cost effective manner
Challenge
CAD Solution
Source suppliers who also use the software
As the leading 3D CAD modelling system there are numerous suppliers also making use of SOLIDWORKS, online resource bank 3D Content Central allows you to connect with suppliers easily.
Cost effective yet highly precise manufacture
SOLIDWORKS allows the CAM manufacturing process to be seamlessly integrated with a range of available partner products which allow you to quickly and accurately manufacture your product.
Design Engineer - Ensure design / engineering out turn remains relative
Challenge
CAD Solution
Engineers required to create more aesthetically pleasing products
Advanced yet easy to use complex shapes and surfacing tools allow engineers to create and edit complex solid and surface geometry include stylish curve-continuous (C2) surfaces, making beautiful designs accessible to all and removing the need for specialists.
