NEW DELHI: Leading developer of 3D mechanical design solutions Solidworks on Tuesday unveiled a new version of its market-leading 3D software featuring more than 250 customer-requested enhancements.

SolidWorks 2004 has a performance that is 15 times faster than competing midrange software, according to a press release. It is available in 12 languages worldwide in three configurations.

It has a powerful drawing automation enhancement that lets designers create production-level drawings from large assemblies faster than ever. New lightweight drawings let users create assembly drawings without loading every component into memory. By simply dragging and dropping an assembly into a drawing, a user can generate 2D views of a 10,000-piece assembly in about 10 seconds.

SolidWorks 2004 also enables design engineers to generate a single bill of materials for multiple projects with numerous parts, quantities, and configurations, a key process in accelerating a design to manufacturing. Other important new drawing automation elements include auto ballooning, hole tables, and revision tracking tables.

Timesaving, and productivity-enhancing capabilities like these result in products that look, work, and sell better. The software annotates drawings 10 times faster than competing 2D offerings, the release stated.

A subsidiary of France’s Dassault Systems, SolidWorks is one of the leading names in product lifecycle management software.
