Dassault Systèmes Introduces SolidWorks Plastics Software

Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE COMPANY, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today unveiled SolidWorks ® Plastics software, easy-to-use software tools that enable users to predict and avoid manufacturing defects during the earliest stages of plastics part and injection mold design.

The new products run fully embedded inside of SolidWorks, providing part designers and mold makers with familiar and intuitive workflows so they can quickly optimize their part and mold designs for manufacturability. The ability to make design changes early helps ensure that the mold works right the first time, reducing or eliminating the need for rework and improving part quality. In addition, SolidWorks Plastics provides users with valuable knowledge so they can determine whether changes to the part geometry, mold design, material selection or processing conditions will have a positive impact on the ability to easily manufacture their products.

The SolidWorks Plastics products are based on technology from SIMPOE SAS (SIMPOE), one of the leading providers of plastics injection molding simulation software. As a SolidWorks Gold Partner, SIMPOE currently provides fully integrated, fully interoperable, “single window” functionality for SolidWorks. The new solutions products build on the previous relationship and will be offered under the SolidWorks brand.

“For a lot of industries, such as Consumer package goods, using plastic molds provides added value in quality, time and cost savings. We believe a significant percentage of our installed user base is involved in plastic part or injection mold design and will benefit from the robust features in SolidWorks Plastics,” said Monica Menghini, executive vice president, marketing, Industry & Corp Communication Dassault Systèmes. “The addition of SolidWorks Plastics into our product portfolio allows us to expand into new areas while following the traditional SolidWorks focus on ease-of-use and features that provide real benefits to customers. The new offering provides designers fast, accurate and easy-to-use tools that make plastics simulation-driven design a reality.”
