  • Share design work more effectively with clients
  • Needed a way to streamline communication and collaborate more easily from the initial concept through the final prototyping stage



SOLIDWORKS offered a short learning curve, which appealed to Arato designers whose experience was using 2D design tools. The changeover took barely a week from the point of acquiring the new system to completing production-ready drawings of entire assemblies.
