SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer

Design and collaborate on the cloud

ACCELERATE YOUR INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

SOLIDWORKS® Industrial Designer removes the constraints of traditional industrial design software to give you a flexible, intuitive, powerful modeling environment that will allow you to express your creativity without compromise. Quickly capture, develop, and communicate your design ideas directly in the digital model.

What is SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer?

SOLIDWORKS® Industrial Designer (SWID) is a cloud based concept design tool that allows you to quickly generate multiple industrial design concepts in response to a design brief. It offers unique tools for the rapid creation, manipulation, and modification of designs using native and imported geometry.

The perfect concept tool

For industrial design concepts and the modeling of consumer products, SWID offers a perfect 3D concept tool.

  • Quickly capture your ideas in a natural, instinctive way using the screen as a virtual sketchpad
  • Expand your ideas in 3D with freeform sculpting techniques – simply push and pull geometry onscreen like virtual clay until you achieve the desired result
  • Easily snapshot multiple design ideas in Concept Archives and then share them throughout your design community to gauge customers’ reactions

SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer Capabilities

Simplify and Amplify your industrial design process

 

SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design Tablet

Capture your ideas

SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer breaks down traditional design process barriers by offering your business:

  • Quickly capture your ideas in a natural, instinctive way using the screen as a virtual sketchpad.
  • Concept sketching provides easy-to-use tools for creating sketch-based concepts and ideas.
  • Simplified design evolution quickly moves your concept from sketches to complex 3D geometry helping accelerate time-to-market.
3D Modeling

Expand your ideas in 3D

Expand your ideas in 3D with freeform sculpting techniques – simply push and pull geometry on screen like virtual clay until you achieve the desired result:

  • Integrated freeform and parametric surface/solid modeling merges the benefits of freeform sub-division, parametric solid, and surface modeling with direct editing.
  • Direct editing easily transforms both native and imported solid geometry, reducing remodeling time and allowing you to focus on innovation.
  • Realistic rendering tools enable you to produce stunning images to help convey exactly how the finished product might look.
Cloud Design Collaboration

Collaborate on the Cloud

Easily snapshot multiple design ideas in Concept Archives and then share them throughout your design community to gauge customers’ reactions

  • Access the collective intelligence of the whole team to drive towards the best design solution.
  • Collaborate internally and externally with your design team, suppliers, and customers in an open innovation process.
  • Engage stakeholders at any point in the design process by posting concepts to their private communities.
  • Collect stakeholder concept reviews and feedback using simple and familiar web tools.

Get Informed, Get Connected, Get Involved

Use social innovation and collaboration for better design

SWID Discussion

Working on the cloud provides significant value during the product development process without needing to leverage enterprise data management tools. With transparent data management, embedded social innovation, and extensive collaboration capabilities, you now have the ability to share, communicate, and control your projects. SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer gives you an easy-to-use, cloud-based project collaboration infrastructure that will help YOU:

ORGANIZE  your Project

With access control, encrypted communication protocols, and industry-leading data backup and recovery procedures, your data files are always protected. An embedded and transparent data management system helps ensure that your work is never lost and never overwritten—your data files remain safe.

COLLABORATE on your Project

Integrated collaboration tools enable innovation at multiple levels. Collaborative co-design allows multiple engineers to work on the same product at the same time. Unlimited communities let you engage with other users, management, customers, suppliers, or any other stakeholders early in the product development process.

CONNECT with your Team

Every user can always be connected in the cloud to a single, common database, with access to the latest version of data. Every user (depending on their security and access rights) can access data anywhere, anytime, from any device to complete essential tasks, such as managing or reviewing models or participating in community discussions. Integrated collaboration tools enable innovation at multiple levels.

Collaborative co-design allows multiple engineers to work on the same product at the same time. Unlimited communities let you engage with other users, management, customers, suppliers, or any other stakeholders early in the product development process.

Be INFORMED

Unlimited number of shareable dashboards, combined with a library of off-the-shelf widgets, gives you easy access to information about product development, the latest comments from the community, and the people involved.

Store and manage data across collaborative spaces, and share information in communities. You can find data faster by using tags, custom search, and other features.

Testimonials

“Using SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer software, Studio Gecchelin can leverage a robust sketching and freeform, sub-D modeling application to create innovative industrial designs while simultaneously collaborating more effectively with engineers to refine industrial design concepts for production.”
