New Delhi: SolidWorks Corporation (, a leading developer of 3D mechanical design solutions, today unveiled a new version of its market-leading 3D software featuring more than 250 customer-requested enhancements, including performance that is 15 times faster than competing midrange software.

By exponentially accelerating large assembly processing and automating hundreds of tedious tasks, SolidWorks 2004 unleashes design and engineering creativity to make better, more attractive, more marketable products in a fraction of the time competing software takes. SolidWorks 2004 is available in 12 languages worldwide in three configurations.

It has a powerful drawing automation enhancement that let 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, productivity-enhancing capabilities like these result in products that look, work, and sell better. No other software can match SolidWorks'' performance, which annotates drawings 10 times faster than competing 2D offerings - yet another compelling reason for 2D software users to migrate to 3D software.

Says SolidWorks Corporation director (Asia-Pacific operations) Ved Narayan: "The power of SolidWorks software has significantly added to the bottomline of the companies and institutions adopting this software. With the launch of SolidWorks 2004, we have made an excellent product even better. Indian companies will experience significant benefits from this new software. Those companies looking for the best-of-the-breed 3D design software should investigate SolidWorks, and experience first-hand the benefits of this feature-rich and innovative software."

SolidWorks Corporation, a Dassault Systèmes SA company, develops and markets software for mechanical design, analysis, and product data management. Founded in 1993, SolidWorks'' mission is to unleash the power of 3D for everyone in product development and foster a collaborative user community. In seven years of delivering product, SolidWorks has shipped more than 268,000 total seats of software worldwide. SolidWorks has offices around the globe and sells, distributes, and supports its products through a worldwide reseller network.
