“The benefit of SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer extends beyond productivity improvements. The overarching benefit of SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer is that it liberates our creativity so that we can do what our imagination wants instead of what the software forces us to do.”

SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer (SWID) enables you to create multiple 2D and 3D industrial designs concepts, where product aesthetics are being evolved and judged. In this phase, many ideas are captured and developed in response to a design brief or problem statement.

These ideas are then reviewed by internal and external stakeholders before investigating further and refining the best designs. What you, as an industrial designer, truly need is an integrated, synchronized design solution that enables you to collaboratively transform ideas for new product concepts into reality.

You need an industrial design environment that offers better, integrated tools for sketching, visualizing, and modeling new concepts, allowing you to increase your focus on design aesthetics by stripping away the many ancillary tasks associated with single-point solutions. You need the freedom to quickly create multiple industrial design concepts in a short amount of time, and solicit and evaluate stakeholder input and feedback in real time, before integrating your industrial design data with product design, engineering, and manufacturing systems.

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
