Computer Simulation Technology(CST) has joined the Dassault Systèmes’ SOLIDWORKS Partner Program as an official Solution Partner. In conjunction with the new partnership comes the ability of CST’s flagship EM simulation tool, CST STUDIO SUITE®2014 to import models from SOLIDWORKS directly. Direct SOLIDWORKS import together with CST’s new CAD import version control is a powerful combination for rapid design and optimization.
SOLIDWORKS is a 3D CAD and project management software, used by millions of engineers worldwide. CST STUDIO SUITE is a package of electromagnetic simulation tools for modelling and optimizing designs across a wide range of application areas. Using the new SOLIDWORKS import feature introduced in CST STUDIO SUITE 2014, the two products can be combined in one straightforward workflow to help engineers bring their ideas to fruition faster and more effectively.
The performance and EMC compliance of products designed in SOLIDWORKS can be analyzed in CST STUDIO SUITE, and designs can be optimized to help ensure that they meet specifications. Both individual parts and entire assemblies can be imported, to allow components to be simulated both in isolation and as part of a system. SOLIDWORKS is used in a wide range of industries and across many application areas.
“Through our membership in the SOLIDWORKS Partner Program, we aim to give both SOLIDWORKS users and CST STUDIO SUITE users access to best-in-class design tools,” commented Dr. Martin Timm, Director of Global Marketing, CST. “We see benefits for engineers in many industries, especially those working with complex components such as connectors.”
CST will be holding a series of local workshops across North America and Europe to demonstrate the latest features in CST STUDIO SUITE 2014 and show how electromagnetic simulation can be used in the design and development process in various application areas.
