Supplied by: Intercad Pty Ltd
01/04/2011 - Circulating high volumes of air—whether it’s in an industrial plant, a commercial place of business, or your home’s foyer—requires a "big ass fan".
That’s why the company once known as the HVLS Fan Company changed its name to Big Ass Fans—it designs and manufactures among the largest high-volume, low-speed ceiling and vertical fans on the planet.
Big Ass Fans chose SolidWorks design and SolidWorks Simulation analysis software because it is easy to use and lets the company take advantage of automated design configurations, virtual prototyping techniques, and 3D visualization tools. By selecting SolidWorks, Big Ass Fans cut its design cycles...

Jason Williams, Product Designer, says: "With SolidWorks design configuration tools, we create one design for each model and use configurations to account for different foil lengths and available options and accessories. The software has helped us to grow our product line and boost throughput."
