Case Study: Commercialising automated dispenser with SolidWorks

Supplier: Intercad Pty Ltd
10 February, 2012

The Philadelphia-based consultancy chose SolidWorks Professional design, and SolidWorks Simulation Professional and SolidWorks Simulation Premium analysis software to drive it product development process because the solutions streamlined interaction between industrial designers and engineers.

Award-winning product development firm Bresslergroup used SolidWorks design and simulation software to innovate this automated towel dispenser for the home market.

The Challenge

Bresslergroup is one of the preeminent product development consulting firms in the United States, with more than 125 patents and more than 80 major product design awards. The consultancy decided more than 15 years ago to replace its AutoCAD 2D design tools with a 3D design environment to improve productivity, increase innovations, and take advantage of simulation technologies.

The Solution

The Philadelphia-based consultancy chose SolidWorks Professional design, and SolidWorks Simulation Professional and SolidWorks Simulation Premium analysis software to drive it product development process because the solutions streamlined interaction between industrial designers and engineers; provided surfacing and configuration tools; and included integrated linear and nonlinear analysis applications.

By selecting SolidWorks solutions, Bresslergroup reduced its industrial-design-to-engineering cycle by significantly, reduced prototyping iterations from its development process, optimised designs using design-table-driven simulations, and achieved production cost reductions.

The Results

  • Reduced industrial design to engineering transition
  • Cut prototyping iterations from development process
  • Optimised designs via design-table-driven simulations
  • Achieved production cost reductions

Benefits:

  • value
  • results
  • power
  • collaboration
  • 2D/3D transition
  • implementation
  • ease of use
  • training
  • support
  • data exchange
  • career advancement
  • focus on design
  • design better products
  • innovation
  • manufacturability
  • advanced modeling
  • integration
  • design reuse

"With SolidWorks software,the back-and-forth between industrial design and engineering takes 30 percent less time, which translates into a shorter overall development cycle and faster time-to-market for our clients," David Schiff, Director of Engineering said.
