Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. (CSI) chose SolidWorks CAD, SolidWorks Simulation Premium analysis, and 3DVIA Composer technical communication software because of their ease of use, advanced manufacturability assessment tools, integrated simulation applications, and design communication solutions.

By implementing SolidWorks solutions CSI is revolutionizing the treatment of vascular disease through the development of a disposable, diamond-coated catheter-based device.

Challenge:
 
Develop, commercialize, and manufacture clinically proven, safe, and effective medical devices for the treatment of vascular disease.
 
SolidWorks Benefits:
  • Reduced development time by 25 percent
  • Cut manufacturing costs by 20 percent
  • Introduced effective treatment for removing arterial plaque
  • Improved health and lifestyles of vascular disease patients
Christopher Narveson, Design & Engineering Services Manager, says “We are also using 3DVIA Composer to create animations of new designs for consulting physicians to show how the product will inject, travel, and work.”
 
SolidWorks 3D CAD Software and 3DVIA Composer are available from Intercad in Australia and New Zealand. Intercad also offers training and technical support for SolidWorks and 3DVIA.
