Computer Simulation Technology (CST), has joined the SolidWorks partner programme 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 optimisation.
SolidWorks, from Dassault Systèmes, is a 3D CAD and project management software, used by millions of engineers worldwide. CST Studio Suite is a package of cutting-edge electromagnetic simulation tools for modelling and optimising 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 analysed in CST StudioSuite, and designs can be optimised 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.
“Through our membership in the SolidWorks partner programme, we aim to give both SolidWorks users and CST Studio Suite users access to best-in-class design tools,” commented Dr Martin Timm from CST. “We see benefits for engineers in many industries, especially those working with complex components such as connectors.”
