  • Speaker Notes:Whatever it is you’re creating, we have the expertise and the solutions to get you there. We work with companies across many industries, facing many different engineering and business challenges – from Medical to Aerospace and from Consumer to Education - the challenges are different to get your products out the door and delivered to your customers. To achieve this you need a powerful set of tools to keep your people productive.
  • Slide Message :SolidWorks is more than just CAD. We have a complete toolset to create, simulate, publish, and manage data. Speaker Notes:Let’s take a few moments to talk about the SolidWorks toolset and exactly what it is we bring to the table. Our customers ask us for a robust set of tools through every step of the design process. Our offering includes four distinct product lines: 1. Design tools to create models and assemblies2. Simulation tools to test the design and ensure it is the best it can be 3. Publishing tools for creating documentation to support the design and…4. All of these tools are underpinned by SolidWorks Enterprise PDM to manage and securely control your data All of these solutions work together to allow your company to make your products better, faster, and cheaper. Let’s take a closer look at these elements starting off with the design tools.
  • SWIFTWhile most designers understand how powerful the capabilities of 3D CAD software can be, many of these same users may have felt they were forced to spend a significant amount of time mastering the system to recognize the inherent benefits. SWIFT is just one of the things that lets any SolidWorks® user realize the benefits of 3D CAD without having to learn complicated techniques. In other words, SWIFT lets you focus less on the CAD tool and more on your design.

  • Slide Message : We are much more than just software – our community of passionate users helps you every step of the way. From blogs to 3D content to VAR support, you’ll always have somebody to talk to about SolidWorks.Main Points: More than just software A huge community to ensure your successSpeaker Notes:All of these tools and the entire SolidWorks community are available to support you, put you in production quickly, and be as productive as you can be both short and long term. This extends from the fact that we have one million users, many of whom post and participate in blogs, forums, and discussion groups. And, there are more than 24,000 educational organizations who are producing one million graduates every year skilled in the use of SolidWorks and fueling recruitment for tomorrow’s engineers. And <VAR Name Here> supplies technical support, training and implementation to help get you up to speed quickly . We also provide support backed by SolidWorks on the web and email so that 24x7 you can get the help you need when you need it. We also have millions of parts online at 3D ContentCentral – the quickest way to design a part is not to design it at all - just download it.  To see this community in action just type SolidWorks in Google and you will see Blogs, Youtube videos, Tweets and more. This is evidence that there is a huge quantity of material available from our community to help you get the most from your implementation.
  • difficult questions.
  • SolidWorks product line is extensive, and, while we do not have time to get into all of the finer points today, I wanted to show you this slide for you to see the breadth of the offering. And, if need be, we will gladly work with you on a one-on-one basis to find the SolidWorks product that best fits your needs.
  • * HSMXpress + SolidWorks Deal - This free download delivers what would normally cost CAD/CAM users $5000 for the MasterCAM, CAMWorks, SolidCAM, etc. equivalent. If you have in-house CNC machining, this is essentially a $5000 coupon for fully-integrated SolidWorks CAM and you can initiate the free download, purchase SW w/ CE, and get free online HSM training
