Aerosol and Particle Technology Laboratory (APTL)
- Reduced design cycles by more than 50 percent
- Improved efficiency when making design changes
- Elevated the quality of design presentations
- Enhanced ability to design functional prototypes
Aerosol and Particle Technology Laboratory (APTL) conducts basic and applied research and develops new technological products in the aeras of clean transporation, clean energy, and in-situ process monitoring. The research facility needed a 3D CAD program to increase the complexity and efficiency of its research.
The research laboaratory chose SolidWorks software because of its short learning curve, ease for making design changes, and advanced visualization and presentation capabilities. By deploying SolidWorks, APTL reduced its design cycles by more than 50 percent, improved its efficiency when making design changes, elevated the quality of its design visualization/presentation capabilities, and enhanced its ability to design functional prototypes.
