Anderson Water Systems (Degremont Technologies)
- Reduced design time by 10 to 15 percent
- Improved design communication tools with SolidWorks eDrawings and 3D Instant Website
- Accelerated creation of piping assemblies
- Expanded 3D design department
Anderson Water Systems is an industrial water treatment equipment manufacturer designing large assemblies and piping configurations. The company needed to expand its 3D design section by using an economical design solution that matched or exceeded the company's existing design capabilities.
We chose SolidWorks software because it was more economical than our previous 3D software and provided a more complete package than the other software we evaluated, including Solid Edge and IronCAD. We were impressed with the breadth and depth of add-on solutions available to us through the SolidWorks Certified Gold Solution program. We also liked SolidWorks Corporation's focus on helping engineers and designers to communicate with one another with tools like SolidWorks eDrawings Professional and 3D Instant Website. We also use the SolidWorks Piping add-on module to create piping assemblies quickly, accurately, and with amazing detail. Using SolidWorks, we were able to expand our 3D design department, adding two users who quickly have become proficient with SolidWorks.
