Transforming Ideas into Innovative Products with SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer
CHANNELING CREATIVITYUsing SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer software, Studio Gecchelin can more effectively tap its design creativity because the software eliminates many of the hindrances to freeform design. “With SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer software, I can feel the seduction of the shapes that I’m creating, and the software helps to channel my creativity in productive ways,” Gecchelin notes. “I don’t have to struggle with splines, tangencies, and geometrical constraints with SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer,” Gecchelin continues. “Design creation is a stream of consciousness activity with intense concentration that drives the flow of creativity from the designer’s mind to the screen. Because SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer allows me to maintain this focus, I’m more efficient while developing design concepts. In addition to empowering creativity, the software makes concept creation more enjoyable.”
MORE EXPLORATION, LESS BUSY WORKSince implementing SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer software, Studio Gecchelin has realized the ability to create more design concepts in less time, enabling the industrial design firm to spend more time exploring innovative design concepts and less time on software and administrative tasks. “When creating a design, I always know where to start but I don’t know where the design will take me,” Gecchelin stresses. “That’s why the freedom to explore is critical to what I do. “Developing design concepts involves a playful tension between the creative and the destructive,” Gecchelin adds. “With SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer software, I can quickly and fluently capture my ideas, then push and pull on a design to discover where I can take it. It’s a process that produces better results, and SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer facilitates this process by removing barriers to creativity.”
BRIDGING GAP BETWEEN INDUSTRIAL AND MECHANICAL DESIGNBecause SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer software includes parametric design capabilities and integrates with SOLIDWORKS mechanical design software, the solution helps facilitate collaboration between industrial and mechanical designers. This includes tools for quickly and easily creating solid models from surface geometry and executing design changes to the industrial design model. “Successful product designs blend the creativity of aesthetic shapes and forms with the practicality of production requirements,” Gecchelin says. “SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer software bridges the gap between industrial and mechanical design because it lets industrial designers work in a similar parametric environment. When changes, such as increasing the wall thickness, are necessary, the industrial designer can easily make those changes in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer software, maintaining the original design aesthetic while addressing pragmatic needs.”
Eliminate the barriers and limitations to design creativity characteristic of existing industrial design modeling applications.
