As a leading provider of 3D human anatomy content, Zygote Media Group, Inc. has experienced an increasing demand for anatomical CAD models to serve as templates for medical device manufacturers that are developing new lifesaving technologies. The growing number of requests for soft-tissue models like the heart prompted the company to evaluate available 3D CAD modeling and surfacing technologies for producing licensable, parametric CAD models.
The company selected SolidWorks Standard because of its ease of use, advanced surfacing capabilities, broad data compatibility, and widespread use throughout the medical device industry. By implementing SolidWorks, Zygote realized a productivity gain of 300 percent; improved its ability to model complex, organic shapes; facilitated cardiac product development by its customers; and developed the first anatomically accurate CAD model of the human heart.
