A leader in the decorative lighting market in France, 3E International, an INDAL Group company, develops a wide range of lighting furnishings. The company was using Autocad, but wanted a 3D CAD system. The design team chose SolidWorks CAD software for its parametrics, drafting, bill-of-material automation, and interface with SolidWorks Simulation family products.
After evaluating several systems, 3E International chose SolidWorks CAD software for its price and ease of use. SolidWorks software also provided the 3D parametric design and drafting and bill-of-material automation that the company was looking for. The SolidWorks tools for modeling, surfacing, and sheet metal design -- along with the interface to SolidWorks Simulation and SolidWorks Flow Simulation for design validation -- allow the company to create innovative, complex shapes and make better, higher-quality designs faster and easier.
