Engineering consulting firm Tischler Resources assisted in the development team for Convergent Dental, a startup company based in Natick, Massachusetts, to develop the Solea CO2 dental laser—the first device of its kind to receive approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use on hard and soft tissues—in less than two years. The multi-person team needed a robust, integrated development environment to achieve this ambitious goal.
Tischler Resources and the Convergent Dental development team selected SOLIDWORKS® design and SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM (EPDM) product data management solutions because the software is easy to use, provides robust surfacing design capabilities, and includes effective design visualization and communication tools. By choosing SOLIDWORKS Tischler Resources and the Solea development team delivered the first FDA-approved dental laser in just two years, won the 2014 Medical Design Excellence Gold Award, facilitated collaboration across five-person team, and accelerated the ECO process with an automated workflow.
