- Expanded into smartphone underwater enclosures and other markets
- Cut design cycles in half
- Designed first dedicated enclosures for professional digital movie cameras
- Minimized errors and physical prototyping
Leveraging the expertise gained working with famed underwater cinematographer Pete Zuccarini, who shot the underwater sequences for the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and the Oscar-winning film Life of Pi, Watershot, Inc., has grown from working primarily on special projects to become a leading manufacturer of all types of waterproof enclosures. Watershot relies on SOLIDWORKS Premium design and SOLIDWORKS Simulation analysis software to develop watertight enclosures that withstand the pressures and forces associated with various depths underwater.
Watershot’s engineers have come to value the software’s intuitive integration of CAD and finite element analysis (FEA) tools, combination of visualization and surfacing solutions, and compatibility with tooling and manufacturing partners. By choosing SOLIDWORKS solutions, Watershot has expanded into smartphone underwater enclosures and other markets, cut its design cycles in half, designed and built the first enclosures for digital movie cameras, and minimized errors and physical prototyping.
