360 Grader Product Design
"SolidWorks is very easy to learn, intuitive to use and is the most common 3D tool used by our partners."
- Ole Olsen, Industrial Designer
One of the largest product design agencies in Norway, Oslo-based 360 Grader Product Design serves clients in businesses ranging from packaging and domestic products to military and medical equipment. To differentiate itself from competitors, 360 Grader needed to be able to deliver production-ready files. SolidWorks CAD software enabled the firm to do this, and, together with SolidWorks Simulation, allowed it to offer clients a complete product development solution.
The company chose SolidWorks because of many factors. SolidWorks CAD software was easy to learn and was used by companies around the globe. As a a result, with SolidWorks it was easy to communicate files to both co-workers and clients and to deliver production-ready files to clients. Lofting and surfacing capabilities enabled the design team to create complex shapes more easily, and with the embedded SolidWorks Simulation and SolidWorks Flow Simulation software, the firm's designers can perform structural, thermal, and computational fluid dynamics analyses to ensure product quality.
