Product Resolutions Ltd. provides a complete solution for innovative design, manufacturing, and supply. We wanted to create photorealistic presentations of our designs without being constrained by software limitations, while also being able to create final engineering and part drawings for production. We were using 3D Studio and 3D Studio Max for client presentations and then using AutoCAD to create engineering drawings. 3D Studio had modeling limitations, while AutoCAD was slow.
We evaluated Alias Wavefront and found it to be too focused on concepts with no engineering drawing capabilities. We also evaluated Pro/ENGINEER and AutoCAD but chose SOLIDWORKS CAD software for its ability to produce 2D engineering drawings directly from 3D files in minutes. We use Visualize to improve the quality of our renderings, which has led to better communication among team members and with clients.
