SOLIDWORKS Advanced Part Modeling

Technology & Process Solutions

Javelin SOLIDWORKS Technology solutions enables companies in the automotive and transportation industries to collaborate on the design of innovative products with exceptional style, weight, and performance.

Our solutions allow automotive designers to:

  • Design and Deliver Intelligent Vehicles

    SOLIDWORKS can accelerate product innovation throughout the supply chain with tools that ensure you meet your deadlines and your products meet their performance and quality goals.

  • Imagine and Collaborate Vehicle Concepts

    Enhance customer satisfaction and communicate concepts early in the design phase with SOLIDWORKS by using 3D models and creating photo-realistic imagery with Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) capabilities so you can “see” your concepts in the real world.

  • Manage Product Development

    Technology that facilitates multi-site manufacturing, supply chain operations and quality compliance.

OEM Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing Solutions

3D printing provides manufacturers with prototyping, advanced tooling and production applications. Additive manufacturing with Stratasys is the cutting edge of the automotive and transportation industry.

Our additive solutions allow automotive manufacturers to:

  • Prototype Ideas Into Production

    Go from the design studio to the factory floor in a fraction of the time it takes other development processes. Produce street ready parts for realistic product tests.

  • Simplify Production by Working Smarter

    Optimize your assembly and create QA tools. Avoid scrap and retooling by testing injection-molds and other tools before machining them.

  • 3D Print Concepts

    From scale models to product concepts, additive manufacturing helps designers shape the way cars are imagined and made.

  • Small Production Runs and Vehicle Customization

    Tailor vehicles to a specific region or market, while keeping customization in sync with the rest of product development. Customize repairs, restorations, and accessories with advanced 3D printed materials.

Technology for Automotive Design

Drive innovation and connectivity with SOLIDWORKS software

Consumers want attractive and user-friendly vehicles that incorporate advanced safety features and performance. SOLIDWORKS® enables companies and suppliers to deliver value to an extended team that designs, manages, and simulates complete products or subsystems.

Customer Example

Accelerating Canadian Transmission System Design with SOLIDWORKS Simulation

Litens Automotive Group is the global leader in the design and manufacture of engineered power transmission system design and components.

Litens use SOLIDWORKS Simulation software’s fast and robust solver and complete CAD/CAE integration helping them to speed up their transmission system design process

Automotive Process Management

Communicate and collaborate with your team and suppliers

Break down barriers within teams and suppliers with a single centralized Bill of Materials (BOM) from any CAD model. Define, communicate, collaborate, and predict how designs will perform so they can be optimized before they are built. Minimize redundant parts and change modifications by leveraging existing parts. Securely reuse product design Intellectual Property (IP) across projects to focus on innovation.

Replace Expensive CNC Production

By replacing expensive and lead-time critical CNC-milled parts with in-house manufactured plastic parts, you can dramatically reduce your production costs. The printed plastic parts also perform better technically, weigh less, and are well suited for the production of complex bodies that, when using conventional metal-cutting processes, would be very difficult and costly to produce.

Create Better Assembly Tools

For hand-held devices used on the assembly line, engineers can employ 3D printing to make ergonomically designed assembly aids that perform better than conventionally made tools.

Test and Identify Design Problems

In some cases using CAD models alone is not as effective at finding design problems as a 3D printed physical part – you can easily identify a component issue that may have been missed in the initial design stage.
