Technology & Process Solutions

SOLIDWORKS High Tech solutions provide critical capability to connect electronics and mechanical design teams with requirements and project management disciplines, and external partners.

Our solutions allow High Tech designers to:

  • Streamline IoT Design

    The benefits of 3D design have now been expanded to include solutions for connected devices. The SOLIDWORKS ecosystem allows you to design ”smart products” without any boundaries because all tools for designing a mechatronic device now work in sync.

  • Integrated Mechatronics Design

    To develop mechatronic solutions, you need a fully integrated electrical design package that fosters cooperation and collaboration between electrical and mechanical designers, as well as between the design, engineering, and manufacturing departments.

  • Communicate and Collaborate

    High-tech companies need to be able to develop products that not only function properly, but are attractive to customers. You need a solution enabling you to communicate with customers better, and react faster to market needs in a single platform.

Additive Manufacturing Solutions

In the competitive world of high tech design, having an in-house 3D printing capabilities enhances collaboration, reduces time to market, and helps protect your innovative ideas until launch.

Our additive solutions help high tech product designers to:

  • Get to market faster

    Get to market faster than the competition with speedier design cycles. Go from design to prototyping in hours, not days. Blaze through product improvement with rapid prototype revisions

  • Innovate

    Allows product designers to produce any form they can imagine, in real space and time. Then test and revise at will.

  • Simplify Workflow

    Get better results by removing steps and complexity from your workflow. By producing full-scale prototypes straight from CAD design, your design reviews go smoother with hands-on consumer insight that is more informed.

  • 3D Print with Static-Dissipative Materials

    3D print with thermoplastics that prevent a buildup of static electricity. Ideal for electronic products with circuit boards. High tech product manufacturers can expand the use of 3D printing onto the assembly line.

Technology for High Tech Design

Drive innovation and connectivity with SOLIDWORKS software

Smart electrical consumer and IoT products involve the marriage of many different systems, resulting in design and manufacturing challenges. Mechatronic designers need a capable solution to solve their challenges in order to meet the desires of today’s consumers and the needs of cutting-edge businesses.

SOLIDWORKS offers a suite of software solutions that brings a greater level of connection and clarity to the process. Now teams can share data and ideas, quicker and easier than ever before:

Customer Example

Nautel uses a combination of SOLIDWORKS products at every stage of production

Using a variety of products in the SOLIDWORKS family is meeting Nautel’s unique needs in equipment design, testing, production, deployment, servicing, marketing, and sales.

Global transmitter manufacturer Nautel run their business with SOLIDWORKS.

High Tech Process Management

Communicate and collaborate with your team and suppliers

Reduce the time and expense required to manage, archive, and track design documentation and cost-effectively automate documentation to securely archive and organize multiple versions of projects.


Additive Manufacturing High Tech Solutions

Advanced materials and techniques for prototyping


Designers, engineers, sales and marketing staff all utilize high tech 3D printed prototypes to better communicate the products aesthetics and performance.

Before a Cell Phone is held up to an ear, or a Black & Decker tool helps you improve your home, these products are ideas in the minds of designers and engineers. Prototyping gives them form and makes perfection possible.

The quickest way to get accurate prototypes is with 3D printing. Watch the video below to learn how it makes product design faster and better, and designers more confident.


3D Printing Technologies

3D printing allows high tech manufacturers to test for fit, form and function and in some cases test their designs in real world conditions.

Realistic appearance models are achieved with Stratasys PolyJet 3D printers which work with an extensive array of materials which include clear, flexible, rigid, rubber-like and with a full spectrum of vibrant colours. Make your design reviews and focus-group sessions more productive with lifelike prototypes.

When you need to build your prototypes in the same materials as your finished product, Stratasys offer patented FDM technology. FDM printers work with material such as ABSi, PC, PC-ABS and Nylon 12 to name a few. Save time and money by prototyping early in the design process
