Dassault Systèmes Announces SOLIDWORKS Education Edition 2014-2015

Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced SOLIDWORKS Education Edition 2014-2015. Powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the latest version of SOLIDWORKS Education Edition includes numerous new additions to its 3D design software applications portfolio, delivering a rich array of offerings that further the ability of students to design, including 3D CAD, Simulation, Product Data Management, Technical Communication and Electrical Design.

As the global SOLIDWORKS community surpasses 100,000 certified users, educators and administrators recognize SOLIDWORKS training, education and certification are major assets validating student expertise to prospective employers.

“As a Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate (CSWA) provider, Clemson University’s engineering students have contributed to more CSWA’s than any other US university. In fact, Clemson is one of the top producers of CSWAs in the world,” said John Minor, General Engineering, Clemson University. “The General Engineering program at Clemson has provided a solid foundation to prepare students for our global commercial customers.”

“The world needs engineers, innovators, and design leaders. Dassault Systèmes is committed to improving STEM education and bringing those next generation leaders to the forefront,” said Bertrand Sicot, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes. “The SOLIDWORKS education community is full of SAE Collegiate Design Series competitors and FIRST Robotics winners.”

The integrated SOLIDWORKS Education 2014 -2015 applications portfolio includes new tools and enhancements to improve teacher efficiency, shorten student design processes, increase team collaboration and enable educational productivity across numerous areas. Key new SOLIDWORKS Education Edition additions include, among others:

  • Teaching guides and lessons, updated with new content to provide educators with additional support for developing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum. Click here for more information on enhanced sample curriculum;
  • Libraries of robot assembly models to help competitive teams in FIRST robotics and other platforms such as LEGO, TETRIX by Pitsco and MATRIX. More examples will be developed as contest rules apply throughout the upcoming school year;
  • SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium for interactive FEA results. Click here for further details;
  • Path Dimension, a key sketch feature for robot and FSAE teams that need to design with chains and belts. Click here for further details;
  • Curve-Driven Patterns, a feature that enables faster and easier creation of patterns, such as chains and conveyor systems. Click here for more details;
  • Assembly Explode, to add rotational explode to components and more clearly and effectively communicate product assembly processes on drawings and in animations. Click here for more details;
  • SOLIDWORKS Electrical, sold separately, is fully integrated into SOLIDWORKS Education Edition. SOLIDWORKS Electrical enables students in engineering, robotics, and other disciplines to create electrical projects starting with 2D system schematics and ending with 3D routing and cabling interconnecting components.

Qualified schools are given SOLIDWORKS Student Edition licenses at no charge for use by their students outside the classroom. In addition, schools with a SOLIDWORKS Education subscription can become a Certified SOLIDWORKS Academic Exam Provider and administer the Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate (CSWA) exam to their students.

In a new step for SOLIDWORKS Education, beginning this month, all FIRST Robotics teams are eligible for a SOLIDWORKS Robotics Sponsorship, which is based on and includes SOLIDWORKS Education Edition 2014-2015.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
