Vancouver, Wash. - Feb. 9, 2015 - Wacom, the leading manufacturer of pressure-sensitive pen input devices for professional creators of digital content, played a key role during the development and testing phases of Dassault Systèmes’ newly launched 3D design application, SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design. As part of Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design improves the overall design process by offering a flexible and intuitive design environment. This new cloud based application allows engineers and designers to tackle industrial design challenges in a collaborative manner before seamlessly and efficiently transitioning to the detail mechanical design phase of a project.
SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design R&D, product management and sales teams employed Wacom’s Cintiq Companion and new Cintiq 27QHD during the application’s various stages of development all the way through final testing before launch. The Cintiq’s natural, pen-on-screen and multi-touch workflow aligns elegantly with the software, providing a user experience that expertly emulates the feel of traditional media. In addition, the Cintiq’s ability to speed productivity and enhance collaboration either across the hallway or across the globe, parallels SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design’s goal of accelerating industrial product design by allowing designers to develop and share ideas on the cloud.
“Our relationship with Wacom is a testament to the power of teamwork, built on the strength of our companies’ passion for building great products for the industrial design community,” said Nick Iwaskow, senior alliances and partnership manager, Dassault Systèmes. “Whether designing the next aircraft or household appliance, using SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design on a Wacom Cintiq offers today’s designer a natural, fast and collaborative way to create.”

Wacom revolutionized the nature of digital input when it introduced its family of interactive pen displays, allowing users to work with a pressure-sensitive pen directly on screen. Today, thousands of creative professionals count on Wacom interactive pen displays to deliver superior control and productivity to their workflow.
