To empower a new era of 3D product design innovation, global printing and PC major HP and 3D experience leader Dassault Systemes on Monday announced a unique collaboration here.
The two companies aim to optimise Dassault Systemesâ€™ industry-leading "SOLIDWORKS 3D" design and engineering applications to take advantage of the unique capabilities of HP's Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions.
"The $12 trillion manufacturing market is being digitally transformed and HP and Dassault Systemes share a vision to change the way the world designs and manufactures," said Stephen Nigro, President of 3D Printing, HP Inc.
HP and Dassault Systemes will align future technology roadmaps to provide users with access to the latest design tools integrated with HP's "voxel-level" technology, as well as design tools for new materials.
"We are honoured to bring the HP Multi Jet Fusion platform together with SOLIDWORKS' leading design platform and millions of users worldwide to give creators the the tools to build the next great innovations," he added.
With this, designers and engineers can completely reimagine products, leverage new materials, escape the limitations of traditional manufacturing, and produce new products more quickly and efficiently.
Millions of designers and engineers are already using SOLIDWORKS applications to quickly bring innovative ideas for new consumer experiences to market.
"Innovators are driving tomorrow's industry renaissance, and additive manufacturing, new materials and 3DEXPERIENCE twins are opening up a world of possibilities where they can test and create their concepts," said Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systemes.
"Our investments in materials science combined with HP's open approach to materials development are also key to accelerating the 3D printing industry. Together we can expand on the technologies of both companies," he added.
In addition to the HP Jet Fusion 300/500 series, HP also announced its new workstation, VR, and 3D printing and scanning products and services.
