Parrot has used the SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design application from Dassault Systemes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, to successfully design complex 3D shapes for a future line of drones.
According to Dassault Systemes, this application delivered significant social collaboration benefits to Parrot’s engineering and design teams. The application provides engineers with a cloud-based tool to design, collaborate and accelerate the design process – from concept to final product – anytime, anywhere.
“SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design enabled us to develop an innovative idea in a record amount of time, without being derailed by challenges inherent to traditional design software,” said Henri Seydoux, founder and CEO of Parrot.
Enhanced surfacing features allowed Parrot’s engineers and designers to create complex 3D shapes that were not possible before and easily transition to mechanical design. The application’s social collaboration capabilities also enabled Parrot’s teams in France and China to work together throughout the process to generate organic shapes in a reduced amount of time, Dassault Systemes explains.
