Control Engineering Recognizes SolidWorks® 2009 for Design Simulation 

CONCORD, Mass., USA, March 2, 2009 – Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp. (DS SolidWorks) today announced that its 3D CAD software, SolidWorks® 2009, has won a 2009 Control Engineering Engineers’ Choice Award in the design simulation category.

In addition to SolidWorks 2009, eighty-five new products were nominated in 25 different categories. One winner from each category was chosen based on votes from Control Engineering readers.

“As in the past, this year’s ‘Engineer’s Choice’ contest drew a heavy amount of voting in each of the 25 categories. The high level of recognition and respect among Control Engineering subscribers for SolidWorks 2009 3D CAD software indicates increasing interest in this category and admiration for SolidWorks products,” said David Greenfield Control Engineering editorial director.

SolidWorks 2009 is the newest version of the most widely-adopted 3D CAD software. The software helps designers and engineers develop better, higher-quality products.

“At SolidWorks we have long believed that analysis and simulation tools should be a part of every engineer’s tool box, not relinquished to the specialists. This award speaks volumes to the value our users see with our built-in simulation tools and further enforces our position as developers of more than just CAD, but end-to-end engineering tools,” said Fielder Hiss, SolidWorks director of product management.
