Vote for solidThinking in Design World’s 2014 Leadership in Engineering awards

solidThinking Inspire isn’t simulation for Design Engineers, it’s inspiration for better products. Inspire can help every Design Engineer, Product Designer, and Architect quickly create dramatically lighter structures and better understand the effect of material placement in whatever they’re developing.

                   We believe you should design lightweight in, not engineer mass out. A traditional structural simulation allows an engineer to check if a design will support the                              required loads. Inspire generates a material layout within a defined package space using the loads as an input. This efficient design proposal can then be evolved                          into a finished product with easy export to major CAD tools.
