SWW 2015


There are 3 things we can count on in life: We are born, we die, and we have SOLIDWORKS World (taxes should maybe fit in there somewhere too).

Every year, the best and the brightest in the SOLIDWORKS user community gather together to glory in the latest 3D Design and Technology like giddy school children scampering at recess. And boy, do they know how to scamper.

We jumped into the fray, and were pleased to be an integral part of our parent company’s (Dassault Systèmes) booth, in the Partner Pavilion. Strategically located between our sister brands SIMULIA (advanced simulation) and SPATIAL (3D Software Components for engineering apps), 3DEXCITE BUNKSPEED showed how we lend visual credibility to engineering data.

Let’s face it. In this day and age, math and bare-bone models don’t do the trick. Everyone has to start there, but you wouldn’t pay to see Spider-Man, swinging around the streets of NYC, without the requisite photoreal visual flair. Neither would you want to present a design to a colleague, peer or stakeholder, without a high level of realism, that lets viewers experience your ideas in their full, vibrant intention.

As you know, this is where BUNKSPEED comes into play. At #SWW15 (cause we love hashtags!) we showed SOLIDWORKS enthusiasts how to make their designs beautiful, and maybe add a little somethin’ extra. We demonstrated the ease at which files are imported and made visually compelling for presentation and marketing purposes. We also showed how Augmented Reality (with our trusty McLaren AR App), can revitalize everything from sales pitches or design reviews, to positioning in the retail space.

David Randle, our General Manager, gave 2 talks at SOLIDWORKS World, detailing how to make BUNKSPEED a proverbial “camera” for SOLIDWORKS designs. If you didn’t get to attend, David would be happy to take a brisk walk around the block and tell you all the facts personally, cause he’s cool like that (note: he might not be cool like that). The gist of his talks was: if you want to show the world how your ideas could look in real life, even at the earliest stages of the design process, then call on BUNKSPEED.

The days of the show were chock full of meeting eager conference-goers, resellers and other industry professionals, who wanted to learn more about what 3D Visualization is really all about. We also gave hands-on software demos, both in our booth, and in at Dell’s, to show how we deliver on our FAST, EASY and FUN commitment.

As we finished out the show on Feb 11, we had the feeling that we came to the right place. We empower designers, engineers and marketing professionals with powerful 3D Visualization tools to make their ideas stand out with the visual advantage that they need. And we intend to keep pushing the boundaries.

Let’s make this Visualization Revolution a thing of beauty, that brings daring designs to the forefront of the world’s attention. And then we can continue to scamper. Cause we think it’s in our DNA.
