The Company
Vuzix is a leading supplier of Smart-Glasses, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality technologies and products for the consumer and enterprise markets. The company’s products include personal display and wearable computing devices that offer users a portable high quality viewing experience, provide solutions for mobility, wearable displays and virtual augmented reality.
The Problem
Vuzix needed to increase efficiency and decrease the time they were spending on developing new products. Excessive time was also being spent on physical prototype testing, which resulted in numerous, costly iterations having to be made before the final release of the product.
The Tools
SOLIDWORKS Simulation: provides core simulation tools to test designs and help determine the most effective ways to increase product quality. Possesses full integration that eliminates redundant and time-wasting tasks. SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation: provides users a fast and easy way to determine the impact of a liquid or gas during the design phase of their product.
The Result
Vuzix has experienced the numerous benefits of implementing and integrating SOLIDWORKS Simulation and Flow Simulation into the company’s design process.
“SOLIDWORKS FEA software and Flow software allows us to iterate our designs faster, prototype, and get us into production faster,” said Jon Roat, Mechanical Engineering Manager at Vuzix. Using SOLIDWORKS Simulation and SOLIDWORKS Flow software has not only significantly reduced the amount of physical prototypes, but it has also enhanced the quality and longevity of Vuzix’s products.
