BLANKWORKS is the most accurate blank development tool for estimators and tool engineers on the market for SOLIDWORKS and provides users with a fully integrated method for developing optimal blank shapes for complex formed sheet-metal designs. It accounts for material stretch and deformation as well as bending, and can flatten any SOLIDWORKS geometry.
BOXX specializes in providing best of class graphics workstations designed to accelerate your CAD design or visual effects workflow. Solutions range from the ultra-compact APEXX 1, to the world’s most advanced desktop workstation, the APEXX 5.
CamTrax64 helps the designer create solid models of virtually every type of cam with the dynamic motion control parameters your system requires. During the design, CamTrax64™ generates charts when linked with Excel and adds a profile list to your drawing.
CamTrax64™ standard cam types include cylindrical cams, plate (aka disk) cams and linear cams. Choose the follower type that the design requires; on center translating, off center translating and oscillating (swinging arm). Selecting different motion synthesis is a snap with CamTrax64. Choose between virtually any standard cam motion with a couple mouse clicks. With Excel the designer can analyze the cam motions and compare different motion synthesis.
Don’t have Excel? Output can also be to a text file! Charted are displacement, velocity, acceleration, pressure angle, cam shaft torque, radius of curvature, contact stress and normal force.

DriveWorks Pro – Automatically generate the outputs and documentation your business needs to manufacture and sell variations of your products. Deploy your business to the web so that customers, salespeople and distributors can specify the products/orders that they require 24/7 from anywhere in the world.
DriveWorks Solo – DriveWorks Solo provides the means to capture and reuse rules needed to specify, design, manufacture, and Engineer-to-Order. With even more functionality to automate creation of parts, assemblies, and drawings.
DriveWorksXpress – Included with each of the SolidWorks 3D CAD design packages, DriveWorks Xpress software allows you to automate repetitive tasks and automatically generate design and manufacturing outputs required to create new and variant products
ElectrodeWorks™ automates all aspects of extraction, design, management, documentation and manufacturing of EDM electrodes.
Fully integrated into the SOLIDWORKS environment ElectrodeWorks guides you through the electrode design and production process. You design the electrode through a comprehensive yet easy to use user interface; the electrode manufacturing and EDM positioning drawings, and the machining files are created automatically. Seamless integration within SOLIDWORKS assures the complete parametric associativity of the data.
GearTrax™ provides the designer with an easy to use tool for creating solid models of drive components. Create spur, helical, straight bevel and involute splines with true involute tooth profiles. GearTrax is intuitively easy to use for the designer with limited gear experience yet powerful enough for the gear expert. The animation window shows the spur/helical gear mesh which updates as the data is changed. It is extremely useful in understanding how changes to the gear parameters reflects on the gear mesh.
GearTrax is more than a library program. Each part model is created with it’s specific requirements just as a designer would, but rather than taking hours or days, the part is created in seconds. GearTrax creates solid models of spur and helical gears, bevel gears, worm gears, involute splines, timing belt pulleys, chain sprockets and V-belt pulleys. GearTrax™ also integrates with Excel to create data sheets.
GeometryWorks 3D surfacing system is for use in the design and manufacturing of products with complex surface shapes. It is particularly well suited for use in mold-making industries, automotive and aerospace. GeometryWorks 3D enhances design and configuration activities with its superior surface building and manipulation tools. Surface offsets, trim surfaces, curve projection, translations, and rotations are all accomplished quickly with GeometryWorks 3D. It also efficiently and accurately creates a wide variety of different surface and curve types, all with a consistent geometrically intuitive interface.
As a SOLIDWORKS Gold Partner, GeometryWorks 3D works closely with SOLIDWORKS to provide a truly integrated design environment which takes full advantage of both technologies. This powerful combination allows designers to optimize even complex designs quickly, without ever having to leave the SOLIDWORKS environment.
Logopress3™ is a SOLIDWORKS Certified Gold Product for designing progressive dies, fineblank dies, and transfer dies. Designers who need to create die quotations via a quick strip layout, and sheet metal part quotations via a quick blank determination; all over the world are turning to Logopress3.
The work can be started from a SOLIDWORKS native part or, more commonly, from an imported part from another cad system. The entire process will be sped up thanks to the dedicated Logopress3™ functions and automation.
In only a few mouse clicks you can unfold your part and then model the intermediate stages that will allow defining the process that will become your strip layout. The K-Factors for each individual bend can be automatically calculated by Logopress3™ and the unfolding/unbending features can very easily be edited. This way, you can switch from a full unbending to a partial unbending. You can change the partial unbending angle value, you can manage the spring back options, the bend allowance, etc.
MoldWorks® is the premier 3D solid-based mold design application that delivers innovative, intuitive intelligent design tools for the injection molding industry.
MoldWorks is an innovative concept for designing molds for the injection molding industry. MoldWorks was conceived as a productivity tool to free designers from the tedious work of creating mold plates and components, as well as detailing slots and holes within the mold plates.
MoldWorks is seamlessly integrated with SOLIDWORKS allowing the full use of SOLIDWORKS modeling capabilities to quickly create mold tools, thereby reducing design time of the initial mold base from days to hours, and the detailed design time from weeks to days. MoldWorks is much more than a 3D solid-based mold library. It is a complete design environment based on R&Bs CAMD technology, which allows you to build the mold base, create the detailed mold tool, modify components and plates, check collisions, and output BOM and CNC data using menus suited to the mold design industry.
The NVIDIA GRID™ Visual Computing Appliance (VCA) is the only platform certified and supported by Dassault Systems to virtualize and remotely deliver SolidWorks over the network.
VCA is a powerful GPU-based appliance that can be centrally located and accessed via the company network. GPU acceleration gives users working locally or remotely, including notebooks or mobile devices, the same SOLIDWORKS experience they would get from a dedicated high performance desk-side workstation. It’s a powerful tool for small and medium-size businesses looking to provide their workforce with workstation-class performance anywhere, anytime – without the IT complexity of commercial virtualization solutions.
Bringing the power of organic SubD modeling to SOLIDWORKS
Power Surfacing is a revolutionary SOLIDWORKS plugin product that will fundamentally change the way that engineers and designers design parts in SOLIDWORKS. Power Surfacing makes it easy and fun to design complex free form aesthetically pleasing Class A surfaces in SOLIDWORKS.
