Simpleware Design Link Module

Simpleware Design Link passes data between Simpleware ScanIP and SOLIDWORKS

Link Simpleware ScanIP & SOLIDWORKS for Product Development

Simpleware Design Link allows users of Simpleware software and SOLIDWORKS® to harness the power of both software packages and speed up product development workflows. The module eliminates the need to import/export between the two packages. With Simpleware Design Link, updates are passed between SOLIDWORKS and Simpleware ScanIP with a single click, enhancing iterative product design workflows such as patient-specific implant planning.

Why use Simpleware Design Link?

Simpleware Design Link enables Simpleware ScanIP’s powerful 3D image processing (MRI, CT…) functionality to work alongside SOLIDWORKS to design ideal parts and complement real-world image data.
