Troy, Mich. – February 18, 2014 — solidThinking, Inc.
today announced that solidThinking Inspire
has been selected as the Golden Mousetrap Winner in the Design Tools - Hardware & Software CAD/PDM/PLM category. The awards celebrate the companies, products, and people who are energizing North American design, engineering, and manufacturing. The Golden Mousetrap Awards were announced at a ceremony held February 11, 2014 at the Anaheim Marriott.
industry leading editors worked tirelessly to evaluate the many entries received to select the products most deserving of inclusion on the list of finalists. The finalist entries were then sent to the entire editorial team and the distinguished Advisory Board for final selection of the winners.
“We are honored that Design News
has recognized solidThinking Inspire with the Golden Mousetrap Award,” said James Hassberger, President of solidThinking. “Recognition from an industry-leading publication like Design News
is a tribute to the innovative tools that solidThinking offers. It is our commitment to radically improve the product design process through the creative application of technology.”
solidThinking Inspire provides concept generation and inspiration for better products. It helps design engineers quickly create dramatically lighter structures and understand the effect of material placement in whatever they are developing. The software generates a material layout within a defined package space using the loads as an input. This design proposal can be evolved into a finished product with easy export to major CAD tools. Usage of solidThinking Inspire often results in lower costs, and may shorten the product development cycle.
“Winning the Golden Mousetrap is a true testament to the hard work that the entire team has invested to make solidThinking Inspire such a groundbreaking product,” said Andy Bartels, program manager at solidThinking. “We plan to continue to surprise and delight our users with our coming releases.”
