CST Joins Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Partner Program
New interface between CST STUDIO SUITE and SOLIDWORKS Introduced
Darmstadt, Germany, May 8, 2014 – Computer Simulation Technology (CST), has joined the
SOLIDWORKS Partner Program as an official Solution Partner. In conjunction with the new
partnership comes the ability of CST’s flagship EM simulation tool, CST STUDIO SUITE® 2014 to
import models from SOLIDWORKS directly. Direct SOLIDWORKS import together with CST’s new
CAD import version control is a powerful combination for rapid design and optimization.
SOLIDWORKS, from Dassault Systèmes, is a 3D CAD and project management software, used by
millions of engineers worldwide. CST STUDIO SUITE is a package of cutting-edge electromagnetic
simulation tools for modeling and optimizing designs across a wide range of application areas.
Using the new SOLIDWORKS import feature introduced in CST STUDIO SUITE 2014, the two products
can be combined in one straightforward workflow to help engineers bring their ideas to fruition
faster and more effectively.
The performance and EMC compliance of products designed in SOLIDWORKS can be analyzed in CST
STUDIO SUITE, and designs can be optimized to help ensure that they meet specifications. Both
individual parts and entire assemblies can be imported, to allow components to be simulated both
in isolation and as part of a system. SOLIDWORKS is used in a wide range of industries and across
many application areas.
“Through our membership in the SOLIDWORKS Partner Program, we aim to give both SOLIDWORKS
users and CST STUDIO SUITE users access to best-in-class design tools,” commented Dr. Martin Timm,
Director of Global Marketing, CST. “We see benefits for engineers in many industries, especially those
working with complex components such as connectors.”
CST will be holding a series of local workshops across North America and Europe to demonstrate the
latest features in CST STUDIO SUITE 2014 and show how electromagnetic simulation can be used in
the design and development process in various application areas. For more information, visit
