SOLIDWORKS modelling software success

L-A-C Logistics Automation SOLIDWORKS Modelling Software Success Story

A plan we’ve wanted to put in place at L-A-C is to change our design software from 2D based software to 3D modelling software. It became evident to us that SOLIDWORKS was the number one software system to use within our industry. Innova Systems had a solution that has helped us enhance our design process across all our product and service offerings.

When using SOLIDWORKS we’re able to draw out rendered drawings making it easier visually to understand and reduce our margin of error. Due to multiple users being able to work on the same design, it enhances collaboration between different teams on the project at the design stage. The software has helped our customers visualise the machine and conveyor system we are providing and the value they will be getting from it. The video case study below goes into more detail about how this software has enhanced our team’s capabilities and is allowing us to deliver increased value to our customers.
