SolidWorks and Koenigsegg
I just found out the other day that Koenigsegg uses SolidWorks to design there cars. Knowing that, I am very compfortable using the software for my business.
Koenigsegg, do you have any comments about the program or anything you would like to say?

I use solidworks all the time. I was slightly surprised to find out when I heard they didn't use Catia by DSS instead. I love SW though, it's a great program. The only thing that busts my balls is the fact you can't go backwards in versions (i.e. open a SW2012 file on SW2011). The solidworks site has a pretty cool video about the cc being designed entirely on sw

That's pretty cool - would be awesome to get your hands on the assembly files for it.
I'm a Unigraphics/NX person myself, but most 3D software has the same capabilities these days.

We use solidworks for everything at Bosch. All your injectors, Fuel rails, spark plugs, ECU's/TCU's... everything we do is in solidworks for the most part

That's pretty surprising, I would think they use pro E or catia.
I know how to draw in SW but I can't stand doing cad. Maybe it's because I had a dumb teacher, but mainly because I don't have the temper to deal with it

Do any of you designers use simulation software to test the designs before they go into physical prototyping? For instance for structural integrity or life cycle fatigue testing?

David, if you don't mind me asking, what exactly do you use solidworks for in your line of work? I'm a huge car guy and love hearing about other peoples' projects and work. Sounds like you might be into some pretty cool stuff
