“SolidWorks is the
standard for 3D mechanical design software,” said Brian
Houle, Partner Program manager for SolidWorks. “Combining it
with ProFab gives engineers the tools they need to do their
jobs faster and better by reducing programming time and
increasing shop floor productivity.”

Customer Case Study
H&M Metals uses the ProFab
direct interface in SolidWorks to deliver a quality product
in a timely manner.
According to project engineer Gerry Trubey,
“A recent project I worked
on was adding rivet holes to a large complex frame. I did
the work in the customer's SolidWorks files and then
transferred the changes into ProFab."
