Systems equipped with Solidworks, Catia, Abaqus and Auto Cad  Arrangement in the Laboratory


Approximately 30 workstations having configuration, as mentioned below:
Intel Xeon Quad core, RAM-8GB, Motherboard- Intel, Graphics-NVIDIA, Quadro 2000 1GB, Harddrive-320GB(mini), SATA Hard drive (7200rpm), Storage device-DVDRW, Network Controller- 100/1000 GB Ethernet, Operating system- Genuine Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, Keyboard: USB, Mouse Optical

All the workstations are equipped with a number of useful software; a few of them are listed below.

1. SolidWorks 2013
SolidWorks offers complete 3D software tools that let you create, simulate, publish, and manage your data. Our products are easy to learn and use, and work together to help you design products better, faster, and more cost-effectively.

2. Catia V5 R20
CATIA goes far beyond traditional 3D CAD software tools to offer a unique Digital Product Experience, based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Sustainable development is driving companies around the globe to create a constant stream of innovative and inspiring smart products. Engineering, Design, Systems Architecture and Systems Engineering of these products becomes more demanding.

3. Abaqus/ CAE 6.11-1
It is a software suite for finite element analysis and computer-aided engineering, originally released in 1978. The name and logo of this software are based on the abacus calculation tool. The Abaqus product suite consists of four core software products.

4. AutoCAD 2013
AutoCAD is a software application for computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting. The software supports both 2D and 3D formats. The software is developed and sold by Autodesk, Inc., first released in December 1982 by Autodesk in the year following the purchase of the first form of the software by Autodesk founder.
