It always comes down to cost. How many times have you been deprived of something because it’s just too expensive? On the design side, you always have to keep in mind how much your product is going to set you back, going from computer screen to an actual tangible product. Conversely, if you are on the side that’s going to be manufacturing that design, you probably don’t want to spend your entire day quoting out your clients’ projects, but actually spend some time building the part too!
Whichever side of the equation you fall under, SolidWorks Costing should have something to satisfy everyone. The best part about it is that it updates in real time and is extremely configurable. This means that as a designer, you can add or subtract features and have SolidWorks tell you the impact of your design change on the over-all cost per part; whether it’s a quantity of one, five, or 4000. If you have a cost target in mind, Costing lets you make decisions where you can choose what’s most important to you in your design, and you can nip and tuck until you achieve your goal.
