SOLIDWORKS in construction and structural design
Companies specialising in engineering services, equipment design, and structural, HVAC, and piping projects use SOLIDWORKS 3D development solutions to deliver innovative, cost effective designs.
SOLIDWORKS solutions provide a common model to develop complete and accurate designs that can be leveraged across planning, equipment design, layout, fabrication, and construction. You can easily explore design alternatives using 3D parametric design and simulation to optimise your designs against customer and project objectives. Also quickly create photorealistic renderings and fully-detailed fabrication drawings for structural designs, mechanical equipment designs, mechanical systems (HVAC), electrical cable layouts, and piping systems.

Nikkiso Corporation is a leading manufacturer of cryogenic pumps, which are submerged, motor-driven centrifugal pumps that are used for moving cryogenic fluids, such as liquefied natural gas (LNG), at temperatures below 0º C. In 2007, the company decided to consolidate product development at its Nikkiso Cryo Inc. (NCI) test facility, located in Las Vegas. This consolidation has allowed NCI to shorten delivery times and gain a competitive advantage.
