Dassault Systemes has set up first of its kind SolidWorks Authorised Training Centre (SATC) programme in India.
SolidWorks supports the global 3D computer-aided design (CAD) industry with easy-to-use 3D software that trains and supports engineers, according to an official statement.
The centre will offer organised SolidWorks training to increase the size of the certified SolidWorks community in India. Dassault Systemes plans to set up 50 such training centres across the country over the next 5 months, it added.
SATC will be set up with the help of the SolidWorks extensive reseller community in India. Private training institutes will be encouraged to set up SATCs across the country. The SATCs will be offered the SolidWorks EDU (Private career) licenses on a subscription basis. SATCs shall be offering SolidWorks standard training course content with the help of certified trainers –Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA)/Certified SolidWorks Professional (CSWP)/Certified SolidWorks Instructor (CSWI).
Dassault Systèmes boasts a large presence in India’s 3D design industry with numerous partnerships, in particular the aviation industry.
However, according to Michel Tellier, Vice President, Aerospace & Defense, Dassault Systèmes, composites for 3D printing are the biggest disruptions when it comes to designing.
Companies build structures directly and do not design anymore, he explained, conventional models of production rely on large, interlinked manufacturing facilities like design and integration.
In the last two months the political environment in India has changed enough to make a decisive technological leapfrog. “The Indian aerospace industry is very rich,” Tellier said while speaking on the sidelines of the 3DEXPERIENCE Forum 2014 in Bangalore, India, “but needs to marry the knowledge with technical expertise.”
Tellier also noted that India has already made major advances despite the slew of delays in the development of the indigenous Light Combat Aircraft, or LCA, which was due to replace aging Russian MiG-21 fighters.
“The question isn’t why India is not able to do the LCA in five years. But what is the next target for India from here? What can be learned?” Tellier said. “The Rafale, for instance, is Dassaults 15th aircraft.”
Tellier added that anybody who has tried to do what India has with the LCA has failed. Offering Japan as an example, he explained, “Eventually after 12 years they had to kill the project.”
