Problem:
The design & computing world has changed – Teams that used to be in one location are now fragmented and globally distributed. And teams are also changing faster, with people coming on and off projects all the time. Traditional CAD was never built for this new model of distributed design.

Solution:
SolidFace teams can consider more design alternatives and see what each other are doing in real time. SolidFace eliminates the traditional CAD hassles like license-sharing, copying files, locking, worrying about CAD versions, amongst other problems. So Teams can spend more time designing better products and less time wrestling with CAD. Also is important to add that SolidFace is more affordable than our competitors

Validation:
For over forty years, the CAD software market has seen good times. Those are expected to continue in the future. We’re not alone in realizing it’s time to move CAD to the cloud. As example OnShape a browser cloud CAD and Fusion360 direct modeling Cloud CAD. Both well-funded companies and acquiring traction fast. That all point to a new revolution where a community of makers, hardware startups, and personal technology products such as 3D printers, has democratized design. Instead of engineers, entrepreneurs and consumers are using design and collaboration software to shape the next big thing.


Market:
According to a report by Jon Peddie Research Publications, the CAD industry is expected to grow at a rate of 8.6 percent over the next ye

Mike Attaway

PLM and CAD technology is at a precipice of change. I think that Solidface Technology is right at the edge of that innovation. I look forward to seeing Solidface Technology becoming a leader in PLM tech because they are a hybrid CAD system. They have both a local save option as well as a cloud collaborative technology option. This is way more desirable from a company perspective because the company is in control of the intellectual property, not the CAD company, unlike many other "cloud based cad companies". Also, Solidface has a client based tech model verses a web browser based model. While a browser based model is supposed to be more independent, it can introduce incompatibilities based on browser changes to which web based source software is forced to adapt - these companies/sources don't always have fluid communication.

Solidface Technology is the wonderful realization of a galvanizing dream by authentic, dedicated and richly experienced CAD Developers who want to put the benefits of groundbreaking affordable technology at the core of their business without the gimmicks of a transient business.

Their 2D/3D solutions are at the vanguard of disruptive technologies and boldly challenge the conventional norms through the innovative use of real-time collaborative modules, user-friendly interface and easy adaptability to dynamic needs with significant budgetary relief.

They were recently recognized as one of the 'G-Startup Worldwide Tokyo Top 25', and I have no doubt that further accolades will keep on coming. This is the wave of the future!

Roberto Payaro CEO at Nortel - Sonepar

Excellent software, friendly, easy to use with online queries and fair cost per license.

Mike Scanlin CEO at Born To Sell

Big market, solid team, solid collaboration software for 2d & 3d design, with online AND offline access (unlike competitors), and at a cost per user that makes this a no brainer decision for their customers.
