CAD in the Cloud

Many companies still deploy their SOLIDWORKS CAD and PDM on local laptops and server, which encourages engineers to be at the same physical location for optimal performance. Unfortunately, in today’s hyper-competitive world of product development, this is like tying a ball and chain around your ankle as you prepare for a sprint.

Some companies have attempted a work-around by employing a VPN to connect remote SOLIDWORKS users to the office, only to discover that their remote CAD and PDM performance is less than ideal, and in many cases unusable.

Recognizing the trend among companies to rely on remote design teams for agility and innovation, SPK and Associates developed a secure cloud hosted SolidWorks CAD in the Cloud and SolidWorks PDM in the Cloud solution that enables these teams to work remotely without interruption 24/7.

Our cloud based virtual CAD Workstation (vCAD) is capable of running a heavy graphical processing load required by CAD designers. Coupled with SPK’s PDM in the Cloud, this cloud solution removes the pains of designing, validating and distributing CAD data for remote engineers.
