TROY, Mich., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- solidThinking, Inc. announced today that its solidThinking Inspire software has been named a finalist in the Design Tools category of the Design News 2013 Golden Mousetrap Awards.
Design News is a leading publication and community of design engineers. The finalists for this year's Golden Mousetrap award were selected by Design News' Advisory Board and Content Team. Of the many submissions, 55 finalists spanning 15 different categories were selected.
"We are honored that Design News has recognized solidThinking Inspire as a finalist for the best design tool Golden Mousetrap Award," said Jim Hassberger, President of solidThinking. "We are committed to radically improving the product design process through the introduction of ground-breaking tools such as Inspire."
solidThinking Inspire accelerates the product design process by generating the ideal shape for a structure, given its package space and the loading it must support. The software is easy to learn and works with existing CAD tools, helping design parts right the first time, eliminating costly trial and error.
The Golden Mousetrap Awards aim to recognize innovation and new products in four main categories; electronics and test, automation and control, design tools, and materials and assembly.
The winners of the 2013 Golden Mousetrap Awards will be announced during a live ceremony held in conjunction with the Pacific Design & Manufacturing Show on Tuesday, February 11th in Anaheim, California.
