Low Vision International AB with subsidiaries in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Belgium, and Switzerland today is among the world’s leading producers of products to help visually impaired people. LVI has developed a new video magnifier for visually handicapped people. The product includes features such as HD video, touch screen, and text-to-speech conversion.
Two years ago Low Vision International AB replaced its existing 3D CAD system with SolidWorks. They chose to change CAD systems because SolidWorks has more built-in features of the kind they like to work with. It is also a very user-friendly system. LVI uses the CAD system to design for instance plastic, sheet metal parts, lighting systems, and optics but also to do a lot of simulations and collision testing.
- Using SolidWorks we saved 6-8 weeks in the development process
- By using SolidWorks Simulation, physical prototypes have been reduced from two-three to one
- Photorealistic renderings of the product for the brochures during the design phase
- SolidWorks is a user-friendly system
