Edited Excerpts:

Q: How prepared are the Indian manufacturers to adopt 3D printing technology as the Indian market is very cost sensitive?

A: We have been providing solutions to our clients in India for over 20 years. We started in India with high-end companies such as Tata Motors and Mahindra & Mahindra to design cars digitally. Today, our products like SOLIDWORKS provides capabilities to small and medium-sized enterprises. These companies are not using drawings anymore, they want to use 3D designs to make them more efficient. Large companies are using our solution to reduce the complexity of their product while small companies are adopting 3D designs, modelling and simulation. It is now evolving and is true for transportation and mobility and heavy equipment sectors. These technologies are becoming more affordable for planning a city, building a bridge, improve the safety of the infrastructure.
