Lino® Simplify - simplify Solidworks® assemblies individually and automatically

Experience the Solidworks-integrated simplification of complex CAD assemblies in the Lino Simplify webinar. Due to increasing globalization, more 3D models are being exchanged with external partners. This carries the risk of unintended use of the models. Companies can prevent this by sending simplified and disguised 3D models. This protects intellectual property and makes reverse engineering very difficult. Simplification takes place in a fully automated process. As soon as the correct settings have been made, Lino Simplify takes effect. The Solidworks add-on application works for both part and assembly files and processes all dependent files as part of the simplification process.
