Harmony Is A Curve. 

That's the philosophy behind Domespace International, a leading innovator in the construction of eco-friendly homes. Based in Quimper, France, Domespace has transformed Principal Designer Patrick Marsilli's spherical home designs into world-class rotating, dome-shaped homes.

The Challenge

Visualizing eco-friendly house designs in 3D, assessing the viability of innovative home concepts, and ramping up production to meet increasing demand.

The Solution

Implement SOLIDWORKS Professional design software for concept development, SOLIDWORKS Premium design and analysis software for structural design, and SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis software for studying airflow and environmental conditions.

Results

  • Shortened time-to-market by 50 percent
  • Cut development costs by 50 percent
  • Increased design reuse by 50 percent
  • Reduced design errors by 30 percent

"The advantage of SOLIDWORKS design and simulation tools is that we can experiment with our concepts without incurring costs."
