HumanCAD®-MQSW: Mannequin for SOLIDWORKS®

HumanCAD-MQSW is a human modeling solution add-in for SOLIDWORKS that creates a 3D digital human within the context of an assembly document. HumanCAD-MQSW aids in the design of products using SOLIDWORKS by determining what humans of different sizes can reach.

The new HumanCAD-MQSW demonstrates our continued innovation that started in 1990 with ManneQuin, the world's first PC based human modeling solution and was followed by ManneQuinPRO and ManneQuinELITE and the HumanCAD V2 platform. Thousands of users in various industries, government organizations, universities and consultants worldwide have acquired these human modeling solutions.

HumanCAD digital human modeling technology is an important tool in determining the human fit of products and workplaces before they are built.
