CORTIME to exhibit SolidWorks Integrated Design Exploration at SolidWorks World 2019

Copenhagen, Denmark.  CORTIME, a pioneer in making powerful design exploration available to a broader audience, is proud to announce that the CORTIME software will be exhibited at SolidWorks World 2019 in Dallas TX from Feb 10-13, 2019.  CORTIME provides SolidWorks Design Exploration for both analysts and designers in booth 228.

CORTIME is the next generation design exploration tool leveraging advanced parametric optimization, sensitivity analysis, visualization tools, and an intuitive user experience that is fully integrated with SolidWorks. CORTIME came about as a result of a PhD thesis in 2012 when Thøger Kari Hass, an optimization specialist and software developer saw the need for a much simpler and more efficient way to optimize CAD designs.

CORTIME helps engineers explore optimal designs, by automating their design evaluation process by exploring based on the demands for your design and its performance goals. An example could be wanting to reduce the mass, while not compromising the durability of a product.  CORTIME utilizes advanced parametric optimization, sensitivity analysis, and design study visualization to enable intelligent automated exploration of the potential design options.

Design Exploration has been available for quite some time with SolidWorks, but before CORTIME nobody has made this powerful technology accessible enough to use for every SolidWorks user.  For too long, powerful optimization technology has been collecting dust because the current design exploration software is too complicated to use. What makes CORTIME different is that the powerful capabilities are provided with a robust and intuitive user experience enabling designers to evaluate design options early and often in the design process. As an example, CORTIME includes robust behavior that automatically handles any SolidWorks model rebuild issues.

“Optimization and design exploration have been limited to simulation experts for far too long,” said Rasmus Høtoft, CEO of CORETIME.  “We have developed CORTIME to make this powerful capability available to everyone in the design process and thereby enabling smarter design decisions throughout the entire design lifecycle.”

A design exploration in CORTIME can be set up in three easy steps:

  1. Define the areas of your design, where CORTIME can make alterations
  2. Identify the objectives you want CORTIME to achieve
  3. Click “Start optimization” and CORTIME will do the rest

When the optimization is finished, CORTIME provides intuitive data analysis tools for selecting and analyzing the optimal design. CORTIME requires no expert knowledge or lengthy and expensive training to get started.

“CORTIME simply gives me a better overview of the data and it gives me more time to focus on other tasks,” said Morten Hansen, R&D Engineer at BROEN.

CORTIME breaks the expertise barrier making Design Exploration broadly available.  Design Exploration is not just for experts anymore.


CORTIME is a parametric optimization tool for SolidWorks. Founded in 2013, the purpose of the company is to help product developers become more effective in the design process. Currently, CORTIME is exclusively integrated into SolidWorks (including SolidWorks Simulation) but welcomes partners interested in integrating their software with CORTIME.  Anybody with a SolidWorks license can experience CORTIME themselves by downloading the software at cortime.com.
