Over the past thirty years, Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology has become a familiar route for validating CAD before committing to costly manufacturing tooling and processes. It may come as a surprise to some just how broadly the range of roles AM technology now plays in mechanical design and manufacturing, thanks to the swiftly changing professional desktop 3D printer ecosystem. In addition to traditional rapid prototyping, this technology now offers teams better tools for shaping initial

Many years ago (actually 25 years, pre-Quicken), my wife was balancing our checkbook when the battery died in her calculator. She came into my home office and asked to borrow mine, I happily lent it to her. As I expected, she was back a few minutes later with some choice words for me. I lent her my HP 15-C, a calculator that relies on reverse polish notation.

If there’s one lesson fans of science fiction have learned in the last month it’s that the past is gone (right Kylo?). In reality, however, the past is never gone. Surely 2017 was full of lessons learned and challenges hurdled. Unfortunately for us there are no end credits when we emerge victorious after completing a major project.

The goal of SOLIDWORKS World has always been to inspire attendees so they can take the knowledge and new skills obtained from the event home with them and use them to create truly innovative designs. One way that is accomplished is by providing ample opportunities to network and share tips and tricks with the over five thousand like-minded peers in attendance. There is also the Partner Pavilion where you can get your hands on the newest technologies that further leverage the power of SOLIDWORKS.

As we wind down from the fantastic Thanksgiving parade that happened last Thursday, now is a great time to reflect on the preparation and engineering that goes into making those parade balloons soar! The first instance of parade balloons being used was back in 1927. This is where Felix the Cat made his first-ever appearance. Here, in SOLIDWORKS, I have modeled a similar looking balloon to inspect its design.
