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

Großartige Konstruktionen beruhen auf Innovation, Qualität und Leistung. Um diese großartigen Konstruktionen umzusetzen, müssen Ihre Tools flexibel und leistungsstark genug sein, um kreative Prozesse zu ermöglichen und zugleich die Entwicklung komplexerer Produkte zu unterstützen. Mit der richtigen 3D-CAD-Software können Sie das fertige Produkt in jedem Stadium visualisieren und einfach Fertigungsprobleme erkennen, die Sie bei Verwendung einer 2D-Zeichnung unter Umständen erst in der

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.

Using the standard SOLIDWORKS tools and features from the CommandManager is already an extremely efficient method to quickly bring concepts into a three dimensional model. However, many users prefer to leverage a variety of both standard and custom shortcuts through hotkeys or context menus for an even faster workflow. This article covers many of the most impactful default keyboard shortcuts in SOLIDWORKS, and describes how to customize them for maximum time savings. While using SOLIDWORKS, all

When projects are created in SOLIDWORKS, the files are often saved in a convenient location, but without any defined folder structure. It is not until the project becomes extensive that users decide to go through the model files to better organize them. A user may want to move model files to new folders, change the names to something more meaningful, or replace an older component with a newer version. If these changes are done through the standard Windows Explorer, errors and warnings will

The idea to build a custom, lightweight racing version of a Catrike 700 recumbent trike started when SOLIDWORKS developer Arnav Mukherjee started training on a stock version of the same trike. Arnav had set the goal to join Team Dassault Systèmes (Team DS) and ride in the 2017 edition of the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge (PMC), a 192 mile, 2 day charity cycling event in which Team DS has participated for 16 years. Arnav decided upon Catrike as his bike of choice since he wanted to ride a bike

Are you an engineer on the go and need to access your SOLIDWORKS software from your laptop as well as your workstation? Or perhaps your company requires licenses to be transferred often between machines? We have a couple of solutions to make it easier for you to access your standalone SOLIDWORKS license from more than one computer. Inside SOLIDWORKS there is an Activate/Deactivate mechanism to release the license back into the server and allow the license to be accessed by another computer.

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.

One item that is always high on the priority list of development is assembly performance. Every SOLIDWORKS release we see new functionality coming available, like Large Design Review and SpeedPak in the past. But not everything can be solved with options like these, sometimes an engineer needs to model parts with less detail, so the overall assembly performance remains high. In SOLIDWORKS 2018 the Assembly Performance Evaluation tool is expanded, so you can better understand which parts should
