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

SOLIDWORKS is turning the spotlight on manufacturing. This year’s event will feature, for the first time, a 40 x 70 ft. “Shop Floor” booth, recreating a typical manufacturing environment for the production and inspection of an automotive gear shift arm. Parts will be manufactured and inspected from part designs produced in SOLIDWORKS 2018 complete with embedded Model Based Definition (MBD).

前回のモデルベース定義(MBD)導入に関する注意点(進捗を評価する)では,NIST の開発した MBD 能力評価について触れました。レベル 0 とレベル 1 の決定的な違いは,図面中心型かモデル中心型かという点だったと思います。今回はこれをもう少し掘り下げ,2 次元図面を設計の原本とするのをやめた方がよい理由を説明します。 表 1: MBD 導入における 10 の注意点 まずお聞きします。

Mit der Option freie Oberflächen in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2018 zu berechnen, bieten sich dem Anwender eine Reihe neuer Anwendungsbereiche. Als freie Oberfläche wird in der Strömungssimulation die Interaktion zwischen Flüssigkeit und Gas in einem Rechenraum bezeichnet. Ein konkretes Beispiel für eine frei Oberfläche ist das Anbranden einer Meereswelle am Sandstrand und das damit verbundene Auftürmen der Wassermassen. Berechnung von Strömungssimulationen anhand von freien Oberflächen mit

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.

Touch controls have been introduced in SOLIDWORKS 2018 in the form of the all new ‘Touch Mode’. All you need to try these out is a touch enabled screen, Microsoft Windows 10 and a license of SOLIDWORKS 2018, so let’s give it a go! The first thing we will need to do is activate the Touch Mode, which can be found on the View Menu. Once activated it will display your touch controls on the left side of the screen.

Author: Bryan Sprange, CSWE, Javelin Technologies Much like when SOLIDWORKS made your first sketch dimension auto scale your whole part back in 2014, with the release of SOLIDWORKS 2018, they have added another feature that users have asked for which makes modeling your designs easier even if it seems like a minor update at first glance. If you change your mind on the choice of hole in the SOLIDWORKS 2018 Hole Wizard tool, you no longer need to remember and re-input your hole specifications!

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

SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 introduit un nouveau type d’étude, l’étude de topologie, qui permet aux concepteurs et aux ingénieurs de développer des composants plus légers et innovants. En se basant sur les blocages et chargements, l’étude de topologie « retirera » des éléments du maillage par éléments finis jusqu’à ce que la masse cible ou le meilleur rapport rigidité/poids soit atteint. Ce processus itératif de suppression d’éléments est limité par les contraintes de l’étude, telles que la

With each annual release, SOLIDWORKS looks to streamline their tools to make the designer more productive. One of the most commonly used tools is the Measure Tool! We can use it to measure the lengths of edges, determine the distance between planes and surfaces, and even calculate the surface area, among many other applications. In 2018, SOLIDWORKS made it even better.
