In this month’s Tech Blog we are going to be kicking off a new series that tracks our journey to implementing Excel automation into our design workflow. I am sure at some point you have all seen previews or demos of the Excel Automation feature of SOLIDWORKS Electrical, however, these demos are usually represented within a very controlled data set that may or may not reflect your industry or design. Due to the fact that the demos are usually very generic, it may be hard to translate how this

Vor kurzem habe ich etwas Einzigartiges erlebt. Es war der Launch eines Projektes, dessen Vorbereitung ich bereits seit einigen Jahren unterstütze und dessen Start im September dieses Jahres hoffentlich den Beginn der größten Meeressäuberungsaktion der Geschichte bedeuten wird.

At SolidSolutions we run training courses for a large variety of manufacturing solutions such as SolidCAM, SWOOD and SigmaNEST alongside the newly introduced SOLIDWORKS CAM. To help make our training courses easier to understand and more relatable to real life working situations we have purchased a 5 axis milling machine to demonstrate the outputs from these programs in action. Not only is this machine versatile in its output, it is also quiet and portable, making it suitable for demonstrations.

1) Use the Large Assembly and Lightweight Modes for Assemblies/DrawingsLarge assembly mode will automatically triggersome set of performance improving options based on a user defined component threshold. Lightweight components have improved opening, rebuild, and closing times. Primarily the graphical information and reference geometry are loaded into memory, but the features that define the part are not loaded into memory. These cannot be edited or shown in the feature manager design tree.

I'm trying to use the design concept of a purse hook for a design to hold objects, like a smartphone, on the edge of a table. Here's how a purse hook looks like and works for those that don't know:File:Handtaschenhalter.jpg - Wikipedia There's little to no article about purse hook design on the web but just from looking at it, I'm guessing the purse's weight doesn't flip the hook over the edge because of a restoring torque but I'm not sure where this will occur.
