Product performance and capabilities are evolving exponentially, design and technologies are becoming more challenging, and market/business pressure are constantly mounting. These factors are driving the need for cohesive, adaptive design capabilities for today’s products that can only be produced effectively through purpose-built mechatronics software. With the dawn of the Mechatronics product design, the day of siloed engineering design tools has gone the way of the drafting board. Having

I’m sure I’m not the first to wonder what awesome products the great inventors of the world would have been able to create if they were alive and had access to the tools we use today. Back in 2014, I wrote an article asking this question of Leonardo daVinci: What if Leonardo da Vinci had SOLIDWORKS? The blog received a lot of interest, and it seems I was not alone, as many responded and shared the article. However, taking this thought to the next level: I was curious if these great innovators

If you are an electrical engineer, or anyone who designs electro-mechanical products then this is the SOLIDWORKS event for you. We will spend 40 minutes (or less) discussing “What’s New” in SOLIDWORKS for electrical engineers. At SOLIDWORKS, we are very excited about this launch, as it will be focusing on electro-mechanical design. So many SOLIDWORKS users are adding smart devices into their product lines, or building new smart products all together, as customers are demanding smart products

The term manufacturer takes on many meanings. For a lot of us along the gulf coast, that participate in the oil and gas and marine industries, it usually means custom, low-volume solutions, generally with short lead times. Busy manufacturing floors, packed with projects as varied as the customers. A dizzying array of parts flowing onto the receiving dock in a constant stream of delivery trucks.

Different types of engineers typically work differently. Though electrical engineers work in a totally different way than mechanical engineers, today’s complex design projects require tighter integration between the two disciplines. As design is changing at a rapid pace, and products need to be developed quicker, disparate engineering teams MUST work closer together. One of the largest challenges our customers face is that the ways in which these teams save their data is very different.

Kaum ein Produkt dieser Welt ist heutzutage noch rein mechanischer Natur. Die Elektrotechnik und Elektronik haben selbst in die simpelsten Produkte in unserem Umfeld Einzug gehalten, was sich auch auf die mechanischen Konstruktionsabteilungen auswirkt. Mechatronik nahtlos umgesetzt SOLIDWORKS Electrical und PCB Es gibt eine digitale Seite unseres Produktes, welches in einem System losgelöst von SOLIDWORKS entsteht. Das bringt typische Probleme mit sich, welche uns aus der Sicht des „Mechanikers“

“Electronics” is a very generic word today. It wasn’t when I was growing up, but I did grow up in somewhat of an electronics revolution, as PCs and electronic toys made their exciting debut when I was a kid. I was fascinated by how adding electronics to everyday toys brought them to life in a way I had never imagined possible. Today, that evolution continues.

Every year all resellers have a customer launch event where we showcase the new version of SOLIDWORKS. At Innova Systems we always try and add a little more value to the day by doing some breakout sessions on a number of different subjects. This year I was tasked with doing a “Tips & Tricks” session, which is normally very well attended. This often causes us a few issues, as things that we use on a daily basis, we don’t necessarily class as a tip or a trick.
