It was a packed house for the New Horizons general session on day two of SOLIDWORKS World. So packed, in fact, that two additional overflow rooms had to be opened to accommodate the enthusiastic group of attendees. It appeared that there was no shortage of attendees who wanted to see how far advances in many areas of science and engineering have gone. First up was Stuart Constantine, co-founder and editor of Core 77, who spoke on the importance of the three Cs: community, collaboration and craft

A new era of product design innovation is upon us. 3D printing and digital manufacturing have reached the point where the question is not how, but when will additive technologies go beyond the existing limitations of traditional manufacturing. Companies at large will embrace additive manufacturing, and designers cannot ignore it or may find themselves in the position of writers who stuck to their typewriters, or photographers who insisted that film and chemicals would prove no match for

New to SOLIDWORKS 2019 you are now able to use any black and white image and to create geometry on your model with the 3D Textures command. This tool provides many options when looking to create patterns of complicated shapes; it is also likely the fastest way of embossing a complicated logo onto your part. After seeing an example model from the developers, we decided to test just how capable this new feature was.

Cinema might be over a century old. But it’s showing no sign of slowing down. Even a quick glance through its history tells its own filmic story of technology’s progress through the decades. From humble, silent monochrome beginnings, through to the lush, colourful expanse of CinemaScope, 3D and today’s jaw-dropping digital effects, film has both pushed and chronicled the latest in technology for audiences worldwide.

In our case, the “napkin sketch” quickly turns into a Sketch Picture in SOLIDWORKS to start the design. I had a request to create a dolphin model and I decided to make it a case study on going from a 2D sketch to SOLIDWORKS to a 3D print. Being a long-time user of SOLIDWORKS but new to 3D printing, I wanted to pass forward what I already learned to anyone unfamiliar to 3D printing. First, the top and side profiles were created and brought in as two separate Sketch Pictures which helped to create

While 3D printers have been around for over 30 years, the reality of using a printer for manufacturing purposes at a reasonable price has only recently been available. 3D printers ascended to prominence largely on the backs of desktop machines, while printers capable of producing parts that would survive the factory floor were exorbitantly expensive. This created a false but lasting perception in the industry: you could either get cheap 3D printers to make trinkets and toys or million-dollar

If you are maker, tinkerer, hobbyist or an inventor, chances are you are part of or have heard about FabLab. If you are still curious, a Fab Lab is a community space that provides its members—makers and hobbyists—with off-the-shelf, industrial-grade fabrication tools such as laser cutters, milling machines, scanners, 3D printers and software design tools. It lets them translate their ideas into real products and sometimes create products yet to be envisioned by the established manufacturer. With
