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.

My name is Jamison Go and I am the team captain, primary driver, and one of the engineers for the BattleBot SawBlaze Team. Currently I am a R&D engineer at an additive manufacturing startup in the Burlington, MA. My experience is in both mechanical and electrical engineering, and I have spent many years as a researcher in robotics and additive manufacturing. My teammates (Lucy Du, John Mayo, Chris Merian, Joao Ramos, Alex Hattori, and Mason Massie) are either current students or alumni of MIT.

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.

The Manufacturing Technology Centre at the Coventry – University of Warwick, UK, developed and implemented a Design, Programming and Robotics residential course this past summer. MTC shared their story with SOLIDWORKS. The goal of the course was to design a robotic rowboat using a combination of Computer Aided Design (CAD) and programming skills to solve an engineering challenge. There were 3 main elements to this challenge;

With the completion of the Labor Day holiday, we have officially entered fall of 2018. For me, this means lots of exciting things: college football, family holidays, SOLIDWORKS 2019 and IMTS 2018 in Chicago. You may be asking what is IMTS? IMTS stands for the International Manufacturing Technology Show.

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

Shooting great moving shots with a camera can be done with super steady hand but sometimes that’s not enough. Sometimes you need a mount to help get those shots to be steady and precise. Unfortunately some if this equipment can be really expensive for someone starting out and can creating videos as a hobby. So we designed this awesome DIY dolly using some Skateboard wheels, Solidworks and 3D printing.

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

Multi Material 3D Printing is a way of printing with different materials to create more complex parts and parts that have multi colours. Most of these machines only have the capabilities of printing two material but for the tutorial we used an Original Prusa i3 MK2s with the Multi material upgrade which can print up to four materials. Multi material printing has some great advantages but it also has some disadvantage. these pros and cons need to be weighed up to find the balance to where you

Additive manufacturing, also commonly referred to as 3D printing, is a manufacturing process by which material is added, layer by layer, to build a part. The process starts with a 3D model that is designed in the user’s native CAD program. That part is then analyzed and sliced into in many sections to create a build plan for the part. The popular technologies for additive manufacturing include Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS),

I recently took a trip to visit some of the schools I work in Montana to discuss their STEM Program. One of the schools I visited called Billings Career Center, a Career, and Technical education-focused school, had an exciting project they worked on with NASA using our STEM in a BOX program. The teacher and his students designed parts in SOLIDWORKS, then 3D printed prototypes, and machined the final versions. They then sent the finished versions to NASA.
