Multiple-CADEnvironment Manufacturing Using SOLIDWORKS 3D Interconnect
Machine shops often receive a wide variety of CAD formats from clients to run machining jobs. Or an in-house factory may need to program toolpaths on models from engineering teams on different CAD platforms. SOLIDWORKS 3D Interconnect can help with your multiple-CAD environment manufacturing.
How to Make Code-Free Reports
For those who are not familiar with SQL queries, we will look at tools in product data management (PDM) that can be used to generate a similar output.
Machine to the Mean with CAMWorks
Asymmetrical tolerances often cause headaches to machinists. To reduce the scraps and reworks, CAMWorks can help automatically machine to the mean sizes, rather than the nominal sizes.
Whitepaper: Superior product design through powerful in-cad simulation
Engineering successful, innovative products in today’s competitive environment requires simulation power. The ability to analyze the multifaceted physical performance characteristics of a design before making a prototype can substantially increase productivity. Companies need robust simulation tools to efficiently overcome time, budget, and quality demands. IN-CAD Simulation delivers powerful simulation capabilities that can solve complex analysis… View Full Story
Tipping the SOLIDWORKS Fantastic
An inescapable truth is that 3D modeling is an inherently complicated activity. Anyone who has done it knows that. Why? It’s because 3D modeling is all about building high-quality, accurate digital representations of real-world or potentially real-world objects, or sets of objects. Another almost universal truth is that in most 3D modeling programs there are… View Full Story
The MBD History and Successes at Gulfstream
Gulfstream designed two jet models concurrently, reduced barrel joining time from 3.5 days to 15 minutes, and cut part numbers by more than 50 percent. How did Gulfstream do it?
What’s New in SOLIDWORKS 2017: 3D PDF
Customizable annotation text scales and 3D PDF accuracy controls have been added. Let’s see how these new features serve a tower crane assembly better now.
Getting Started with 3D PDFs
3D PDF is a PDF file with 3D content embedded that lowers the 3D communication barrier and facilitates MBD implementations. Facing the rich content and capable functionalities inside a 3D PDF, how should we get started?
