Engineer Matt Moseman lets us in on how Ringbrothers uses modern machine tools and advanced CAD software to pull off some of the most exciting car mods on the road today.
Many manufacturers are moving toward Model-Based Definition (MBD), but the daily productions cannot run without 2D drawings. How can you accommodate both approaches? SOLIDWORKS MBD 2018 built a bridge in between.
Pairs of tabs and slots are widely used in self-locating and self-fixturing designs such as food processing machines and furniture. Up to now, it has been time consuming and repetitive to manually create multiple pairs ...
Configurations are very popular among SOLIDWORKS users, but how can you present multiple configurations and associative properties in one 3D PDF document? SOLIDWORKS MBD 2018 now provides the answer.
Laborious 3D annotations and their overwhelmingly busy displays present constant challenges to MBD implementations on both the authoring and consumption sides. Let’s see how SOLIDWORKS MBD 2018’s can help.
Flow Simulation gets liquid-gas interface upgrades.
Mounting clearance hole patterns are widely used in mechanical and electrical designs. Because a pattern holds multiple fasteners to fasten and stabilize components together, the entire pattern, rather than individual holes, is typically established as ...
Not only can SOLIDWORKS Design Checker detect potential model quality issues, but it can also help correct them.
With Model-Based Definition (MBD) datasets, how can you communicate more in 3D models directly and less in 2D drawings with your suppliers and clients? Let’s check out the data exchange support added to the latest ...
How can you make sure that your 3D models are built with high quality to drive the model-centric manufacturing processes? SOLIDWORKS Design Checker can help.
Are your MBD views crowed with 3D annotations? Try combining multiple callouts into a single annotation.
Keeping current with SOLIDWORKS enhancements can help users work more efficiently.
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 ...
Are you running simulations with models of non-SOLIDWORKS formats? Check out how 3D Interconnect can help.
What MBD benefits did Johnson Controls observe? How did it manage the transition from 2D drawings to MBD?
An example of automatically integrating design changes into a weldment simulation study.
This guide describes how to use SOLIDWORKS Composer to properly document a project.
