SOLIDWORKS brought MCAD into the mainstream, taking control of the market—and Buchli wants to do the same for manufacturing.
Like a lot of SOLIDWORKS users, I have been observing the 3DEXPERIENCE platform mostly from afar. With fascination, I have watched my coworkers push-pulling models in 3D Sculptor and generating incredibly complex models in XGenerative ...
Speedway Motors is a storied business in the world of hot rods and automotive racing. In fact, they claim to be America’s oldest speed shop. Their business isn’t based on just selling parts off warehouse ...
The world of rugged, off-road vehicles is unforgiving. Vehicles take hard hits from flying rocks, dirt potholes, and embedded boulders, and they’re expected to hold up at highway speeds! Of course, because so much is ...
How smart software like SOLIDWORKS CAM contributes to Industry 4.0 smart manufacturing.
Engineers Rule looks at the way that the cloud, IT and the digital twin will be tied to manufacturing technology.
Sebastien Heintz, Zenith Aircraft Company CEO, Discusses How the Company Uses CAD and CAM to Make Aircraft Kits.
SOLIDWORKS 2018 released a dedicated CAM package. To automate the Numeric Code (NC) programming, it reads the surface finishes in 3D annotations directly attached to models. How does it work? What can you do with ...
For SOLIDWORKS users on subscription, a lot of CAM now comes at no extra cost. 5 axis and turning is extra, however.
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.
The modular suite of dimensional metrology software is used to qualify parts, identify and fix problems and improve manufacturing processes.
Better CAM strategies from the comfort of a familiar CAD user interface yields easy adoption and reduced cycle times.
Bow-and-arrow design has been difficult for millennia. Now, digital manufacturing is making it a bit easier.
Better, faster and cheaper in plastic.
How Arizona’s AMFM bucks the trend of declining U.S. manufacturing employment and creates a model for a new manufacturing landscape.
Online sources for manufacturing are using algorithms to tear down the barriers to entry.
SOLIDWORKS is the most widely used MCAD package across the globe and is employed by more designers and engineers than any other.
Engineers tell the next generation what they should be learning.
