HawkWare - Productivity Tools from Hawk Ridge Systems

HawkWare™ - 3 New Productivity Apps
HawkWare is a full suite of productivity applications from Hawk Ridge Systems to enhance functionality and usability of SolidWorks design tools. Designed, developed, and maintained by Hawk Ridge Systems, the apps give our SolidWorks users the most flexibility and performance from the software. The Software Development team at HRS is pleased to introduce three new versions:

>> HawkWare Treeview - a desktop utility providing easy visualization of complex SolidWorks file references. Zoom, expand, and collapse any branch of the tree, and manage custom properties for any reference.

>> HawkWare EPDM Custom Notification - expands the robust EPDM notification system. Select your recipients, save to a dynamic list, and use file categories and workflow states for your notifications.

>> HawkWare EPDM Folder Permissions Editor - quickly and easily access and modify user and group permissions for folders and templates. Add or remove folder permissions in bulk.

SolidWorks EPDM     CFD Exposed - SolidWorks Flow Simulation

Customer Corner: CEL MFG.

Cutting Edge Laser Improves Manufacturing Efficiencies With SolidWorks

Cel Mfg in Seattle, WACEL, a Seattle-based sheet metal fabrication company, uses SolidWorks to improve its design and manufacturing process by simulating test runs before ever making a cut. The 3D simulation allows CEL to test the viability of manufacturing a product, improve the efficiencies, and reduce design drafting time significantly. This contributes to a lower price, a higher quality product, and faster manufacturing. As they said in the CEL blog, "Ultimately, SolidWorks allows us to find the most efficient route for manufacturing your goods."
