3D Solutions Spotlight

Seamlessly hand off quality control and design data with SOLIDWORKS Inspection and MBD

The wave of the future is electronic drawings that include Product Material Information (PMI) for part specifications; use the same electronic document for your Quality Control as well. Join us for an in-depth explanation of SOLIDWORKS Model Based Definition (MBD) and SOLIDWORKS Inspection to uncover the uses for 3D PDF in both manufacturing and QC. Get the scoop on using MBD to streamline production, reduce errors, and help with compiling with industry standards. Learn how simple and intuitive SOLIDWORKS Inspection is - see how it reduces the time needed to create inspection documentation by up to 90%. Register today to see this webinar and learn all the useful tips from our Technical Communications expert, Scott Woods.

Technical Communications - A new approach to SOLIDWORKS Technical Documentation

2017/02/10: 3D Solutions Spotlight - Assembly manuals, shop floor drawings, parts list, or high-end renderings are all time-consuming to create. Have you ever had to make adjustments to these after a model has been changed? - what a headache. SOLIWORKS Composer takes this stress away from you; learn how to streamline updating your deliverables, improve efficiency thorough associativity to the model, and see how easy it is to communicate through deliverables. Improving efficiency is simply a matter of using the right tool for the job. Join our Product Manager, Scott Woods, for the useful tips and tricks of SOLIDWORKS Composer.

3D Solutions Spotlight - CAMWorks - Intro to Assembly: Nesting and 2.5 Axis Machining

When designing assemblies, if multiple parts can be machined together in one operation, it saves time and effort – but it can be challenging to manually bring parts together in a machining environment to generate toolpaths. The Nesting solutions available with CAMWorks offer a seamless process to lay out individual parts for machining as efficiently as possible, and then generate toolpaths for 2.5 axis machining with ease. CAMWorks is the most integrated CAM solution available for SOLIDWORKS, so changes to part components will propagate through to the nested file, and toolpaths will update on demand. Join us to learn more about the seamless art-to-part process using SOLIDWORKS, CAMWorks and NestingWorks, using the example of a fixed-wing drone.

3D Solutions Spotlight - SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD Technology Preview: 3D Interconnect

Still in Beta testing and scheduled for full release in 2017, 3D Interconnect allows you to open proprietary 3D CAD data in SOLIDWORKS and retain associativity to the original file. You can insert proprietary CAD data directly into a SOLIDWORKS assembly without having to convert it to a SOLIDWORKS file and all downstream operations and features created in SOLIDWORKS update if the referenced file is updated. Supported formats include Creo®, CATIA® V5, Solid Edge®, NX, and Autodesk Inventor®. The good news is you can try it now in SOLIDWORKS 2017. Join us to see how you can work seamlessly with anyone, and incorporate design changes dramatically faster.
