Are you currently using Workgroup PDM to control and manage your SOLIDWORKS data? Did you know that SOLIDWORKS 2017 is the last release to include Workgroup PDM? Are you wondering how to move that data to SQL database-driven SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard or Professional before SOLIDWORKS 2018 is released and Workgroup PDM is no longer available? Watch this webinar to learn how to migrate data from Workgroup PDM to a SOLIDWORKS PDM system, and how to plan your SOLIDWORKS data management strategy moving forward.

SOLIDWORKS Visualize helps organizations leverage 3D CAD data to create photorealistic marketing content. From static images to animations and immersive web content, SOLIDWORKS Visualize delivers photographical content that clearly and emotionally depicts products in the real world. PhotoView360 is built into SOLIDWORKS, and can generate great marketing images among other things. SOLIDWORKS offers two amazing redering options - now you have to decide which to use for your project. There are very easy ways to identify when one option should be used over another, and we plan to share those with you in this webinar. We’ll compare the capabilities of Visualize with the rendering and technical communication tools currently available in SOLIDWORKS. Join us for an in-depth look into photorealistic rendering options available to you.

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.

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.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation is a powerful tool for assessing the strength and performance of a design, but in many cases new users don’t know how to get started. In this session, Ryan Navarro will take you through the basics of getting started in Simulation, by presenting a sample of our SOLIDWORKS Simulation training class, available online and in our training centers.
