Webinar Webinar Wednesday: SOLIDWORKS Inspection - Pro Tips and Tricks to begin automating your FAI Reports and QC processes.

Join us for an in-depth presentation on SOLIDWORKS Inspection. Learn the top tips and tricks that will change how you look at your inspection process. There are many enhancement to Inspection in SOLIDWORKS 2017, including improved workflows, locking balloons, exporting projects, and manually adding and removing characteristics. We will also review pro stand-alone capabilities such as tables, BOMs, and template modification. Learn all the pro tips to get the most from SOLIDWORKS Inspection.

Wednesday, April 26th - 11:00am

Webinar Webinar Wednesday: What’s New in SOLIDWORKS 2017 – More Powerful Modeling Tools

SOLIDWORKS 2017 delivers new and enhanced modeling tools with refined and improved technology to help you accelerate your design process. In addition to sketch enhancements such as Shaded Sketch Contours, we’ll be reviewing the new Advanced Hole feature for constructing stepped holes faster with one operation. This new feature eliminates the need for complex revolve cuts or multiple features and new, advanced options for the Chamfer/Fillet tool. It’s now much easier and faster to create 3D geometry on any surface with major improvements to the Wrap feature and Offset on Surface tool.

Are you struggling with revision control or engineering change management processes? Does sharing files via a shared network drive create reference problems, overwritten files or require frequent Pack-and-Go routines? With SOLIDWORKS PDM (Product Data Management) many of your daily data management tasks can be automated to get you back to focusing on design rather than file management. In this webinar we'll introduce SOLIDWORKS PDM and how it can improve your engineering processes and save you valuable engineering time as well as improve the quality and traceability of your designs.
