Webinar Wednesday: Maximize Collaboration in PDM Professional with HAWKWARE TEAMWorks Professional

As with many collaboration tools, notifications are helpful, but they are not a substitute for interactive dialog between team members. Promoting and facilitating interaction between Engineering, Manufacturing, Purchasing and Quality departments improves the entire team’s understanding of the design, manufacturing processes and quality requirements critical to success. Learn how HawkWare’s TEAMWorks Professional can help you take your collaboration efforts to new level of productivity.

Wednesday, August 30th - 11:00am

Webinar Wednesday: Manage Non-CAD Documents in SOLIDWORKS PDM

SOLIDWORKS PDM is a powerful tool for managing your CAD data, but how does it handle other types of documents like Engineering Change Orders (ECOs), specifications, images, and more? The same powerful tools for managing CAD files via workflows, revisions and file history can be used for your non-CAD documents as well. Did you know that you can create links from your CAD model to the associated documents and keep BOMs updated in SOLIDWORKS PDM? Learn how SOLIDWORKS PDM can help you to manage your full product design cycle from CAD models to ECOs and BOMs.

Webinar Wednesday 08/09/2017 - Post processing is a critical part of any CAM system, and one that many CAM users don’t know how to manipulate effectively. Join our CAMWorks Technical Expert, Daniel Lyon, for an in-depth look at how you can customize your post processor to optimize machining performance and prevent costly mistakes and rework. You will learn how to create your own CAMWorks post processor using the Universal Post Generator and EC Editor and witness how the different post files interact with each other. Sign up for the webinar to dive under-the-covers of CAMWorks Post-processing and take control of your machining. -- Presented by Daniel Lyon
