Webinar Wednesday 9/20/2017 - If you do complex analysis and find yourself pushing the capabilities in SOLIDWORKS Simulation, then it may be time to consider SIMULIA Abaqus. SIMULIA Abaqus is a tool best suited for intricate analysis with advanced physics. In this webinar, Ryan Magruder, Analysis Services Engineer, will demonstrate several workflows that allow a current user of SOLIDWORKS Simulation to quickly and easily make the transition to Abaqus. By using the SOLIDWORKS Associative Interface, Ryan will demonstrate how to export your existing Simulation studies to Abaqus. You’ll gain valuable insights into which analysis tool is best suited for your needs.
Webinar Wednesday 9/13/2017: SOLIDWORKS Composer is a powerful tool for utilizing 3D CAD assets for documentation, animation and other visual deliverables. Getting off to the right start is critical for streamlined operations and seamless project updating. Join Applications Engineer, John Slipec, for our fourth installment of the Composer Core Concepts Series. In this webinar, John will cover best practices and pro-tips for creating, using and reusing 2D authoring elements such as annotations, arrows, exploded lines and images. These simple, yet powerful 2D elements can be used numerous times and can provide assistance to your 3D designs, clearly illustrating every step of the documentation. You will also learn how to leverage your 2D authoring elements to best tell your story in 3D.
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. Sign up for the webinar to see the full potential of SOLIDWORKS PDM at work.
Many industries require a wide range of sheet metal parts for structural applications or housing their designs. In this webinar, you'll learn from Gabe Crisologo, Applications Engineer, how to quickly and cost-effectively create sheet metal part and assembly designs using SOLIDWORKS. Join us to see how you can design sheet metal models and input your own bend radius, thickness and K-factor. Learn how you can design around a group of parts in an assembly and automatically estimate sheet metal manufacturing costs as you design. When we’re finished, we will automatically flatten the 3D sheet metal part to generate flat patterns that include bend compensation for manufacturing. This webinar will show you how SOLIDWORKS can accelerate your sheet metal design process, saving time and development costs, and increasing productivity.
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. See how you can optimize your departmental communications around your valuable IP managed in SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional.
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
With more and more companies turning to customization to gain market share, you need to be able to turn around proposals quickly, and design and manufacture efficiently, while maintaining a healthy profit. DriveWorks uses simple and straightforward rules and decision logic to easily capture and reuse all your design, manufacturing and cost estimation knowledge to automate your business. Learn how your designers can become more efficient by adding design rules to automate creation of 3D CAD models, and generate Bills of Materials for manufacturing, leaving more time to spend on improving product quality and developing new products.
SOLIDWORKS PCB is a powerful end-to-end printed circuit board design tool, built on 30 years of PCB design software technology from Altium. In this webinar, we’ll take a circuit board project from start to finish, by building a schematic, generating and adjusting the PCB layout, and producing all the necessary outputs for manufacturing and assembly. Register for our webinar, and join our SOLIDWORKS PCB Product Manager, Scott Davis, to see the power of SOLIDWORKS PCB, and learn how it can shorten the design cycle for electronic assemblies.
Do you currently run linear static studies and have you ever asked whether it is necessary to run a non-linear study? Are you ready to run a non-linear study but not sure what additional capabilities you get with that study type? Join this webinar for a deeper look at non-linear analysis scenarios and learn how SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium and SIMULIA Abaqus can help better simulate real life scenarios to attain more realistic and accurate results.
