Webinar Wednesday 10/25/2017: Typically when we think about a structural analysis, we consider the effects of our model undergoing some type of load or pressure. What about the structural integrity of our models due to temperature? Join this webinar to learn about the different thermal conditions that can be applied to multiple study types in the SOLIDWORKS Simulation suite. Whether you only have capabilities to run linear static studies or have the full suite of analysis tools, we can show you how to easily apply the thermal load on your structural analysis. -- Presented by Silvio Perez
Learn about what's new in Technical Communications in SOLIDWORKS 2018. Hawk Ridge Systems Product Manager, Scott Woods, will review all of the major updates, including his top picks. In this webinar, he will highlight: SOLIDWORKS Composer's Animation Library Workshop, Visualize's Stereoscopic Cameras, Inspection's ExtractionXpert, and MBD's new 3D PMI Compare tools. If you haven't seen the new options in Technical Communications in a while, this is a can't miss webinar. The choices have changed and are more relevant and cost-effective than ever before.
SOLIDWORKS 2018 introduces a new integrated CAM package, SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional, that can be purchased as an additional product from SOLIDWORKS. This package allows you to program parts for CNC manufacturing including a wide range of milling and turning operations, high-speed material removal to speed up production on the shop floor and fixture avoidance to prevent costly machine crashes.
Are you struggling with revision control or engineering change order (ECO) management processes? Does collaborating via a shared network drive create reference problems, overwritten files or require frequent Pack-and-Go routines? With SOLIDWORKS PDM, many of your daily data management tasks can be automated, allowing you to get back to focusing on your designs instead of file management. In this webinar, we'll show you: -How SOLIDWORKS PDM can improve your revision control and ECO processes -How to save valuable engineering time and improve the tracking of your design changes. Presented by Tyler Smith
One of the most useful tools embedded inside SOLIDWORKS 2018 is the Pack and Go. It works great for file management and making sure your assemblies and drawings keep their references if you need to make a copy and send them out to another user for review. Presented by Ricky Huynh
With SOLIDWORKS CAM, you will be able to enhance your manufacturing process by capturing company standards, speed up quoting and test manufacturability of a design earlier in the process. By using rules based machining, your company can automatically apply standard strategies to determine how long it will take to make a part and if it could easily be machined. This automation will allow you make decisions faster and with more confidence. But best of all, SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard is available in ALL levels of SOLIDWORKS software! -- Presented by Tim Fulton and Holly Cheek Video by Amy Surprenant
The new SOLIDWORKS PDM 2018 is packed with enhancements, but one of the most interesting is the revision table integration. Gone are the days of workarounds to both update the revision table in SolidWorks and to limit the amount of rows on that Revision table. Presented by David Lefebvre
SOLIDWORKS, like most software, sometimes encounters warnings, errors or bugs while it's running. In this webinar, Kevin Chow, Technical Support Engineer, will show you different tips, tricks and fixes that are most recommended by our dedicated Tech Support Team at Hawk Ridge Systems. Learn how to optimize performance, manage files and work with corrupt files. Get our recommended system settings and admin tips based on user needs. Join us to find out about common issues and how to resolve them to optimize your SOLIDWORKS user experience.
The Advanced Hole command made its debut in SOLIDWORKS 2017, allowing users to create complex multi-step holes in a single feature. Despite already being an impressive time saver in the design process, the command has seen significant improvements this year. New in SOLIDWORKS 2018, callouts can now be added to Advanced Holes with minimal effort. In this article, we’ll investigate how to add these annotations to an existing model. Presented by Jacob Ames
BOMs in SOLIDWORKS are generated and maintained in several ways. From SOLIDWORKS Drawings to Excel spreadsheets, we'll look at some new ways XBOM can work with your SOLIDWORKS BOM data, regardless of how you generate it. Join Chris Cook, HawkWare Product Manager, to see how XBOM can enhance your BOM management experience by leveraging SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional.
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.

Since the implementation of Mouse Gestures in SOLIDWORKS 2010, getting to the right tools has never been faster. In SOLIDWORKS 2018, Mouse Gestures return with a streamlined design and an even more interactive way to choose which tools appear in the Mouse Gesture Wheel. Just like in SOLIDWORKS 2017, the same method is used to access and customize Mouse Gestures. Presented by Enoc Hernandez
