Flow through valves, heat exchangers, and a range of other industrial processes is often the key factor in the design of any equipment or heavy machinery. This webinar shows how SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation gives any design engineer the ability to predict the changes in heat transfer, pressure drop, and other requirements at every turn- leading to a product that meets all its requirements in less time.
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.
See how XBOM for SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional can bring your BOM management team together to deliver more accurate and complete Engineering Bills of Materials. Merging, updating & editing your Engineering BOMs, regardless of the Engineering tools has never been easier.
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.
Did you know that SOLIDWORKS Plastics can simulate a kind of material that isn't actually… plastic? Thermoset polymers include rubbers, silicones, and epoxies- each of which make critical parts in industries from medical devices to industrial equipment. See how SOLIDWORKS Plastics not only simulates the filling process of these materials, but part curing and other properties that are key to a making quality product.
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.
In this session we'll focus on SOLIDWORKS Professional and what it adds to the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Standard to increase design productivity. with file management tools, advanced photorealistic rendering, automated cost estimation, eDrawings® Professional collaboration capabilities, automated design and drawing checking, and a sophisticated components and parts library. We’ll show you what’s new in 2017 for the Professional package as well as an overview of the additional tools you’ll get.
This presentation will cover the CAMWorks turning module, as well as the Mill-Turn module and show how CAMWorks feature recognition and Knowledge-Based Machining applies across a wide range of machining processes. We will show how to implement the machine simulation and G-Code verification for multi-task machining, and we'll showcase the Wire-EDM programming capabilities available also.
In the world of mechanical engineering, nearly everything moves. This means that the performance of a product is dependent on how it responds to vibration, it's resiliency to damage from drop or impact, and it's likelihood to fail over time due to fatigue.
With SOLIDWORKS announcing that Workgroup PDM will no longer be supported after SOLIDWORKS 2017, many Workgroup users are making the move to SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard or Professional. These new tools allow organizations to take advantage of modern database technology and improve performance, but as with any change, there can be some challenges in learning a new interface, and new data management concepts. Since SOLIDWORKS PDM is built on an intuitive Windows Explorer interface, learning the new software can..
Learn how you can easily create line/schematic diagrams, populate Bill of Materials (BOMs) and Wire Lists with minimal clicks. We’ll also go over automating 3D routing of wires and cables in SOLIDWORKS with full, bi-directional real-time linking between 2D schematic and 3D model data.
By default, the structural members of a weldment part are trimmed according to the order in which groups are created, limiting the options that are available for corner treatment. In this article, we explore how to adjust the trim order of separate groups in order to make them trim simultaneously, allowing for multi-member mitered corners.
Many users are unaware that the standard circular detail view sketch can be overridden with any other type of sketch geometry in order to capture only the desired information in a detail view. This article covers how to override the circular detail profile and ensure that the display matches appropriately.
With SOLIDWORKS Composer it’s easy to take your assembly and operation instructions to the next level, setting yourself apart from the competition and eliminating human error when it comes to deciphering instructional documentation. In this video we will be covering the top 5 tips and tricks anyone using Composer should know about. Learn how to use a cut plane on specific components in an assembly, add items to your 2D library, apply custom drawing templates, use the copy transformation tool to eliminate rework, and setting up selection groups to work like SOLIDWORKS assemblies.
