    The Bookmark Editor is best correlated to File Explorer for anyone that’s used a PC environment for the last 20 years, which is common amongst us SOLIDWORKS users of many years. Having visited many clients, I have seen grand, complex folder paths with specific files choreographed to populate unique directories. One would browse to a particular folder based on a set structure for release of various products. With a well-designed structure, finding a file usually is very quick.

    How to choose the right electrical design software package

    June 22, 2022

    Electrical schematic design tools fill a vital niche in the engineering environment. Falling somewhere between pure electrical and mechanical design, they allow engineers to communicate crucial system-level wiring specifications to technicians, vendors and other downstream project stakeholders. Recognizing the importance of this facet of production, SOLIDWORKS provides several solutions to allow multidisciplinary teams to work together to achieve their design goals and milestones efficiently. Choosing the right tool for your business comes down to a few specific factors we’ll explore in this blog.

    What is PolyJet technology and how does it work?

    June 21, 2022

    Do you need the ability to create highly accurate full color parts with multiple shore values and nearly invisible layer lines? A PolyJet 3D printer might be the solution. PolyJet machines have a wide selection of available materials including vibrant colors, ultra clears, flexible, and biocompatibility. Materials can also be mixed into digital materials. Digital materials are a mixture or blend of two or more base materials to create a material with its own unique properties. If you want to learn more about printing in full color, you can check out this blog post: Printing Colors: PolyJet.

    Staffing Team Facilitates Growth Through Locating Niche Talent

    June 20, 2022

    Adapting to rapid company growth is certainly not a bad problem to have, but may still create significant logistical issues. TriMech’s client, a fast-growing company specializing in thermal batteries for the defense and aerospace industry, was seeking to add an engineer to perform thermal analysis after a successful relationship with TriMech’s Project Engineering Team. Company leadership recognized the opportunity to further utilize TriMech Staffing to source technical candidates that their internal team struggled to find. Since then, TriMech has placed both contract and permanent roles for multiple positions including manufacturing, mechanical, and non-destructive testing engineers, allowing the company to drive its business goals and meet customer demands.
