For over a decade, companies have tried to pin FDM technology against PolyJet technology. Whether it be the fine detail of PolyJet capabilities outweighing the lack of support needed for FDM, or that the strength of materials available in FDM is worth the additional time of printing over the PolyJet, an argument can usually be made to justify one over the other. Although some industries may always lean one way more than the other, I am here to discuss the benefits of having both technologies under the same roof.

We all have our favorites in the diverse arsenal of SOLIDWORKS sketching tools. However, for most, those favorites all shine on the CommandManager, taking the spotlight, right at the top of our screen. This spot is well deserved by most of the icons that are found here, but when it comes to sketching tools in SOLIDWORKS, there is more than meets the eye. Many powerful tools made for the sketching environment are under-utilized. In this blog, we dive into some of these tools and how they work.

It seems like 3D printers can use any material nowadays. Desktop Metal is reinventing the way engineering and manufacturing teams produce metal parts with the ability to print in metal. There are even some printers that can print chocolate, pasta and wait for it— pizza! However, most commercial 3D printers create parts in some sort of plastic. To help you choose which is right for your application, we outline some key material properties below.
Here at TriMech, we pride ourselves in providing the best technical support experience possible for our customers. No one enjoys needing outside help when they have an issue, we understand that. It's our goal to make sure that we not only solve your problem, but make it a pleasant experience while we do. That said, there are certain things you can do to make sure the troubleshooting process goes as smoothly as possible.

In part one[link to part 1] of this two-part blog, we discussed the SOLIDWORKS Rx tool and the steps for recording your problem while using the software. Using this technique to capture information often requires the issue to be repeatable. But, what if the behavior itself is inconsistent? Fortunately, we can still gather most of the information captured by SOLIDWORKS Rx, after the fact!
The SOLDIWORKS Rx tool is a feature that is automatically installed with SOLIDWORKS software. However, many users are unaware of its benefits. It easily captures video and information for troubleshooting problems and checks your systems performance. It also allows you to run tests and compare your results with other SOLIDWORKS users. In this two part blog we will dive into the SOLDIWORKS Rx tool and how to use it to help solve issues that can arise while using the software.
