Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2019: Better BOMs

March 29, 2019

SOLIDWORKS 2019 is full of countless enhancements for parts, assemblies and drawings. One of the biggest enhancements to drawings in this release was an improvement to Bills of Materials (BOMs). BOMs have grown to ubiquity over the years as they are used by almost every designer for nearly every single assembly.

Top 5 Apps Included in 3DEXPERIENCE

March 25, 2019

At its core, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a collection of cloud-based software applications for 3D design, analysis, simulation and communication. It allows team members to be in the same environment looking at the same data and the same files in order to make changes and comments in real time. Just like with a smart phone, there are different applications available for the platform to customize the experience for your specific project needs. And since the platform is cloud-based, all of what we are about to talk about is accessible through a web browser, not a dedicated computer.

Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2019: Touch Screen

March 15, 2019

SOLIDWORKS 2019 builds upon the ground-breaking touch modeling innovations introduced last year in SOLIDWORKS 2018 and offers even more enhancements for working on touch-enabled devices. There’s now a wealth of innovative new productivity enhancement that lets you take advantage of the latest cutting-edge hardware technology. 3D CAD modeling on a touch screen PC such as a Microsoft Surface or a Windows 10 PC is now even better. Currently, more entity types are supported when sketching with a pen or stylus, dimensions can be created by writing directly on screen and the intuitive touch-optimized environment supports even more everyday design workflows.

Managing Heat in Modern Electronic Devices (Part 2)

February 25, 2019

In part one of this series, we evaluated how heat accumulation on a circuit board can lead to components shorting out and causing product performance issues. In this follow-up article and video, we're going to explore another important consideration when designing connected devices - battery life.

From the latest smartphone release to the driving range in electric vehicles, battery efficiency and performance is often a deciding factor in consumer purchasing decisions.

Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2019: Structure System

February 22, 2019

It's time to reveal our sixth favorite feature in SOLIDWORKS 2019: the structure system tool. Weldments are a key feature of many designs and SOLIDWORKS has long been an innovator in providing tools to create weldments. The structure system tool is a brand-new way to create weldments. To see it in action be sure to check out the video below where it’s used to create a large support structure for a massive telescope.

How to Make Your PLA and ABS Filaments Last Longer

February 21, 2019

PLA and ABS material filaments are very popular choices for 3D printing. They are both thermoplastics, are used in a wide range of printer models and have an ideal price range, which makes them great options for printing 3D projects. To get the best results you need not only to take care of your printer, but also remember to store your materials properly.
