We’d all agree that there is an inherent complexity in trying to convey a 3D concept in 2D space and have seen that it’s possible for some information to get lost in translation while making this change. To help deal with this complexity there are powerful new productivity enhancements that make documenting your designs even faster in SOLIDWORKS 2019.

You’re probably very familiar with the functions used to move and/or duplicate information within Windows Explorer named cut, copy and paste. These commands are summoned by the default right mouse button (RMB), but, more commonly are called upon through the use of keyboard shortcuts to carry out these commands.
Have you ever 3D printed a part and it wasn't as strong as you'd hoped? Maybe before printing, you decide your part needs additional strength in one area and not another. Maybe you're going to drill a hole or put a threaded insert inside of a part and you just wanted to add strength just to those key areas. Well, now there's a tool that can do that without having to send the design back into your 3D CAD software. In this video blog, TriMech Application Engineer Ricky Shannon will walk through the new GrabCAD Print Advanced FDM toolset.

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.

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.

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.

There are many aspects of SOLIDWORKS World that we look forward to every year, but one that never fails to be increasingly interesting is the Partner Pavilion. Here we get to explore the largest gathering of SOLIDWORKS Solution Partners showcasing their new technology, tools, applications and services. It also allows us to network with partners, resellers and other users while getting to try out new technology.
I have been a CAM geek for most of my life. You can imagine my excitement when SOLIDWORKS announced SOLIDWORKS CAM with the 2018 release. At the same time TriMech became an official CAMWorks reseller so that in addition to the SOLIDWORKS CAM products, we could offer all the additional tool options by the same company that powers SOLIDWORKS CAM suite. As a result, TriMech has a solution for almost any CAM need, but being spoiled with so many choices can make it hard to know where to start. That’s what we’re going to touch on here.
Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day is celebrated on February 21st as part of National Engineer’s Week. This is one day that is devoted to fostering a growing and welcoming environment to encourage girls to pursue careers in engineering. It’s all about inspiring the great innovators, creators and thinkers of the next generation.

TriMech was named SOLIDWORKS User Group Network's Reseller of the Year as well as Top Technical Reseller in 2018! This is the third year in a row we've been honored with the User Group award which recognizes the contribution a reseller makes to SOLIDWORKS User Group Network (SWUGN) and the SOLIDWORKS community.
TriMech is very proud to have more than forty Elite Application Engineers in our company. In addition to the SOLIDWORKS User Certifications, our Engineers go through additional tests to earn their Elite Application Engineer Certification.
SOLIDWORKS xDesign is a new way of looking at CAD design. It is one of the cloud-based CAD applications that are part of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Just by being part of the platform allows this software to do some pretty interesting things that you can’t do with traditional SOLIDWORKS alone.
