    Hand Sanitizer for Your Data - Keeping it Clean

    August 30, 2021

    SOLIDWORKS PDM is awesome for storing your files and making sure that everyone follows the rules to get products into the customer’s hand. In SOLIDWORKS PDM, you can locate files by searching for them using the information stored in the database. Even with this searching ability, some companies prefer to have folders to organize their files. So, what can you do to keep your vault clean? SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional provides the right tools to help you organize your vault. Let's take a look as I’ll run through a couple of them right now.

    5 Advantages of 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS over Online Licensing

    August 24, 2021

    Last month, SOLIDWORKS announced the phasing out of online licensing. SOLIDWORKS 2022 will not offer this licensing methodology, and it will stop working for prior versions in February of 2022. However, this change does not mean that the benefits of using SOLIDWORKS anywhere have to be abandoned! We have a solution to this with 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS.

    New Automotive Mounting Brackets in Less Than a Day

    August 20, 2021

    The goal for this project was to create a set of 3D printed mounting brackets that I wanted to bolt to the factory mounting locations at the front valance of my Toyota MR2. The original lower front spoiler on the car was cracked and in very poor shape. To replace this part would be costly and time-consuming, and because of that, I figured why not try and create my own? Let's take a look at the steps I took to create a prototype wind spitter using 3D scanning, SOLIDWORKS and 3D printing.

    SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation - Should I Buy, Outsource or Both?

    August 18, 2021

    SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is an extremely powerful tool. It puts the power of Computations Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in the hands of the designers and engineers who are responsible for developing products and components, allowing them to test their product’s fluid flow and thermal performance early in the design phase. Changes made here are far less costly than changes made after the prototype or final product is produced.

    If you are reading this, then it is likely that you are considering adding Flow Simulation to your design tools. It is not an insignificant investment, so you want to make sure it’s the right fit for you and your organization. I want to provide some guidance to help you make that decision.

    High-Precision, No Problem - A Look at Desktop 3D Scanning

    August 17, 2021

    The need for 3D scanning has been growing in recent years across many different industries, especially when it comes to reverse engineering and 3D printing. As a Project Engineer with the TriMech Project Engineering Group, I have the privilege of working with customers who come to us needing a variety of 3D scanning services in a variety of new and unique applications.

    This exposure provides me with the ability to work with several different scanner technologies - from long-range large-object scanners to small high-precision scanners capable of capturing fine detail. In this article, I'm going to look at one of these scanning technologies that our group has found to be a perfect fit for high-precision applications: the Artec Micro.

    How to Leverage Industry 4.0: Big Data

    August 16, 2021

    Big data is the foundation of Industry 4.0 that enables factories and businesses to compete globally. In this global competition, big data could be thought of as the literal field in which we all play. It’s the grass in the field, the ice on the rink, the hardwood on the court. It’s the foundation. So, if you are looking to transform your business, big data is a great place to start!
