We introduced you to Altair Inspire Form and walked you through some of the steps of what you can do with the software in a previous blog. But, surprise! That's not all it's capable of! Find out how to load, prepare and set up models to perform formability, flatten and fit blank and nest blank tests.

One of the most exciting new features of SOLIDWORKS 2019 is the addition of 3D textures. This new feature allows you to add complex and intricate geometry to your 3D CAD models in a few simple steps. 3D textures can add repeating geometric features to models in one simple step, such as dimples, knurls or textured patterns.
MakerBot Method is MakerBot's newest addition to their 3D printer portfolio. A pioneer in the professional segment category built with improved, patented industrial technologies from Stratasys®, combined with MakerBot's industry-leading accessibility and smart workflow features. Method will allow organizations to adopt 3D printing at a larger scale. Industrial designers and mechanical engineers will now be able to accelerate their innovation process and become more agile. Method is designed for professionals who need immediate access to a 3D printer in order to speed up their design cycles.

We eat, sleep, breath and dream 3D printers. We're also well aware that we're not the norm and some people are just starting to learn about our obsession. As the printers gain popularity and start getting talked about more and more, we've noticed that there are a few misconceptions about the technology. Rather than turning a blind eye, we're taking a page out of the MythBusters' playbook and setting the record straight.
Symmetry and periodic boundary conditions in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation are used to reduce the size of the flow problem, thereby reducing analysis run time. Although these two computational domain boundary conditions are set up by editing the default computational domain, they both are very different.

The release of SOLIDWORKS 2019 provides many enhancements and improvements, most of which were created in response to requests from customers like yourself. These enhancements deliver improvements to existing products as well as introduce new functionality.
Forensic teams have been documenting crime scenes with cameras for decades. They also use approximate measurement methods, such as a tape measure, that can only be performed at the crime scene. The 2D images that cameras generate, even with the highest quality, lack crucial data that only spatial relations between objects can create. These parameters can be of such critical value that they may determine whether the criminal justice system ends up prosecuting an innocent person and vindicating the offender. 3D scanners may be just what they need to change the outcome.
With SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional 2017, a database server replication feature was introduced. To fully understand the benefits of this addition and why it is so significant, it’s imperative to have basic knowledge of the PDM server infrastructure and the “replication” concept. Will will explore all of these elements in this blog.
