    STEM Day 2020: Helping the Next Generation Figure it Out

    November 6, 2020

    On my first day as an engineering student at Auburn University, I went to the engineering department head to ask a question about my schedule. Dr. B handed me a piece of paper, looked me in the eye and said, “Here is a list of every class you need to graduate. You’re an engineer, figure it out and don’t ever come to ask me about your schedule again.” Sounds harsh right? It was some of the best advice I ever received. It reminded me that there are no shortcuts and that all learning and achievement in life requires a bit of struggle. That advice has served me well throughout my life and career. When you run into a challenge, you have to think, get creative and “Figure it Out,” as Dr. B said.

    Applying Color Textures Using the .3MF File Format

    September 15, 2020

    During the product development lifecycle, an industrial designer will create multiple versions of a product in various finishes, textures and colors. Using the new .3MF file format, we can apply a texture in a CAD program, such as SOLIDWORKS, and save the file in a format that retains that texture and can be used for 3D printing.

    How To Troubleshoot an Assembly in SOLIDWORKS That Won't Open

    August 21, 2020

    According to Murphy's Law, file corruption will occur shortly before a deadline. Nobody wants to redo work they've already done with the clock bearing down on them. Regardless of what caused a file to become corrupt (random network glitches, bad geometry imported from other CAD formats, power fluctuations, improper shutdowns, sunspots, ancient curses) SOLIDWORKS provides some powerful tools to help us find and fix problems. If an assembly won't open the problem is most likely an individual component of that assembly. To fix it, first we must figure out which one it is. Or just let SOLIDWORKS do it for you!

    DELMIAWORKS: ERP Born on the Shop Floor

    August 3, 2020

    There are many behind the scenes tools that make a company become and continue to be successful. Much like the more visible people and obvious products, a software running backstage is extremely important and can have significant impacts on a company’s bottom line at best, and its livelihood at worse. If you’re a manufacturing company or one which provides supply chain services, then you have a system in place to serve as the backbone of your business that connects all the various business units. But instead of separate disconnected systems, today’s best in class companies opt for one system that connects all the separate business units, DELMIAWORKS.
