    The Top SOLIDWORKS Products for Manufacturing

    July 16, 2019

    With so many software options out there, it’s hard to know which combination is right for your custom manufacturing needs. With the SOLIDWORKS family of integrated products we’re spoiled for choice, but that doesn’t make understanding all the options any easier to someone looking at it for the first time. We’ve taken a look at all the options and put together a summary of what we think is the “ideal” manufacturing bundle. In this blog post, we’ll go over all the top-level benefits for each product and what you’ll be taking with you.

    Shop Collaboration and Communication in the Modern Age

    June 10, 2019

    Manufacturing technology seems to catch on much slower than other technological leaps; it’s 2019 and I still train students every month coming from 2D drafting into the 3D world! Is this because of the companies, the designers, the machinists or none of these? There is a huge difference in how a job shop, or even a large-scale production facility, work versus how we think. We’re going to take a look at this much too common disconnect and what options are out there to improve shop communication and efficiency.

    Concept to Completion with SOLIDWORKS Manufacturing Tools

    June 7, 2019

    SOLIDWORKS is not just a CAD application. The integrated add-ins and supporting applications make it a complete engineering solution. I recently took advantage of these tools to complete a project that has been at the back of my mind for some time. It was a great opportunity to show how to use the SOLIDWORKS integrated platform from design all the way through the manufacturing and post-manufacturing process.

    On-Demand Webinar: Machining Within SOLIDWORKS

    February 1, 2018

    SOLIDWORKS CAM was introduced as part of the design to manufacturing solution at SOLIDWORKS World last year and is powered by CAMWorks. This knowledge-based technology gives users the ability to evaluate designs earlier in the process which helps avoid unexpected costs and delays to finishing products on time. It is available in both Standard and Professional versions. Stream our webinar below to learn more!
