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!
