What if you, your team and your clients had instant access to all aspects of your product in a single location? How about having an environment where everyone could be included in brainstorming sessions, provide and receive constructive criticism, effectively manage people and resources and create and validate innovative products? What if you could offer more than just a conference call and a SharePoint site so that no one was ever left out, whether they’re at their desk or in the field? Enabling internal and external users to come together in real-time for the product’s entire life cycle is probably the most significant step in resolving breaks in communication and this is possible by leveraging cloud technology.

“This is how we’ve always done it.”
Your current process might have helped define your success years ago, but is it honestly still relevant in today’s global and more technology-empowered competitive landscape? How much time and effort could you save by taking a fresh look at something as simple as communication between your product development teams? A lot, as it turns out!

It has been described as the holy grail of spline continuity. Maybe that’s an overstatement, but many designers have been waiting a very long time for the ability to add G3 continuity to line segments. Now with SOLIDWORKS 2020, you can create accurate Class-A surfaces with the G3 connection. A G3 connection describes the intersection of two curves. The G3 relation at this point forms the smoothest transition between the line segments; it’s a must-have for anyone creating class-A surfaces..
FeatureWorks is a SOLIDWORKS Standard, Professional and Premium add-on that allows engineers and designers to directly interact with and edit imported part data in a SOLIDWORKS part file. Imported models, or “dumb solids”, become useable parts within the SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD environment.

Detailing mode for drawings is one of the most anticipated and useful enhancements in SOLIDWORKS 2020. Think of it as a large design review, but instead of being for assemblies, it’s for drawings. It’s a much-needed performance boost to 2D drawings. Now with SOLIDWORKS 2020, you can take your drawing performance to the next level with detailing mode, which enables you to open massive drawings in seconds regardless of their size and complexity. The model does not get loaded, but the drawing views are intact, so there is no loss of detail. In this blog article, we take a look at this top feature in SOLIDWORKS 2020.

Expanding your SOLIDWORKS knowledge to optimize your skills and your resume can be a daunting task when looking at the many certification types. The Certified SOLIDWORKS Expert (CSWE) certification is considered an industry benchmark for 3D design and is a strong addition to your portfolio of SOLIDWORKS knowledge. There are two variations that allow you to specialize in a specific area. We will cover each one, as well as the prerequisites that must be completed before taking the CSWE.

The Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional (CSWP) certification is considered an industry benchmark for 3D design and is one of the first steps in building your portfolio of SOLIDWORKS knowledge. It is also a pre-requisite to more advanced certifications. There are four variations that allow you to specialize in a specific area. We will cover each one, as well as the basic courses recommended by SOLIDWORKS that should be completed before taking the CSWP.

I have been a SOLIDWORKS user for about six years, using it mostly for CAD, but sometimes for running my designs through structural simulation analysis. The CAD software I used prior to SOLIDWORKS was slower and this process took extra time to set up. I had to export and import .STEP files between different software, and even though it worked in the end, it seemed like running simulations took forever. My experience since changing to SOLIDWORKS Simulation has been very different. In this blog article, I show you how I used SOLIDWORKS Simulation to run a simple static study.
