    Each year, SOLIDWORKS seeks to outdo itself with hundreds of sweeping enhancements to its diverse and ever-expanding portfolio of engineering, manufacturing and design solutions. SOLIDWORKS Electrical, in particular, received quite a few significant enhancements this year, making documenting your electromechanical systems more streamlined than ever before. With this article, I wanted to highlight some of what I consider to be the most impactful updates for those considering whether it'd make sense to upgrade sooner rather than later.

    SOLIDWORKS Simulation or SIMULIA?

    November 22, 2021

    Which one do you choose, SOLIDWORKS Simulation or SIMULIA? This is quite a common question when solutions overlap with each other a little bit. But a true answer to this question arises not only from the kind of studies we are able to perform but also from what happens upstream and downstream of the design process.

    Moving from SOLIDWORKS Desktop to 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS

    November 15, 2021

    SOLIDWORKS 3DEXPERIENCE gives users the opportunity to use advanced designing and collaboration features that positively change the way we create and build. If you are currently a SOLIDWORKS desktop user and considering a move to the cloud, there are differences that you should be aware of. Below we will review some of those differences as well as take a look at the process involved when making the switch.

    Managing Local Files in SOLIDWORKS PDM

    November 3, 2021

    When working within a PDM system, it’s important to understand what a local file is and why it should be utilized rather than working strictly over a network. Many SOLIDWORKS and CAD users need a powerful data management system to organize their files to implement different workflows, maintain quality and have maximum efficiency when modeling. Rather than deal with any of these tasks manually, SOLIDWORKS PDM allows multiple users to work on a data set without stepping on each other’s toes, and it does so by being a network-based program.

    Now more than ever before, our customers are looking for flexible ways to access SOLIDWORKS online. It is not uncommon for a SOLIDWORKS user to have two or more workstations, and being able to work from different locations or on the go is key to maintaining productivity.

    Depending on what type of SOLIDWORKS license you currently own, you have different options for accessing SOLIDWORKS online. In this article, we will discuss options for network and standalone SOLIDWORKS licenses, as well as the SOLIDWORKS Connected product through the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. If you’re looking into purchasing SOLIDWORKS for the first time, you will want to consider these differences when deciding what type of license is best for you.

    Choosing Between SOLIDWORKS Standard, Professional and Premium

    October 18, 2021

    It's been over a quarter-century since SOLIDWORKS 1.0 was first released in 1995. The manual was a mere 80 pages. So many features and abilities have been added since then there are now many SOLIDWORKS manuals, each covering a different set of tools. But what exactly are these tools? A bullet point on a product matrix is not always enough information to let you know if it's a tool you need or not. So let's take a deeper dive into what Standard, Professional, and Premium offer.

    Getting Organized: Electrical Reports

    September 30, 2021

    On the road to becoming an engineer, what they don’t tell you about is how much menial labor goes into documenting and supporting an electrical system you’ve helped design. Sourcing spec sheets, entering project data cell-by-cell into Excel, and if something changes, recalling with perfect clarity the numerous places that need to be updated. It can be very easy to spend just as much time documenting a project as drafting it!
