Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2019: Structure System

February 22, 2019

It's time to reveal our sixth favorite feature in SOLIDWORKS 2019: the structure system tool. Weldments are a key feature of many designs and SOLIDWORKS has long been an innovator in providing tools to create weldments. The structure system tool is a brand-new way to create weldments. To see it in action be sure to check out the video below where it’s used to create a large support structure for a massive telescope.

SOLIDWORKS World 2019: Partner Pavilion

February 19, 2019

There are many aspects of SOLIDWORKS World that we look forward to every year, but one that never fails to be increasingly interesting is the Partner Pavilion. Here we get to explore the largest gathering of SOLIDWORKS Solution Partners showcasing their new technology, tools, applications and services. It also allows us to network with partners, resellers and other users while getting to try out new technology.

Understanding CAMWorks Options for SOLIDWORKS

February 18, 2019

I have been a CAM geek for most of my life. You can imagine my excitement when SOLIDWORKS announced SOLIDWORKS CAM with the 2018 release. At the same time TriMech became an official CAMWorks reseller so that in addition to the SOLIDWORKS CAM products, we could offer all the additional tool options by the same company that powers SOLIDWORKS CAM suite. As a result, TriMech has a solution for almost any CAM need, but being spoiled with so many choices can make it hard to know where to start. That’s what we’re going to touch on here.

An Introduction to SOLIDWORKS xDesign

February 14, 2019

SOLIDWORKS xDesign is a new way of looking at CAD design. It is one of the cloud-based CAD applications that are part of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Just by being part of the platform allows this software to do some pretty interesting things that you can’t do with traditional SOLIDWORKS alone.

SOLIDWORKS World 2019: Day 4 Recap

February 14, 2019

We've had an amazing time at SOLIDWORKS World 2019 and in the blink of an eye it was over! A look back on the main SOLIDWORKS event two nights ago brought back memories of lots of fun and lots of people. Gilley’s Dallas welcomed the SOLIDWORKS Community with open arms. We saw everything from trivia games to beer pong (Texas style with garbage cans), and armadillo races. Thanks, Gilley’s for a wonderful night.

SOLIDWORKS World 2019: Day 3 Recap

February 13, 2019

The third day of SOLIDWORKS World 2019 began with a unique approach to the general session. Unlike the traditional general sessions where every attendee gathers to watch the speakers on the main stage, day three of SOLIDWORKS World 2019 began with three concurrent general sessions, allowing participants to dive into the topic of their choice. Here’s a brief description of the three fascinating general sessions made available to attendees.

SOLIDWORKS World 2019: Day 2 Recap

February 12, 2019

Another overcast and drizzling day couldn’t slow the excitement of the second day of SOLIDWORKS World for the clients. Walking into the general session was like walking into a rock arena, waiting for the band to strike the first note. We were met with some big announcements from Gian Paolo, Dassault Systemes CEO, and even a little rock music.

Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2019: Measure Anywhere

February 8, 2019

Included in the SOLIDWORKS 2019 launch is the measure anywhere feature. This means you no longer have to exit a command before you can take measurements. Such seemingly small improvement is a big favorite among TriMech Application Engineers and considered a top reason to upgrade to SOLIDWORKS 2019.

What is 3DEXPERIENCE?

February 7, 2019

You may have been seeing a compass icon in SOLIDWORKS videos, web pages and even in some of your design applications and wondering what it is or what it’s there for. Well, that compass represents the central navigation of the 3DEXPERIENCE “business experience” platform. In this blog, we are going to explore what that means and how SOLIDWORKS users can benefit from knowing how to use it.

Managing Heat in Modern Electronic Devices (Part 1)

February 4, 2019

“We have decided to halt production and sales of the [Modern Electronic Device] in order to consider our consumers’ safety first and foremost.”-Samsung.

After making this statement, Samsung was forced to recall 2.5 million devices already shipped or in consumers' hands. That is a position no company wants to be in, but the reality is that more and more companies, in order to compete, must keep up with the technological advances. Businesses and consumers are demanding more from the electronic devices they purchase.

In this two-part video series, we’ll demonstrate how simple validation tests can ensure your design is handling the thermal load properly and if not, how to make the necessary changes to dissipate heat and avoid critical temperatures, field failures and thermal runaway.
