Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2019: Interference Detection for Multi-Body Parts Modeling

February 1, 2019

SOLIDWORKS 2019 offers some incredible features. Today we'll go over one of the most important tools for avoiding potential manufacturing defects and mishaps: the interference detection tool. Until now, this tool was only available for Assemblies. This is great for most modeling workflows because it helped show potential collisions or interference in complicated assemblies, but it was also an important tool for multi-body parts and thanks to the 2019 upgrade we can now handle this.

5 Best SOLIDWORKS Tricks You Wish You Knew

January 21, 2019

This time of year is known for award shows, so we thought we’d jump into the mix and award the best TriMech Video Tech Tips for 2018. We had 52 amazing nominees, consisting of every Video Tech Tip we sent out in 2018. It’s a competitive field since these are published every week and each one was surely honored to be selected, produced and distributed for everyone to learn from. Voting was done by our TriMech Application Engineers with the criteria focused around which videos had the biggest impact on users. After we tallied all the votes we had our final top five Video Tech Tips!

Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2019: 3D Textures

January 11, 2019

One of the most exciting new features of SOLIDWORKS 2019 is the addition of 3D textures. This new feature allows you to add complex and intricate geometry to your 3D CAD models in a few simple steps. 3D textures can add repeating geometric features to models in one simple step, such as dimples, knurls or textured patterns.

Faster Results with Boundary Conditions

January 7, 2019

Symmetry and periodic boundary conditions in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation are used to reduce the size of the flow problem, thereby reducing analysis run time. Although these two computational domain boundary conditions are set up by editing the default computational domain, they both are very different.

Database Server Replication with PDM Professional

December 31, 2018

With SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional 2017, a database server replication feature was introduced. To fully understand the benefits of this addition and why it is so significant, it’s imperative to have basic knowledge of the PDM server infrastructure and the “replication” concept. Will will explore all of these elements in this blog.

Migrating from Vault (Autodesk PLM) to SOLIDWORKS

December 28, 2018

TriMech has developed a 12-phased approach to migrating data from one system to another. Typically, with PLM to PDM, we start off with a detailed analysis of the database. Then, we move on to the definition of what you are looking to do with your data. The complexity comes with all the features of a PLM system that a PDM system inherently does not have. Items, for instance, are records in the systems that may have a file, many files or no file associated with it. These have to be converted to a file-based system.  There are several other types of PLM features that will need to be addressed.
