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.

SOLIDWORKS World 2019 is finally here! This year, the convention is being held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX. I would like to share my experience from the first day of the conference.

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.
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.

“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.

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.

They say, "Everything's bigger in Texas," and SOLIDWORKS World 2019 is no exception! This year it kicks off on February 10th in Dallas, Texas, which means we're less than a month away and can't contain our excitement.

Our third top new feature in SOLIDWORKS 2019 is the ability to add a partial fillet and chamfer. This was the enhancement that got the most cheer from a packed auditorium when it was previewed at SOLIDWORKS World 2018 in Los Angeles, and it’s easy to see why.
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!

SOLIDWORKS 2019 offers some incredible advancements in the graphics performance. Everyday tasks like manipulating models and geometry, zoom and rotate are greatly improved in SOLIDWORKS 2019. These changes are very noticeable, especially when working with large assemblies.
Is your business growing exponentially? If so, you are probably thinking about getting more SOLIDWORKS licenses. But, did you know there's a way you could share licenses?

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.
