    Using Cut, Copy & Paste in Windows Explorer vs. PDM

    February 28, 2019

    You’re probably very familiar with the functions used to move and/or duplicate information within Windows Explorer named cut, copy and paste. These commands are summoned by the default right mouse button (RMB), but, more commonly are called upon through the use of keyboard shortcuts to carry out these commands.

    Managing Heat in Modern Electronic Devices (Part 2)

    February 25, 2019

    In part one of this series, we evaluated how heat accumulation on a circuit board can lead to components shorting out and causing product performance issues. In this follow-up article and video, we're going to explore another important consideration when designing connected devices - battery life.

    From the latest smartphone release to the driving range in electric vehicles, battery efficiency and performance is often a deciding factor in consumer purchasing decisions.

    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.

    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.

    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.
