This is a snippet from a recent conversation I had with my colleague Kevin Holbrook about Polygons vs. Performance. During our discussion we both learned a few things about SOLIDWORKS we didn't already know so we thought we'd share it with you:
I recently had a customer ask if SOLIDWORKS had a way to generate a model based on a photograph or image. My initial response was that we can use a Sketch Picture and trace the outline of the image to generate a sketch that can create geometry. While writing up a quick "how to" reference email for the customer, I decided I should hit the Help button to make sure I wasn't missing anything.
Manufacturing relies on tools such as jigs and fixtures to maintain product quality and production efficiency. Whether these tools are used to position parts during the assembly process, used in the quality control departments to check dimensions, or used as guides for machining; each plays an extremely important role in a company's manufacturing process.
So you, or your company, have decided to use SOLIDWORKS Electrical for your electrical design needs, but now that you have the software, you’re not sure what you will need to install it.
First things first – in order to install the software, you will need the installation media. Conveniently, everything you need to install SOLIDWORKS Electrical is packaged in the same installation media that you used to install SOLIDWORKS. You can easily download the install media by visiting the Customer Portal.
It is that time of year again, a time when all of us SOLIDWORKS enthusiasts get our hands on SOLIDWORKS 2016 to see what’s new. At SOLIDWORKS World 2015 in Phoenix, the technical marketing team from SOLIDWORKS gave us a sneak peak of what’s to come. And once again it has the makings of another fantastic release.
