Performing a SOLIDWORKS Registry Reset

If you have been experiencing poor performance issues, functionalities not working correctly, or SOLIDWORKS just not running like it used to, then it may be time to reset your SOLIDWORKS registry. Scenarios like this can happen over time with Windows updates affecting certain files, as well as these files becoming corrupt. If this is something that has been happening to you as of late, then a registry reset sounds like a good place to start.

Usage of Mixed Materials for Form/Feel Testing

Ever since I first used a Polyjet 3D printer, I’ve loved its multi-material capabilities. Flexible materials can be difficult to work with in 3D printing, but Polyjet technology not only handles it reliably, but allows the user to designate which parts of a model need to be flexible or rigid. By blending flexible and rigid resins together, a spectrum of Digital Materials can be created ranging from super soft, semi-flexible and rigid yet non-brittle.

Using PDM to Maintain PDF Revisions of Drawings

When you look at most organizations who design using CAD tools, almost all use the .PDF format to share files with others. The .PDF file format is easy to share, works consistently and most everyone has access to software to open them.

The problem that most companies face with this process is that someone has to manage these files. Doing this requires someone to know where it needs to be placed, whether to overwrite and old version of the .PDF or, move it. Don’t forget, they must remember the naming scheme so it can easily be identified as the latest and all while timing this with a change. It is a very resource intensive function and requires precision. If done incorrectly, there is a potential for the wrong data to go to the wrong person. An example would be if someone from the purchasing department was looking for the latest version to send to a vendor for manufacturing and they grab an old revision because someone forgot to generate the .PDF or made a mistake.
