Distributed Manufacturing

Wohlers Talk

Most mass manufacturing is done at centralized locations. Many produce millions of products annually. Envision a future where this capacity occurs in many more locations much closer to the customer. Deliveries occur faster and less expensively. Relatively small quantities of products are tailored to the needs of the geographic area. Inventories are smaller, with true just-in-time delivery closer to reality for a greater number of companies and products. Functionality, quality, and value improve.

How do I backup/archive the individual projects in SOLIDWORKS Electrical?

Javelin Tech Tips

You can backup and archive SOLIDWORKS Electrical Projects individually rather than taking a backup of the whole electrical data using the Environmental archive. Archiving a project backs up all of the documents and data within it, as well as items required for design work like symbols, title blocks, and settings. The project archive command is available from the Project Manager Tab. NOTE : You must close a project before archiving it, except if it is only open in your workstation.

Getting Acquainted with Complex Relationships in FEA

The Solidworks Blog

Design engineers have been traditionally somewhat reluctant to use nonlinear analysis. It might be because of its complex problem formulation or long solution time. However, now that nonlinear finite element analysis (FEA) tools such as SIMULIAworks® integrate with SOLIDWORKS® data and workflows, nonlinear analysis may be less intimidating to learn and use.

Reactive Additive Manufacturing Enables Printing of Metal Powders

3D Printing Progress

Popular high strength wrought aluminum alloys could not previously be printed because they suffer hot tearing (solidification cracking), resulting in parts with very poor mechanical properties. The RAM process forms sub-micron inoculants in the melt pool that nucleate aluminum grains to produce a fine equiaxed microstructure for good printability and exceptional performance

Adding SOLIDWORKS Assembly Configuration BOM Headers

Javelin Tech Tips

SOLIDWORKS Configurations are a great thing. I have spoken many times about how great they are and how big of a fan I am. I came across a major release revert that took away the automatic naming of configuration name titles/headers. I tested this automatic feature in 10 generations of SOLIDWORKS and it worked in 2010 up until 2019. Normally SOLIDWORKS likes advancements instead of taking away features. At first glance, it appears they just took this function out but that isn’t the case.

How to create Tools and Tool Cribs for Milling in SOLIDWORKS CAM

Javelin Tech Tips

In order to create a solid program, we need an accurate representation of our tools. SOLIDWORKS CAM has many pre-built standard tools for us to customize for our machining purposes. We may also add our own custom tools and holders. Once we have our tools, they need to be organised into groups or cribs to reflect the tool stations that will be posted to code and used on the CNC. It also makes life easier to manage when using a wide range of tooling.
