A resource to learn how to make your technology investment work harder. Check out tips and tricks, new product highlights, and how companies are saving time and money. Share your ideas and stay up to date on what’s happening in the industry.
CATI, and 3DVision Technologies offer webinars designed to help make you better faster and smarter. The most recent webinar "Help! Which Simulation Do I Need?" showcased different Simulation products and their roles in product development. SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard, Professional, and Premium all share the easy to use SOLIDWORKS interface and straightforward setup. See how SOLIDWORKS Simulation can help designers and engineers reduce the number of final prototypes, depict life expectancy of a design, optimize for weight reduction, and predict how the product will fail due to over loading. Take a look at the webinar and see first hand the design process Using SOLIDWORKS Simulation and Motion. As always if you have any question or need further information just contact 3DVision...
One of the great benefits of working at 3DVision Technologies is that we have the opportunity visit so many different customer spanning a vast array of industries. Education is one of those areas we like to visit. Wright State University invited us to talk to a group of soon to graduate students. Don Hope, Ryan Field and myself attended the senior design class, and discussed with the students what they would expect when going out into the real world. I presented the SOLIDWORKS Simulation suite and its uses. Examples of SOLIDWORKS Simulation including the importance of Fatigue analysis, Optimization, and how to gain insight into their designs seemed to strike a chord with the students and lead to a good number...
Most audiophiles say that there is something warmer, richer, and better to the sound a vinyl record reproduces. Especially compared to modern digital media. Not having listened to an album since I was young, I figured it was time to see what all the talk was about. I asked my father (long time high-end audio enthusiast) to get out his vintage 1973 JVC VL-5 turntable so we could give it a listen. Note: This picture is post installation of the new feet. After all these years in storage the turntable was in great shape. Everything worked perfectly except for the vibration isolating rubber feet. Out of the four feet, three had the material break down. Leaving them brittle and cracking...
Hooray! I know some of you may not think this is an enhancement to get super excited about. It was glossed over at the launch events, and I didn't fully appreciate at first. It wasn't until I was modifying a weldment model I had previously ran a Simulation study on. That's when my eyes opened. Take for example the model below. A weldment that uses square tubing. Weldments consisting of structural members are meshed as a beam element. The beams are connected by joints. Any changes to the model requires a joint recalculation. Let's say I change the left corner facing us to be an overlap vs an underlap joint. Note that the change could be any geometry change not...
Recently I was up late with my sick child trying to keep his fever down. To keep myself awake for the next thermometer reading, I decided to partake in some late night television. I ended up watching one of the popular sales channels known for its Quality Value and Convenience. Why I do not know, but that is where I ended up. The clearance deal that they were selling at that moment peaked my interest. The "Iced Up Appetizer on Ice Divided Platter with Locking Lid" is a plastic appetizer tray that has a dome lid. Nothing special there until they explained what the "bowl" that was incorporated in the lid was for. It was for Ice. Yep this was a...
