3D CAD: Introduction to SOLIDWORKS 2023
View Description

Join us for a complimentary "First Look" webinar to discover the benefits & capabilities that SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD could bring to your organisation.

We start from the basics, creating simple 3D geometry from scratch and using it to generate drawings for manufacturing and client communication automatically. We then move onto the virtual workbench environment, building prototype assemblies, allowing us to check for interferences/misalignments, followed by some virtual testing to ensure the product is fit for purpose.

Designing Point of Sale with SOLIDWORKS
View Description

Displaying your products in the best possible way is vital in today's competitive market. Although a product might be the best, it doesn’t mean consumers will select it if it doesn’t draw them in.

Point of Sale is essential for any retailer, and with the assistance of SOLIDWORKS you can elevate your designs. Innovate new ways to create displays to entice consumers to buy a product and simulate real-life loads to ensure the integrity of your designs. We can also work out ergonomics, create flat patterns and full cut-lists, and even use automated costing tools too. No more finger in the air guessing.

Model Based Definition (MBD) Introduction
View Description

Join us for a complimentary webinar on Model Based Definition.

Traditional 2D drawings can be time consuming to create and manage, and technical drawings can be open to misinterpretation by the end user resulting in costly errors.

SOLIDWORKS MBD (Model Based Definition) is an integrated, drawingless manufacturing solution for SOLIDWORKS that helps you define, organise, and publish 3D Product Manufacturing Information into industry standard file formats such as 3D PDF and eDrawings.

With SOLIDWORKS MBD we have one file to create and manage, 3D is easy for the end user to understand, and the Product Manufacturing Information can be easily accessed downstream in a variety of formats.

Once we've shown you the rich toolset in SOLIDWORKS, you then have the opportunity to fire questions at one of our Elite SOLIDWORKS Certified Engineers allowing you to pose scenarios to your specific requirements.

Designing for Architecture and Construction with SOLIDWORKS
View Description

Join us for a complimentary "First Look" seminar to discover the benefits & capabilities that SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD brings to those in the Architecture and Construction industries.

SOLIDWORKS is an excellent fit for the AEC (Architectural, Engineering and Construction) industry. Architects are constantly pushing the boundaries of building design and are continually creating more organic and complex shapes which test the boundaries of physics and design.

Designers and architects alike need an easy-to-use CAD package which enables the creation of complex designs with the parametric capabilities to facilitate design changes at any stage of the design process.

In this session we start from the basics, creating simple 3D geometry from scratch and then showing how it can be used to generate drawings and other vital data to be leveraged across planning, layout, fabrication, and construction.

Designing Industrial Equipment with SOLIDWORKS 2022
View Description

Join us for a complimentary "First Look" seminar to discover the benefits & capabilities that SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD brings to companies designing industrial equipment.

In industrial design, designing complex equipment quickly, while verifying strength, durability, and performance is so important. You need to outpace competitors by creating better machines at a lower cost. Using SOLIDWORKS in the design process to production, everything can be streamlined. With designs being planned, tested, and inspected concurrently in the development phase, costs are reduced both from efficiencies and a reduction in weight, and a reduction in the number of physical prototypes required. The SOLIDWORKS 2022 portfolio is uniquely equipped to help you tackle these challenges, shortening your route to market.

In this session we start from the basics, creating simple 3D geometry from scratch and using it to automatically generate drawings for manufacture, client communication and regulatory sign-off. We then move onto the virtual workbench environment, building prototype assemblies, allowing us to check for interferences/misalignments, followed by some virtual testing to ensure the product is fit for purpose.

Once we've shown you the rich toolset in SOLIDWORKS, you then have the opportunity to fire questions at one of our Elite SOLIDWORKS Certified Engineers allowing you to pose scenarios to your specific requirements.

Replicating Physical Tests: Strength and Fatigue
View Description

Simulation tools can be used to replicate a variety of physical tests and predict how parts will perform. These test can help you to make intelligent design decisions, reduce the material required and reduce the risk of failure. Although physical testing is still required for many applications, virtual tests can dramatically speed up development and reduce the number of prototype iterations, leading to cost savings and a faster time to market. In this webcast we'll be covering some of the most common tests that are run on parts - Strength and Fatigue.
