Progressive Die Design Webinar

Progressive Die If you are designing progressive dies, chances are you have either seen or heard of SolidWorks before. Chances are even greater that the demonstration didn’t resemble a die at all.

SolidWorks is a great design tool for many industries. We will dive deeper into specific aspects for the tooling industry focusing on companies and individuals who are designing progressive dies. Continue reading

Multibody Part vs. Assembly in SolidWorks

There are fewer differences than ever between a multibody part file and an assembly file in SolidWorks.

Where commonalities exist, the user may take advantage of performance and file management benefits of a multibody part.

Where they differ, each has individual benefits that make them a clear choice in each situation

Why Assemblies

Original AssemblyThis assembly contains 19 parts, some unique, some with multiple instances.

As an assembly, this results in several files that need to be managed. 1 for the assembly and 1 each for the unique part files within this assembly.  Continue reading

Working Across the Network vs. Working Locally

Powerful software tools like SolidWorks create amazingly complex files that are  detailed and accurate to many decimal places. So it goes without saying that the management of this data presents a challenge when it comes to optimizing performance while still maintaining some sort of process to centrally manage the hours of data created each day.

Implementing clean data storage and backup practices are obviously top priority in most companies, but WHERE the data is stored is FAR from being the best place for the data to be accessed. Continue reading
