How I Used SOLIDWORKS To Prove My Star Wars Fan Theory

by Shivani Patel

What Made the Dent in Boba Fett’s Helmet? Star Wars has a memorable scene where Boba Fett pulls off his iconic helmet from his father’s head. In the space between the third and fourth movies, Boba chooses to keep

How Additive Manufacturing Helps Achieve Topology Optimization And Why You Might Care

by Arvind Krishnan

End-use parts are now being produced with 3D printing technologies that are often lighter and stronger than their counterparts produced with traditional manufacturing processes. Because you can create designs with greatly reduced mass using additive manufacturing, SOLIDWORKS Simulation and Stratasys 3D printers become a natural match, enabling you to create designs that will keep you ahead of the competition.
