Abaqus Sep 29, 2023

The Abaqus Associative Interface is tailored to integrate with SOLIDWORKS users. It provides a direct channel to transfer geometry from SOLIDWORKS to Abaqus/CAE. With this interface, users can easily send individual components or a full assembly from SOLIDWORKS to Abaqus/CAE using a single click.

3D Printing PolyJet Sep 28, 2023

Medical image segmentation is the initial workflow process that includes isolating DICOM medical images, such as CT scans or MRI scans, into distinct structures or regions of interest (ROI). The goal for segmenting this type of data is to identify and explore areas of the anatomy, whether it’s tissue, cardiovascular, or bone. For example, virtually positioning CAD implants or creating water-tight mesh files for 3D printing patient-specific anatomical models.


SOLIDWORKS Plastics Sep 26, 2023

SOLIDWORKS simulation tools can provide valuable feedback on your projects by simulating designs and manufacturing processes early in the development workflow. Using this feedback, designers can save considerable time and prevent costly redesigns that might have gone unnoticed until production started. SOLIDWORKS Plastics can help prevent common manufacturing and quality issues in injection molded parts such as weld lines.

3DEXPERIENCE Design Sep 25, 2023

In this article, we'll cover some of the features and tools in 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA for assembly design, part design, drawing creation, sheet metal tools, and more. The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is the backbone of 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA, giving it some advantage over the traditional CATIA V5. For smaller to medium-sized companies without ITAR requirements, a cloud version of the platform is a great option.

3D Printing FDM Sep 22, 2023

FDM 3D printed parts have a range of applications, from functional prototypes to end-use parts, but they can also be quite valuable on a shop floor, serving as fixtures and assembly aids. When rolling out new product lines or getting new staff up to speed, they can help bridge a knowledge gap to save time and money.



After installation, SOLIDWORKS automatically sets up file associations in the registry. However, these associations may get lost over time. Several symptoms indicate this has happened. 


In this article, we discuss how to add a coefficient of drag goal into a flow simulation project. Derived from the principle of Bernoulli’s equation, SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation can help us obtain this value quickly by utilizing our setup parameters. 

SOLIDWORKS Inspection Sep 19, 2023

Getting an Inspection drawing set up so that the inspector can clearly interpret it is vital. One way SOLIDWORKS Inspection can help is by creating sub-balloons. In this tutorial, we explain how to do so in the Standalone interface.

3DEXPERIENCE Design Sep 18, 2023

In this tutorial, we provide step-by-step instructions for how to install 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA. From retrieving the installation files to first launch.
