The SOLIDWORKS PDM error message, "The program and the file vault are of incompatible versions" is commonly run into when performing a major SOLIDWORKS PDM version upgrade. It occurs if the database has not been upgraded or if the wrong PDM client version has been installed.
Additive manufacturing has completely transformed the way businesses test, prototype, and produce products; from extra durable auto and aerospace applications to delicate medical models. But regardless of the industry you’re in, or the material technology you use, post-printing inefficiencies can still prohibit full scalability. The intelligent resin and support removal technologies available with PostProcess Technologies’ DEMI systems can help streamline your additive workflow.
The Combine feature in SOLIDWORKS is a great tool used most often in surface modeling as it allows you to take molds of created parts for mold operations. It is also useful when creating negative spaces for a part to fit into to show where an item might reside in an assembly.
Congratulations on completing your PDM Standard Jumpstart, or PDM Professional services here with GoEngineer! Please keep this documentation with you to help install the remaining PDM clients and configure all the additional components. Throughout this document are links that lead to additional information on that topic. That information is valuable; this document serves to help organize that information in a logical and consistent manner without the need to redo the existing content.
SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard is a great data management tool included with SOLIDWORKS Professional and SOLIDWORKS Premium. However, it is built on an SQL Express database, which unfortunately means there are no automated maintenance plans in SQL Server Management Studio. This makes automating the SQL backup procedure more difficult, but, as we will explain in this document, it is possible.
SOLIDWORKS 2022 offers some new features and enhancements when working with models on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. In this article, get a sneak peek at what’s new when performing simulations, using 3D Sculptor, and data management capabilities on the cloud.
Preserve Relative Paths is an option in SOLIDWORKS PDM Copy Tree and Move Tree features that makes it possible for the copied or moved files to bring their sub-folder structure along with them. The sub-folder structure is the folder name of where the files originally were located. In the example below, the components are broken up into folders based on their file type.
PostProcess Technologies recently announced their latest resin removal system, the DEMI 4000. Combining their Submersed Vortex Cavitation (SVC) technology and their AUTOMAT3D software platform, PostProcess has created the world’s first automated system for SL (Stereolithography) resin removal.
For designers and manufacturers, the end goal is usually the same - to make products stronger, cheaper, and lighter and to iterate designs that are easier to manufacture. To do this, many engineers use SOLIDWORKS Simulation software for testing and running analyses as well as realistic rendering software like SOLIDWORKS Visualize to portray real-life products for customer demonstrations and marketing initiatives.
