Changing the tip/tips on a Professional Stratasys FDM 3D printer can seem like a pretty big job, but if you approach this with a ‘pit crew’ mentality of, get in and get out, it really is a quick and easy procedure. Here are a few “tips” for changing tips on a Fortus 3D Printer.

Enough of us have seen this message before: activation count exceeded. We cringe when it happens and then try to figure out who we must scramble to call to get it resolved. In most cases, this overage was done without your knowledge. There are a few steps to keep this from happening. The sections below will get you the information on your situation and how to address it.
The first step to being successful is identifying a solution to a problem, I learned that on Shark Tank. In this case, my problem was that I had a bunch of race medallions laying around that I wanted to display. I looked online and the costs were expensive, and I thought heck, I can design my own. So, I fired up SOLIDWORKS, made a model, collaborated with my colleague Jeff Lendermon on the final design of a medallion hanger. Here is how it all happened.
If your organization uses SOLIDWORKS PDM, you have taken a step in the best direction to avoid data duplication and enforce revision controls during the product design process. Considering these benefits, your team may have stumbled across this conundrum – Do I manage my SOLIDWORKS simulation results in the PDM vault? To answer this question, let’s understand the Simulation tools in SOLIDWORKS.
Data is going to pile up over time. It can be the biggest part of managing our data in the long haul. Let’s discuss a few options here to reduce the footprint, or at least spread it around a little bit with compression and cold storage. Each of these methods for SOLIDWORKS PDM have their own give and take, so it is important to keep these in mind before implementing either solution.
The location where our data is stored isn’t set in stone. There will be situations when we need more space, more speed, or in a bad situation – a failing drive. In part one, we covered vault cleanup and permanently removing deleted files. This blog contains methods used to relocate and redistribute our SOLIDWORKS PDM vault storage.
