3D Printing May 09, 2022

GoEngineer's 3D printing division has been helping companies solve problems for longer than many people realize 3D printing has even existed. As a result, it's not uncommon to find people with 10, 15, or even 20+ years of 3D printing experience. This experience includes working with elementary schools and universities, hobbyists, and startups to the world's largest corporations.

There are several ways to save a SOLIDWORKS assembly as an STL file for 3D printing (some more tedious than others). Printing an assembly with all the components at once takes advantage of natural clearances between the components. Printing the components all at once using support material creates a fully built assembly with no need for fasteners.   




3D Scanning Creaform Mar 31, 2022

3D scanning is the process of capturing three-dimensional data from an object, including shape, appearances, color, and textures using structured light or lasers. In this article, see how this technology is used and Creaform’s portfolio of 3D scanners that can help easily capture this data in the automotive space. 



SOLIDWORKS just announced updates to licensing costs that will go into effect April 1st, 2022. Learn what they are and get answers to your questions here. 


3D Printing Feb 23, 2022

In order to meet the rise in demand and better accommodate patient needs, dental labs have been shifting away from traditional manufacturing methods, toward cutting-edge additive manufacturing technologies. In this article, we’ll explore two dental 3D printing technologies offered from Stratasys (PolyJet and P3) and how they operate on the J5 DentaJet and Stratasys Origin One Dental respectively.   


3D Printing FDM Feb 09, 2022

Leading up to the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, the US men and women competing in the Luge event have spent the past few years improving their equipment and sled speed with the help of additive manufacturing. Teams around the world are getting faster (already reaching speeds over 90mph), and when you’re being timed to the thousandth of a second, you want every advantage you can get.


PostProcess Jan 26, 2022

PostProcess Technologies recently announced the addition of a new FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) support removal system to their solutions portfolio - the VORSA 500. This new post-processing machine uses VVD (Volumetric Velocity Dispersion) technology resulting in simple, safe, and automated hands-free support removal. 


SOLIDWORKS Inspection Jan 19, 2022

No matter the manufacturing process used to produce parts, it’s essential to monitor and verify part geometries to ensure the accuracy and consistency of your products. Here we'll see how SOLIDWORKS Inspection 2022 helps with this process. 



Over the last few years, more and more SOLIDWORKS users have preferred machine-based Standalone licenses over Online Licensing. SOLIDWORKS has therefore announced that they will no longer be supporting the Online Licensing option after February 2022.
