In order for a client to obtain a license from a server, the client must have TCP/IP connectivity to the server. Two common tests to verify the connectivity are the ping and telnet tests.

SOLIDWORKS Visualize Sep 14, 2022

SOLIDWORKS Visualize leverages 3D CAD data to create content that is print and web-ready in minutes. It helps users select, validate, and improve robust design concepts before committing expensive engineering, prototyping, and marketing resources to a project. An important feature of SOLIDWORKS Visualize is its design, which highly leverages one or many GPUs (especially NVIDIA RTX GPUs), dramatically increasing rendering performance above and beyond “normal” CPU hardware.

3D Printing Aug 23, 2022

There's no doubt that 3D printing has changed the way products are developed, tested, and manufactured but do we fully understand how a part goes from concept to production? In this article, we'll look at how a company can utilize 3D printing, from prototyping to design validation and even tooling. While this is a hypothetical story, it is a scenario we've seen repeatedly in the real world, and if you develop products, it's likely relatable.
