Introduced in SOLIDWORKS 2017, ‘Magnetic Mates’ was arguably one of the best new features, but as the Beatles put it: “It’s getting better all the time!”. With SOLIDWORKS 2018, things are not only getting better, snapping objects together is getting easier too.
To operate efficiently, manufacturers must not only effectively manage assets (people, IP, technical systems, production equipment, and distribution networks) but also perhaps their most valuable asset: the enormous amount of data housed within their departments, databases and systems. Although most companies recognize the benefits of managing, mining, and using data to improve efficiency and achieve a competitive edge, these efforts have largely focused on managing and leveraging data at the department- and/or application-level, not enterprise-wide.
Capturing problems in RX Tool.
Have you experienced a unique problem in SOLIDWORKS that you can reproduce using a specific workflow?
Has your VAR Application Engineer requested an RX recording from you whilst troubleshooting some technical difficulties?
If you answered yes to one of the above questions then SOLIDWORKS RX Tool is the answer that you have been looking for.
This week Rudolf van den Berg takes us through a demo of Smap3D Plant design software.
Bio: Smap3D Plant Design
Smap3D Plant Design is 3D CAD software for fast, easy design of 3D piping systems for mechanical engineering, equipment production and plant design. It provides an integrated software solution for an optimal process chain in plant design. With one specialized program for each process step (Smap3D P&ID, Smap3D Piping and Smap3D Isometric), the required solution can be tailored to individual requirements. The P&ID To-Do-List is a function integrated in Smap3D Plant Design which creates an intelligent connection between S3D P&ID Schematic and 3D piping.
MECAD Systems does it again!
Over the course of three full days of SOLIDWORKS World 2018, more than 5,000 members of the SOLIDWORKS community got to attend more than 200 breakout sessions. Atendees were able to gain insight into specific topics or solutions ranging from design to manufacturing; 3D CAD and simulation; electrical design & schematics; communications; collaboration; and data management.
