Did you know that PLM Group has a Knowledge Base that contains articles to help SOLIDWORKS users? Our mission is to empower people and manufacturing companies to innovate and benefit from digitalization and sustainability by providing tools, knowledge and inspiration. One way we support you on your journey is by raising awareness and providing assistance, especially on topics that are frequently asked
From design to print. Our story begins when Lars Haaland, a PLM Group employee, got the idea to make a nutcracker. No, not the ballet dance everyone knew, which had certainly amazed us perhaps even more, but a nutcracker tool. Christmas was approaching and all the shops started selling different kinds of nuts. And these
To constrain a model the right way can be a challenge in simulation. You want a model without rigid body motion, but you do not want it to be too stiff. The 3-2-1- method is one way to help you solve this kind of problem and get a result with the expected deformations. I have
Did you know that it is really easy to get SOLIDWORKS Simulation up and running? After you have bought the license there are just few steps to go through. STEP 1 – Simulation License Setup Just like a SOLIDWORKS licence, Simulation license can be either standalone or network (SNL). If you have bought a Standalone
As a product designer you must take many factors into consideration when designing your product. Not only do you need to get the right design ready fast in order to minimize the delays and cost overruns associated with late-cycle performance and manufacturability issues. Designers also increasingly face the challenges of better understanding design behaviour and
SOLIDWORKS 2022 has already been introduced at various launch events. If you haven’t had the chance to attend one of these, here is your chance to read about some of the new and interesting features.
Nekkar is working to minimize environmental impacts with an innovative closed fish cage. Using SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation allows them to reduce costs while improving quality. Read the story below and learn how the company is working to revolutionize the aquaculture industry.
The other day Stian was asked “how high a frequency does it take to break a wineglass?”, and he didn’t have an answer, but this question piqued the curiosity. So, with some colleagues we turned to SOLIDWORKS Simulation and took a closer look at the different tools they provide to see if one of them could help us find out just how high the sound had to be to break the glass.
In an exciting and engaging day at work it is easy to forget the nice warm cup of coffee that you “just” poured. And quite often we’ve had to pour out half full cups, because the coffee has got too cold.
