At SolidSolutions we run training courses for a large variety of manufacturing solutions such as SolidCAM, SWOOD and SigmaNEST alongside the newly introduced SOLIDWORKS CAM. To help make our training courses easier to understand and more relatable to real life working situations we have purchased a 5 axis milling machine to demonstrate the outputs from these programs in action. Not only is this machine versatile in its output, it is also quiet and portable, making it suitable for demonstrations. This machine will be featuring at our upcoming SOLIDWORKS 2019 U.K. launch events. So if you’re interested in seeing what it’s capable of, or wish to discuss your manufacturing needs then click here to sign up to a launch event in your area.
If you can’t wait until then though, we have created an animation using SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS Visualize Professional. We used the motion manager in SOLIDWORKS 2018 to define the path of the moving parts, then exported the model and motion information to SOLIDWORKS Visualize. In Visualize we added the dynamic camera changes and created the final render of the animation.
If you want to display your own SOLIDWORKS Visualize skills then we are running a competition through September and October with a chance to win an Apple iPad. For full competition details, a full list of prizes and how to enter see our blog here. The deadline is midnight Wednesday 31st October 2018, good luck!!
