Arming the decision makers with CAD model based benefits and action plans.
A One Hour Seminar on:
MBE Boot Camp is the first of a series of Model-Based Training, brought to you byAction Engineering.
Experience 3D! Workshop is a free program that allows you to come out and experience SolidWorks 3D CAD Software. This hands-on, instructor-led event will allow you to gain valuable knowledge. We will discuss:
Our technical team is ready to get you up-to-speed on the product design and manufacturing tools you need to excel in today’s marketplace. This is not a sales seminar, but it will introduce you to best-in-class tools for design, simulation, product data management and technical documentation creation.
In the final eLearning session on Large Assembly with SolidWorks, we’ll take a look at understanding Referenced Documents and External References, and how they affect large assemblies. We’ll also do a quick review on how to manage when rebuilds happen. We’ll cover strategies for part modeling to reduce rebuild time and memory footprint, as well as large assembly strategies for Configuration and Display States.
If you are an engineer or designer,
chances are you have imported 3D data that needs to be integrated into
your design. Since most 3D CAD software packages don’t provide tools to
edit foreign data, you are probably wasting valuable time re-creating
parts or assemblies.
Now there’s a solution: 3DSync.
Get the Power to Edit any 3D CAD File
3DSync, which utilizes Siemens PLM Software’s synchronous technology,
is 3D editing software that allows you to edit mechanical parts and
assemblies from virtually any CAD system. In fact, you can directly
manipulate geometry by adding 3D driving dimensions. 3DSync’s Live
Rules finds and preserves design intent, and Live Sections lets you
edit inserted 2D cross sections. Data translators allow you to read and
write IGES, STEP, Parasolid, JT and many other 3D formats.
