2. New Manufacturing Capabilities

Manufacture the Impossible by Integrating New Capabilities into Your Design Process

Learn how the part-to-production process benefits from additive manufacturing, topology optimization and simulation.

The proliferation of data, automation, and increased computing power is redefining the design and manufacturing landscape. Companies adapting to these trends are pushing performance limits and creating more innovative products faster than ever before.

Understanding how to best leverage these new capabilities is key to your success. This video series illustrates how additive manufacturing, 3D printing technology, topology optimization and simulation work in concert in the part-to-production process.

Additive Manufacturing (AM)

AM opens up opportunities for creating more complex parts with better performance and less time to market. Learn how you can rethink design in terms of complex shapes and part consolidation and understand the benefits and constraints of AM.

Best Practices for 3D Printing

Understand 3D Printing best practices and tools available in SOLIDWORKS to achieve successful prints and reduced build times.

Topology Optimization

Go from napkin sketch idea to an optimal design by using the Topology Optimization tool in SOLIDWORKS Simulation. Learn how design and manufacturing constraints factor into the process and understand real-world performance with a strength test.

Mechanical Failure Modes

Verify the structural integrity of the topology-optimized shape through strength, vibration and fatigue tests using SOLIDWORKS Simulation, and understand how upfront validation improves your designs.

3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace

The final piece of the process is taking your design from the digital to physical world. The 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace is an online part manufacturing service. This video illustrates the workflow and how the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform connects you with trusted vendors.
