2. New Manufacturing Capabilities

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.

Best Practices for 3D Printing

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

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.
