Fine-tune your Design for Machining Process with SOLIDWORKS
Join Austen Popejoy, CAM Applications Engineer at GSC, for an in-depth look at designing for machining using SOLIDWORKS, CAD, Simulation, CAM, Inspection and 3D printing. Designing the part within SOLIDWORKS, you’ll learn how to optimize features using Simulation for a maximum strength to weight ratio and how using Simulation improves 3D printed parts. Discover the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS CAM, as well as CAMWorks, to program the machining on tight-tolerance surfaces. Watch demonstrations on a variety of CNC machines at Ellison Technologies, complete with final inspections before the part ever leaves the machine.
Use SOLIDWORKS Simulation to Optimize 3D Printed Parts
Learn how to use SOLIDWORKS’ Simulation to analyze a design’s merits, ensuring it will meet design parameters before a prototype is ever created. In this session, we’ll examine SOLIDWORKS’ adjustable settings that have a direct impact on the quality of the finished product. Learn the best methods and strategies to guarantee high quality for your 3D printing projects.
Come Full Circle with SOLIDWORKS CAM and Inspection
SOLIDWORKS CAM is a powerful programming tool entirely integrated with SOLIDWORKS which provides a seamless design-to-machine transition. In this session, which pairs CAM with SOLIDWORKS Inspection, learn how to read the product and manufacturing information imbedded in SOLIDWORKS parts to easily guarantee parts match the designers’ intent. Automated tools read tolerances and create Inspection sheets to save time and reduce quality assurance errors.
