Simultaneously Edit Sheet Metal In 2D and 3D with BricsCAD Mechanical

In some cases, modifications on sheet metal models can be quite difficult and not evident. The associative mode of sheet metal unfolding can help. In this mode, you can see folded and unfolded representations of your model. Two windows can be placed side-by-side. They have bi-directional associativity. Switching to the sheet metal features, changes the […]

Parametrizing sheet metal parts – BricsCAD Mechanical

Sheet metal for BricsCAD adds new design intelligence by automatically placing 3D constraints within your model as you work. The result: better dimensional control over your designs with the automated creation of these constraints. This part is created in SolidWorks. With the communicator add-on you can report it to BricsCAD and convert it the sheet […]

SMARTElectrode – How to redefine operation origin?

Hello! Today I will show you how to redefine the zero-point in SMARTElectrode interactively. This enhancement is available from Version 12.0.1.0. The burnsheet shows all chosen parameters including their position. If the zero-point shall be changed, this can be done in the operation definition user interface or in Creo Parametric directly. The new coordinate system […]

SMARTElectrode – How to use burnsheet notification?

Hello, I want to show you one of the improvements in SMARTElectrode 12. In the new release, we further improved the display and processing of notifications. These can be analyzed more closely in the burnsheet user interface and corrected if necessary. The software differentiates between errors, warnings and information. In most cases, information describes the […]

ZW3D 2019 – Optimized Electrode Tools

Optimized electrode tools In the new version, electrode can be created by shape or assembly mode. Users can preset some factors for electrode, such as round rule or drawing format. And the electrode drawing layout is more reasonable. Let’s create the electrode Bank for this electrode. In the electrode blind configuration, users can decide to […]

TopSolid’Mold: Design Your Electrodes

Now that we’re done designing our mold It is time to manufacture it using TopSolid’Electrode. The first thing that we are going to do is load a copy of our core block into our electrode document. But at the same time, we are going to ask it to deactivate all of the drillings for our […]

The Fabricating Center

(relaxing music) – What we are is primarily an industrial machine shop, so we’re a job shop, so where we really shine is low-run and prototypes and that sort of stuff. – We do engineering, designing, so we have multiple services that we can offer. We love doing interesting jobs. We like taking on the […]

Salute to Skills: Workshops for Warriors and Hire Heroes USA

I don’t even really remember not being a Marine. It’s only been five years, but everything else feels like it was like my childhood. It’s very scary trying to go out into the job market, especially when you have a job that doesn’t translate very well into non-government organizations. One of my friends told me […]

Tig Welding Marathon – Marble Machine X #75

I was trying to line this one up sideways like this I was surprised because when the hole was in the middle the rest seemed to be offset But then I realized the center of the hole is actually offset The distance from the edge of this hole to this edge is 11 millimetres and […]

Robot Welding with SolidWorks – RoboDK Plug-In

Hey what’s up guys, Jeremy here, from RoboDK. Welcome to the second video on our Solidworks plugin. To follow up with what we saw in the first tutorial, we will reuse the example with a table and 2 angle irons to show you how you can use RoboDK’s feature to improve your welding paths. Before […]
