Automation August: Documentation Strategies

30 Minute Webinar
Old exploded views and parts lists haven't been updated for many years. Engineering doesn't have the time, but their input must be taken into account. See how we automate the creation and review of new and modern technical documents. CAD files hold valuable meta data (custom properties) that are reused throughout the business. Modify these property values without the use of CAD. Update technical illustrations and parts lists with a few clicks of a button. View, review and participate in approvals from anywhere. Publish final documentation to a secure portal that vendors and customers can access to ensure they're using the correct data.

Automation August: Inspection Documentation

30 Minute Webinar
See how you can digitize your entire inspection process. From ballooning drawings, comparing revisions, generating and filling out bills of characteristics, there's much to be gained. Though automation can have a quick return on investment, are you still meeting your standards. While, industry standard out-of-the-box reports may be used, it's very common you'll want to customize your report contents and structure. See how we automate template customization to make it easy to make inspection documentation a breeze.

Automation August: Design Automation & Engineering to Order

30 Minute Webinar
Time is often wasted designing products that are similar but different. Witness the tools SOLIDWORKS delivers to speed the development of design variants and automate repetitive tasks. Systematize your engineered to order processes with regulated entry forms, allowing for quick and easy creation and configuration of custom products inside SOLIDWORKS. Extend the benefits of design automation to your engineers, sales teams and other non-technical users inside your company or globally through your website as an online configurator so that distributors, dealers, and customers can configure and order custom products anytime, anywhere and on any device.

Automation August: Model Based Success

30 Minute Webinar
Whether you're creating 2D or 3D manufacturing documentation, you have tools in SOLIDWORKS that you may not be using. Validate your 3D model from a manufacturing perspective as being "fully defined." Import model dimensions in your 2D drawings to make documentation creation and updates faster. Automate Tolerance Stack Up Analysis with a tool now available in SOLIDWORKS Professional as of version 2016. Organize and publish 3D documentation with industry standard tools.
