3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Tutorial Part 12: Shop Floor Programmer for CAM

3DEXPERIENCE Shop Floor Programmer for CAM

In the previous part of our 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Tutorial series we reviewed mold design. In this tutorial we are reviewing the features in Shop Floor Programmer that make it very easy to create the program for our carving knife handle as we program half of the mold for the handle that has been created. When…

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Tutorial Part 11: Mold Design

SOLIDWORKS Mold Design

In the previous part of our 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Tutorial series we reviewed the plastic injection analysis process. In this tutorial we are going to show how the mold design tools can be easily utilized for functionality on this updated geometry. Developing a tooling split can be an arduous process using lesser design tools. When using 3DEXPERIENCE…

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Tutorial Part 10: Plastic Injection Engineer

3DEXPERIENCE Plastic Injection Analysis

In the previous part of our 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Tutorial series we learned about drop test simulation. In this tutorial, we will start with a simple part fill analysis to check gate location and determine if the part will fill in a mold. It will show us sink marks and venting locations as well. This will…

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Tutorial Part 7: Working with xShape changes in SOLIDWORKS

xShape Design Changes

In the previous videos of our 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Tutorial series we updated the handle design using the SOLIDWORKS 3D Sculptor Role (xShape App). The geometry is fairly complex and it’s not a native SOLIDWORKS file. Now we need to make this a usable form from a manufacturability standpoint by making the file visible in 3DEXPERIENCE…
