Take the Javelin 20 Challenge

Javelin 20 Years

In celebration of Javelin’s 20th Anniversary this year, we are planning a lot of fun “20-themed” activities across Canada in the upcoming months. One of the activities is the Javelin 20 Challenge. We are encouraging everybody at Javelin to think of something that challenges them, maybe something that they have wanted to try or achieve, and it must be related to the number twenty! What Challenges You? That is the question we asked everybody at Javelin. It turns out, there are a lot of challenges we tend to procrastinate with or avoid. We received a wide variety of great Javelin 20 Challenges. Here are some examples of the challenges our colleagues are committed to accomplishing leading up to Javelin’s anniversary on July 3, 2017: Run or walk 20 kilometers each week To put this in perspective, 20 kilometers is the distance it takes for me to commute one way to the office…

Discover the True Value of SOLIDWORKS Simulation [On-demand Webinar]

Simulation vs Traditional Methods White Paper

Let’s start by thinking about how much it costs if you don’t use design validation tools as part of your design process. There are many factors to consider; the time it takes to fix the design in CAD, the money that is spent during re-work, and the worst case scenario – product design failure in the market. SOLIDWORKS Simulation software can help your business avoid these common design challenges by improving efficiency and ensuring that your design will be correct the first time. Watch our on-demand video below to learn why 53% of best-in-class companies are using virtual design tools that reduce their development time by 16% and reduce their product cost by an average of 13%. You will also discover how these companies are integrating design validation tools early in the design process to maximize efficiency with their resources. Simulation Accuracy Benefits Product Development With integrated SOLIDWORKS Simulation solutions,…
