3D printing allows for lighter and less expensive End of Arm Tooling

End of arm tooling

FDM technology provides an alternative method for producing End of Arm Tooling (EOAT) that can provide dramatic time and cost savings while optimizing performance. FDM is an additive manufacturing (3D printing) process that builds plastic parts layer by layer using data from 3D computer-aided design (CAD) files. With 3D printing, EOATs can be customized and tailored…

How to apply Textures to 3D Printed Parts with SOLIDWORKS

3D Printed Texture

SOLIDWORKS users often need to create complex or repeating features, but these features can be time-consuming to generate, especially on complex models. Some designs, such as a textured surface or a grip, require textures or bumps which can be functional or just for aesthetic purposes. SOLIDWORKS 2019 introduces a new 3D Texture Tool that leverages…
