Overall Satisfaction with SOLIDWORKS
SOLIDWORKS is utilized solely by the Engineering Department to evaluate, measure, and flatten customer 3D models so we can turn them into 2D drawings and fabricate the parts on our laser and brake presses. A lot of our customer models are very lackluster and must redraw the parts with SOLIDWORKS to be able to create the 2D prints. We also will use it in conjunction with customer prints to get missing dimensions on the customer-supplied prints to ensure we meet quality requirements.
- Heal corrupt 3D models.
- Feature recognition is invaluable to correcting corrupt models.
- Drawing 3D models made easy.
- Some 3D models are completely impossible to repair via feature works and healing. Understanding all the different 3D modeling software and convincing customers to set standards for all models drawn by employees would be ideal even though it is outside of SOLIDWORKS control, some people that model parts are plain and simply not suited or managed properly to ensure the end customer has the ability to work with their model.
- Saves time on reverse engineering a part from concept to prototype and into production.
- Ease of training new employees to use SOLIDWORKS.
SOLIDWORKS is way less complicated and easier to use, overall if you have had any computer training anyone can easily sit down and be trained within a minimal time to be able to use it efficiently and effectively. One of my employees went so far as to teach his 10-year-old daughter to use SOLIDWORKS and she models parts with ease now. She is just an average kid that likes to learn something new and I was very impressed with her detail to make the sheet metal part correctly and how easily she learned it with minimal training from her dad.
