As an engineer, using 2D tools to CREATE designs is easy. However, using 2D to ANALYZE assembly designs can be time-consuming and challenging. It's next to impossible to determine proper hole alignment and find interferences between components with static 2D design tools. Fortunately, 3D modeling solutions, like SOLIDWORKS®3D CAD software, provide an easier and better way to identify these problems early in the design process.
SOLIDWORKS helps you cut design costs, reduce complexity, and minimize the chance for errors and rework. With SOLIDWORKS you can:
Identify misaligned holes quickly using the Hole Alignment Tool
Create intelligent relationships between holes and their mates to ensure constant alignment
Discover interference points between components easily using the Interference Detection Tool
Visually determine underlying causes of interference using section views
Pinpoint any potential collisions between moving parts using the Collision Detection Tool
Check clearances to ensure proper range of motion within specified tolerances
Hey passionate designer,Do you have design challenges? Want to improve your day-to-day work and be more productive? Most designers and engineers answer yes and yes.
As an engineer or designer, you’re quite accustomed to software that requires significant resources—both in terms of time and cost—to successfully deploy and integrate into your product development processes. There are some very useful tools out there that cost you absolutely nothing. They are also easy to learn and use, but also provide productivity benefits.
These free Engineering tools from SolidWorks are:
Below screen cast shows you these five favorite engineering tools. Each tool is free to use and provides valuable time-savings capabilities. Watch the video and see how each tool works and where to find them at zero cost.

SOLIDWORKS Composer helps your organization leverage 3D CAD data to create dynamic graphical content that clearly communicates your products.The easy-to-use tools and intuitive product approach let you work directly from 3D CAD data to make high quality illustrations, photo realistic images, and even interactive animations without waiting for a physical prototype.Even nontechnical users can leverage existing product designs with SOLIDWORKS Composer and create associative 2D and 3D deliverables that automatically stay up-to-date with the latest design changes. SOLIDWORKS Composer provides an easy way to create assembly instructions directly from your 3D engineering data.Create instructions faster than you ever thought possible with SolidWorks® Composer. They'll be more intuitive and reduce costly assembly line mistakes. Best of all, you don't need to wait for a physical prototype. You can start creating your instructions while the design is being created. Creating technical instructions with SolidWorks Composer will: Shorten production time Minimize overhead Put you ahead of your competition

The pace of change within digital marketing has continued to accelerate over the past year, and a marketer’s job has never been more complex. By the time a marketer is able to work through and solve for today;s challenges, the window of opportunity to execute and reach key audiences is likely to have passed.
“In order to truly be optimal, brands need to find the individual creative elements within their ads that perform best for each online goals.”
Digital marketing is both an art and a science. Successful marketing comes from collecting, analyzing and using data about when and where customers spend their time. In short there’s a lot to be learned from your audience online.
You’ll get truthful feedback on campaigns and messaging, for one. Incorporating your fans’ interpretation and opinion of your brand can get you both fresh content and loyal fans. Single marketing voices only reach the people already in their networks. To break through, companies and causes will increasingly need to partner with suppliers, brand ambassadors and others to reach more people
The future of digital is…. responsive! To meet the needs of the evolving consumer and reach them wherever they go next, marketers must be able to have flexible strategies, work with speed and power, and think with ingenuity. Publishers, formats, tools, and opportunities will always be emerging and changing so quickness will be key to keeping up.
Tech savvy marketers who master synthesis, community, and creativity will be the winners… But not the biggest winners… The highest dais is reserved for you, the buyer. The future is bright for you all!
