What is SolidWorks? It’s a program that allows manufacturers to transform 2D drawings into 3D digital designs. Manufacturers can use it to:
- Collaborate by sending files to various departments within a company for feedback and analysis.
- Build 3D models to change different aspects of a product before building it.
- Run stress tests and other simulations on potential products.
- Network with other users who might have helpful advice to give.
In addition, SolidWorks now integrates with Fishbowl Manufacturing. This means you can:
- Import files from SolidWorks to Fishbowl.
- Generate a bill of materials in Fishbowl.
- Set up production stages to manufacture a product in the right order.
- Maintain security through the use of access rights in Fishbowl.
