Streamline Sheet Metal Design and Manufacture

Using SOLIDWORKS you can dramatically reduce the time required to design and manufacture sheet metal parts and assemblies, helping you to get your products delivered on time and on budget.

Streamline the Design of Sheet Metal Parts and Assemblies

SOLIDWORKS delivers a powerful suite of tools that provides complete control over the design and manufacture of sheet metal parts and assemblies.

Starting with design, SOLIDWORKS powerful modelling tools enable you to quickly create complex sheet metal designs complete with a fully annotated and associative flat pattern. SOLIDWORKS also provides the ability to add all the manufacturing information directly to the model, eliminating the need to create traditional flat pattern drawings.

SOLIDWORKS PDM then takes over managing the entire Sheet Metal design-to -manufacture process. With an easy-to-use Windows Explorer interface, members of your design and manufacturing teams can easily find and view critical design information. The live preview in eDrawings provides a great way for stakeholders to review and collaborate on sheet metal designs complete with its flat pattern configuration without having to open it in SOLIDWORKS.

For CNC manufacturing, use SOLIDWORKS PDM’s out-of-the-box task to automate the creation of a flat pattern file straight from your SOLIDWORKS design. PDM tasks can be invoked manually or triggered via a workflow, a great way to save time and reduce the risk of mistakes.

When your design is ready for review, SOLIDWORKS PDM workflows can automate tracking of approvals, eliminating the need for manual sign-off procedures. Just follow the next workflow step defined for your project and SOLIDWORKS PDM will take care of notifying the right people, maintaining both accuracy and accountability.

For external partners and suppliers who need to collaborate on design projects, powerful Web connection capabilities enable browser-based secure vault access and editing, from anywhere on any device. Sheet Metal designs complete with their associative manufacturing information can be reviewed and checked right there on the shop floor.  Documents can be made either view only, or fully editable, and access to PDM workflows gives stakeholders the ability to change a documents status, providing decision-making on the go!

Know Your Designs Will Pass the Injection-molding Process

Producing high-quality, plastic injection-molded parts more quickly and cost-effectively than the competition has become a critical factor for manufacturing success in today’s global market. However, producing injection-molded parts that are free of manufacturing defects requires a complex mix of time, temperature, pressure, material, and variations in tooling or part design.

Don’t cave to complexity. Read this white paper to learn how designers, moldmakers and manufacturers are saving time and money by answering these questions with SOLIDWORKS Plastics before cutting steel:
  • Does the part geometry meet draft and wall thickness requirements?
  • How long should the injection/cooling/ejection cycle be? What’s the optimal temperature for the material, cooling channels, and mold?
  • What’s the right filling/packing pressure and best material to use for a particular part?
  • And, will the use of special inserts, side actions, additional injection gates, special secondary operations, or unique cooling channel designs improve part quality or shorten cycle times?

Impact of 3D Printing On Indian Government

The “Make in India” initiative launched by Mr. Narendra Modi has driven several manufacturers  towards producing goods locally. This has also resulted into projects falling in the pipeline. To expedite projects, there is a need of a technology that can save cost and time. 3D printing has emerged as the best alternative in this regard. With its potential to disrupt conventional prototyping and manufacturing methods, 3D printing is all set to boost the initiative launched the BJP-led government. This has also encouraged the Indian government to take its GDP from 16% to 25% till 2025. To achieve its dream and focus on manufacturing, the Indian government is also funding start-ups that incorporate 3D printing technology into manufacturing.

Change in manufacturing policy

To improve its manufacturing output, the Indian government has made some changes in the ‘National Policy for Advanced Manufacturing.’ This policy has considered lots of concerns and opportunities that 3D printing raises. The Indian government has realized that there could be a serious threat on jobs since 3D printing can disrupt conventional manufacturing methods. Moreover, there will also be a need to make people skilled in using this technology. So to tackle all these probabilities, the Indian government is focusing on young minds.

Technology in education

To be a global player in manufacturing, India is encouraging young minds to study the technology and innovate. One of the country’s leading automobile manufacturer, Mahindra Group has donated a 3D printer to a local schools since it the one of those who use 3D printing. Making 3D printers available at schools will help students to learn, adapt, and innovate. To assist innovation through technology, Indian government has also adapted industry 4.0 in its plan with major focus  n 3D printing.

Indian government funding a 3D printing startup

Since surgeries due to accidents in India are on the rise, a tremendous need to develop alternatives for skull and facial surgery was felt. A Banglore-based firm, DF3D, which was launched in 2014, took the initiative for surgical planning. The firm aimed in providing better alternative for patients in need of jaw bones fixing, skull fixing, and orthopaedic surgeries due to birth-defect, or accidental injuries. To encourage it, the Department of Biotechnology of Government of India granted it a sum of 50 lakh in 2015. Due to this noble gesture of the Indian government, the firm has become the “world’s first e-commerce marketplace for skulls and bones.”

3D printing in India is booking due to which lots of 3D players in India have emerged to tap the domestic market.
