Whether it is document templates, weldment bend tables or hole callout format files, SOLIDWORKS searches under its set File Locations for the needed information.

So how do we change these location paths or reset them? Here, we are looking at three easy ways of retuning our default file locations. They can be Reset from System Options, changed from File Locations or totally reset them from within the Windows registry.

Color Lab Project : Clemson

TPM's Color Lab worked with Clemson to create high resolution images and vibrant colors with Backlit SEG for their signage. If you aren't familiar,  SEG stands for Silicone Edge Graphics, which are high resolution dye-sublimated fabric graphic finished with a thin silicone strip. The silicone strip is sewn onto the edge of the graphic, and the strip is then inserted into a frame with a recessed groove. The lights are mounted throughout the back panel to create illuminated, eye catching presentation of your graphics. 

There are many benefits of SEG. The fabrics can be washed and steamed making it more durable that traditional graphics. They are lightweight and can be folded, taking up less space than other print graphics. The SEG Fabric can be applied to the majority of displays and the silicone edge makes it so that you see less frame and more graphic. 

To learn more about SEG Frames, be sure to check out our Experience Clemson Project.
