Few things can be more frustrating than trying to use a tool and not having it available. Since a SOLIDWORKS Stand Alone license can only be active on one computer at a time, deactivating and reactivating is needed in order to use a different machine. Starting with SOLIDWORKS 2018 SP2.0, Online Licensing allows users to log in each time they start the software, from different machines and thus not need to transfer the activation each time. Active subscription is required for this to work.
This Three Minute Thursday video will go over how to switch a license to use this new feature. The account administrator needs to change the license to Online Licensing and then assign that license to the user. The user needs to modify his/her installation to login and start using the online licensing feature. This needs to be done on each machine the user plans to use.

Join us for a look at SOLIDWORKS Visualize – an easy to use professional rendering solution that produces truly stunning photoreal content. In this webinar we’ll walk through the process from the very beginning to the final output. We’ll start with a great CAD model and finish with an incredible rendering that anyone can accomplish quickly.
Today, we are sharing some of our most popular advertising displays, Feather Flags. Feather Flags are known to help with visibility, making locations easier to spot for customers. They are also great for driving traffic to store openings and events such as trade shows and sporting events. These displays can be used both indoor and outdoor. As you can see in the photos below, The Color Lab placed them in cross base stands so that they can stand on solid ground as well. Promotional flags are the perfect messenger for any business, creating a walk way of promotions.

From concept to fully assembled parts, this video walks you through the steps taken to generate a great custom design of desk brackets. This project was a great application for the new capability to optimize material usage (topology study). For a more in-depth look at this great new functionality check out this Three Minute Thursday.
