When it comes time to upgrade to a new version of SOLIDWORKS, it is recommended that all the data from the previous versions be upgraded to the current version. This task can easily be automated with SOLIDWORKS Task Scheduler. This tool is included with all versions of SOLIDWORKS. Files last saved in SOLIDWORKS 2013 or newer can be selected and then schedule a time when the computer is not being used so the software can perform these tasks. Thousands of files can be converted overnight. That is not all; Task Scheduler has many other tools, such as Update files, to analyze how an upgrade would affect the files, Create Drawings or eDrawings, Update Simulation results and Render and Animation. Make sure you take advantage of this time-saving tool.

Join us for our latest webinar, From CAD to 3D Printing with Markforged.

Any manufacturing process is only as good as the tooling and fixturing used within it. Fabricating these critical components doesn’t have to take weeks, cost hundreds or thousands of dollars, or made in metal. Investing in an industrial 3D printing technology to produce custom manufacturing aids and workholdings for your production line can help you to avoid costly delays and downtime.
