Doron Sashkis, CEO of Albitech, presented on the uses and benefits of Solidworks-IG to designers. The session included a live demonstration on how the new Solidworks add,on, Solidworks-IG, which may also be used in a typical business environment, providing dimension-driven design change tracking.
Afterward, the Albitech booth was busy throughout the event as staff demoed Solidworks-IG technology to designers and engineers. "Many of people who visited our booth were interested in how Solidworks-IG's "Dimension Changes History Tree" feature provides them with information on all dimensions that have been modified throughout the design process," said Sashkis.
Designers can take advantage of Solidworks-IG by clicking on inspectiongeni.com to download the application. Alternatively they may place an order by contacting the Albitech support team email mailto:Info[.]albitech.org.
"Today, designers who use SolidWorks-IG are able to observe a measurable savings in terms of time and frustration when they have to communicate with manufacturing or QA departments," said Sashkis.
"It was important for us to be able to show designers how SolidWorks-IG empowers them by automatically producing the project’s dimension ID’s, which cuts across the lifecycle and version changes of the project. With the dimension ID’s and history module, designers are now able to promptly and accurately respond to any changes or inquiries.
The simultaneous presentations illustrated how IG's technology can benefit engineers by providing the Inspection Drawing with Balloon ID's and reports along with documentation for "First Article Inspection" and for In-Process Inspection according to SA9010 standards.
"We wanted to maximize our opportunity to ensure event attendees would gain a practical orientation to the operational benefits of SolidWorks-IG, including the ability to automatically generate inspection sheets and drawings with dimensional IDs and archives, interactively review changes made to every drawing created using SolidWorks, accelerate approval cycles, enhance quality and integrity, and lower costs associated with content archiving and audits," he said.
Innovation Day India
Speaking from India, Sridhar M C, product manager at SolidWorks VAR, Best Engineering Aids & Consultancies (BEACON), said the Solidworks' Innovation day saw over 300 registered attendees visit the exhibition in Bangalore, and over 100 signed up to participate in the Inspection Geni breakout session. "This was Inspection Geni's debut on the Indian subcontinent and the audience expressed a high level of interest in the product, and the Dimension History Tracking feature in particular," he said.
"SolidWorks designers in India see this as a very good option as it allows them to track the changes made to all dimensions for review in Microsoft Excel format which previously took a lot of time when using Product DM.
According to Sridhar, Indian designers were very impressed with the IG BallOOn-It freeware download: "Prospective customers showed great interest in this as it can solve their interdepartmental communication errors and help them to easily locate dimensions with Dimension ID’s.
