Design Reuse Instead of Re-Create
July 30, 2014 - 1:00pm-1:45pm
We'll be demonstrating Altium’s capabilities around Design Reuse. Discussion will include Snippets, Device Sheets, Templates, Replicated Hierarchy with Repeat function and simple copy and paste.  All of these functions are available within the standard Altium Designer package and will be demonstrated by our Certified Altium FAE. If you’re not reusing circuitry within your designs, this webinar is for you. If you are unfamiliar with Device Sheets, Templates or Snippets, this webinar is also for you. This is a great opportunity to learn more about Altium and get more out of your design team.

Introduction to SOLIDWORKS 3D Mechanical CAD
August 26, 2014 - 10:00am - 11:00am
In this webinar, we’ll take a look at how SOLIDWORKS can provide a complete solution to help you create more powerful and accurate designs in less time.  We’ll show you how easy SOLIDWORKS 3D modeling software is to use, and will demonstrate how to create detailed production quality parts, assemblies, and drawings. You'll also learn about utilizing FEA (Finite Element Analysis) through SOLIDWORKS Simulation to ensure your designs will stand up to their vigorous real-world requirements before you even reach the prototype stage. Finally, we’ll teach you how to more accurately track your revisions and workflows, and generate assembly instructions concurrently with the design process, saving you from tedious rework once the design is finalized.
