I purchased SolidWorks 2017 a few months ago and really like it! You can easily create smart models and drawings that make design changes a breeze! When I get stuck in complex smart setups tech support from GoEngineer has more than helpful. I couldn't be happier!
CAD Monkey Army now has a face and a logo!

If you closely you can see where the handle broke off of the rack and I'll have to beef it … Continue reading 3D Printed Ink Rack

So I removed the original plates, grabbed an image of her logo, and jumped into Fusion360 and came up with this design to print on my 3D printer! As with any new designs there are trial runs, which I benefit from 3D printing in house … Continue reading Custon Embossing Plates
