Ultimate Import Geometry Optimization for Large Assemblies

April 25, 2024 10:00 AM America/New_York

Files imported from STEP and other neutral formats can generate significant slowdowns when used in your assemblies. It is true that SOLIDWORKS has multiple tools dedicated to fixing errors and simplifying complex geometry, but used on their own they produce only incremental improvements.

To be successful in optimizing such files, we should employ a streamlined methodology involving multiple tools to preserve only what is relevant for their assemblies. This presentation is based on a real-life case study of a complex imported assembly that generated a severe slow-down when inserted in the top-level assembly. The user no longer had access to the original STEP file. The geometry had many errors. The level of detail was high and none of the typical optimization tools like SpeedPak, Defeature, Simplify produced the expected improvements.

Join us as TriMech Senior Process and Training Consultant, Alin Vargatu tells us if this story has a happy ending or not and learn a unique procedure that will enable you to overcome the most complex import geometry problems.

In this webinar, you will learn: 

  • Preserving what is relevant for large assemblies
  • Overcoming slowdowns
  • Working with an inaccessible original STEP file
