Quick Imported Geometry Optimization Techniques for Use in Large Assemblies 

Have you ever needed to use a complex model originating from a large STEP or IGES file in a large SOLIDWORKS assembly? Let us show you how to reduce the time required to open it as well as how to eliminate the operational lag when working with that assembly.

About This On-Demand Webinar

TriMech Senior Training and Process Consultant, Alin Vargatu, demonstrates how to simplify these large models in a controlled manner, allowing you to decide what details should be preserved and which should be removed. The positive impact on your productivity is a game changer. Alin helps you discover how to use unrelated tools inside SOLIDWORKS to speed up the optimization process. For example, who would have thought that using the yellow color as an appearance could make such a big difference?

In this webinar, Alin discusses:

  • Learn how to identify and measure the potential slowdown impact a large imported geometry model can have on a large assembly
  • Colors are you best friends in a user-controlled simplification process of imported geometry
  • Do not use the Delete Face command, unless you are fully aware of its impact on performance
