“Reality Redesigned” Visits Solidworks

Watch the first episode of "Reality Redesigned" presented by "The Edge Factor Show."



“Reality Redesigned” is a design contest/reality show presented by “The Edge Factor.” Students and bike enthusiasts submit designs for original mountain bike components they’d like to see manufactured. Judges involved in various aspects of design, prototyping and production will evaluate these submissions. “Edge Factor” host Jeremy Bout is now meeting with each of the judges, and in the course of doing this, he is essentially touring the process by which an idea moves from conception through to production. Here is the first stop in which Jeremy talks about a very early step—geometric modeling—during a visit to Solidworks. 


  • Tool Path Strategies For High Speed Machining

    CAD/CAM features can be key to realizing effective High Speed Machining.

  • The Costs and Benefits of Horizontal Machining

    The shift from vertical to horizontal machining was even more expensive than this shop anticipated. It was also more valuable. Most of the shop’s machining centers are HMCs now—here’s why.

  • Interpolating Curves

    The ability to import complex curves into CNCs promises to let shops finally get beyond old limitations imposed by contouring with linear interpolation. Faster and smoother cutting will be the result.
