BOXX “Break Up” Video Contest, Will Award New Workstation

BOXX Technologies, the leading innovator of high-performance workstations and rendering systems, today announced that they will award a new APEXX 2 overclocked workstation to the winner of a BOXX-sponsored video contest entitled “Break Up.” Timed to coincide with Valentine’s Day but continuing until March 20, 2015, the international contest requires users of competing workstations and PCs to submit a sixty second video detailing why they would like to break-up with their current system and “fall in love with BOXX.”

BOXX-BreakUp

It’s a fun contest, but educational as well,” said Chris Morley, BOXX Senior Product Marketing Manager. “We’re asking users to document on video how their current computer is negatively impacting their workflow and what a new APEXX 2 could mean for their business. We expect a lot of funny, creative, and informative submissions, with the winner receiving a new APEXX 2.”

Featuring an overclocked, four-core, 4.5Ghz Intel Core i7 processor, professional NVIDIA Quadro graphics card, and 240GB Solid State Drive, the compact, liquid-cooled, APEXX 2 is ideal for Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, Revit, and Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS, as well as other frequency bound software applications.

In a light-hearted commercial, BOXX asks creative professionals if they are in an “unhealthy relationship” with their workstation, and in keeping with the failed romance theme, adds, “If your system is slow, unresponsive, and lacking in support, it’s dragging you down. You’re frustrated, constantly fighting about the same old problems, and of course, you have trust issues. The romance is over and there’s no room for compromise in this relationship.” Submissions, judged by a panel of BOXX experts, will be evaluated on “creativity, ingenuity, and style.” Within sixty days of receiving their new BOXX workstation, the contest winner will also have an opportunity to win a 24” Samsung SC450 Series LED monitor by submitting a sixty second follow-up video demonstrating how the new APEXX 2 workstation has accelerated his/her workflow and increased productivity.

Break Up contest submissions must be received before March 20, 2015 with the winner being announced on March 31, 2015. For contest rules and details, visit www.boxxtech.com/breakup.

The ABC of Weldment Profiles in SOLIDWORKS

 

ABC of Weldment Profile

I’ve seen lot many times people asking about the folder structure for weldment profiles in SOLIDWORKS. The folder structure for weldment profile is simply ABC.

ABC of Weldment Profile

A is the path for the folder that contains the Standard. For e.g. D:\Design Library\Weldments
B is the path for the folder that contains the Types. For e.g. D:\Design Library\Weldments\Inch
C is the path for the folder that contains the Sizes. For e.g. D:\Design Library\Weldments\Inch\10×20.SLDLFP

Weldment-ABC-3

So when setting up the weldment profile location, you need to set the location of A under Tools > Options > System Options > File Locations > Weldment Profiles
