Training

Professional CAD training is an indispensable part of your success.

Training can often be viewed as an unnecessary indulgence. It is all too easy to see the professional development of your staff as a cost rather than a benefit. The danger of that thinking is that it ignores the simple fact that your business is the sum of your employees, and your employees are the sum of their experience. If your employees are not performing at their best, the cost to your business is undeniable.

The benefits of CAD training:

  • Increased output
  • Decreased time spent on projects
  • Improved staff retention
  • Rapid induction of new staff
  • Mastery of new features
  • Leverage learning from experts

To ensure you are maximising the value of your staff, Central Innovation offers a huge variety of comprehensive training courses across the SOLIDWORKS, ARCHICAD, Artlantis, Solibri and DDS-CAD software suites.

Through our reseller software businesses, Intercad and GRAPHISOFT®, we can upskill designers and engineers at any stage of their professional development.

#TASK

Your very own SOLIDWORKS assistant

Imagine having your own personal SOLIDWORKS assistant, a powerful set of productivity tools that are equally helpful whether you’re new to SOLIDWORKS or an expert. Now you can, with its dynamic, continually updated library of advanced tools, #TASK [sharp task] automates those time consuming, repetitive jobs to free up more time for you to work on your designs. With its specially built job management software, #TASK monitors each job, automatically restarting SOLIDWORKS if needed and skipping any files that cannot be processed correctly. So unlike other task scheduling software, you won’t start a job overnight only to discover that a small problem halted all processing completely. So it’s now possible to process hundreds or even thousands of files in a single job, with each job consisting of multiple tasks.

Finally, #TASK allows you to write your own custom scripts, extending the standard macros functionality allowing passing custom arguments and return values. Read more in
this article:
Writing Custom #TASK Scripts

Our library is hosted online, with all processing performed locally on your own machine. But as the library is online, you will instantly see the updates as we add to the library. We’ve provided a feedback link so if you have an idea for a new task or need to contact us, let us know and if it’s something that we think will appeal to our user base, we’ll
add it for you.

#TASK has been developed by Central Innovation, the leading experts in SOLIDWORKS add-in application development. Every care has been taken in the preparation of both the #TASK application and its library, but please note that Central Innovation takes no responsibility of any loss or damage incurred through the use of #TASK. So please, back up your data if you haven’t done so already before running #TASK

Add/Delete Custom Property

Adding/removing/renaming custom or configuration specific property (type: Text ). Works with parts, assemblies, drawings. If the property with the same name is already present then it will be replaced.


Export Tables

Exports tables from file into an external format (CSV or TXT). Task allows to specify the output name template and folder for tables. It is possible to select tables by matching them to the specified name


Add Revision

Adding a row in revision table on active drawing sheet. If the revision table is not present then both table and the revision will be added. User should tick 'Run macro for each configuration' in #Task settings if revision is needed on each drawing sheet.


Update Design Table

Updating design table in SolidWorks part.


Remove Table

Removes tables which contain specified text. Task works with drawings only.


Replace Table Text

Replaces text in tables. Some cells might be not editable (e.g. Quantity in BOM). Task works with drawings only.


Dangling Dimensions

Generates a CSV report of dangling dimensions and/or removes them. Task works with drawings only.


Remove Note

Removes notes which matches specified criteria.


Activate Sheet

Activates specified drawing sheet by number or name. Do not use option 'Run Macro For Each Configuration' in #Task settings for this task.


Assign Apearance

Assigning appearance for SolidWorks parts and assemblies using '*.p2m' template. Appearance is assigned for active configuration only. User should tick 'Run macro for each configuration' in #Task settings if need to apply new appearance for the all configurations of the part


Modify Sheet Metal Thickness

Modify sheet metal thickness. Values must always be entered in document units. Value is changed only in top sheet metal feature.


Modify Sheet Metal Properties

Changing bend radius and/or K-factor in sheet metal parts. If some of the fields are not entered then that particular operation will not be performed; for instance, if NEW RADIUS was not entered but K-FACTOR was entered then only K-factor will be changed; Values must always be entered in millimetres, even if the part's units are not millimetres, however the part's units will be not be altered. (e.g. to increase a 0.1 radius by 0.01in choose the operation and value 0.254 (=25.5 x 0.01); as a result the new radius will be equal 0.11 in); macro is not case sensitive


Cut List Report

Generates raw report from cutlist table of the part (cutlist_report.csv). Can be used for geting data before producing drawings. All data is saved to a single CSV file. Recommended to set #Task settings to 'Open Read Only'


Change Document Units

Changing units in Solidworks files (parts, assemblies, drawings). If new unit system was not set to 'custom' then only first 3 fields should be entered; if some of the fields were not entered then that particular unit will not be changed


Generate Report of Volumes

Generates raw report from volumes of each body in part or assembly (VolumeReport.csv). Volume is measured in cubic millimetres. You can use it to find similar components/bodies by volume comparison, calculating overall volume or finding bodies without volume


Configuration Splitter

Saves the active configuration as a separate model. Parent model is not modified and not deleted. It is recommended to use option 'Open read only'. If user ticks 'Run macro for each configuration' in #Task settings then an individual model will be saved for each configuration. Task works with SolidWorks parts and assemblies.


Drawing Scale Report

Creating the report 'ScaleReport.csv' from the view scales for each sheet of the drawing. Between different sheets one blank row is added to improve the readability; between different drawings two blank rows are added to improve the readability; scales are shown both in ratio format and decimal format


Drawing Splitter

Saves active drawing sheet as a separate model. Parent drawing is not modified and not deleted. It is recommended to use option 'Open read only'. If user ticks 'Run macro for each configuration' in #Task settings then each drawing sheet will be saved as individual drawing. New drawing is saved in format: DrawingName_SheetName.SLDDRW.


Replace Sheet Format

Finds and replaces 'slddrt' templates in drawing sheets. User should tick option 'Run Macro For Each Configuration' in #Task settings so that macro is launched for each drawing sheet. Task allows to replace 5 templates at a time


Annotations Formatting

Changing font formatting (font, font style,height, effects) in all drawing annotations


Update And Save

Updates and saves SolidWorks files (parts, assemblies, drawings).


Publish Images

Publishes images of the models. The task allows exporting of photorealistic images. You can add a logo on top of the exported image. Logos also support transparency.


Import 3D

Import and save 3D models: step, igs, x_t, x_b, ifc, STL to SLDPRT or/and SLDASM. Files are stored in "#Task_Output" subfolder relative to specified path. User should untick option "background mode" in #Task settings for correct saving of the model. User should set SolidWorks general import setting to: "import multiple bodies as parts"


Save DWG/DXF

Save SolidWorks drawings to DWG or DXF


Generate Drawings

Generating drawing for SolidWorks parts or assemblies. If drawing template has predefined views then projection angle value will be ignored


Save PDF

Save SolidWorks document (part, assembly or drawing) to PDF or 3D PDF; User should untick option "background mode" in #Task settings if zooming is required


Export

Save SolidWorks model to one of the following formats: step, igs, x_t, x_b, ifc, STL, eprt, easm, 3dxml, prt, tif, sldprt, eDrawings. Can also be used to save assemblies as parts ( user should untick option "background mode" in #Task settings for correct saving of the model).


Save Bodies As Assembly

Saves bodies in multibody parts as individual parts and inserts them in newly created assembly. Task can propagate custom properties from multibody part to the newly created parts; it can also consume bodies in multibody parts. This task works well with task for export 3D (stl, parasolid, step...).


Assign Material

Sets material for SolidWorks parts. User should provide new material name and optionally material filter, configuration. Material filter allows to assign new material to only parts which already have certain material. Configuration allows to assign material to the whole part or certain configuration. The specified material must be available in the part's
material database.


Replace/Add Global Variable

Adding or replacing existing global variable. User should specify global variable value and name. If such global variable name is found then it's value will be replaced. Otherwise new global variable will be added. User can use as a value both specific numbers and formulas. New global variable is added for all configurations.


Export Flat Patterns

Exports all flat patterns from parts, multibody parts or assemblies to specified folder in DWG format. Bodies in parts should be recognized by SolidWorks as sheet metal bodies. Task allows specifying the custom naming template for the output files as well as sheet metal export options


Scaling Views/Sheets

Scaling drawing views or sheets to specified by user value. User should specify one of the values (Scale Views or Scale Sheet) in decimal or ratio format. If user ticks 'Run macro for each configuration' in #Task settings then each drawing sheet will be processed by task; otherwise only the active sheet will be processed.


Autoarrange Dimensions

Autoarrange dimensions on drawing sheets. Recomended to use after automatic dimensioning and automatic scaling. The result after using this task is the same as native 'Auto Arrange' command in SolidWorks menu: Tools\Align\Auto Arrange.


Rename Bodies From Custom Property

Rename all bodies in a part using value of cut list property or custom property. The task will search through cut-list properties first, if not found there, it will search document-level custom properties, and finally configuration-specific custom properties.


Insert Note

Inserting note in the specified coordinate on drawing sheet. This task can be used when user needs to insert the same note to multiple drawing sheets or multiple drawings (e.g. 'Approved', Date). Task allows to specify the starting coordinate for inserting notes and word wrapping width.


Add Area to Cut List Property

Adds "AREA" property to each cut-list item. Area is calculated from the two largest dimensions of bounding box of the cut list body. Dimensions are measured in square metres. Works for parts with cutlist only. The "AREA" property can be used by in a drawing cutlist table as additional source of information about bodies of the part.


Find Replace Text in Annotations

Finds the specified text in annotations in all views and title block in drawings and
replaces them


Add Angular Dimensions

Inserting angular dimensions for extreme edges in horizontal position for each view on drawing. Angular dimensions are inserted only for views created from parts; views made from assemblies are not dimensioned; the number of decimals of the dimension is controlled by document properties (Options/Document Properties/Units/Decimals); macro inserts dimensions even when those dimension are already present; isometric views are not dimensioned; in some cases dimensions cannot be calculated; dimensions are inserted in drawing units


Insert Breaks

Inserting breaks for each drawing view. Breaks are only inserted for views created from parts; views made from assemblies are not processed; breaks are not inserted for isometric views; if a view has referenced views then all their geometry will be taken into considerations while inserting breaks; breaks will be aligned with referenced views; macro inserts vertical breaks for horizontally aligned models and horizontal breaks for vertically aligned models; to have a break line inserted, the part should have have at the least geometry without any cuts or holes equal to its height (for horizontally aligned views) or its width (for vertically aligned views)


Insert Hole Dimensions

Inserting dimensions for holes (diameter and position) for each drawing view. Hole dimensions are inserted only for views created from parts; views made from assemblies are not dimensioned; the number of decimals of the dimension is controlled by document properties (Options/Document Properties/Units/Decimals); macro inserts dimensions even when those dimension are already present; isometric views are not dimensioned; holes with the same diameters are grouped together; threads are dimensioned by inner diameter; holes with chamfers dimensioned by inner(hole) and outer(chamfer) diameters; the position of the hole is dimensioned from top and left edges of the view; the group of holes with equal diameters have dimensions between holes; dimensions are inserted in drawing units


Insert Overall Dimensions

Inserts overall dimensions for each drawing view. The number of decimals of the dimension is controlled by document properties (Options/Document Properties/Units/Decimals); macro inserts dimensions even when those dimension are already present; isometric views are not dimensioned; dimensions are inserted using the original units of the drawing.


Copy Custom Properties

Copying custom properties from referenced by drawing parts to custom properties of
the drawing


Orientate To Isometric

  • IC3D hardware: productivity in a box

    "Just the speed alone of the machine has saved me countless hours of regen time. In one side-by-side test (my own non scientific test) the BOXX was 43% faster than a comparable workstation. This is a huge difference and a huge value. I have also found their support to be first class, above and beyond, (and in my opinion) second to none."
    Bryan Johnson | Licensed SOLIDWORKS customer for 12 years
  • IC3D hardware: productivity in a box

    "The designers in our Engineering Dept. love these workstations for their power, reliability, and speed. As the IT guy who sets up these machines for them, when a BOXX comes in, it's a clean setup and preparing it for use requires nothing more than configuring the network connection and installing the software your user needs."
    Peter Tournas | Laars Heating Systems Co.
  • Intercad: providing world class CAD design software

    "Intercad’s support and the early adoption of SOLIDWORKS was critical to our successful defence of the America’s Cup in 2000 in Auckland. We rely on our Official Suppliers to remain competitive, and Intercad, without question, provides us with a
    competitive advantage."
    Loren Poole | Mechanical Engineer, Emirates Team New Zealand
  • GRAPHISOFT® Australia: Australia’s only supplier of ArchiCAD

    "When it comes to technology, the key to our continues success has been the use of ARCHICAD in our projects since 1996. ARCHICAD wins in every aspect."

If you wish to access your personal information, please contact our Privacy Officer at privacy@centralinnovation.com.au, +61 2 9454 4444 or Units 1 & 4, Building 6, 49 Frenchs Forest Road East, Frenchs Forest, NSW 2086.
We will deal with all requests for access to personal information as quickly as possible. Requests for a large amount of information, or information which is not currently in use, may require further time before a response can be given.
We may charge you a reasonable fee for access if a cost is incurred by us in order to retrieve your information, but in no case will we charge you a fee for your application for access.
Whenever a fee will be applied, you will be notified of how that fee will be calculated, or where possible, the total amount that will be charged. You will then have the option to decide whether to proceed with your access request. In some cases, we will refuse to give you access to personal information we hold about you. This includes, but is not limited to, circumstances where denying access is required or authorised by or under an Australian law or a court/tribunal order or where giving you access would: be unlawful; have an unreasonable impact on other people's privacy; prejudice an investigation of unlawful activity; reveal our intentions in relation to negotiations with you so as to prejudice those negotiations; prejudice enforcement related activities conducted by, or on behalf of, an enforcement body; reveal evaluative information generated within the Central Innovation organisation in connection with a commercially sensitive decision-making process.
We will also refuse access where the personal information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings, and the information would not be accessible by the process of discovery in those proceedings. Further, we will refuse access where your request is frivolous or vexatious, and where we reasonably believe that: giving access would pose a serious threat to the life, health or safety of any individual, or to public health or public safety; unlawful activity, or misconduct of a serious nature, is being or may be engaged in against Central Innovation and giving access would be likely to prejudice the taking of appropriate action in relation to that matter.
If we refuse to give you access we will provide you with reasons for our refusal, unless doing so would be unreasonable in the circumstances. We will also take reasonable steps to give you access in a way that meets your needs without giving rise to the reasons of our refusal. Further, we will provide details of how you may make a complaint about our decision.
These mechanisms for accessing your personal information operate alongside, and do not replace, other informal or legal procedures by which you may be provided with access to your personal information.
Correction of your personal information
The accuracy of the personal information we have requested from you is important to us. Should you suspect, or become aware of, that your personal information we hold is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete or misleading, please contact our Privacy Officer at privacy@centralinnovation.com.au, +61 2 9454 4444 or Units 1 & 4, Building 6, 49 Frenchs Forest Road East, Frenchs Forest, NSW 2086.
We will deal with all requests for correction of personal information as quickly as possible. Requests relating to a large amount of information, or information which is not currently in use, may require further time before a response can be given.
If we refuse to change the personal information as you request, we will provide you with reasons for our refusal, unless doing so would be unreasonable in the circumstances. We will also provide details of how you may make a complaint about our decision. Further, in case of our refusal, you may request that we take reasonable steps to associate, with the relevant information, a statement that you view it as inaccurate, out of date, incomplete or misleading.
In the case we have corrected personal information about you, you may request that we take reasonable steps to give notice of the correction to any third party to which we have disclosed the inaccurate, out of date, incomplete or misleading personal information.
These mechanisms for correcting your personal information operate alongside, and do not replace, other informal or legal procedures by which you may be provided correction of your personal information.
Overseas transfer of personal information
It is not part of our standard procedure to disclose personal information to overseas recipients. However, if we have reason to transfer your personal information overseas, we will first seek your consent to do so, unless the disclosure of the information is required or authorised by or under an Australian law or a court/tribunal order.
Concerns and complaints about breaches
If you have concerns about how we handle your personal information, it is important that you notify us as soon as possible, so that we can address your concerns appropriately as the circumstances require. Any concern or complaint should be made in writing. Please send it to our Privacy Officer at privacy@centralinnovation.com.au, +61 2 9454 4444 or Units 1 & 4, Building 6, 49 Frenchs Forest Road East, Frenchs Forest, NSW 2086. We will respond as soon as reasonably possible. Alternatively you may contact the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner with your concern. Information about lodging a complaint is available on the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner’s website (see in particular: http://www.oaic.gov.au/privacy/privacy-complaints).
Disposal of personal information not required
If we hold personal information about you, and we do not need that information for any purpose for which the information may be used or disclosed, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify that information unless we are prevented from doing so by law.
