In this blog, I highlight several handy techniques for creating and managing changes to an assembly created as a multi-body part in SOLIDWORKS instead of the traditional “bottom-up” method to design the overall assembly.
Have you ever upgraded SOLIDWORKS and started receiving file location errors? Maybe your templates are invalid, or you see instead of the diameter symbol? These issues are due to the reference file locations looking in the wrong location, most likely an old installation folder.
When given the incredible opportunity to present at 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020, we shared how we used SOLIDWORKS to design golf equipment, how simulation can validate design theories, and AI or Topology Optimization could change the way golf putters look.
Trailing zeroes can be customized for Dimensions, Tolerances, and Properties. This setting is available in parts, drawings, and assemblies and is found in Tools>Options>Document Properties>Dimensions>Zeroes>Trailing Zeroes.
There are some limitations when dealing with complex setups, but the results would match if you ran SimulationXpress studies in SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard. We’ll look at some of the differences further in this blog.
While working on projects in SOLIDWORKS, I sometimes find myself in a situation where I’m creating multiple parts that combine to make a whole. Over the course of my experiences, I have seen a few approaches to this.
Having trouble getting your high pressure die casting simulation to mesh in Altair Inspire Cast? The problem may be in long, thin geometric features. Specifically, vents.
Getting started in Altair Inspire Cast? In this blog series, we share eight tips and tricks that will make getting started a little easier.
Kinetic Art Project: Using SOLIDWORKS and Casting Fins
Thank you for returning to my Kinetic Art Project series. In this final segment of the series, I’ve used SOLIDWORKS to check for mass properties and documented the process for casting the
Thank you for returning to my Kinetic art project series. Today’s blog is focused on creating a worm gear. Check out part 1 and 2 to catch up!
Creating gears in SOLIDWORKS can be intimidating especially for the first time. Thankfully SOLIDWORKS Toolbox does most of the hard work for you. Learn more.
Hyper threading can significantly improve performance for some tasks, but it can also be detrimental to others. To thread or not to thread? Find out here.
Are you new to SOLIDWORKS PCB or using SOLIDWORKS PCB with out of the box symbols and foot prints? If you want to make your own schematic symbols for your schematic drawings and 2D/3D footprints for the PCB. Where do you start?
If you order 3D printing supplies in bulk or for future use, you may find yourself storing them in a box on a shelf or in the drawer of the 3D printer. There has to be a better place, right? See what I came up with for print head storage in this 3D printing hack.
SOLIDWORKS has some awesome part modeling tools. In this blog, we share four of our favorites that are proven to be time saving and easy to use.
