Before we get started, it is critical to know that clearing your CAMWorks registry is generally a troubleshooting last resort. We take some caution in this article, but being informed is essential. It is possible to put yourself in an unfortunate situation by poking around in your registry, so please don’t experiment while doing this.


SOLIDWORKS Electrical May 24, 2023

Within SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic, custom line types can be added and applied to wire styles, layers, and cable styles. To create or add line types, within the project template, go to the Project tab > Configurations Drawing style… If you do not have a drawing style associated with your project, select either imperial or metric style, and select Add to project.

DSLS (Dassault Systèmes Licensing Service) is a cloud-hosted licensing service that removes the need for a dedicated physical machine to act as the licensing server. The service is managed entirely by Dassault Systèmes and requires almost no intervention by you, the user, or an IT team. 

Ever-increasing computing capabilities have allowed program developers to incorporate the fundamental engineering equations describing fluid flow into fast and accurate CFD simulation programs. CFD results allow virtual comparison of multiple design ideas and examination of the tradeoffs. In the process, the number of prototypes needed to achieve an acceptable design can be significantly reduced.

The world of dental prosthetics is on the cusp of a significant transformation, all thanks to Stratasys, a global leader in polymer 3D printing solutions. Stratasys recently unveiled an innovative product set to redefine the way dental laboratories approach the fabrication of dentures: TrueDent™. This groundbreaking 3D printed denture technology is primed to address the increasing challenges faced by dental laboratories in catering to the growing prosthetic needs of edentulous patients.

Over the years, GoEngineer customers have asked Technical Support how to change the orientation of a part file created in SOLIDWORKS. This tutorial explains a couple of ways to do this on a feature-based model. The best method we have found to change the orientation of an existing SOLIDWORKS part is using the Orientation dialog box.

CAMWorks has four different licensing options: Dongle, Standalone, FlexLM Network, and FNO. These four license options are all used through the CW License Manager utility. To access this utility, go to the Start menu and search for the CW License Manager


The total solve time for a SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation project is influenced by several factors, such as total cell count, project parameters, heat transfer effects, and convergence goals, to name a few. Let’s focus on what is possible by comparing total solve time for three different CFD projects on a variety of workstations.


Mesh convergence is often overlooked when running SOLIDWORKS frequency analysis. In this tutorial, we cover what results frequency analysis gives the user as well as how increasing or decreasing the mesh density in the analysis can change the given results of the program. We also briefly cover how using draft-quality mesh instead of high-quality mesh can affect SOLIDWORKS frequency analysis results.
