FDM 3D printed parts have a range of applications, from functional prototypes to end-use parts, but they can also be quite valuable on a shop floor, serving as fixtures and assembly aids. When rolling out new product lines or getting new staff up to speed, they can help bridge a knowledge gap to save time and money.
In this article, we discuss how to add a coefficient of drag goal into a flow simulation project. Derived from the principle of Bernoulli’s equation, SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation can help us obtain this value quickly by utilizing our setup parameters.
Getting an Inspection drawing set up so that the inspector can clearly interpret it is vital. One way SOLIDWORKS Inspection can help is by creating sub-balloons. In this tutorial, we explain how to do so in the Standalone interface.
In DriveWorks, users can group multiple projects into one top-level project. Certain projects lend themselves to grouping small child projects into one large project. For example, if I wanted a project for a layout of conveyor belts, I could have one project for one conveyor section, and then the layout project could contain multiple conveyor section projects and verify they all had the same width so that they would be compatible.
SOLIDWORKS has many useful keyboard shortcuts and key bindings to speed up the modeling process and increase efficiency when working in the software. In this blog, learn about 11 CTRL key shortcuts in SOLIDWORKS you can start using today.
When I decided to redo my backyard, there were a few goals I wanted to accomplish: pour more concrete, replace the grass, and build a garden box. So, I started modeling my design plans in SOLIDWORKS. My initial goal was to confirm how much space there was to incorporate the new features and then determine where to place them - but I was able to use my model for much more than that!
Stereolithography is a 3D printing method that utilizes a laser to cure a photosensitive resin. Engineers, designers, and manufacturers use it to craft detailed prototypes, intricate models, and functional parts with high accuracy and smooth surface finishes. The Neo series from Stratasys represents a game-changing advancement in stereolithography technology that redefines the user experience.
