There are two ways to create Stress-Strain Curves in SOLIDWORKS Simulation, an “easy” way and a “custom” way. In this article, we will discuss each of those processes. Regardless of which method you use, the information gained can be inputted by the user for however many rows are needed using various unit types.

Sheet metal designs can be knocked out in SOLIDWORKS in very short order. The tools available are robust and simple to use. However, depending on the precision with which you need your parts manufactured, their ease of use can make it easy to overlook a key factor in accurate parts - the flat pattern. 


In my previous blog, I discussed how to identify the SOLIDWORKS products that you have, specifically Electrical, PDM, and connectors. If you are reading this article, then you have found that your company does have SOLIDWORKS Electrical Integration. In this article, I will review the steps that it takes to get your SOLIDWORKS Electrical Integration upgraded. There are steps that need to happen BEFORE you or PDM Administrator upgrades PDM on the server. 




Does your company have SOLIDWORKS PDM? Does your company use SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic? How about SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D? What about the Connector between SOLIDWORKS PDM and SOLIDWORKS Electrical? If your company has future plans to upgrade or move your software, here are some items to keep in mind.

GoEngineer's 3D printing division has been helping companies solve problems for longer than many people realize 3D printing has even existed. As a result, it's not uncommon to find people with 10, 15, or even 20+ years of 3D printing experience. This experience includes working with elementary schools and universities, hobbyists, and startups to the world's largest corporations.

The Design Library, located on the SOLIDWORKS Task Pane, is a set of folders populated with reusable entities, such as annotations, assemblies, forming tools, routing components, and features. In this article we will look at how to create a Library Feature; a set of features added to the Design Library for re-use in other models. 


I recently talked to a customer with validation concerns about an analysis - were the results and setup correct? With SOLIDWORKS Simulation and Simulation Professional, it is possible to verify the phenomenon of Thermal Expansion using Static Analysis tools. In this article, I'll compile the methods I used to diagnose and assist this customer's concern. 

There are several ways to save a SOLIDWORKS assembly as an STL file for 3D printing (some more tedious than others). Printing an assembly with all the components at once takes advantage of natural clearances between the components. Printing the components all at once using support material creates a fully built assembly with no need for fasteners.
