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!
Since SOLIDWORKS 2014 and beyond, eDrawings can animate rotated explode steps in an assembly exploded view. This blog covers the simple steps of adding a rotated step to an existing exploded view and viewing the animation in eDrawings. For this example, we have a flashlight assembly with an existing exploded view.
The Check Your System message is only supposed to pop up every 10th launch of SOLIDWORKS; however, we have seen reports saying that this happens more often and that the messages pop even though the latest supported graphics driver is installed. Our SOLIDWORKS Technical Support team is often asked, “How do I get rid of these SOLIDWORKS Resource Monitor pop-up messages? They keep coming up no matter what I do.”
SOLIDWORKS has recently migrated its customer data to a new business system. To streamline web logins, users will no longer sign in with a SOLIDWORKS ID but will transition to a 3DEXPERIENCE ID.
3DEXPERIENCE Platform 2023x FD03, was released on July 8, 2023 and with it came some great new enhancements. A complete list of updates will be linked below - this article features our top favorites.
Welcome to part three of our five-part series that provides guidance on optimizing your workstation purchase for different CAD workflows. This article will focus on Structural and Plastics Simulation. In each article, we discuss which components of the workstation are essential to that particular workflow and develop some sample configurations to help optimize your spending budget.
Traditional SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software installed on a desktop is no longer the only option. You may have heard other terms, such as 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS Connected. So, what are these new options, how do they differ, and most importantly, how do you choose? We'll break it all down here.
CATIA and SOLIDWORKS, both developed by Dassault Systèmes, are top-of-industry CAD tools able to perform a range of operations. However, there are certain workflows that are more easily performed using CATIA V5 or 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA rather than SOLIDWORKS. In this blog, we cover the functionalities CATIA excels at, including the handling of large assemblies, surfacing, systems engineering, and composites, while touching on some additional capabilities.
