My name is Rob and as anyone that knows me well will tell you, I have a problem with Raspberry Pis. They are my uncontrollable addiction and I cannot get enough. I currently have six of them with plans for more in the near future; if I see a used one for sale, I have to have it.

On May 20th and 21st, 1927 Charles Lindbergh, aka “Lucky Lindy”, made history by completing the first solo, nonstop, transatlantic flight; piloting his monoplane, the Spirit of St. Louis, from Long Island, New York to Paris, France. To celebrate the anniversary of Lindy’s achievement we’re showing SOLIDWORKS users how to model a 30” wingspan version of his iconic aircraft. Throughout this series, we’ll fly through lessons on how to work off imported images, and we’ll use a series of extrusions,

Welcome to the final part of our 5 Part series where we are celebrating the Anniversary of Charles Lindbergh’s historic feat by modeling his Spirit of St. Louis monoplane. We’ll pick up where we left off in part 4 with a nearly completed half of the aircraft and we’ll begin adding some of the aircraft’s details using some essential modeling techniques, as well as a few advanced techniques like the Circular Pattern command. We will wrap up this part of the series by flying through how to add

When setting up an analysis in SOLIDWORKS Simulation, we typically think of applying forces or other loads and calculating the resulting stresses and displacements as our outputs. However, in situations where the forces may not be known, an expected displacement can effectively be used as the “load” input to the analysis. This is known as a Prescribed Displacement and is available under the External Loads drop-down.

Phillips Brewing and Malting Company is a small-batch craft brewery in Victoria, British Columbia producing amazing beers since 2001. Known for crafting a wide variety of brews to satisfy any palate, Phillips is a standout example of the global independent brewing revival. From the moment you check out its colorful website and peruse its unique offerings, such as Space Goat (dry-hopped oat pale ale) and Electric Unicorn (white IPA), you know this isn’t a 1990s craft beer.

Increasingly customers now expect new products to be intelligent, and often connected to the internet through Bluetooth or wireless, from the Nest thermostat in the home to manufacturing facilities. In fact, Gartner predicts that the total number of “things” or connected devices will reach 20.4 billion by 2020. In response, companies are looking to be the first in their respective industries to have their product include intelligence and/or connectivity.

Saving large assemblies as an eassembly not working well. When opening eassembly to view assembly, it is very slow opening, and when it does open, its almost impossible to move it around screen. It moves really slow, or just really jerky. I am running Solidworks 2016.

First, I am using 2017 SP2.0 (installed 3.0EV yesterday to see if it would solve the problem - no luck) and we are running Win 7. I have a moderately sized assembly (4000 parts) that is giving me some erratic behavior when creating a drawing. The majority of the assembly is a reference sub-assembly, 25 of the total parts are not of the sub-assembly.

I've experienced this with many different parts imported from many different sources. For example, I've downloaded a number of STEP files from 80/20's online catalog of fittings. Each time, I convert these STEP files to Solidworks parts. I use the automatic feature recognition, which usually works.

I would like to create a macro which saves an active assembly as separate dxf files of each of the standard views, but not current or ISOs. To do this manually, I have to first save the assembly as a part, then save the part as a dxf and check some boxes. The dxf folder is a sub folder of the active file location called "SW DXFs". I have found two macros, both written by Deepak Gupta, but I'm having trouble combining them as I have a very small knowledge of VBA.

When we use connectors that are a housing with their terminals sold separately, we need to track those two items separately in inventory. Other than manually entering additional lines in my BOM list in the drawing, I can't figure out a good way to include my contacts as separate line items. Does anyone else have a good system for including the contacts for each connector in their BOM?
