One item that is always high on the priority list of development is assembly performance. Every SOLIDWORKS release we see new functionality coming available, like Large Design Review and SpeedPak in the past. But not everything can be solved with options like these, sometimes an engineer needs to model parts with less detail, so the overall assembly performance remains high. In SOLIDWORKS 2018 the Assembly Performance Evaluation tool is expanded, so you can better understand which parts should

Hey there SOLIDWORKS Community! We’re excited to bring you this 3-part series where we are honoring one of the founding members of the Justice League of America, The Flash, by modeling his iconic mask in SOLIDWORKS. The Flash mask has a unique, organic form so we are going to model it around some reference images using mostly surface features.

From avoiding a trampling at a crowded big box store to enduring awkward conversations with your eggnog-fueled uncle and outlasting an impossibly long line for your kids to cry on Santa’s lap, surviving the holidays is no small feat. Don’t go patting yourself on the back just yet though – there’s still that task of finding the perfect Christmas tree, full and free of wildlife. Of course everyone has an opinion on the perfect tree and such a discussion was had here in the US DS HQ, and in cases

Mit der neuen Topologiestudie in SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 gibt es jetzt eine innovative und kostensparende Lösung, die es Konstrukteuren und Ingenieuren ermöglicht, bei der Entwicklung leistungsfähiger, innovativer und gewichtsoptimierter Produkte völlig neue Wege zu gehen. Basierend auf linear statischen Lasten und Randbedingungen entfernt die Topologiestudie so lange Elemente aus dem Finite-Elemente-Netz, bis die Zielmasse oder die Form erreicht ist, bei der das Verhältnis von Steifigkeit

SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 introduit un nouveau type d’étude, l’étude de topologie, qui permet aux concepteurs et aux ingénieurs de développer des composants plus légers et innovants. En se basant sur les blocages et chargements, l’étude de topologie « retirera » des éléments du maillage par éléments finis jusqu’à ce que la masse cible ou le meilleur rapport rigidité/poids soit atteint. Ce processus itératif de suppression d’éléments est limité par les contraintes de l’étude, telles que la

With each annual release, SOLIDWORKS looks to streamline their tools to make the designer more productive. One of the most commonly used tools is the Measure Tool! We can use it to measure the lengths of edges, determine the distance between planes and surfaces, and even calculate the surface area, among many other applications. In 2018, SOLIDWORKS made it even better.

O SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 introduz um novo tipo de estudo, o Estudo de Topologia, que permite aos projetistas e engenheiros desenvolver componentes inovadores de massa mínima. Com base em cargas estáticas lineares e restrições, o estudo de topologia “removerá” elementos da malha de elementos finitos até que a massa de destino ou a melhor forma de relação rigidez-peso seja alcançada. Este processo iterativo de remoção do elemento é limitado pelas restrições de estudo, por exemplo, a deflexão

Hi everybody, I am currently working on MatLab-SolidWorks and I found that the code for creating a surface/fill is not working but I really need it. It's working for the extrusion operation, but when I save the macro for the function Surface/Fill, there is nothing. Look at the picture attached.

As is tradition, we'd like to promote people getting together for running/walking at SOLIDWORKS World 2018. Let's use this thread to coordinate who is interested, where we should meet, etc. Since SWW is at the same location as last year, I'll use the same information as last year to plan this year.

I have been trying to write a macro to update custom properties but am stuck because I have some properties that only exist at the Custom level and not in configurations. When using the AddCustomInfo3 method I see it is possible to specify the destination configuration but in this case I'm not sure what that is or if it even exists. If I leave it blank i.e.

I am trying to cobble together a macro to replace our revision table template on existing drawings and then reenter the old revision information. The problem arises when the macro reaches the point of editing the cells in the freshly inserted table. In the attached macro 'replaceRevisionTableTest' it appears to edit the cells in the table with the new data but once ForceRebuild3 is called the edits vanish. If I then run the attached macro 'onlyModifyRevTable' with nearly identical code it
