Does anyone know a good online resource to find practice problems for the CSWP? Have you tried the sample test available from SolidWorks Certification?

It's pretty simple. Online licensing is completely useless if you need to also use old versions of SW to support clients. This is a good question, I guess online licensing only support SW2018 onwards.

When I try to go to the dropdown menu everything is grayed out except the "Smart Dimension tool" I have tried several things but can not figure out why this is happening. Any one have any ideas or solutions? Tags:none(add)mating menu

Right now I want to build my own robot arm. I have done the most part of robot arm. The only problem is that when I insert my gripper to the top level assembly, the gear mate doesn't work. The left and right sides of gripper seem to be locked and two pieces will rotate towards the same direction rather than the opposite direction.

I built a robot arm and want to use it in ROS(robotic operating system). The problem right now I have is the gear mate works in SW but failed after urdf file loaded in ROS. The two sides of gripper will rotate towards the same direction rather than the opposite direction when I adjust the value of the corresponding motor.

I need to create non-circular holes (like squre, rectangular, rectangular with fillets on the corners, etc), to be pulled out on the hole table the same way we do with circular holes. Is there some way we can combine holes B1 and F1 (with the description square □ 10x10 (in red)), for example.

In PDM Pro I'm trying to set the group level warning 'Check-in' option 'File Name is not unique' so that my users do not inadvertently check in an object with a name that already exists in the database. I need to do this instead of using the 'No Duplicates Allowed' global setting due to other corporate entities allowing duplicates to be made. I have the option set, but it doesn't stop the check-in of files named exactly the same. Does anyone know why this would occur?

So I think my parts are injection molding ready. However, when I do normal draft analysis on the base part on 'gradual transition' at 1 degree, it comes out fine (see picture). But when I do the draft analysis when creating 'Parting Line' it has yellow sections along the ribs (which are there to support the lid in place and not for structural purposes).

I am trying to do a drawing and every other time I go to save my work (ctrl S) SWX will crash. Is there anything I can do about this. Are you trying to get it to crash every time, instead of every other time?

I have been running my one man Design Consultancy for almost 20 years now, providing mechanical design services to a wide range of companies in the areas of vending machines, gas and solid fuel heating appliances and commercial refrigeration equipment. I love Engineering and also love to make things. As a Designer, I've mostly had to write the story to guide others to make things which can be frustrating when you see people butchering your work !

I just want to see if anyone else is having issues with theForum home screen on my.solidworks.com. I had the issue in the past and it was something on SolidWorks end. So I want to make sure that they are aware.

I am a beginner using SW Flow Simulation, unfamiliar with this software. I would like to design a venturi tube mixing water with air, and simulate the air suction because of the pressure drop in the throat section. This is my simulation, but I would like to know how air and water mix separately...... according to previous comments, it seems that this software can't model the mixing interface between air and water.

help about materials etc. hello everyone, my friend and i have to do a school project with solidworks and try to invent or improve something that will make everyday life easier. we've thought about making a boiling pot and put a draining hall on the side of it, near the bottom so you can drain liquids from it in case you are making pasta or something of this sort. i wanted to ask you what do you think will be the best way to try and create such thing and what materials would you make the parts

Probe results is a great functionality in simulation, but it's not available on context sensitive help in flow simulation. It is available in menu (tools - flow simulation - result - probe mode).
