Explosions: great if you’re watching a James Bond film, potentially lethal everywhere else. As such, industries who work with the potential for detonation need scientific assurance that the companies supplying their equipment are up to the task. Specialist manufacturing company The Ex Zone design and build an extensive range of explosion-proof hazardous area equipment to a worldwide client base, including the oil, petrochemical, gas and chemical industries.

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,

Are you tired of getting the same old bouquet of roses for that special someone in your life? We suggest our fellow SOLIDWORKS users try something a little different by modeling this rose for that special someone. It will be a gift that shouts, “Hey, I care about you so much that I learned SOLIDWORKS Surface modeling just for you. And like my love for you, this version of the rose will last forever.”

Hernan Malleret, an industrial designer from Buenos Aires in Argentina, is a self taught SOLIDWORKS user. He started using the software in 1997 and was able to self-learn the program because of its user-friendly interface he says. Starting with designing plastic pieces, Hernan discovered how SOLIDWORKS allowed him to develop his work in a more precise manner. “It is very intuitive”, he tells us.

Contour selection options allow individual contours to be selected within a sketch. By making use of contour selection techniques, a single sketch can be used to produce multiple features. Use the Contour Select Tool to pre-select contours for a feature. Use the Selected Contours options for a feature to define areas of a sketch to use. Use a single sketch to generate multiple features. Understand the icons displayed when using selected contours and sharing sketches.
