The leaves are changing colors, football is in full swing (American football that is), and turkeys are finding themselves on edge. It’s fall, SOLIDWORKS users, and, in my opinion, the best part of the fall season is the smell of pumpkin pie in the air. We’re celebrating the season by bringing you a 4 part series where we’ll be modeling this pumpkin pie spice jar, complete with a custom threaded cap, living hinge, and decal.

A year ago, I wrote an article about How to Dimension Silhouette Edges Using SOLIDWORKS MBD. This technique is often used to specify revolved bodies such as toruses in relief grooves, cones in chamfers, or shoulder heights on shafts and holes. Figure 1 below shows several examples in a detailed view of a shaft. Figure 1.

“Electronics” is a very generic word today. It wasn’t when I was growing up, but I did grow up in somewhat of an electronics revolution, as PCs and electronic toys made their exciting debut when I was a kid. I was fascinated by how adding electronics to everyday toys brought them to life in a way I had never imagined possible. Today, that evolution continues.

Our planet’s population is increasing. People are everywhere – and they all need to be somewhere else. As a result, mass transport is becoming a problem, as big as the exceeding populations themselves. The question is less about where we go from here and more about how we get there.

It’s that time of year, the kids have just head back to school and they are growing like weeds! In an effort to teach the kids a bit more independence, we are designing and 3D printing a custom juice dispenser so they can serve themselves in a fun and easy way. Throughout this 3-part series, we’ll run through some basic modeling techniques in SOLIDWORKS. We’ll give a few pointers for splitting up and printing larger parts on desktop 3D printers, and we’ll hit the workshop to assemble and finish

SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 introduces a new study type, the Topology Study, which enables designers and engineers to develop innovative minimum mass components. Based upon linear static loads and restraints, the topology study will ‘remove’ elements from the finite element mesh until the target mass or best stiffness-to-weight ratio shape is reached. This iterative process of element removal is limited by the study constraints such as maximum allowable deflection and any manufacturing controls.

Have you ever dreamed of taking a longboard and walking to the water’s edge, as waves crash against your feet, gazing out watching the swells gather and other surfers paddle to catch the perfect wave, wishing you could do that too? Maybe, like me, the dream was much better than the reality. Make no mistake, I’m not a klutz by nature, but standing up on that surfboard lasted all of two seconds while I took in a mouthful of salt water, realizing I was no closer to actually catching that perfect

Before SPEE3D, metal 3D printing had a historical problem of being both too slow and too expensive. Today, the industry has dramatically changed due to SPEE3D’s new process known as supersonic 3D deposition (SP3D). The company is focused on making manufacturing easier by providing the freedom and flexibility to build parts at a cost and speed suitable for the field. SPEE3D is an expert on manufacturing aluminum and copper parts and their world first, industrial 3D printer allows manufacturers to

Communication between the part designer and mold designer is crucial to keep the tool design and build on schedule. Increasing emphasis on concurrent part and tool design makes the associability with the part model data more significant than ever for faster reaction in the event of design changes. See picture below showing the new design methods using SOLIDWORKS. In the result of a drastic modification to the part, the mold designer should be informed immediately so they can evaluate the

A costly part of manufacturing fabricated designs (designs made up of components that are welded, glued and even put together with fasteners) is creating the fixtures that are used to hold the parts in positioning during fabrication. Because of this, many designers and manufacturers have turned to designs that include “self-fixturing” features that allow the assembly to be held together without the need for external fixturing and tooling. To accomplish this, many people use the “tab and slot”
