“Simple things seem to derive the most pleasure from everyone” – Corporal Willy Corporal Willy with a Epilog 120 Watt Laser The very first time we tried doing a 3D carving, we took just two pieces of scrap wood and glued them together. I looked for two pieces that were not cracked or had any knots or other irregular surface features to them. However, as the machine finished the carving, a knot showed up right at the end of the Wolf’s nose. Rob made this one on a laser machine for a friend’s

Fettuccine Pasta Bridge Richard first came up with the idea of constructing a bridge using fettuccine pasta, while pushing a shopping cart alongside his wife, Carmy, at a supermarket. As Carla stopped in the aisle stacked with a variety of pastas, Richard carefully observed the different types of pastas, appreciating the uniformity inside of the packaging. He recalls thinking, “To try and make something like that would be very difficult to say the least. I could not wait to get SOLIDWORKS up and

FEA results in eDrawings on iPad This week I was talking to my colleague, Delphine Genourvrier, about ways SOLIDWORKS applications can be used together to make student capstone design projects and competition presentations easier to explain. Delphine reminded me on how SOLIDWORKS Simulation results and eDrawings can be used together – making it easy to communicate an idea quickly to teammates, professors and judges. Here is Delphine’s story: How to Easily Democratize Simulation Results By

A render of the iPhone 5 with a plastic case created in SolidWorks iPhone 5 with a Plastic Case Many manufacturers use plastic injection molding to create cases for phones. A practical application of SolidWorks Plastics is using it to assess the manufacturability of these plastic cases. You too can design your own case that fits the iPhone 5 and then run an analysis to see how easy (or hard) it is to make. The video below demonstrates how to mesh a case designed for the iPhone 5.

An injection molding analysis on different configurations of the same part leading to different results Cooling Time and Air Traps of a Part with Two Configurations You might have realized your initial part is not ideal for molding. Air might get trapped or it could take too long to fill up or cool down. If you wish to modify your original part, you could create a new configuration. Then you can apply the same tests you used on the newer part to see if your modifications have made any
