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.”

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recently conducted their 2017 MBE PMI validation and conformance test for CAD vendors. They previously ran the test in 2012 and 2015. NIST created a “test system to measure the conformance of computer aided design software to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standards for product manufacturing information (PMI), specifically geometric dimensioning and tolerancing” [1]

“That looks ok, but can we see the spring compress?” It is the dreaded question that so many SOLIDWORKS animation users find themselves on the receiving end of. Creating in-context geometry modifications is not always the easiest task in an animation. A spring compressing or decompressing is the quintessential example of this.

Creating dimensions in drawing views can often be a time consuming process. This is especially true when there’s a lot of views included in the drawing. To make it easier to add dimensions to views, SOLIDWORKS can move or copy dimensions from one view to another. All it takes is a single keystroke combined with a mouse drag on screen.
