In honor of America’s Independence Day, we decided to simulate an aerial fireworks display in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. We wondered just how closely we could recreate the effect, and we also had a few specific questions to answer; such as how much the wind will move the shell off course, and what impact the angle of the tube will have on the final trajectory. We’ll use this information to plan a big fireworks display in SOLIDWORKS and in the back yard.

The SOLIDWORKS Rx tool allows you to easily capture video and diagnostic information for troubleshooting problems, checking your system performance, and updating your video card driver. It also allows you to run tests and compare your results with fellow SOLIDWORKS users. By familiarizing yourself with how to use the SOLIDWORKS Rx tool, you’ll have the diagnostic tools to communicate and solve any problems you come across.

Author: Jim Peltier, CSWE, Javelin Technologies Often times, SOLIDWORKS Dimension Styles are passed without notice because it is quite easy to get the job done without using them. However, they can be used for dimensions that have very common notes attached to them.

It’s safe to say that Quidditch is Harry Potter’s favorite wizarding pastime. As Hagrid would say, a wizard’s passion for Quidditch is the equivalent to a muggle’s passion for football. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the first publication in the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. To celebrate, we are showing SOLIDWORKS users how to model the Golden Snitch – the little ball that Harry loves to hate.

What is SOLIDWORKS API? SOLIDWORKS API is a gateway to automating your design process and data management. Using .NET compatible languages (VB, C#, C++) one can write small macros or build full-blown add-ins for modelling, routine edits and feeding data from one software package to another.

Often times parts vary slightly in design, which can result in different geometry. The Compare Documents command is used to compare the document properties, the features used, the geometry itself, or a bill of materials between two documents in SOLIDWORKS. Because the documents can be so closely compared, it helps identify areas that may cause mechanical issues based on differences in the design geometry. This is an especially great tool for comparing imported geometry to a repaired or modified
