Author: Scott Durksen, CSWE, Javelin Technologies Starting in SOLIDWORKS 2014, you have the ability to lock rotation of concentric mates. This can help avoid additional mates required if you didn’t want the components to rotate.

Reducing product weight and improving performance are key goals in most design projects to minimize costs and differentiate your products. SOLIDWORKS design optimization allows you to quickly size your design to meet performance needs without using excessive amounts of material. Let’s take a look at this cantilevered platform below.

In today’s blog, we’ll be going further in depth to prepare your model for asset generation by diving into Viewport Properties in SOLIDWORKS Composer. With Viewport Properties, we’ll go through how certain Lighting properties affect your actors. In addition, we’ll see what some of the Property Pane Controls do, which will help when trying to either Copy an Appearance to another actor, or Setting a Neutral Property!

Where is Your Cut List Folder? Here in tech support, we were in communication with a worried customer that thought his master weldment model (which accounted for most of his business) had become corrupted. His highly valued cut list went missing from the Design Tree.

Have you ever tried to perform an action in SOLIDWORKS and suddenly receive an error similar to this one? Have no fear! This error message likely appeared because the DLL dependency has either been broken, overwritten, or upgraded to a newer version.

Virtually testing designs is an integral part of the design and innovation process. With a 3D model in SOLIDWORKS it’s easy to find out how strong or durable your design is using Simulation. But for a Simulation to be accurate, the virtual test needs to reflect its real world, physical counter part. This is why the material properties is the foundation of a Simulation’s accuracy.

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.

Software updates, accidental deletion, hardware failures, and viruses are just a few things that can damage or completely destroy your business-critical vault data. So, it’s incredibly important to perform a SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard backup as part of a regular, structured process. Here’s our best practice guide for performing your PDM Standard backup

Setting project locations is optional, but can be useful when organizing components and defining a project structure that makes finding things easier and declutters the component tree. The process is simple yet powerful. Defining locations at the beginning of a project requires foreknowledge of all the locations that will be used, but don’t worry, it is possible to add and remove locations throughout the project as it is worked on. It is good to have locations defined at the beginning because

One of our favorite things about SOLIDWORKS Composer is the way you can take your images to a whole new level, with the ability to create content that you can navigate quickly and easily. So how can we do that? The first thing to do is to create some image views.

Have you ever rolled a dice and hoped for a specific number to show up? Because I know I have! With lots of roll playing games, using dice of various shapes and sizes I decided it would be fun to model some dice and see if I can manipulate the center of mass to roll the specific number I desired. I chose a D20 because it has a unique shape and is used frequently in D&D.

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.
