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.”

“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.

Written by: Michael Nolte, Application Engineer, DASI Solutions From time to time, there is a need to create a test environment so that any potential changes to a SOLIDWORKS PDM vault can be tested away from the production vault or a vault that is actively being used. This way, change can be vetted out without causing delay or problems to a company’s normal activities in a production PDM vault.

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.

Contour selection options allow individual contours to be selected within a sketch. By making use of contour selection techniques, a single sketch can be used to produce multiple features. Use the Contour Select Tool to pre-select contours for a feature. Use the Selected Contours options for a feature to define areas of a sketch to use. Use a single sketch to generate multiple features. Understand the icons displayed when using selected contours and sharing sketches.

The <MOD-DIAM> issue can occur if you’ve been running several versions of SOLIDWORKS alongside one another on the same machine. SOLIDWORKS routes its file locations for common items like templates and symbols to the same location for both versions of the software. The version which is installed first will be the source for these file locations.

While some of the common patterning commands like Linear Pattern and Circular Pattern can accomplish your modeling needs, sometimes a feature needs to be patterned along a face that has a custom curvature. The Curve Driven Pattern command allows you to pattern along a curve, which is extremely helpful when the pattern needs to be created on a non-planar face. Check out the video below to learn more!

SOLIDWORKS is a powerful tool for creating parts and features with complex geometries and structures. If you know how to use it, the process to create these shapes can be quick and very effective. Stuart, one of Cadtek’s Elite Application Engineers, will guide you through the creation of this paddle for use in Paddle-boarding, one of his hobbies outside of Cadtek. This two part tutorial came about while trying to solve a real world issue he had creating a GoPro camera mount for use when paddling

A common process is the export of your drawings to PDF files, so you can communicate these with non-CAD users. This can be a very time-consuming and boring task. SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional offers automated tasks to do this job for you, but non-PDM users will not benefit from this. So, in this tech blog I want to introduce the SOLIDWORKS Task Scheduler.
