In this course, you will learn about what types of dynamic environments exist and the tools available for their simulation. Dynamic problems can be computationally intensive. For that reason, dynamic loads are divided into several basic types. Each will call for a different simulation tool to treat it efficiently.

Understanding the import process into SOLIDWORKS Visualize is essential to working efficiently, and can be controlled by both the import settings and the organization of the original CAD file. Learn the two most common import settings to setup the Visualize project for different workflows; one to make the model quick and easy to work with and the other to allow for live updates and more flexibility with the model grouping. Learn how to best prepare your CAD file for the desired Visualize experience. Understand how to efficiently import models into Visualize by selecting the appropriate Import Settings. Utilize CAD Live-Update for a seamless design process.

This module covers three technical summaries for using SOLIDWORKS MBD. For drafted parts: Create DimXpert Location dimensions between drafted surfaces by suppressing draft or using intersection geometry. For sheet metal: Use a separate configuration for the flat pattern of a sheet metal part. Use reference dimensions to dimension between sheet metal bend lines. For weldment structures: Use cut lists to display dimensions for structural members of weldment structures. Add 3D Notes to the weldment structure and apply weldment symbols.

Learn DimXpert in Assembly to define dimensions and tolerances for overall sizes and installation interfaces in assembly environment. All the existing DimXpert capabilities in part are supported in assembly. Use Auto Dimension Scheme define the installation hole spacing. Use Location and Size dimension tools to define hole sizes and assembly feature dimensions and tolerances. Apply manual basic dimensions. Select edges instead of faces for easier definition. Place dimensions per mouse move just like in 2D drawings or sketches. Update flag notes automatically. Display coordinate systems per feature control frames.

It is common practice to update parts and assemblies, but in a SOLIDWORKS Composer file, it is difficult to make substantial design changes since it is not a native SOLIDWORKS CAD software. However, it is simple to update SOLIDWORKS Composer actors and assemblies. All you have to do is select the components, and then choose “Update”. This relieves the headache of needing to update everything externally in SOLIDWORKS. In this lesson, individual actors as well as the whole assembly will be updated to show the updating capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Composer.

Animations provide an extra visual representation of how an assembly can be put together, taken apart, and shows the order in which parts are added. Animations compliment exploded views incredibly well and help manufacturers and assemblers understand exactly how the components come together. Animations also serve as a great marketing tool, as they can show off the complexities of the design as well as how refined the final product is. In this lesson, an Animation will be created in SOLIDWORKS Composer by exploding additional components in this assembly.

Exploded views can be created in SOLIDWORKS Composer and are incredibly helpful when trying to show all the components used in an assembly, or for showing how to assemble, disassemble, or repair the assembly. Exploded views can also be used for other purposes such as showing off a design by a marketing team. In this lesson, an exploded view and detailing the individual components will be shown by adding labels to each part in the assembly.

Since vector graphics scale without distorting the image, they are very useful when trying to insert images into other documents, such as a PDF or a Word doc. Vector images also allow for a clean professional look for marketing purposes. In this lesson, you'll see detail views added to this exploded view and create a vector image of both of them.

The Digger tool is a patented technology in SOLIDWORKS Composer that allows you to zoom into a part, create detail views and fade away actors in order to see internal components or mechanisms. Using the Digger tool allows users to easily create detail views of interior components of an assembly without having to manually hide actors in the assembly. Additionally, this tool helps give a better understanding of actors and assemblies with its ability to zoom into any specific portion of a part or assembly. In this lesson, you'll see how the Digger tool can be used to create multiple detail views of both the exterior and some interior areas of an assembly.

Being able to incorporate SOLIDWORKS Composer files into a Word document or a PDF gives more flexibility to share information with manufacturers and assemblers. Even if a user doesn’t have SOLIDWORKS Composer downloaded on their machine, incorporating an SMG file into a Word document or a PDF can be a way to communicate efficiently using Composer files. In this lesson, you will see how to link SOLIDWORKS Composer file into a Word Document and a PDF as well as show how different configurations can be loaded in the same document.
