Learn how the Alignment Tools can be used to adjust the orientation of faces, edges and vertices using a variety of methods. Align a selection using draw and straight line commands in order to reorient components of geometry. Straighten curved geometry using the Align Mesh Points tool.
Discover how to create simple freeform, sub divisional shapes using SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design. Create and place free form sub divisional surface shapes into the graphics area. Edit the size and basic dimensions of the free form shape.
Learn how to combine freeform surfaces with conventional surfaces using patch functionality. Create conventional surfaces and combine them with freeform surfaces. Use the Trim Surfaces command to cut unwanted surfaces.
This video shows off some of the capabilities of working with multiple bodies in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design. Combine bodies using Boolean commands. Edit bodies before and after Boolean operations.
In this video, the Arc Bend and Cut Plane tools are featured. These tools allow for fast and easy manipulation of the geometry. Bend selected entities about an axis using the Arc Bend tool. Cut a sub divisional surface model across a plane using the Cut by Plane tool.
Discover how the Delete Entities and Fill Edges tools can be used to swap between surface and solid bodies. Delete edges and faces to remove instances of geometry on a model. Use the Fill Edges command to grab the outer edges of a surface to form a solid.
Learn how to add a sharp crease to a freeform surface using the Crease command. Create sharp corners using the Crease command. Control the crease level using the slider bar.
This video features the Insert Loops and Subdivide Faces commands. These tools allow a sub divisional surface model to be further subdivided for geometry refinement. Use the Insert Loops command to divide a loop of faces with one division or multiple divisions. Refine a surface locally with the Subdivide Face command.
Learn how the Freeform Extrude feature can be used to manipulate an existing primitive by pushing and pulling surfaces. Add material by selecting faces that you want to extend outward. Remove material by selecting opposite faces. Create a bridge between two normal faces.
This module shows some of the basics associated with creating simple freeform shapes. Start with a predetermined shape and edit the shape during and after placement. Create 2D primitives based off of sketches and predetermined shapes. Use sketches to make 3D primates using the revolve command.
Discover how selections work in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Conceptual. Select groups of faces, edges or vertices using intuitive tools and keyboard shortcuts. Use the control button to manually group individual faces, edges or vertices. Activate the group select tools to save time while making selections.
Learn how to edit free form, sub divisional surface shapes by using the robot in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Conceptual. Edit surfaces by using the robot to translate, rotate, and scale faces, edges and vertices. Manipulate the location of the robot with simple drag and drop functionality.
Learn how Concept Sketching in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design can be used to sketch directly onto a curved surface. Sketch directly onto a curved surface. Use the curved sketch to extrude or cut. Edit the original surface and watch the surface sketch and features update.
This module shows some of the Concept Sketch tools available in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design. Draw up designs with the fluidity of pencil and paper sketches. Edit Concept Sketch geometry using erase and delete functionality. Convert concept sketches to useable sketch geometry with the Convert tool. Merge sketch entities together using the blend tool.
This video focuses on the process for movement and motion analysis using SOLIDWORKS Conceptual Design. Create basic linkages quickly and easily. Add motors and linear actuators to drive your mechanisms. Setup contact to simulate physical dynamics.
Learn how the 3DEXPERIENCE applications can export sketches and geometry as 3DXML files which capture sketch relations for easy communication with SOLIDWORKS. Collaborate directly with SOLIDWORKS Keep sketch relations between the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and SOLIDWORKS by using 3DXML files.
Discover how easy it is to import and export geometry into and out of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. Import 3D design data. Use direct editing capabilities on imported geometry. Import DXF and DWG files to create sketch entities. Export geometry to other CAD programs such as SOLIDWORKS Desktop.
Learn how to store, create, and retrieve concept ideas while iterating to a final design. Navigate through design concepts quickly and easily. Keep all your data on the cloud for easy file management and reduced hard drive clutter.
