Convert non-SOLIDWORKS data to “intelligent” native SOLIDWORKS features using FeatureWorks. Automate the conversion of imported parts into SOLIDWORKS features. Convert specific features interactively. Use Volume features to recognize geometry that does not match any other feature type. Convert imported sheet metal parts into SOLIDWORKS features. Convert imported assemblies and multibody parts into feature-based, parametric models.
Convert imported assembly and multibody geometry into SOLIDWORKS feature-based, parametric models. Recognize imported assembly geometry as multiple parts. Use Edit Feature to recognize only selected features from the part. Use child features to recognize multiple features with a single selection.
Convert imported sheet metal part geometry into SOLIDWORKS feature-based, sheet metal, parametric models. Recognize common sheet metal features such as Base Flanges and Sketched Bends. Flatten the result to view the flat pattern. Use a hybrid approach combining the automatic and interactive methods.
Use Volume features to recognize geometry that does not match any other feature type. The volume feature can be replaced with a standard SOLIDWORKS feature. Recognize volume features. Recognize boss and cut revolve features. Use the Up To Face option with cut extrudes. Replace volume features with standard cut features. Edit the mapped features.
Control the conversion of imported part geometry into a SOLIDWORKS feature-based parametric model by converting specific features interactively. Interactively convert feature types. Convert features types that cannot be used with automated methods. Recognize multiple similar features at the same time. Re-recognize geometry and change it to a different type. Add patterns from the list of recognized features.
Automate the conversion of imported part geometry into a SOLIDWORKS feature-based, parametric model. Open an imported data file in SOLIDWORKS. Use the Import Diagnostics tool to repair imported geometry. View the FeatureWorks options. Use the Automatic feature Recognition Mode. Map the features to the part model. Guide the Automatic Recognition Mode for the best results.
In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of the SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional Application Programming Interface (API). The API is used to automate tasks as well as to add functionality to a SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional vault through the creation of standalone programs and add-in applications.
