I recently took a trip to visit some of the schools I work in Montana to discuss their STEM Program. One of the schools I visited called Billings Career Center, a Career, and Technical education-focused school, had an exciting project they worked on with NASA using our STEM in a BOX program. The teacher and his students designed parts in SOLIDWORKS, then 3D printed prototypes, and machined the final versions. They then sent the finished versions to NASA.

When designing a new product the best way to get an idea how it will look or feel like in the real world is to produce a prototype. A few years back this would be done in a workshop or outsourced outside of the company. This takes time and can create risk of your early designs and prototypes getting in the wrong hands. But now there is a few choices of 3D printing technology to allow to create your prototypes rapidly and some can be done in house which can save a lot of time.

Sie kennen vielleicht unsere früheren Berichte zu diesem tollen Projekt- wir finden, man kann nicht oft genug darüber reden: Worum geht es bei SOFIA und welche Rolle spielt SOLIDWORKS dabei? SOFIA steht für bzw. ist ein „Stratosphären-Observatorium für Infrarot Astronomie“, die einzige fliegenden Sternwarte der Welt. Bei der Entwicklung vertraute das Deutsche Sofia Institut (DSI) bei der Zusammenarbeit und Kommunikation des Teams auf die Konstruktions- und Analysewerkzeuge der SOLIDWORKS

With SOLIDWORKS Simulation it is possible to test your design during the engineering phase of your project. It’s a powerful tool to provide you direct answers to difficult engineering questions. And to get the right answers, it is important that you interpret the results of your Simulation study in the correct way. But sometimes a high stress value at a certain location is difficult to clarify.

Hello SOLIDWORKS community and welcome back for part two of this three part series involving Pinewood Derby racing. In this video we will be performing some virtual Pinewood Derby races using our various designs to see which one will be the fastest. If we’ve done a good job we should be able to beat our control car. I hope you enjoy watching the results that we found, and will continue watching in part three of this SOLIDWORKS series.

An Integrated Library Package (*.LibPkg) is a type of SOLIDWORKS PCB project which is used, not to layout a pcb, but to gather together schematic symbols and pcb footprints in order to produce an integrated library. Schematic symbols are drawn in the Schematic Library Editor, and model references/links defined for each, along with any parametric information. These are stored across one or more schematic library files. Referenced models can include PCB 2D/3D component models, circuit simulation

現在のCAD/PDM/PLM環境の最適化を検討している企業と多くのやり取りをしている中で、レガシーなPDM/PLMシステムを未だに使用している多くの人々と会いました。そうしたシステムは、はるか昔、私がヒューレット・パッカードの機械設計部門で初めて学んだPDM/PLMそのものであり、いわば過去の遺物です。 当時、PDMシステムは多くの複雑なコーディングによりカスタマイズとサービスを組み合わせて構築される優れたツールボックスでした。JARファイル、Java設定、マクロのコンパイル、カスタムUIコードの作成、SQLテーブルの適用、それをすべて実装して運用するのは大変な作業でした。

Additive manufacturing is the way of the future. There are countless reasons why adopting this new technology makes sense, but once you’ve decided to go down that path, there are many options, and so which path do you take? Currently, there are a number of major players all competing to cross the additive manufacturing finish line and be deemed the top player of this $7.3 billion market. They include HP, Formlabs, and Desktop Metal, and each of them have a different strategy.

SOLIDWORKS xDesign Fridays with the Product Definition Team It’s July, and the thermometer has been flirting with +90° temps for the past week here in Waltham. The office environment at SOLIDWORKS is relaxed, which is ideal on hot and humid New England days. When I say relaxed, what I truly mean is you see few suits and ties. Well, one “anonymous” employee typically will wear a suit and a few executives will wear a jacket.

I spent a long time on the feature with the elbow hinge (all the features from Boss-Extrude4 and below) , then realised that I couldn't mirror them about the front plane. Is there anything I can do so that I can mirror them? I really don't want to CAD the same thing again on the other side.

I'm building a PDM Task Add-in for creating BoMs to allow us to generate specific boms for different purposes. The task loads a "MasterBom" (EdmBomLayout) from PDM that contains all possible columns and populates a CheckedListBox on a form with all columns. I'd like to be able to decide which columns are exported to CSV, and (if possible) reorder the columns.

I have created views for one file. Now, I want to replace it with a different product. The new product is almost similar to the 1st products, I have only option to update and if I update the file with the different product it does reflect any change. I don't want to create configuration but want to replace with different products?

When I open a SW Assembly in composer all the parts are suppressed and it won't let me unsuppressed them. When the assembly is opened in SW it is all resolved, this is a problem for historic assemblies as well as the ones I'm working on. Any models that are current saved in composer work fine it only is affecting newly opened assemblies.
