i would like to start a thread with pictures of what people use solidworks for, just for general interest.
what do people think? heres one from me.
Adrian Crisci - Awesome stuff, like always
Here's a steampunk render using modo assets of the Blade Runner 2049 binoculars model posted by Jon-A-Tron Blade Runner Binoculars: 19 Steps (with Pictures)
Pooch is definitely waiting for some morsels... Ha!
That looks really good! Have you seen Adam Savage building one IRL using 3D printed parts from that model?
Hey Ian,.. yes, I watched it.. definitely a fun model build... and especially since Blade Runner is one of my all time favorite movies!
Here is an Electro-Chemical Deburr Fixture that I am just about finished with.
Awesome job Dan Pihlaja
That is AWESOME Dan!

I do Galvanized Tubes.
I've always wanted to do this model,.. and, found a guy named SupaFly did one back in 2013.. he posted STL's on Thingiverse (T-1 Aerial aka Hunter Killer Drone by SupaFly, published Mar 4, 2013).. so, I referenced the STL's and images from the movie... was surface modeled/rendered (PV360) all in 2014.
3 of these 11m hex Buoys now Manufactured In Far East and Shipped to ***********. The Orgial Concept I did can be seen on your 'SPLASH' Screen when booting up Solidworks 2016 onward. This is just one of the final Renders for the job. Next up, A 900 tonne 20m Buoy. Almost twice the size. Model has 70,000 Components and Opens in less than 3 Minutes
How do you have your model setup so that it opens in 3 minutes?
Some real cool stuff here so i thought maybe i should post a project image of a system i modeled of some scientific testing equipment. My Project here at Dycor.
Loads of Subassemblies, Keep all parts/Components below 1MB. And basically strict Model Management. Sloidworks paid a visit to our company purely to see one of these models perform. (Don't think THEY believed they wer as fast as I have said. PLUS... This sort of Shite is My Hobby, Not so much a Job

...PUBG Spetsnaz Helmet, Level 3 (modeled/rendered in 2014)
Inspired from the tutorials of lamborghini, i created this.
A few screenshots of one of our Camera Control Units, fuly wired.....I got bored
Wow awesome work did you use Solidworks 3D electrical or just solidworks to model the wires, and i like the multi colored ribbon cable, is that a bit map trick?

Craig Makarowski wrote:
I didn't use 3D Electrical but did use SolidWorks Routing for most of the cables. The big flat ribbon cable was done with Routing & then I used a decal to cover the surface. It goes a bit out of alignment in places as it goes around the bends but looks reasonable. The other two ribbon cables were modelled in SolidWorks with Sweeps as Routing didn't work too well. All other cables & wiring were done with Routing.
Here is another my Cad renders of a design done in colabration with my coworker, we never actually built a prototype :-(
Those wires look awesome, specially the flat cables and particularly the "S" shaped one. Excellent work.
I also do wiring... not as pretty renderings... more of the industrial part catalog type. (see enclosed ART-36 manual page 2 and 8).
I also have to do manuals... in good'old MS Publisher of all things (see AXESB-2 manual) and a free version of PhotoStudio (circa 2003 version).
Very nice indeed Ned.

Nice work on the manuals, they look great.
Nice! Animal transport trailers? I wish we had time to do renders sometime loll
Here is my ribbon cable foray in routing works SW2016
Not renders, just realview with a camera save as jpeg
Yeah but there's still the stripping layout, that's what we don't take the time to do hehe.
Not quite up to the calibre of most of you guys but I thought I'd submit this truck seat anyway. I really think I need a more powerful machine lol.
First image is with PV360 (which I have no clue how to use).
Not very colourful huh?
This next image is just from Realview.........
Perhaps I should have tried vinyl upholstery instead of fabric. It's a shame I can't really get the colours to 'pop'
Not bad man!.... yeah,..knowing/sadly, PV360 is a limited Modo, which is a MORE than capable.. but, for any render engine.. it takes time with tweaking the materials and lighting...
Not bad, not bad at all... !
PV360 is not too hard to use and does a fairly good job rendering fast images.
SW Visualize does a nicer job but takes forever to setup and render. (to the point that I uninstalled it).
I would say most of what you need to concentrate on while trying to render in PV360 is materials, textures, lights and shadows.
These last two (lights and shadows) are really what makes it or breaks it.
Keep practicing... Once you get the hang of it, it will be second nature.
Well... since they requested more renderings in the Marketing dep. might as well post them here too. All done with PV360...
It a Pizza Oven Unit I design several year ago... it has gone through several transformations from manual ignition (spark) to completely automatic now (hot surface igniter / safety valve setup)...
And of course, because everyone wants "accent" lights... we added those too.
I think next year they want lights on the knob bezels... because all high end units are doing it... Sheeesh...
Adrian Crisci - Very nice design!!! Do you have anything else you can share?
Look back in the history of this thread, there are tons of pictures....
My contributions start on page 50 back in 2011.
Damn... THAT long ago... and this thread was already well established then....
..but, has anyone ask... ok, where's my Pizza!?
I used to create these DEMs with AutoCad wireframes. Very fun, much patience and don't forget the draw the CL pulley in the right direction!
Adrian Crisci - All your stuff is awesome... I would love to cook my heart out on those grills...
Finished modeling and rendering my favorite old school game console: SNES.
used Solidworks 2018 and Visualize 2018 + photoshop
Here is a Chamber design that I and My collegue work on Used Photoworks 360 to render
I ve been working with SW for about a year but I've been doing CAD for about 10. My previous experience was with Rhino, Spaceclaim and MOI, along with other 3D non-CAD modelers like modo etc
Not really sure if this is the right place to do so but here is my first take on a fairly complex surfacing model since I'm really fascinated with StarWars,SolidWorks, and its surfacing capabilities in general. No reference images were used to model the helmet, I just kept checking various stormtrooper pictures around the web along with sketchfab and picked the ones that actually looked more organic and would pose a better challenge.
I also 3Dprinted the model in 2x2inch scale in Nylon.
Awesome stuff Nick!
Sweet stuff Nick!
(I also have a 3D printed Storm Trooper helmet - It was printed on a Z-Corp printer many, many years ago.)
I'll snap a picture of it tonight when I get home, and post it.
Is it just me, or there are a 'few' posts missing in here, there is huge gap between july and september, and I'm pretty sure there were more posts.
Here someone say me...I need a design for 4 workstations....and I did it something like this....maybe next time I will be do it better
Nice work, Carlos---particularly well rendered images with great control over material texture, lighting, and highlights. Decals always go a long way with added realism, too!

To me, it doesn't look as if each station has enough desk space. Just saying.
I know that it's....but there isn't too space available....the another office has much space at this case each station has much space.
How you modify it to give a better solution. Wood it isn't my specialty, at this case I want to learn from the master on wood.
If you don't have the space then there's not much you can do buddy!
I think my feet would go through that computer down there
Thank you Jeff.
Here is another set of images I made using Solidworks (to model the camera head) and Maya (for the tripod) and rendered it all in Solidworks Visualize.
that's about what i have. you have do with what you got...
Rubén Rodolfo Balderrama Here is a 4 pack of desk with returns that can handle 3 full size cpus per each user.
Dave Bear This should have enough space to spread out on.
Excellent---love the depth of field effect. How do you like Visualize vs. PV360? Is it worth the cost?
This is not a comment on your layout/design and I realize you are working with the space you have available.
However, just in case any current or future employers of mine are seeing this I can't begin to describe how much I would HATE working in such a confined space.
Thank you. I've only lightly used Photoview, but from what I've tested, PV feels good for quick renders that are nicer than basic screenshots. Visualize can be a lot more in depth, but can give you advertising quality renders.
H form looks good to me...thanks buddy
I know....poor people....hell damn, next time my correct answer will be....I'm a mechanical designer....not wood designer...
I think the wood looks fine. I'd just like to see more of it, if that was my desk.
The design is good Ruben given the constraints you were told to work with, the layout looks clean and all but as everyone pointed out, anyone who has worked in our domain knows we require more space then that.
Perhaps your layout was made for receptionists and secretaries
Rubén Rodolfo Balderrama wrote: I know....poor people....hell damn, next time my correct answer will be....I'm a mechanical designer....not wood designer...
It is ok Rubén Rodolfo Balderrama. We get all kinds of request and some are really useless spaces to work at.
This is a workstation for papa smurf and friends.....
I understand, what the point is....
it's for marketing and buyers only.....but next works will be for designers....at this case a better solution will be like Danny Edwards show us....
Very cool indeed Ned,
Love the detail............
Great job Ned
Someones already stolen the ladder off the front in the final product

Well spotted Kevin,
Someone obviously had a more urgent need for it.........
This model was created was using SOLIDWORKS Professional
This model was created using Driveworks within SOLIDWORKS Professional
It's taken me a lot longer than I would have thought to put together but the dashboard for my truck is now complete. Just thought I's share some images. Not rendered because I neither have the talent nor the time..........
Time now to move onto a new part of the cab interior.......
that looks nice:)
have u been using decals or is it maybe boss cut/extrude or maybe split faces with colours/text?
There's no decals at all. Everything is either as you said, created with split lines and then coloured, or bosses or extrudes.
Dave Bear - All I can say is "INCREDIBLE" it would be great if you could post those pictures to your other posts... awesome, just flat out "Awesome" - thanks for sharing....
Fantastic work Dave, looks just awesome & great detail without using any decals.
Look forward to seeing the next instalment.
I know that u probably still have a lot of work to completely finish you truck, but.... when u finish it, u should do 'flyby' from the 1st person perspective
Thanks guys, I appreciate it
For some reason I can't open those images you've attached.............?
Here is a close up of the odometer dials....
WOW Dave...nice work Buddy....how you made to add a bunch of detailing on the odometer?
I made one display for a weighbridge and had some troubles with that...
As you see they need a little bit more detailing but at some steps I can't make able...
Your dropbox seems to be set to "private". No-one here can see your pics.
Why not just upload them here using the "insert image" icon?
I fix it...the reason was the system made links from Dropbox....and you needed to have rights ....I uploaded directly now.
Now I see...you use cuts and give it a colour....next work I will try to use your method...thanks buddy!

Or you can use split line and then colour. The reason I chose my way is because I actually looked in an old truck and took some notes and that's how it was.... Nice work by the way!
When I used Split...at one step...doesn't works anymore....
Nice work Dave Bear and Rubén Rodolfo Balderrama.
Thanks Danny Edwards! Administration department made me one request for 4 new workstations...I think to use your suggestion...girls has too papers, bills, checks and that kind of things....her faces gave me the suggestion what her needed... huge space to work.
Ok. Was you going to make it all out of wood? I can give you the basic dimensions for the desk I shown here to see if you have room in it in the room.
Of course everything on wood, if you have basic dimensions I will finish it in 2 days I think including BOM and drawings....
Here you go.
Thanks When I finish it I will send you my complete work to you....always you need another pal to has a critic eye on your own work...
Thanks Rubén Rodolfo Balderrama. I know Dan Pihlaja is after one of our desk for R-D of his own. I am going to fill my trailer like Johnny Cash Cadillac and have a nice road trip and make him a nice dual plane 90° desk for his office.
Dan Eldred you send me the file for the HD Logo? I need this for a garage project!
Doubt if Dan will hear ya...
John Stoltzfus dang. Guess I should've checked that....
