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.

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.

The Evolution of Online Shopping It wasn’t long ago that the idea of purchasing products online was a scary, if not completely foreign concept to most of us. If you planned on making any type of specialty purchase, it started with checking the yellow pages or asking a friendly neighbor for a recommendation for a local shop, and then heading out for a scavenger hunt to attempt to become a more knowledgeable consumer. What used to be near impossible for the consumer to acquire GOOD information and

Hello SOLIDWORKS community and welcome to this three part video series where we will talk about the awesome world of Pinewood Derby racing. This was the first year that my son and I were able to experience the Pinewood Derby together, so like any good engineer dad I thought that we should go overboard in how we prepared for the project. We will see what I thought to be a good design after doing a lot of research on the topic, and then analyze the design in a virtual wind tunnel. After that we

My name is Maxime, and I’m currently an intern at Dassault Systemes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Lab Boston. I am an engineering undergraduate student from France and am specializing in Aeronautics. I aspire to design airplanes, and hence have invested myself into honing my CAD skills these past four years of engineering school. Well versed with SOLIDWORKS and CATIA solutions, I am now dividing my time between designing cool things on SOLIDWORKS xDesign and learning how to use digital fabrication machines at

Plastic parts are now commonplace in consumer product design, and for good reason. Highly durable, endless color options and of course, an inexpensive option when manufactured in high volumes. For the engineering and design team at URB-E, it was a no brainier to utilize plastic components for the fenders and battery hub in order to ramp up its production. But does this mean you have to be an expert in plastics parts to be able to design one in SOLIDWORKS?

Welcome back SOLIDWORKS Users to this awesome tutorial where we are celebrating Deadpool’s frequent Fourth wall breaks in this 4 part series. We’ve successfully reworked Wade Wilsons head to be a sharp tool holder. In this final part of the series let’s add a few final details to the top of the head, and we’ll use the Boundary Cut tool to hollow out the bottom of the bust to save on material while 3D printing.  Check out part one, part two, or part three of this series if you missed them!

When testing out a new standup desk, I quickly discovered three things about the design that needed improvement. The tray offset height needed to increase Line of sight to keyboard needed to improve Width of the tray needed to increase. First on the list was the biggest problem, the new offset to the tray was too tall for my 9” custom monitor stands and not enough for using the platform with no stands. Designing new tray brackets would allow me to correct all three problems.

This Friday I was invited to my wife’s work’s BBQ. I couldn’t go empty-handed so I thought I would 3D print something to give to her boss. It would be a nice icebreaker, and I thought it would be a good project to try out SOLIDWORKS xDesign on my Chromebook. To up the ante somewhat, and also save myself some post-processing time, I would design it so it could be printed as quickly as possible and needing no support structures.

The DimXpert tools in SOLIDWORKS MBD allow you to dimension your parts and assemblies with 3D annotations in order to communicate requirements directly in 3D for the manufacturing process. DimXpert dimensions can show widths, lengths, diameters, and several other features and tolerances so you can fully represent your part. But what if one section of your part needs to have different tolerances than other sections? For example, this purple gearbox shaft, shown in Figure 1, is connected to

Normally, I’m a Technical Manager at SOLIDWORKS, but this summer, I’ll be spending my days playing the role of an obnoxious CAD know-it-all on the URB-E design team. I’ll be getting on the nerves of my teammates by constantly demanding them to up their game, forcing them to adopt new and efficient CAD features, and pushing them to output the best looking and functioning designs possible – anything but the status quo. Hilariously, my co-workers claim this new role will not be far off from the

“Efficient Design with Layout Sketching” -Todd Trein In the very beginning stages of design, ideas are commonly sketched out on paper; also known as “napkin sketches” due to the common practice of sketching at the local watering hole. This convenient method is ideal for visualizing our thoughts quickly but doesn’t allow us to prove out positioning and motion behaviors. A major design requirement for URB-E from the onset was to minimize the footprint in its stored position while maintaining the

In a parking lot next to Gillette Stadium, fourteen trucks and their drivers were getting ready for the Monster Jam Pit Party to begin, the mammoth machines shining in the sunlight. Among the trucks was Max-D, sitting massive and proud next to its trailer. And next to Max-D, at a 42.42% scale, sat the mini-Max-D, waiting to be revealed.
