Every SOLIDWORKS user has a basic understanding of how file references work. We typically make a part then create a drawing that shows views of this part. When creating the views on the drawing, what is really happening is the drawing views are looking at the actual part file and displaying it in a way that is based on our view settings. We say that the drawing references the part file.

New to SOLIDWORKS 2019 you are now able to use any black and white image and to create geometry on your model with the 3D Textures command. This tool provides many options when looking to create patterns of complicated shapes; it is also likely the fastest way of embossing a complicated logo onto your part. After seeing an example model from the developers, we decided to test just how capable this new feature was.

Download Wishbone: This festive model demonstrates hybrid modeling. It is modeled with mostly solid body features, with the center intersection created with a handful of surface features. The clavicle is created with a “center line” loft which acts like a loft with a sweep path. A projected curve which “merges” two 2D sketches to make a 3D curve is used for the “sweep path” for the unique “centerline” loft.

SOLIDWORKS includes many powerful toolsets that enable designers to start from a basic set of features to more demanding processes. In this video, I’ll demonstrate a technique that enables users to control a solid object and transform it into a complex surface. By harnessing the unique Dome and Deform SOLIDWORKS offers, we can move from a simple designing approach into one that will take seconds to accomplish. Video Transcript Hi everyone, my name is Jackie and in this video, I’m going to show

This week a customer asked me a simple question about Flow Simulation: “How do I know where the minimum and maximum values are on my model?” This is a good question as it can be very useful to see exactly where the extreme values are located. For instance, the max temperature hot spot in a heated electronic enclosure or the max velocity point of a liquid through a valve would be useful to know. Let’s take the example of a racing car front wing
