Shooting great moving shots with a camera can be done with super steady hand but sometimes that’s not enough. Sometimes you need a mount to help get those shots to be steady and precise. Unfortunately some if this equipment can be really expensive for someone starting out and can creating videos as a hobby. So we designed this awesome DIY dolly using some Skateboard wheels, Solidworks and 3D printing.

Hello to all, Welcome to this new edition of the SOLIDWORKS Support Monthly News, co-authored by members of the SOLIDWORKS Technical Support teams worldwide. Upgrading a Cubicle Hook with Topology Optimization By Brad Phillips I recently purchased a small 3D Printer at home and it is really fun to use the power of SOLIDWORKS to design and print little things that are useful in everyday life. At work, I recently needed a hook to hang my coat on which would hang in my cubicle. Online I found a

Have you tried to cache an older version of a file and couldn’t find the ‘Get’ command in SOLIDWORKS PDM? It can be challenging for a PDM Admin to enable this option for a group/user after the vault is initially implemented. The reason behind this is there isn’t an ‘Enable Get Command’ checkmark box that an Admin can select. This command is only available for users when multiple options in the Administration tool are set together.

The filling stage is an important stage in injection molding cycle. Starting from the pellet as a material, in the hopper, conveyed by a screw in the chamber, until the melt thermoplastics injecting into the cavity, filling stage is one of the major factors in the plastic production process. In the industry nowadays, the high production rate is important. To be a good vendor of custom molding, you should have the ability to fulfill the demand from the customer and the plastic market.

A composite material is a mixture of two or more materials. This is usually a stiff unidirectional fiber combined with a softer matrix element. The goal of such a mixture gets more desirable overall properties that each individual material could not provide. Composites usually exhibit good strength to weight ratio and are used primarily in the Aerospace and Biomedical applications or sporting goods like tennis racquets. composites Figure 1: Composite Material SOLIDWORKS Simulation Composite

Multi Material 3D Printing is a way of printing with different materials to create more complex parts and parts that have multi colours. Most of these machines only have the capabilities of printing two material but for the tutorial we used an Original Prusa i3 MK2s with the Multi material upgrade which can print up to four materials. Multi material printing has some great advantages but it also has some disadvantage. these pros and cons need to be weighed up to find the balance to where you

Designers and engineers face a multitude of challenges whenever they approach an injection molding machine. One that has persisted for years is the difficulty of getting multi-cavity tools to produce identical parts. While the financial benefit of multi-cavity production is undeniable, rarely has the full financial benefit been realized. In many cases, the quality problems are so great that single-cavity production can be less expensive.

The Bounding Box fits a virtual cuboid over each unique (non-structural member) solid body and returns the thickness, width and length values and collates them into a description that you can display in your cut list. These values update automatically as the model changes which is ideal for plates with steel structures and panels with wooden structures, such as furniture. But what if you decide to create your ‘structure’ as an assembly made up of individual components rather than a multibody

How to change a SOLIDWORKS Bend Note angle to be Complementary or InsideWhat is a complementary angle? What am I referring to with changing the bend note angle to be complementary? Unfortunately, this won’t mean that your flat patterns will praise how great of a designer you are, but it certainly could help impress the manufacturing department! Check out the image below describing the difference between the supplementary and complementary angles as measured on a bent sheet metal part.

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.

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

In this blog, we’ll take a look at some of the new PDM features and enhancements for SOLIDWORKS 2018. PDM Standard The first major change which occurs in 2018 is a change to the PDM naming scheme and support. From SOLIDWORKS 2018 onward, Workgroup PDM is no longer supported and has been replaced by SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard. This means that if you are currently using SOLIDWORKS 2017 (or earlier) with Workgroup PDM and want to upgrade to SOLIDWORKS 2018, you will also have to upgrade (or migrate)
