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.

Download Needle Holder: This part was designed to hold three ball needles used for inflating soccer balls or basketballs and attaches directly to a tire pump cylinder. This part includes static simulation studies with it and was then created with 3D printer. There are three pictures of the finished part included with this part in the “Design Journal document located in the “Design Binder” folder. Download this part to see a model created in SolidWorks and then see it finished as a 3D printed

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!

Hey there, SOLIDWORKS community and Deadpool lovers! Welcome to part 3 of our 4-part series where we are redesigning the Regenerating Degenerates head as a sharp tool holder. Up to this point we’ve successfully imported a mesh of Deadpool’s bust as a solid into SOLIDWORKS, scaled it to the desired size, and simplified the top of the skull a bit. Now, with all of our reference planes laid out, let’s start adding the slots in the top of his head for our various tools.

You are able to use the display settings in SOLIDWORKS to provide greater flexibility when applying different appearances, decals and display modes. This allows the user to manipulate the way that the model is referenced in either drawings, or visual renders. Along with appearances (colours/decals), you also have the ability to change the visibility, display mode and transparency of components within your model. Linking these values within different display states allows you to focus on
