Reverse Engineer Modeled Parts FeatureWorks How Stuff FeatureWorks, Part II Part 2: Interactive Recognition Prerequisite, Part 1: Automatic Recognition So now that we know a bit more about FeatureWorks, lets look at how we can make it work around our own ideas and design intent. Here you can see that I’ve inserted the same part as before in an assembly. Notice that that the position of the mounting tab falls off the weldment. Lets see how we can use FeatureWorks to deconstruct and rebuild this

Fettuccine Pasta Bridge Richard first came up with the idea of constructing a bridge using fettuccine pasta, while pushing a shopping cart alongside his wife, Carmy, at a supermarket. As Carla stopped in the aisle stacked with a variety of pastas, Richard carefully observed the different types of pastas, appreciating the uniformity inside of the packaging. He recalls thinking, “To try and make something like that would be very difficult to say the least. I could not wait to get SOLIDWORKS up and

One of the more challenging parts of implementing a PDM System can be the introduction of legacy files into the Vault. Mapping revision properties that exist within SOLIDWORKS files to match the revisions within PDM has traditionally meant the use of APIs, complex migration workflows, or the manual incrementing of files. Without going through one of these processes, once checked in and transitioned, files migrated into the vault can have their revision variables incorrectly reset. So for example

Science fiction has wet our appetites with visions of what will be served for dinner in the decades to come. These culinary prognostications range from the realistic, food packets and moon sandwiches in 2001: A Space Odyssey or food pills in the Jetson’s; and the ridiculous, Demolition Man’s prediction that every restaurant will become Taco Bell, thanks to a franchise war; to the frightening, two words: Soylent Green (it’s people)!

SOLIDWORKS contains a lot of features, but most users only use a small selection of them. In this tech blog I want to reveal a feature, which is relatively unknown to many users, but yet very powerful: Delete Face. It is a feature which I use often on day to day basis to solve some customer issues. Where to find it?

This year’s SAE AERO Design West competition took place in the heart of the USA, nestled right in Fort Worth Texas. Students from all around the world and from different walks of life, filled the hotel lobby with propellers, DC motors, and aerodynamic fuselages, as they marched their planes in and out of the judges’ arena. Day 1 of the event was all about technical qualifications. A warm Texas morning welcomed the teams to the Thunderbird Field that hosted the Day 2’s agenda: Flight.

Learn SOLIDWORKS Mouse Gestures Most of us don’t use SOLIDWORKS with any sort of fancy, new-fangled, professional 3D mouse. Instead, we make due with a standard, two-button mouse that probably comes with a scroll wheel and maybe a couple of other buttons. Does this make us any less important? Of course not!

Problem: I want to backup my SOLIDWORKS settings regularly. Currently, I have an alarm set and once a month I run Copy Settings Wizard*, but I’d really like to just put it on a schedule and forget about it. Solution: Write a simple batch file and run that through SOLIDWORKS Task Scheduler** as a Custom Task on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. I know this sounds like a lot, but if I can do it, you can do it.

There are many adjectives I can use to describe my college experience: amazing, stressful, memorable, ridiculous, and broke, to name just a few. However, when I think back on some of the dorm rooms I shared, one word in particular comes to mind: CRAMPED. If you’ve ever lived in a dorm (and especially if you live in one now), you understand that space is a huge commodity. Every square inch you can gain is important.

Last month, Amazon invited its legions of customers to shop the future with the launch of a 3D Printing Store. Although the products range from quirky conversation pieces (personalized figures, phone accessories) to odd gimmicks (bird masks and a 3D-Rex dinosaur), the store’s existence validates a mainstream public interest in 3D printing. Sure the store might feel like the 3D printing Stone Age, but if you believe history repeats itself then designers will eventually strike gold. Beyond proving

Design for Quality – A PerspectiveIncreasingly a lot of attention is being paid to Quality in Product Engineering with emphasis on Quality By Design. Prof. Genichi Taguchi famously defined Quality as ‘Financial Loss to Society AFTER an Article is shipped.’ While 80% of the product cost is determined by design, the fate of a product is determined by its quality. If the concept of Quality is instilled in the design process, then it is bound to be a win-win situation.

“Simple things seem to derive the most pleasure from everyone” – Corporal Willy Corporal Willy with a Epilog 120 Watt Laser The very first time we tried doing a 3D carving, we took just two pieces of scrap wood and glued them together. I looked for two pieces that were not cracked or had any knots or other irregular surface features to them. However, as the machine finished the carving, a knot showed up right at the end of the Wolf’s nose. Rob made this one on a laser machine for a friend’s
