Analyze different regions of a part to identify which portions of the part are at the target thickness, and assess which regions may lead to issues when creating a mold. Learn to use Thickness Analysis to display regions of a part are that are not at the target thickness. Save and view a Thickness Analysis report.
SOLIDWORKS includes many tools for evaluating part geometry. By analyzing the curvature of a parts curves and surfaces, you can evaluate the quality of transitions between features and the surfaces themselves. Understand what curvature is. Display Curvature to use colors to evaluate the surfaces of a model. Use Curvature Combs to evaluate sketch curves. Learn how to display the minimum radius and inflection points of a curve. Use zebra stripes to simulate reflections on faces of a model. Understand how to use evaluate tools to recognize tangency and curvature continuous conditions.
A From-To List is an Excel spreadsheet that defines electrical connection data for each wire routed in a cable assembly and components, such as connectors, terminal blocks, and ring terminals, to which the wires connect. From-To Lists allow the import of connection and component data into a route subassembly. Create a component library using the Component Library Wizard. Create a cable wire library using the Cable Wire Library Wizard. Use a component library and a cable wire library to create a From-To List with the From-To List Wizard. Place connectors to start routing. Use the \"Guidelines\" routing mode to create geometry for a route. Use the \"Re-route spline\" routing mode to modify a route to pass through pre-defined clips.
Create and edit rigid conduit and wiring routes to connect two electrical receptacle boxes. Understand that the center line of conduit defines the electrical conduit route. Understand that electrical routing components require hybrid components containing CPoints. Use the Auto Route feature to generate route lines. Edit existing route to add desired components.
The goal of this course is to teach you to create Weldment parts and drawings in SOLIDWORKS. Weldment functions are designed for modeling structural members and are especially useful for creating frames and woodworking projects.
The goal of this course is to explore many of the surfacing features inside SOLIDWORKS. Along with how to create and apply these surfacing features, additional features and methods commonly used in ergonomic and industrial designed models are also introduced.
The goal of this course is to teach you how to use the Mold Tools in SOLIDWORKS. In addition, manual surface modeling techniques will be introduced which can assist with solving mold making problems.
In this course you will learn how to solve fluid flow and heat transfer problems using SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is an easy to use computational fluid dynamics software package.
In this course, you will learn about what types of dynamic environments exist and the tools available for their simulation. Dynamic problems can be computationally intensive. For that reason, dynamic loads are divided into several basic types. Each will call for a different simulation tool to treat it efficiently.
In this course, you will learn how to use SOLIDWORKS Motion to analyze the kinematic or dynamic behavior of your SOLIDWORKS assembly model.
The following course relates to the features found in SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic, each modules provides insight into how to best leverage the available tools to achieve results.
Close the corners of a sheet metal part by extending and trimming faces. Understand the different closed corner types. Extend the faces of one flange to meet with the angled faces of another flange.
This module introduces the concept of mesh convergence by seeing how the size of elements affects stresses, strains and displacements. Learn how changing the global element size affects the results. Discover how to apply mesh controls at specific locations. See how sharp corners can produce stress concentrations.
Create a side core with draft from sketches on molds with trapped molding areas. Use feature freeze bar to exclude features from being rebuilt. Create side cores on molds. Exclude features from being rebuilt.
Examine the motion of a catapult as it is loaded and throws a projectile. Add solid bodies contact, add a spring and apply friction. Determine torque required to rotate the crank and load the catapult. Determine the displacement of the loading spring. Study the effect of contact friction on the motion of the projectile.
Use the Split Route tool to add junction points to existing routes. Create geometry at the J-point to orient an in-line fitting. Use the Split Route tool to add a junction point to an existing route. Create 3D geometry at a junction point. Use 3D geometry to orient an in-line fitting.
Utilize cut list properties for multibody sheet metal parts. Assign custom properties to the individual sheet metal bodies. Create a customized cut list table for the sheet metal part.

Texture maps are great tools for adding extra realism to appearances. This lesson debunks the mystery of texture maps, shows how to precisely control them, and enables anyone to become a master of textures. Become comfortable with the four types of texture mapping available in Visualize: Color, Alpha, Specular, and Bump. Add texture maps and learn how to manipulate them using several texture mapping modes. Add free professional pre-textured appearances to your own Visualize projects by downloading them from the Visualize Cloud Library, integrated within the interface.
More than just still images, SOLIDWORKS Visualize has the capability to output videos of animations. Master the settings of the Animation Timeline to create animations for parts, models, cameras, appearances and more. Explore the Animation Timeline and its options. Understand how to add and manipulate keyframes in a couple different ways. Learn the Output Tools options to create videos from your Visualize animations. Available in Visualize Professional.
This module covers how to use Annotation Views to organize Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI). View PMI using the Dynamic Annotation Views tool. Insert orthogonal Annotation Views and add a custom Annotation View using the By Selection option. Reassign PMI to different Annotation Views to organize the display. Use viewports to view the model from multiple perspectives at the same time.
The goal of this course is to teach you how to create animations using SOLIDWORKS assemblies. Animations are used to show how something works by adding motion and enhance the assembly appearance with visual effects.
