Consumer Product Design Part 2Once design changes come through, testing and presenting themodel can help validation of the concept. Using simple simulation tools withinSOLIDWORKS itself, we can imitate loads, fixtures and materials to achieveplenty of results. Visualization of the concept can help sell it and usingadvanced appearance techniques and interactive web content to show it off ismade easy with SOLIDWORKS Visualize and Composer.Throughout the course of this 20 minute webcast we will loo....

SOLIDWORKS Basics – WeldmentsMany real world designs use material cut from length. Thesedesigns may be fabricated from plastics, metals or woods, but irrespective ofthe material, all of these have one thing in common, an end profile that can becaptured in 2D.The shape and size of material profiles, such as 40 x 40 x2mm box section, never changes, so why keep sketching the same thing over andover throughout the course of your design? Well, with SOLIDWORKS Weldments, youdon’t have to. ....

Following on from the AM session applying the saved strategieswill be shown after AFR is used you can choose which strategy that is used when‘generate operation plan’ is actioned.When ‘generate operation plan’ is actioned it creates anoperation for every individual feature meaning that the operation tree canbecome quite long. Combining operations can considerably shorten youroperations tree. The other advantage of combining operations is that anychanges that need to be ma....

Automatic feature recognition (AFR) is a powerful tool that picks up feature types and assigns them with strategies from the Tech DB. Interactive feature recognition (IFR) allows you to create your own 2.5 axis features one by one allowing complete control of geometry selection. The strategy that has been selected for a feature defines what operations are created when ‘generate operation plan’ is actioned. You can create your own strategies by creating ‘2.5 axis milling operations’ then saving these strategies back to the Tech DB so that they can be used next time as a strategy. It is also possible to edit current strategies and save then via the use of ‘save operation plan’ creating new strategies or saving over old ones.
