Here is a useful Flow Simulation tool that is so well hidden away that it is hardly known about - but can save you a shed load of time if you need to make a global change to a range of Flow parameters - particularly the Bounday Conditions, like inlet....
Whilst we don't want to spoil our up and coming 2014 launch events, there is one enhancement in particular that seems to be creating a bit of a buzz in the SOLIDWORKS Community. SOLIDWORKS 2014 now comes equipped with the Replace Sketch Entities ....
All Flow Simulation users will know what fantastic on-screen images you get when you run a Flow Project - Cut Plots, Trajectories, Surface Plots, Iso-surfaces and so on. However, if you want to save a plot for use in a publication a screen shot ....
Trim/Extend Feature and Weldment Cut Lists A reminder of one of the main features of the Weldments area of SOLIDWORKS; the Trim/Extent tool.   Having started off with a part containing two weldment tubes and a horizontal Boss-Extr....
At lunch time today I witness a design fail. It was lack of Friction which caused it. This reminded me of how you can test the effects of friction and gravity on a system or a design. Check out the video for the actual event, luckily (and genuinely) ....
Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome .... and now the SSM 'Tour de Majorca' dream team! Pictured below is the team attending our first 'Cycling Boot Camp' at Alcudia in Majorca. This picture was before the 100 km ride round the island including a 9 km h....

For many of our Customers using EnterprisePDM, Data Management doesn't stop with CAD files. Engineers and other Contributors to the Vault are constantly producing many other documents including reports, calculations, presentations, proposals etc.....
If you have ever run a SOLIDWORKS Simulation study with a large number of parts you will be aware that it can take a little time to assign the correct materials to each part.   A useful, but often overooked, technique is to drag/copy materials f....
When importing large STL files in to SOLIDWORKS you may come across this error.  This is due to a polygon limit on the SOLIDWORKS STL import utility. Files with more than 20000 polygons cannot be imported as a surface or solid, and only a g....
The Property Tab Builder, introduced in SOLIDWORKS 2009 makes the input of custom properties easier than ever. Properties are used to add data to SOLIDWORKS files to populate drawing borders and Bills of Materials tables, but can also be used as a se....
Have you ever seen this thing appear next to your cursor?     If so, you will have found that you can only select certain things - often not the thing you wanted to select! So what is it? How did it happen? And how on Earth do you get ri....
This is a really useful gem that is hardly noticed or used - but can come in very handy, especially for anyone doing an animation or Motion study.   Suppose you want to illustrate a movement of an assy - some sort of mechanism. Obviously you wil....
SOLIDWORKS have always been a leader when it comes to multibody modelling- since its introduction in SOLIDWORKS 2003 developers have continued to strive and improve the way that we can work with them- so much so that multibody modelling rivals assemb....
