Hole in the Ball!!
Tuesday July 15, 2014 at 10:28am

Well the World Cup is over, so as we are probably all trying to fill the 6 week gap until the start of the new domestic season- here's a blog with football at heart. In this post we look at finding where we have openings in surface models- and the reason why they may not convert to solids. With a football, it won't be much use with a hole in it, so here's a little tip I came across reviewing some of the old SOLIDWORKS World Presentations- it is also one we refer to on the Surface Modelling train....

Creating Cut-Away Drawing Views
Monday July 14, 2014 at 12:08pm

There are several ways to create cut-away views of assembly’s for use on a drawing in SOLIDWORKS. One method of doing this is to create a cut feature at an assembly level, also known as an ‘Assembly Cut’.

Combining Helixes, Surfaces and Sweeps.
Monday June 9, 2014 at 5:27pm

In this week’s blog I’m going to show how to use a combination of simple commands to create this seemingly complex component. The part will start with a simple sphere, a groove will be then cut using a path that was created using a helix and a surface. A multiple profile sweep will create the variable cut gradient, before pattering the groove around the sphere to achieve the desired ‘notched’ result. After creating the sphere we will create a helix that ‘cuts&rsq....

Replacing Inserted Parts for Master Modelling
Wednesday May 28, 2014 at 11:49am

Master modelling is the technique employed by many designers that work with external customer data. It allows the user to import a part into another part document. With an inserted part, new geometry can then be referenced to the inserted part ensuring adequate fit and clearances are maintained. Take for example a simple consumer electrical product like an electric shaver- the main body may be used as the inserted master part to allow other items to be designed- such as button details, or the ra....

A Linear Pattern Design Library Feature – Unistrut
Wednesday May 7, 2014 at 4:52pm

SOLIDWORKS offers integrated Weldment Structure design tools at all levels of the product. Through the ‘SOLIDWORKS Content’ section of the design library, profiles for most types of structural member can be downloaded. The ‘Unistrut’ type is one of these and using it allows us to easily create structural members like the ones shown in the image below and left. The Weldment tools speed up the creation of even the most complex structures. However, due to the way the system ....

The Sketch Driven Pattern Feature
Wednesday May 7, 2014 at 4:37pm

Read on to see how the Sketch Driven pattern can be used for irregular pattern arrays. An often forgotten feature within SOLIDWORKS, sketch driven pattern is extremely useful if a repeated feature is patterned on a planar face without a singular directional vector, or ‘irregular’ spacing. Take this simple example; the aim is to create an array of tapped holes at irregular intervals where the linear pattern would not be applicable- unless it was done with many features.

Assembly Configurations - Two Vitally Important Ch
Thursday April 17, 2014 at 10:36am

Being on the support desk exposes you to many ways of applying different techniques in SOLIDWORKS.   While making changes between configurations, a customer was finding that mates were sometimes over defining the assembly, or that too many parts were appearing in certain configurations and not at all in others, leaving the models coming out looking a mess like this.      The key here are the two Advanced Options found in the Configuration Property manager highlighted ....

Exporting Multi-body Parts to an Assembly
Thursday April 10, 2014 at 10:29am

The multibody part environment is a huge strength of SOLIDWORKS- the diverse range of features we provide in the part mode, means that you can gain fully detailed designs without having to even explore the assembly mode- there may be examples where you wish to convert multibodies to assemblies though- for example: Animations; assigning part numbers; assembly specific features. In this blog we explore some of the ways to do this.   1- Insert into New Part   This option allows you to....

A New Way to Communicate Concept Designs
Wednesday March 19, 2014 at 10:06am

SOLIDWORKS PhotoView 360 2014 adds some new non photorealistic options for your output. The first thing that springs to mind for me is to communicate concept designs. Rather than dusting off the marker pens you  can create a quick concept image in SOLIDWORKS.   To enable the option on the Render Tools tab, select Options.      Next tick Contour/Cartoon Rendering and use the drop down to pick the new Cartoon Style. This will appear on the preview renders unlike the....

How to Obtain Pin Slip Force in SOLIDWORKS Simulat
Wednesday March 19, 2014 at 9:10am

Many engineering applications require the use of pins which hold components together by an interference or friction fit.  Knowing how much force it takes to make the pin slip is a key area of the design.    This can be obtained in using SOLIDWORKS Simulation, although the approach requires a bit of thought.  Here we have a pin held in a housing…     Using a “shrink fit” with friction on the contacting faces stresses the two components.&nbs....

Flat Pattern Not Working in Drawing
Friday March 14, 2014 at 4:54pm

Whilst on support the other day I came across a question which I come across at least once a week, Why is the flat pattern not coming through to the drawing even though the view is set to flat pattern ?   Usually the reason for the flat pattern not coming through to the drawing sheet is not completely understanding what SOLIDWORKS completes in the background. So here goes- I will explain what is happening in the background and give a few best practices to ensure the setup is correct. &nb....

Surface Model a Rubber Duck!!

The weldments feature set in SOLIDWORKS is a powerful way of generating geometry off the back of standard profiles- whether this be tube, box section or channels. We have always had to rely on creating each profile variant as a separate profile sketch which is then saved to be used for the Structural Member feature.    Looking back at the 2013 downloadable profiles, the ANSI standard has 233 files to download, manage and customise! Now in 2014 SOLIDWORKS has streamlined this process,....
