Up To Reference
Thursday February 19, 2015 at 10:17am

“Up to Reference” is a new option in the linear pattern feature that allows you to create intelligent patterns. The “Up to Reference” option allows you to select an edge, vertex or face as a reference to control how many instances will be created at a fixed spacing. An offset from that reference is also available to maintain proper spacing from the end reference. If the location of the reference is moved, the number of instances is recalculated.

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....

PhotoView 360 2014 added many new enhancements, one that wasn’t mentioned in the What’s New guide was Ambient Occlusion output.   Ambient occlusion allows you to visualise areas of a design where light struggles to reach and can be used either on its own as a alternative output style or to bring added depth in terms of shadows to your render.   First you have to turn the output of ambient occlusion on, this is on the Render Tools tab > Options. Then tick ambient occ....

HOWZAT!!! Our nation will soon be in mourning when the Australian cricket team claw back those coveted ashes. How can our acclaimed 11 be blown away with such ease by the Aussie bowlers? It is tempting to be critical when you see the ultra-slow-mo of the ball making a mess of the stumps or that little nick to the slips, but consider, for a moment, the speed of events. Mitchell Johnson is hurling the leather at 95 mph. A simple calc tells me that the ball travels the 22 yards from bowler's h....

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 tool which on the face of it seems a relatively minor enhancement, but digging deeper it will be of huge benefit to the customer base.   So what is and and how is it used?   First thing you could do is check out the help documentation o....
