Back in February, we shared a sneak peek at new features and capabilities that were likely to be released in SOLIDWORKS 2021. We’re excited to share not only what made the cut, but everything new across the entire SOLIDWORKS portfolio.
New SOLIDWORKS users may be wondering what files should be used, when those files should be used, and when should they be doing what. In this article, we'll go over some SOLIDWORKS basics - let's start with terminology.
When a Stratasys 3D printer receives a SOLIDWORKS file with overlapping or touching geometry, it will print the two or more parts together as if they were one component. That is not ideal for a real-life moving assembly with separate components that articulate against one another. In this article, we share some insights for what to expect when you design an assembly in SOLIDWORKS and 3D print it on an FDM 3D printer.
In this article, you'll learn serial number management skills every SOLIDWORKS user and admin should have. We'll focus mostly on standalone serials, but address network serial numbers and how they differ from standalone.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation is capable of simulating a nonuniform pressure gradient. This allows for a
simulation setup on a model that would approximate the pressure of water on the inside of a tank
or against a dike.
Template files for parts, assemblies, and drawings are the storage location for default environmental settings used when creating new files. These control the items such as unit
systems, drafting standards, first/third projection angles of drawings, dimension formatting, annotation formatting, image quality of parts, and many more options.
Temporary files can be obtained to run the server-side SOLIDWORKS SolidNetWork License Administrator for the purposes of testing new server hardware while not interrupting a running production server.
When designing components for use in larger assemblies it becomes important to optimize the
part’s feature design to minimize its impact on the rebuild time of the assembly at large. In this
case a great deal of processor/rebuild time can be spent on pattern features if they are not
SOLIDWORKS Make is a module brought to you by the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace. It is an app that allows for a seamless way to get components manufactured by collaborating with digital manufacturers nearby and across the globe.
