SOLIDWORKS Image Quality settings have the biggest impact on file size and system performance. We always assumed that it would have an impact on overall performance also. The effect varies widely across different files, so we decided to do SOLIDWORKS... Continued
Each year our users give us thousands of their best ideas and our development team delivers! Let’s take a look at four highlights in SOLIDWORKS 2020 that will enhance every user’s experience. Have you ever wished you could compress, extend,... Continued
The SOLIDWORKS Large Design Review mode is essential when working with large assemblies. Models can be opened in a fraction of time for quick review and then load only the components you need to work on. Use tools like snapshots or walk-through... Continued
This is Part 2 of a two-part SOLIDWORKS tutorial for a Gingerbread Train Set. This tutorial demonstrates the use of path mates, to create a motion analysis of a train set that moves through the application of path motors to create a simulation of a toy train set. You will need to have watched part 1 of this tutorial if you want to see how to add reference points to parts ready for a motion analysis.
The accessories, tracks and carriages for this tutorial are available available to download from the description.
Within SOLIDWORKS, materials can be easily applied to a model giving it a distinguished appearance, as well as the ability to perform real-world calculations. In fact, there are hundreds of materials to choose from, but sometimes the ones we want... Continued
