Cleaning Up Freeform Faces in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer

I’ve been working on a project lately that has a lot of complex curved faces.  What am I working on you ask?  Just be patient, you’ll see one day soon enough!  Cryptic I know.  Anyway, after several attempts in SOLIDWORKS using a lot of the same techniques I discussed in my previous blogs Deadpool’s Minor Surface Flaws – Part 1, Deadpool’s Minor Surface Flaws – Part 2, and Deadpool’s Minor Surface Flaws – Part 3 – THE FINAL SHOWDOWN (ISH?), I decided to give SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer a try.  SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer is a really cool tool that gives you the ability to push and pull faces to shape your design using sub-division modeling.  You can extrude faces out from the freeform shape to help get non-standard geometry (i.e. something other than a cube, sphere, cone, etc), you can sub-divide faces to get...

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. Old Dog New Trick

Solver Window 1SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation software is an established Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis tool.  Flow Simulation offers users internal and external analysis of fluid systems. Steady State,Transient, and conjugate heat transfer solutions are standard with Flow Simulation.  Flow Simulation works seamlessly inside of SOLIDWORKS and offers a straight forward, easy to use interface.  The results are post processed right inside the SOLIDWORKS/Flow window. Flow Simulation has been a part of SOLIDWORKS for 20 years and has a history dating back to the space race.  Users just beginning, and veterans alike know about Flow Simulation's ease of use, accurate results, and fast solution times.  Long time users like myself know about the ins and outs of Flow, as well as the little hidden niceties within the interface.  Recently one of those niceties was brought to my attention by SOLIDWORKS Simulation Technical Manager Joe...

See what is really happening inside your fluid system with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation


Air Flow Bench 13DVision Technologies has just launched a new webinar series titled HOW TO SOLVE IT.  This webinar series is designed to help make you Better, Faster, and Smarter.  This series takes place on the first three Wednesdays of the month at 10:00 AM.  Last weeks webinar described use of advanced pattering techniques, and was titled HOW TO SOLVE IT: Create Complex Design Features by Using Patterns in SOLIDWORKS.     This weeks webinar addresses how engineers traditionally analyzed and designed fluid flow systems.  Flow benches and fluid flow labs traditionally are used to understand pressure differentials in a system, velocities at given probe points, and other flow characteristics.  The problem with these devices is that the engineer does not get to see inside system.  The only information relayed is the information gathered by the pilot tubes, or pressure gauges.  Think of a gasoline engines...
