Introduction to SOLIDWORKS Inspection

One of the most important, but often underappreciated, tasks of releasing a product is the inspection process.  It can be a long, laborious job, often done manually.  You could have the greatest new idea and design everything perfectly (hopefully in SOLIDWORKS!), but if you use parts that do not meet your specifications, it will not matter.  So why treat that process like you are all the way back in 2013? In 2014, Solidworks introduced Solidworks Inspection, to help you streamline the creation of your inspection documentation.  It will help you take those tedious tasks of manually ballooning drawings and creating and filling out inspection reports, and reduce them to a fraction of the time.  Let’s take a look now at how quick and easy that is to do. When you have native Solidworks drawings, and the Inspection Add-In loaded, you can...

Underconstrained Body Detection in 2016 SOLIDWORKS Simulation

Underconstrained Bodies Light2016 SOLIDWORKS Simulation has added enhancements to make the engineers life easier. One of the enhancements is the Underconstrained Bodies tool.  This tool allows the engineer to quickly and easily find the underconstrained bodies in their assembly, or multi body part.   We have all seen the error message "model is unstable" before causing us to scratch are heads and revisit the model and simulation setup.  Prior to 2016 the steps taken to underconstrained this error would have been as follows. Switch to the model tab of SOLIDWORKS and "Interference Detection" on the Evaluate command manager tab.  Use the "treat coincidence as interference" option to see where the Automatic Bonded contact is applied.  Any area that is not shown in coincidence will not have the Global Bonded Contact applied. Under the study properties, turn on "Use Soft Springs".  Soft Springs applies...

SOLIDWORKS Xpress tools, FloXpress

How often do you take advantage of the Xpress tools in SOLIDWORKS?  Maybe the better question is do you know about the Xpress tools in SOLIDWORKS?  If you’re not familiar with them, they are SimulationXpress, FloXpress and DriveWorksXpress. Each of these tools can have a place in your product development processes, if you take advantage of them.  Briefly, their capabilities are as follows: SimulationXpress provides part-only Finite Element Analysis, FloXpress provides internal flow Computational Fluid Dynamics and DriveWorksXpress is a powerful design automation tool.  I recommend you take a look at each to see how you can begin to leverage their capabilities.  One quick side note… you can learn more about the DriveWorks products or read about Gemma’s whirlwind trip to the USA to demonstrate DriveWorksXpress at four SOLIDWORKS User Group meetings in four nights!  I’m going to focus on FloXpress...

Converting & Offsetting Just Got a Whole lot Easier!

image 1A great new enhancement in SOLIDWORKS 2016 that is sure to save you a lot of time with OFFSETTING and CONVERTING entities into sketches is the ability to SELECT INNER LOOPS. As you can see in the example below, all you need to do now is select the face and choose the new SELECT ALL INNER LOOPS button (or the Inner Loops One by One option) and you will get the inner and outer selections of the face!  Previously, you had to select the internal loops of an entity one by one with the Convert Entities tool.       The result could then easily be used to make a gasket for the face in this example in MUCH less time than it would have taken in previous versions of SOLIDWORKS. This new functionality is also available with the OFFSET command... GREAT...

Need to Know a Force but Only Have a Value for Displacement? No Problem.

Force LadderAs engineers we face common force control problems throughout our design process. Designing a deck? We can calculate the dead load based on number of people, furniture, materials etc.. Designing a door handle? We can estimate the amount of force an adult would apply. Designing a fan blade?  We know the torque applied by the motor.  The above are examples of force applied problems.  We give the software the load (force, torque, pressure) and we receive insight into the stress, strain, and displacement resulting from the load.  This is the common application we think of when using Finite Element Analysis(FEA).  However what happens when we need to know a force but only have a value for displacement? With SOLIDWORKS Simulation this is no problem.   Let us take the following scenario into consideration.  As a design engineer for a ladder manufacturer...
