When 3D printing, you can sometimes run into issues trying to work with extremely thin features. Most of the time, good design practices can help to fix these issues. Two GrabCAD tools, the Thick and Thin Wall command and the Variable Width Fill command aid in resolving these issues more efficiently, leaving you with a sturdy, high-quality design.
In this video, Application Engineer Ricky Shannon demonstrates just how to utilize these built-in tools on a multi-bodied SOLIDWORKS part using a straight 3D CAD file.
SOLIDWORKS Visualize has a great selection of material appearances right out of the box. It allows users to improve upon the standard SOLIDWORKS appearances and make their renderings look amazing. More choices are never a bad thing, and in 2019, SOLIDWORKS added support for NVIDIA MDL materials to SOLIDWORKS Visualize.
