Improving Workflow With Exploded Flat View in SOLIDWORKS

May 30, 2018

In many industries, quick manufacturing turnaround is an important element of the design process. When sending an assembly with multiple 2D flat components to a cutting machine, organizing and outputting these profiles can be tedious. If your workflow involves exporting these profiles as part of one drawing, the traditional technique is to create a view of each component, which can later be exported to a 2D format. For a faster alternative, keep reading!

The Hidden Treasure Trove of Sketching Tools

May 21, 2018

We all have our favorites in the diverse arsenal of SOLIDWORKS sketching tools. However, for most, those favorites all shine on the CommandManager, taking the spotlight, right at the top of our screen. This spot is well deserved by most of the icons that are found here, but when it comes to sketching tools in SOLIDWORKS, there is more than meets the eye. Many powerful tools made for the sketching environment are under-utilized. In this blog, we dive into some of these tools and how they work.

SOLIDWORKS Rx Problem Capture: Part 2

May 3, 2018

In part one of this two-part blog, we discussed the SOLIDWORKS Rx tool and the steps for recording your problem while using the software. Using this technique to capture information often requires the issue to be repeatable. But, what if the behavior itself is inconsistent? Fortunately, we can still gather most of the information captured by SOLIDWORKS Rx, after the fact!

SOLIDWORKS Rx Problem Reporting: Part 1

May 2, 2018

The SOLDIWORKS Rx tool is a feature that is automatically installed with SOLIDWORKS software. However, many users are unaware of its benefits. It easily captures video and information for troubleshooting problems and checks your systems performance. It also allows you to run tests and compare your results with other SOLIDWORKS users. In this two part blog we will dive into the SOLDIWORKS Rx tool and how to use it to help solve issues that can arise while using the software.

Ballooning Placeholder, Dummy and Hidden Parts in SOLIDWORKS Drawings

March 26, 2018

Sometimes our assemblies require additional components or items that may not be visible within the actual 3D SOLIDWORKS assembly. I encountered a question from a customer who was using a sealant on an O-ring in their design. They still wanted to track the usage of this sealant on their Bill of Materials (BOM) but didn’t feel it was necessary to create a 3D component for it within the SOLIDWORKS assembly.
