SOLIDWORKS 2017 Top 11 Features: Combine Rendering and Simulation Results

February 27, 2017

Designers and engineers already love SOLIDWORKS Simulation for its ability to set up real-world environments. But what if they could take these comprehensive simulation results and blending them with photo renderings? Now, they can.

With new advancements in SOLIDWORKS 2017, users can get the best of both worlds and combine rendering and simulation results. Here’s how:

Managing SOLIDWORKS Plastics Results

January 11, 2017

Recently, I was reviewing one of Keith’s articles about Simulation file structure and moving files. While these are great articles, I noticed he skipped over a simulation software that is near and dear to my heart: SOLIDWORKS Plastics! So, to correct this oversite, let me give you a primer on managing your SOLIDWORKS Plastics studies.

Medieval Battles Meet Robots At The FIRST STRONGHOLD Competition

December 30, 2016

This month, students from around the world competed for glory in FIRST STRONGHOLD. In just six weeks, high school students built, programmed and tested robots with the guidance of adult mentors.

FIRST STRONGHOLD was meant to replicate a medieval battle, with robots raising portcullises, lowering drawbridges, scaling towers, crossing moats, and of course, launching cannon balls into the enemy tower. With so many elements, versatility was a key motivation in design.

Make Your Own Solution: Kid-Approved Backyard Swing Set

December 15, 2016

When my son turned five, my wife and I decided it was time for him to have his own swing set in our backyard. There was only one problem: we couldn’t find one that we liked. One kit was too small. Another was missing the monkey bars. Nothing was quite what we had in mind.
