    Topology Optimization in SOLIDWORKS

    June 21, 2018

    Having an optimized design is one of the most important things to nearly every SOLIDWORKS designer. Typically, this means the most lightweight design that still gets the job done. In this Video Tech Tip, we walk through the process of how to use Topology Optimization to come up with the most optimal shape.

    Submodeling - the Magnifying Glass for SOLIDWORKS Simulation

    June 1, 2017

    When running a SOLIDWORKS Simulation on particularly complex geometries, it can be especially useful to use a technique called Submodeling. Using Submodeling is like having a magnifying glass to zoom in on small areas of stress, solve them independently, and get highly accurate results.

    The Golden Ratio in SOLIDWORKS

    March 30, 2017

    Most people know about the Golden Ratio—a specific ratio of a rectangle's length to width that can be divided into rectangles with the same ratio. But many do not know how to use the Golden Ratio in SOLIDWORKS.
