Remember back when you took Engineering Statics and you had to find the forces by hand calculations? You may have said to yourself, why do I have to solve all this by hand when we now have simulation software to get the answers we need. Well, that is true that simulation software can be used to get the answers, but how would you use the software to find unknown forces? Hopefully after reading this blog, I will have cleared the […]
New for 2014, The ability to save multiple result plots in one E-Drawings file. Previously the result plots needed to be saved in individual E-Drawings files. This caused more files to be generated and shared than need be. To generate multiple result file plots in one E-Drawings file follow this procedure. Show all plots desired to be included in the E-Drawings file Right Mouse Button on the Results Folder and Select Save Image ] E-Drawings Save Image Choose the E-Drawings […]

Welcome back to our second deep dive blog series. If you missed the first series, be sure to go back and check out "How to configure SOLIDWORKS Toolbox and Hole Wizard". Today we are going to take a closer look at the CAD ADMIN DASHBOARD and how this can be used to track, review, and troubleshoot machines in your organization that have SOLIDWORKS installed. This series will breakdown: What is the CAD ADMIN DASHBOARD How do you organize this data […]
With each new release there are always a few additions to SOLIDWORKS Simulation that catch my eye. This year’s 2014 release is no different. I’ll write about several of the enhancements over the coming months but I’m going to start with the conversion of Toolbox fasteners into Simulation connectors. Using connectors in Simulation allows us to replace physical components with virtual ones which will reduce the time required to solve the analysis. In Simulation 2013 and prior, there are a […]
For customers with a network installation of SOLIDWORKS, one of the first steps is to upgrade the SolidNetWork License Manager on the server. Here are the steps to download the SolidNetWork License Manager 2014 installation file.
Get ready, SOLIDWORKS 2014 SP 0 should be available on Monday for download. CATI is in the middle of the rollout presentations, and it may not be too late for you to attend. One of the enhancements that I think you will all enjoy is not found in the What's New document. Most people will probably miss it. When you do download your installation you will see that the download size is now 2GB smaller!!! You no longer have to […]
Last week at SOLIDWORKS World 2013, SOLIDWORKS shared three glimpses into the future of its products. Mechanical Conceptual Preview Top Ten List SOLIDWORKS 2014 Preview Mechanical Conceptual Preview It’s a mouthful of a name, but it’s a brand new product that’s been in the works for the last few years. It’s SolidWorks’ very first product that will be based on Dassault Systèmes’ 3D Experience platform, and it’s designed to compliment SOLIDWORKS by taking care of the upfront conceptual design stages.
