Imagine you have a model with thousands of faces that you need to add draft, how do you select all of them? Here is a great tip from our good friend Alin Vargatu, from Javelin. Here he shows how you can quickly select all faces on your model that need their draft modified. [youtube]http://youtu.be/5QQOmqqqUkI[/youtube] I love Alin’s work. I’ve been begging him to give a little blog love to those of us who live south of the border for years. […]

How does SOLIDWORKS Plastics save you money? SOLIDWORKS Simulation has always been thought of as a useful tool to help determine things such as whether a design is going to break, withstand heat, survive a drop, or withstand certain frequencies. This helps save money by limiting the number of expensive prototypes which must be built to prove a design. When it comes to injection molded parts, SOLIDWORKS Plastics does the same thing, as creating a bad mold that produces bad […]

Some typical reasons a part cannot be successfully scaled.  #1. The part contains a rebuild error. Ctrl+Q the part with 'Verification on rebuild' enabled. If a feature failure is presented, this could well be the cause of the scale failure.    #2. The part fails a geometry check. If the part can be regenerated with 'Verification on rebuild' enabled and no failures are presented, Goto a Tools > Check dialog. This will show you any geometric faults, ( bad geometry). If […]
