You Need to Use SOLIDWORKS Shortcuts

Life is full of shortcuts but those typically don’t work out well for anyone.  Well that’s not the case with SOLIDWORKS shortcuts.  There are many places to use shortcuts in parts and sketches. Think about how you create a model in SOLIDWORKS.  You choose a sketch plane, start a sketch, find a sketch entity to use, add some dimensions, then extrude that sketch into a feature. You do this over and over again until the model is created.  But during […]

If you’re into home improvements like I am, it’s that time of the year to start designing your summer projects.  It’s going to be another eventful year at the Tadic household as I plan to have my dream garage/studio built.  This is all possible due to a local vocational school that has offered to build it for only $500 (I will have to pay for all materials).  Normally, I’d be pretty skeptical about a service like this, but fortunately I […]

Divergence and Convergence for Simulation Results

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Divergence in a model  leads to a stress quantity that continually increases as the user refines the mesh globally or in areas of localized high stress.  Divergence is typically encountered when the load transfer concentrates in the geometry at a sharp corner. The stress will continue to rise based on its own definition; Stress=Force/Area With a sharp corner the area becomes, zero.  This drives the stress value upwards with each new, tighter mesh. In manufacturing a perfect edge does not […]

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

In Essentials class this week, one of the attendees was very impressed with the Dynamic Clearance option available when using ‘Move Component’ in an assembly.  He commented that neither he nor the few other Engineers and Designers he works with knew about this functionality.  Considering this attendees’ company designs and manufactures non-static equipment, I am somewhat surprised. As a refresher, the Dynamic Clearance option is available when using ‘Move Component’ on the Assembly Command Manager tab.  After you select ‘Move […]
