Presentation Transcript

  1. SolidWorks Tips and Tricks Phil Sluder TriAxial Design and Analysis If a topic cannot be explained in a freshman lecture,it is not yet fully understood… - Richard Feynman

  2. A History of SolidWorks Tips and Tricks

  3. Fillet Select Through Faces Option… and What’s Wrong with the Fillet Expert

  4. Split Line Across Multiple Bodies (Wait, did he put a surface in there?)

  5. Now you’ll never forget how Pierce works

  6. Successful Helical Tubing

  7. Merge Result Checked / Unchecked and Previous Bodies Also: Combine, Common Weldment

  8. Any Shape Detail View

  9. Relinking Referenced Files – Part Referenced in Assembly / Drawing Win Explorer Scenarios • Alternate Part into Existing Assembly (use Replace Components) • Alternate Part into Existing Drawing • Part Renamed • Part Moved • Part Deleted (open Quick View)

  10. Save As Assembly with References (Ugh!) Quick Review: What is In-Context Part / Assembly with References? Cleaned Up 2011

  11. Capture Assembly Steps (All Inside Exploded View)

  12. Create Bill of Materials, edit part numbers / custom properties, all in the assembly. • Basics; Parts Info vs. Assembly Info • Don’t ask me again… • Oh wait, how do I get that back? • Silly = Annotation, Notes, Border trick (Circular Default) • Open part from Bill of Materials • Use existing Bill of Materials in drawing

  13. Wires and Tubing when Exploding the Assembly

  14. Insert, Cut, Sweep, Solid Sweep 60min

  15. Drawing Annotation; Area Hatch and Convert Entities

  16. Isometric Section Views

  17. As Manufactured - As Stocked - As Assembled

  18. Springs in an Assembly (Engineer’s Solution) f = k *x f = .87 * (2.25 – 2.10) f = .13 f = k *x f = .87 * (2.25 – .90) f = 1.17

  19. OK, OK… I’ll Do An Animated Spring

  20. Drawings without “Artifacts”

  21. Pesky Filleting Problem (Forget the FilletExpert) Faith Based Feature

  22. Everything (well, not everything)… But lots of stuff turns out to be useful. Richard Feynman

  23. Base Part / Derived Part(s) / Assembly • Insert Into New Part – No Feature • Insert, Part – No Feature • Save Bodies, Create Assembly - Feature • Split, Create Assembly - Feature

  24. Relinking Referenced Files – In-Context Features within Top-Down Assembly Scenarios • Assembly Renamed, Assembly Moved • Assembly Deleted - > ? • Manually break references (at Part) • Sketch Plane • InPlace Mate • Geometric Relationships • Sketch Dimensions, Shape, Location • Up to Surface Conditions, Flat / Curved
