Webinar Wednesday 9/20/2017 - If you do complex analysis and find yourself pushing the capabilities in SOLIDWORKS Simulation, then it may be time to consider SIMULIA Abaqus. SIMULIA Abaqus is a tool best suited for intricate analysis with advanced physics. In this webinar, Ryan Magruder, Analysis Services Engineer, will demonstrate several workflows that allow a current user of SOLIDWORKS Simulation to quickly and easily make the transition to Abaqus. By using the SOLIDWORKS Associative Interface, Ryan will demonstrate how to export your existing Simulation studies to Abaqus. You’ll gain valuable insights into which analysis tool is best suited for your needs.

Have you ever wanted to create a pattern of an object in an assembly, but also have every instance slightly rotated from the last? In models such as a spiral staircase, it can be time consuming to create all the features separately to achieve one simple task. For example, first a circle would have to be sketched. Then, a Helix and Spiral would be needed to create the curved shape.  After that, a Curve Driven Pattern could be used as the final step.  Now with SOLIDWORKS 2018, an enhancement to the Linear Pattern feature in assemblies has been created that allows this to be done in one step!

Webinar Wednesday 9/13/2017: SOLIDWORKS Composer is a powerful tool for utilizing 3D CAD assets for documentation, animation and other visual deliverables. Getting off to the right start is critical for streamlined operations and seamless project updating. Join Applications Engineer, John Slipec, for our fourth installment of the Composer Core Concepts Series. In this webinar, John will cover best practices and pro-tips for creating, using and reusing 2D authoring elements such as annotations, arrows, exploded lines and images. These simple, yet powerful 2D elements can be used numerous times and can provide assistance to your 3D designs, clearly illustrating every step of the documentation. You will also learn how to leverage your 2D authoring elements to best tell your story in 3D.

If you’re currently using SOLIDWORKS Composer for creating technical documentation and 3D animations then you already know there is no easier tool available for automating the animation process. SOLIDWORKS has now taken this a huge step further by including pre-canned animation templates. With the new Animation Workshop automatic animation can be easily applied to any part, assembly, or grouping. SOLIDWORKS is once again making life just a little bit easier by automating commonly used actions.

The bounding box is an indispensable piece of reference geometry in SOLIDWORKS, representing the smallest area or volume in which a design can fit. While available in weldment and sheet metal models for many years, creating a bounding box for a standard part has required convoluted workarounds – until now. New in SOLIDWORKS 2018, bounding boxes can be created for standard parts with just a few clicks, enabling you to quickly find the maximum dimensions of your design and use the automatically-generated file properties as needed. To emphasize the utility of the bounding box, an organic shape will be used.
