Using SolidWorks drawings in SolidWorks Electrical can be extremely beneficial, and the drawing tools in SolidWorks are incredibly powerful. Typically, we work with our schematics in our 2D application and our 3D assemblies in SolidWorks, while accessing the same database. In this example, we will … [Read more...] about Using SolidWorks Drawings in SolidWorks Electrical Projects
Why? Well, many of you have offered your feedback in the past such as: "I would love to take training but I just can't be away from the office that long" "I really wish I could take more of your training but I just can’t justify the cost of travel". Symmetry’s online SOLIDWORKS training … [Read more...] about SOLIDWORKS Online Training is Here!
Living in the oil and gas industrial landscape of Alberta, Canada, I use SolidWorks Routing almost as often as I dream of hot summer days (quite often). However, almost all of my experience with the SolidWorks Routing tools are built on using the default piping and tubing library installed with … [Read more...] about SolidWorks Routing – Custom Components and the Piping & Tubing Database

It was 12:30AM, and I was on my way home from an indoor soccer game. (I know what’s going through your mind: “Why is this guy playing soccer at 12:30AM?” Well…it’s just the way this league works – and yes, it makes it tough to be at work at 8AM the next day.) Anyways, before hitting the hay I … [Read more...] about NVIDIA GRID VCA: Using SolidWorks in the Cloud
Whether you’re a seasoned SolidWorks Simulation veteran, new to the software, or even just evaluating how it would fit into your design process, you've probably asked one or both of these questions about SolidWorks Simulation: “Can I _______with SolidWorks Simulation?” “How Do I _______ with … [Read more...] about SolidWorks World 2014
Sink marks are areas in a molded part where the surface is deformed into a depression. The depressions typically occur in areas of thick geometry and are caused by uneven cooling of the injection material. Potentially problematic geometry would include areas where features such as a rib or boss … [Read more...] about Avoiding Sink Marks with SolidWorks Plastics
During the design of an electrical project, we typically need to add marks to call out our wires. This can be done through a predefined numbering scheme. SolidWorks Electrical has built-in tools to quickly label all of the wires in the project. We’ll examine a few of these tools. The schematic … [Read more...] about SolidWorks Electrical Quick Tip – Numbering Wires
