This week we’re going to start a new deep-dive into methods for closing off our surfaces in SolidWorks. Because there are so many scenarios, we’re going to break it down into a few of the most often used methods.
In the fourth installment of our new ‘Cadjunkie Hump Day Series’ we’ll continue our work on splines with the goal of becoming a curve-controlling Spline Ninja. This week we’ll review a few of our traditional spline creation methods and introduce a new method, the ‘Style Spline’.
In this third installment of our new ‘Hump Day’ series we’ll continue to work on our methods of connecting two splines that we started our first week. This week we’ll take a look at an alternate method for SolidWorks 2014 users that gives us more control than the methods we’ve looked at thus far in the series called the ‘Style Spline’.
In this second installment of our new ‘Hump Day’ series we’ll continue to work on connecting our two splines that we started on last week. As you’ll recall, last week we left off with a slight ‘hump’ in our resulting connected spline. This week we’ll take a look at how to further finesse our connected result into one seamless and smooth curve.
Greetings cadjunkies! In this new ‘Hump Day’ series we’ll be presenting some of the most common questions we get asked over at cadjunkie HQ. This week we’re taking a look at connecting two separate splines into one beautiful clean spline.
Now that we have our pitcher modeled, we can actually measure the liquid volume inside of it and adjust accordingly. In this video, we’ll take a look at a couple of different scaling methods to find the exact volume that we need in order to have our pitcher fit one liter of liquid.
Greetings cadjunkies! In this quick series, we’re going to take a look at the new SolidWorks Power Surfacing plug-in using a pitcher as a simple example. Additionally, we’ll take a look at scaling our pitcher to hold exactly one liter of liquid by performing some crafty SolidWorks moves. Ready? Let’s hit it!
While Luxion Keyshot and other CAD render packages work wonders for a LOT of industrial designers, there are some who may want a little bit more control over their presentation options—including animations. For most, Luxology’s modo is the solution for total light and rigging control when rendering out stills or animations for their presentations. In this video, we’ll take a look at importing a SolidWorks model into modo, as well as using CAD loaders and working with modo to create a jaw-dropping final product visualization from our original SolidWorks model.
MakerBot’s MakerWare is becoming an increasingly common platform for setting up 3D printed files. But how do you get from a final SolidWorks assembly to a 3D printed part? In this video, we’ll go over the best practices for exporting STL files for not just MakerWare, but for 3D printing in general.
Oftentimes you may be working with people (yourself included) who prefer to use modo for specific tasks. The wall between Rhino and SolidWorks file types can get quite murky though when file types get disorganized or are wrong altogether. In this video, we’ll take a look at the best practices for working with files between SolidWorks and Rhino.
Export to SolidWorks? Didn’t we build it in SolidWorks? YES we did folks, but there are times when you may need to adjust your file type to suit legacy versions of SolidWorks (such as opening a 2012 file in 2011), or creating a file for another specific purpose. In this video, we’ll take a look at some of these file types and best practices for import/export options.
Well, we did it folks! AMPY is officially built! But what if you want to show AMPY to other people? In this video, we’ll take a look at adjusting the viewport displays for presenting AMPY within SolidWorks to a colleague, as well as creating drawings to export to an engineer or for manufacturing purposes.
