SOLIDWORKS Time-Lapse Tutorial: Grabber

The key to designing and 3D printing complex designs is problem solving. Coming up with an awesome idea, figuring out how in the world you going to make it and the hooray moment when the print finishes. This awesome grabber we have created shows how that can be achieved. We wanted to have a device which can […]


What 3D printing Technology Should You Use For Prototyping

When designing a new product the best way to get an idea how it will look or feel like in the real world is to produce a prototype. A few years back this would be done in a workshop or outsourced outside of the company. This takes time and can create risk of your early […]


SOLIDWORKS Support Monthly News – July 2018

Hello to all, Welcome to this new edition of the SOLIDWORKS Support Monthly News, co-authored by members of the SOLIDWORKS Technical Support teams worldwide. SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Coandă effect By Julien Boissat Free Surface is one of the coolest features to be added in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation in years. It allows two-phase flows, like water […]

Understanding Plastic Part Design

Plastic parts are now commonplace in consumer product design, and for good reason. Highly durable, endless color options and of course, an inexpensive option when manufactured in high volumes.  For the engineering and design team at URB-E, it was a no brainier to utilize plastic components for the fenders and battery hub in order to […]


Learn How to Apply Toleranes on a Single Feature in SOLIDWORKS MBD

The DimXpert tools in SOLIDWORKS MBD allow you to dimension your parts and assemblies with 3D annotations in order to communicate requirements directly in 3D for the manufacturing process. DimXpert dimensions can show widths, lengths, diameters, and several other features and tolerances so you can fully represent your part. But what if one section of […]


Concept to Consumer Tour Will Break Down Lifecycle of URB-E Project

In the very beginning stages of design, ideas are commonly sketched out on paper; also known as “napkin sketches” due to the common practice of sketching at the local watering hole. This convenient method is ideal for visualizing our thoughts quickly but doesn’t allow us to prove out positioning and motion behaviors. A major design […]

Tech in Football: How Yamabiko Europe Scored with SOLIDWORKS

Thirty-two teams. Sixty-four games. One trophy. It all kicks off, quite literally, this June. Not merely a thrilling global display of elite athletic prowess, the world-famous football tournament is a carefully orchestrated exercise in preparation and management. From travel to turnstiles, from broadcast to blades of grass, every facet of this sporting spectacular requires precision […]

WHAT IF Thomas Edison used SOLIDWORKS?

Thomas Edison has over one thousand patents to his name (individual or joint), 1,093 to be exact.  Most notably for the light bulb, the phonograph, and an initial motion picture concept.  He was also very famous in his early 30s and throughout his 84 years.  He also had innovations in manufacturing and was a savvy […]

The Dawn of the Mechatronics Product Designs

Product performance and capabilities are evolving exponentially, design and technologies are becoming more challenging, and market/business pressure are constantly mounting. These factors are driving the need for cohesive, adaptive design capabilities for today’s products that can only be produced effectively through purpose-built mechatronics software. With the dawn of the Mechatronics product design, the day of […]
