Handling Interferences for Meshing in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

If you’ve ever run into the case where you get the following message, seen below in Image 1: “At least two bodies are interfering. Do you want to check interference?” Image 1: Detected bodies that are interfering.  Agghhh! And I’m pretty sure that you have, so as you know it can be really frustrating.  So […]


Designing Printed Circuit Boards More Efficiently

When designing Printed Circuit Boards, we need software that handles designs ranging from simple to complex engineering challenges. SOLIDWORKS PCB is a powerful, yet very flexible, system that allows you to design faster and more efficiently. For example, when you need a simple capability such as designing different and flexible Grid Systems for placing components, […]


SOLIDWORKS Smart Components

One of the great benefits of SOLIDWORKS is the way you can capture work and re-use it many times over. There’s no better way of capturing work then by creating and using Smart Components. You’re probably asking yourself what’s a Smart Component? Is it something new recently added to SOLIDWORKS? Nope. Smart components have been […]
