1 1 Dumb Solids: Make them your friend in SolidWorks Lars Christensen

2 2 Presentation Roadmap… Solids vs. Surfaces File Format Importing into SolidWorks Dumb Solid Power Tools FeatureWorks

3 3 Solids vs. Surfaces… Imported Surfaces Imported Solids Solid Tools Surface Tools

4 4 Solids vs. Surfaces…

5 5 File Format… Most of these will be imported as Dumb Solids, but some are better than others.

6 6 File Format… Whats the best way to import files into SolidWorks? (Top 3 formats)

7 7 File Format… 3.IGES

8 8 File Format… 2.STEP 3.IGES

9 9 File Format… 1.Parasolid 2.STEP 3.IGES

10 10 File Format… 1.Parasolid 2.STEP 3.IGES Stopped development in 1996 ISO AP 242 scheduled for 2012 X_T better then X_B

11 11 File Formats STEPIGES

12 12 Pop Quiz! Name That Movie! I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

13 13 File Format… SolidWorks File 6 Parts to Any SolidWorks File

14 14 Translators and converting… SolidWorks File Geometry

15 15 Translators and converting… SolidWorks File Geometry Topology

16 16 Translators and converting… SolidWorks File Geometry Topology Display Data 4 5 6

17 17 Translators and converting… SolidWorks File Geometry Topology Display DataFeature History 5 6

18 18 Translators and converting… SolidWorks File Geometry Topology Display Data Meta Data Feature History 6

19 19 Translators and converting… SolidWorks File Geometry Topology Display Data Meta Data Feature History Mates

20 20 File Format… SolidWorks File Geometry Topology Display Data Parasolid Kernel

21 21 Pop Quiz! What do you call a group of owls? What do you call a group of foxes? What do you call a group of ferrets? A Parliament A Skulk A busyness

22 22 Importing into SolidWorks… Faulty faceGaps between faces Parasolid Features (Geometry, Topology, Display data) can become corrupted during translation. SolidWorks tries to repair this with Import Diagnostics.

23 23 Demo Preview Keep hitting that thing!

24 24 Power Tools… 1. You can move, rotate, and copy solid and surface bodies, or place them using mates.

25 25 Demo Preview Its just like using mates!

26 26 Power Tools… You can move, rotate, and copy solid and surface bodies, or place them using mates. You can offset, translate, and rotate faces and features directly on solid or surface models.

27 27 Demo Preview

28 28 Power Tools… You can move, rotate, and copy solid and surface bodies, or place them using mates. You can offset, translate, and rotate faces and features directly on solid or surface models. Deletes, Patching or Filling a face from a surface body or deletes one or more faces from a solid body to create surfaces.

29 29 Demo Preview

30 30 Power Tools… You can move, rotate, and copy solid and surface bodies, or place them using mates. You can offset, translate, and rotate faces and features directly on solid or surface models. Deletes, Patching or Filling a face from a surface body or deletes one or more faces from a solid body to create surfaces. Pattern repeats the selected features, faces and bodies.

31 31 Demo Preview

32 32 Pop Quiz! What team did the Red Sox sweep in the 2004 World Series to end an 86-year Curse?

33 33 Power Tools… You can move, rotate, and copy solid and surface bodies, or place them using mates. You can offset, translate, and rotate faces and features directly on solid or surface models. Deletes, Patching or Filling a face from a surface body or deletes one or more faces from a solid body to create surfaces. Pattern repeats the selected features, faces and bodies. Use the split to create multi body parts

34 34 Demo Preview

35 35 Power Tools… You can move, rotate, and copy solid and surface bodies, or place them using mates. You can offset, translate, and rotate faces and features directly on solid or surface models. Deletes, Patching or Filling a face from a surface body or deletes one or more faces from a solid body to create surfaces. Pattern repeats the selected features, faces and bodies. Use the split to create multi body parts Make Solid to Sheet Metal

36 36 Demo Preview

37 37 FeatureWorks… Automatic Feature Recognition: The Software attempts to recognize as many features as possible. Interactive Feature Recognition: You select the feature type and entities. Tip: Recognize fillets and chamfers first. Interactive recognition of any extrusions or revolves is simpler after fillets/chamfers are recognized. Perform Automatic Feature Recognition after you have simplified the model with Interactive Feature Recognition.
