2  I hope you like who you’re sitting next to… © CAPINC Team 1:Team 2:

3  Some of these techniques are NOT good modeling practices, and NOT recommended for everyday use…  …but sometimes, you need to get things DONE. © CAPINC

4 You have a part file with a weird shape and an enclosed volume. You want a body to represent the EMPTY SPACE inside your part. How do you do it? © CAPINC Hint #1: Multi-bodies Hint #2: Combine Feature

5 Now you have an ASSEMBLY with a weird shape and an enclosed volume. You want a part to represent the EMPTY SPACE inside. How do you do it? © CAPINC Hint #1: Insert…Mold…

6 You’ve got 100 different part files which suddenly need a NEW, CUSTOM, file property. How do you do it? © CAPINC Hint #1: Assembly Hint #2: Custom Property Tab

7 Your boss really, REALLY wants to see this spring flex in your assembly. How do you do it? © CAPINC Hint #1: Mates can flex Hint #2: Lots of little parts

8 You need to make a measurement inside an assembly. But, your co-worker ed you JUST the assembly (.sldasm), none of the parts! How do you do it? © CAPINC Hint #1: Don’t use SW

9 You’ve got 3 minutes to make a complex sub-assembly 25% bigger. It only has to look right. How do you do it? © CAPINC Hint #1: Not an assembly anymore…

10 You’ve got a fish-mouth joint. Your shop floor wants to print out a 2D “template” to wrap around the tube to mark it before they cut. How do you do it? © CAPINC Hint #1: Sheet metal

11 You need to make a section view, but it’s not just a straight line. “Aligned Section View” can only use lines, not arcs. How do you do it? © CAPINC

12 You need to have a single drawing annotation that intelligently links to: -a balloon, -a datum flag, -a dimension, and -a GTOL How do you do it? © CAPINC Hint #1: You can’t spell annotation without “note”

13 © CAPINC Your part starts as a helix, but then bends to follow a path. But a helix only goes straight. How do you do it?

14 You need to an X MB part file to someone. Your size limit is X/2 MB. Your also blocks.zip files. How do you do it? © CAPINC Hint #1: What’s taking up space, the feature inputs, or the feature outputs?

15  1. To fill a part volume…  2. To fill an assembly volume…  3. To assign properties to 100 parts at once…  4. To make a springy spring…  5. To measure just an assembly file…  6. To make an assembly just a little bigger…  7. To make a printout of a fish mouth…  8. To make a stair step section view…  9. To make a monster annotation…  10. To make a helix follow a path…  11. To compress your file quickly… © CAPINC

16  Files for “Fill er up” 1 and 2, and “Just a Little Bigger” came from grabcad.com, a fun, free download site for SW models everyone should use.grabcad.com  Thanks to Mike LaFleche and Doug Russell for their help during the presentation!  Any questions, contact me at or through © CAPINC
