SOLIDWORKS costing

SOLIDWORKS costing is an inbuilt tool inside SOLIDWORKS that helps a manufacturer determine the cost of manufacture of a part, straight from the raw materials to the manufacturing methods. SOLIDWORKS costing gauges the cost of the material and the possible machining method that can be used to model the part.

WHAT’S NEW IN SOLIDWORKS 2019-3D CRD

1. MESH MODELING OPENS UP NEW DESIGN POSSIBILITIES
  • Easily create complex textures by converting 2D appearances into real 3D geometry
  • Use mesh files like they are solids using the new Segment Mesh
  • Automatically create 2D sketches at intersections of geometry and a plane with the Slicing command
Benefits
  • Increased capabilities for mesh geometry streamlining reverse engineering and topology optimization.

How to use Undercut Analysis in SOLIDWORKS

SOLIDWORKS has many useful tools that can help us analyze our 3D model. One of these tools is called Undercut analysis. It is a tool that helps you find any trapped areas in your model that cannot be ejected from the mold which require a side core to create your casting or the solidified product. In-mold design, the core is the half of the product which fills the inner part while the cavity is the other half which has a hollow that has a shape for the remaining part.

Using Print3D for 3D Printing in SOLIDWORKS

You probably used to export your SOLIDWORKS part into STL files after you finished creating a solid 3D model and test it without checking its geometry first for 3D printing. There is a SOLIDWORKS tool that can help you check your part before you print it. It is known as Print3D. You can easily access the Print3D in the file menu which is just below the Print.

Creating planes in SOLIDWORKS

Creating planes in SOLIDWORKS Why do you need to create planes when you can sketch on any face of your SOLIDWORKS part without it? You might not have encountered it yet but sometimes you have to insert a plane using references to create your desired shape. Aside from sketching on a plane, there are other uses that some SOLIDWORKS command need.
