Step by step procedure on Modelling a spring

Springs form the most integral part of any engineering application. They are widely used as dampers and in cars they are used as shock absorbers. Knowing how to model springs then becomes a necessary skill for any designer and engineer. I will run through some ways you can use to model springs inside Solidworks.

Begin by creating a new part.

SolidWorks: Motion study simulation

Solidworks motion study simulation is a robust tool inside Solidworks that allows the designer to simulate motion between parts. This allows the designer animate and see how two parts interact.
For this demonstration I will animate a bevel gear system and show you how this system actually works. We will use the bevel gear sets present within Solidworks Design library.SolidWorks motion simulation

To begin we first have to enable Solidworks motion add-in present inside Solidworks.

Next we create a new assembly Continue reading

Tutorial On Curve Machining Using Solidworks Camworks

Camworks is an instinctive, component based CAM programming that expansions profitability utilizing best-in-class advancements and versatile mechanization instruments to amplify CNC machining effectiveness.


Here the challenge is to machine only the specific faces on the part which is marked in blue in the image. Though it looks simple, to machine if you require particular patter to suit your mould this can be tricky with the Manufacturing perspective having all the necessary tool dimensions like HogNose cutter, radius 5mm, Diameter Continue reading
