Lynda SOLIDWORKS: Advanced Sketching Fix

Topics include:- Sketching pipe in 3D- Routing and auto-routing pipe- Splitting and deleting pipe- Adding weld gaps, slope, and penetration points- Preparing pipe drawings- Sketching and routing tubesSOLIDWORKS: Simulation for Finite Element AnalysisThe SOLIDWORKS Premium package contains more complex piping and routing features, which enable designers to integrate piping and tubing early on, ensuring operability and serviceability and avoiding extra costs. This course teaches how to use the SOLIDWORKS Premium routing tools for piping and tubing applications. Start by learning exactly what routing is and how it is used. Instructor Erin Winick then explores making routes, sketching pipes, auto-routing, and editing piping. She adds coverings and features such as weld gaps and valves, and creates pipe drawings. She also covers designing with flexible tubing, which is measured, assembled, and routed differently than pipes. After completion of this course, users should understand all basic functionality of piping and routing in SOLIDWORKS, including the related parts libraries.Topics include:- Setting up Simulation properties and defined views- Preparing the geometry- Setting up a local coordinate system- Splitting surfaces- Defining the constraint and the loads- Meshing- Running analysis- Contour control- XY plotsSOLIDWORKS: Performance TuningSOLIDWORKS users who contend with hang-ups and slow load times can miss deadlines and lose productivity. In this course, discover how to improve SOLIDWORKS performance and tune your workstation for optimal performance. Instructor David Antanavige teaches a variety of methods for tuning workstation and SOLIDWORKS performance, beginning with basic system updates, and moving on to tweaks and adjustments to SOLIDWORKS itself. Explore how various SOLIDWORKS options affect performance, and learn tips and tricks for avoiding performance problems in the first place. Plus, discover how to squeeze more performance out of SOLIDWORKS using tuning options.Topics include:- How your workstation's hardware functions- Adjusting System Options settings- Modeling best practices- Creating custom configurations- Fixing your assemblies- Using SpeedPak- Increasing modeling performance with Instant2D and Instant3DSOLIDWORKS: Integrated CAM with HSMXpressAutodesk HSMXpress software brings integrated CAM to SOLIDWORKS. In this course, discover how to get started with this 2. 5 axis CAM plugin. Gabriel Corbett walks through how to load models; set up a machine and fixtures; configure tools; and drill, tap, bore, pocket, and mill your material. He also shows how to generate toolpaths, simulate a job, use the utilities in HSM, and more.Topics include:- Loading models and assemblies- Stock setup- Choosing the WCS and running multiple parts at once- Building custom tools- Running a drilling operation- 2D milling operations- Modifying your post processor- Simulating the milling operationsSOLIDWORKS: Advanced SimulationBefore parts can be manufactured, SOLIDWORKS designers need to perform advanced stress analysis using simulations. This process is called finite element analysis or FEA. Join instructor Tony Abbey in this course, as he teaches this vital skill using the rich simulation features in SOLIDWORKS Premium 2018. Learn how to break up and mesh models, set loads and boundary conditions, and fix and re-mesh geometry. Explore the 3-2-1 and plane strain methods for measuring stress and displacement. After optimizing each design, Tony runs an analysis and compares the before and after results so you can see how the stress is reduced.Topics include:- Breaking up the model- Meshing and re-meshing the model- Simplifying the geometry- Using the 3-2-1 and plane strain methods- Running analyses and comparing resultsLearning SOLIDWORKS ComposerGet started with SOLIDWORKS Composer, and discover how to leverage this software to generate technical documentation, publications, and animations. Develop fundamental SOLIDWORKS Composer skills by learning a variety of essential topics. Learn about generating images and animations of your products for technical documentation and publications, as well as technical marketing purposes. Explore how to set up cameras and views, add lines and textures, create simple animations, and output video and images.Topics include:- Composer terminology- Creating your first view and image output- Changing actor and background properties- Using the transform tools- Inserting explode lines- Adding textures- Lighting- Working with a Bill of Materials (BOM)SOLIDWORKS: Sheet Metal DesignCAD software like SOLIDWORKS makes sheet metal design quick and cost effective. This course gets you up to speed with the sheet metal tools in SOLIDWORKS, and takes you on a trip to the factory floor to see the final manufactured results. Instructor Gabriel Corbett shows what goes on behind the scenes and provides tips on designing parts for the real world.First, review the sheet metal tools in SOLIDWORKS and the properties that make sheet metal unique: bend radius, K-factor, bend deduction, gauge thickness, and more. Then learn how to create basic parts, with base features, flanges, and bends that add strength and connections. Find out how to flatten parts and add holes, cuts, and corners that are manufacturing ready, and use the Convert to Sheet Metal command to convert imported geometry into native sheet metal parts. Gabriel also shows you how to create assemblies from multiple parts, use the Pattern and Mirrors tools to effortlessly duplicate existing work, and then document your designs with detailed sheet metal drawings. Watch the bonus videos to learn about the different machinery and processes that occur during manufacturing.Topics include:- Sheet metal tools in SOLIDWORKS- Sheet metal manufacturing: Laser cutting, CNC machining, welding, and more- Creating base features- Creating flanges and tabs- Making cuts and corners- Using the Convert to Sheet Metal command- Building multi-body parts- Creating forming tools- Forming across a bend- Building an assembly- Creating parts in an assembly- Creating sheet metal drawingsSOLIDWORKS: SketchingSketching is the foundation for every 3D model in SOLIDWORKS. By bolstering your understanding of the suite of settings that deal with sketching in SOLIDWORKS, you can improve your designs and enhance your overall productivity. In this course, learn about the essential tools and functions for sketching in this powerful 3D CAD software. Instructor David Antanavige starts by reviewing basic sketch entities such as circles and splines. He also dives into other key topics such as sketch tools, sketch settings, spline tools, dimensions, and 3D sketching.Topics include:- Sketch entities- Working with sketch tools- Sketch settings- Using spline tools- Dimensioning- 3D sketching- Editing in 3DSOLIDWORKS: Making MoviesSOLIDWORKS boasts movie-making functionality that engineers and product designers can use to tell a story about their designs. These animations can help you sell others on your design ideas, as well as clearly communicate how a product should be built and operated. In this course, Elise Moss steps through how to make a movie of your own in SOLIDWORKS. Elise covers how to create motion studies, work with cameras, create your script, control the appearance of your objects, and work with camera views and movement. To wrap up the course, she goes over rules and best practices that can help you determine the overall message of your movie, craft a great script, set up your model, and more.Topics include:- Working with the motion study interface- Rotating, exploding, and collapsing a model- Writing a great script- How to make things move- Creating keypoints for camera views- Writing a script to control appearance- Writing a script that combines appearances, camera views, and movement- Rules for a great scriptSOLIDWORKS: Shell and Beam Modeling in FEAMuch of CAD design uses 3D elements for finite element analysis (FEA) simulation. However, sometimes thin-walled or frame-like structures dominate. In these cases, shell (2D) and beam (1D) elements can represent designs more effectively. Across all industries, as much as 50% of the design of major engineering projects fall into these categories.In this course, instructor Tony Abbey explains how to work with shell and beam models in SOLIDWORKS. Learn when to use shell, beam, and specialized truss elements; understand the fundamentals of modeling with them; and find out how to mesh, postprocess, and model components with these tools. Tony shows how to set up and run these FEA simulations to test the integrity of your designs and view results such as stress, force, and displacement.Topics include:- Modeling beams and trusses- Using weldments- Modeling shells- Using surfaces- Using solid bodies- Using sheet-metal bodies- Setting up and running FEA simulations
