This guide will show you how to create a Lip/Groove feature in SOLIDWORKS for plastic parts. It can be created in a multi-body part or in an assembly by editing one of its components. For this example, we will create the lip/groove feature in an assembly file. To access the Lip/Groove feature go to Insert Fastening Feature > Lip/Groove. 

 

 

eDrawings Nov 04, 2021

eDrawings has been the #1 CAD viewer software since SOLIDWORKS introduced it in 2000.  In addition to adding more functionality to the SOLIDWORKS eDrawings Viewers (previously eDrawings Standard) eDrawings has had continued support on just about every OS platform available via phone, tablet, or computer. 

In this article, get a sneak peek at what’s new for SOLIDWORKS Simulation, Flow Simulation, and Plastics. To check out everything new in SOLIDWORKS 2022 register to attend our 3D CAD conference either virtually or at a location near you. Event details are listed here.

SOLIDWORKS PDM Nov 01, 2021

Web2 is a useful tool to access SOLIDWORKS PDM over the internet. Most issues with Web2 can be traced to improper setup on the server. This guide will delve into the proper way to set up Web2, install the software, set up user accounts, and cover application pool identity and testing.

There is a wide range of keyboard shortcuts and quick clicks in SOLIDWORKS that many seasoned users are familiar with. They make modeling faster than if you didn’t know these hotkeys. But did you know that there are also Zoom shortcuts? With video conferencing becoming ever more widely used, Zoom has become a staple means of communication.

Scanto3D, an add-in available in both SOLIDWORKS Professional and SOLIDWORKS Premium, is a great tool to use if you want to scan an existing part to obtain the mesh for better 3D model creation. Used in a variety of industries such as consumer products, machine design, and medical design, Scanto3D is capable of creating organically shaped objects for reference and representation quickly and easily. 

 

 

SOLIDWORKS PDM Oct 27, 2021

When working with SOLIDWORKS Network License(s) or “Floating” SOLIDWORKS license(s), there are times when just installing and activating it isn’t enough for your company. There are times, when a company gets big enough, that licenses need to be managed by which group is allowed to use certain products or control which products are returned faster when sitting idle. This is where the need for an Option File for the SolidNetwork License Manager Server is a great solution.

The SOLIDWORKS PDM error message, "The program and the file vault are of incompatible versions" is commonly run into when performing a major SOLIDWORKS PDM version upgrade. It occurs if the database has not been upgraded or if the wrong PDM client version has been installed.  

 

PostProcess Oct 22, 2021

Additive manufacturing has completely transformed the way businesses test, prototype, and produce products; from extra durable auto and aerospace applications to delicate medical models. But regardless of the industry you’re in, or the material technology you use, post-printing inefficiencies can still prohibit full scalability. The intelligent resin and support removal technologies available with PostProcess Technologies’ DEMI systems can help streamline your additive workflow.
