How to Manage Your SOLIDWORKS Design Using Global Variables & Equations

Change is an important part of the design process, which is why building your design intent into your models is extremely important. SOLIDWORKS Global Variables and Equations allow us to build intelligence into our parts by creating mathematical relationships between features and dimensions. If a design change comes your way, it is much easier to update your model instead of editing every sketch and feature to get your finished product.

In the SOLIDWORKS Global Variables Webinar

TriMech Application Engineer, David Cano-Mejia, will demonstrate how to create and use SOLIDWORKS global variables and equations in your models. David will discuss some advanced techniques such as using if/then statements in your equations as well as using linked equations to share equations among models. Finally, he will touch on creating equations in your custom properties, which is a new feature available in SOLIDWORKS.

In this webinar, David will cover:

  • Creating and using global variables
  • Creating and using equations
  • Linking dimensions together
  • If/then statements in equations
  • Importing/exporting linked equations
