SolidWorks Tutorial – Filling a Specific Assembly Cavity (one out of many)

Article by Alin Vargatu, CSWE updated March 11, 2014


Last week I showed you how easy it is to fill a cavity at the assembly level using the new tools in SolidWorks. That demonstration generated  two questions:

  1. What do you do if you have multiple cavities in the assembly, but need the volume of only one of them? How do you select which assembly cavity to fill?
  2. What options do you have if the various components of the assembly have linear contact? How do you deal with the dreaded “Zero Thickness Geometry” error?

Fortunately, we have answers to all these questions. Just watch this video:
