Deactivate Selection Through Transparency Option in SOLIDWORKS

Having transparent faces helps a lot when working with large assemblies with a lot of inner components. When you click on a transparent face, SOLIDWORKS selects the visible opaque component behind it. Although it is a nice feature that can be helpful in many cases…

Derived Configurations in SOLIDWORKS

SOLIDWORKS Derived Configuration

SOLIDWORKS Configurations are a great way to represent multiple variations of a part/assembly within a single file. Using configurations also helps with managing your files. For example, consider a standard bolt. It has different sizes for the diameter, head, thread length and so on. It…

Redundancies in SOLIDWORKS Motion Analysis

We know that each unconstrained body in space has six degrees of freedom (DOF): three translations and three rotations about X, Y and Z axes. Each mate removes a certain number of DOFs from the system. The table below shows some of the mates in…

Motion Simulation in SOLIDWORKS

From the SOLIDWORKS help: SOLIDWORKS Motion studies are graphical simulations of motion for assembly models. Motion simulation assumes all parts to be rigid during the simulation, meaning that during contacts, no deformations will take place. Where to start? To start a motion study in SOLIDWORKS…
