SOLIDWORKS Mass Overrides with Simulation

SOLIDWORKS Mass Override

In some situations, the mass of a component may not match the real world value.  This would be caused by either an improper mass density of the material assigned, or the volumetric geometry is not identical to the physical component.  The most common source is…

How to show Material and Mass in a SOLIDWORKS PDM Data Card

SOLIDWORKS PDM Part Data Card

Information about a file can be added and accessed through metadata. In SOLIDWORKS this metadata is referred to as Properties. In SOLIDWORKS PDM, this metadata is contained within Variables. By the use of PDM Attributes, we can map a Variable value to a File Property….
