Market[ edit ] DS Solidworks Corp. Commercial sales are made through an indirect channel, which includes dealers and partners throughout the world. SolidWorks also partners with third party developers to add functionality in niche market applications like finite element analysis, circuit layout, tolerance checking, etc. The software is SolidCAM 2017 for sale on Parasolid -kernel. Parameters refer to constraints whose values determine the shape or geometry of the model or assembly.
Parameters can be either numeric parameters, such as line lengths or circle diameters, or geometric parameters, such as tangent, parallel, concentric, horizontal or vertical, etc. Numeric parameters can be associated with each other through the use of relations, which allows them to capture design intent. Design intent is how the creator of the part wants it to respond to changes and updates. For example, you would want the hole at the top of a beverage can to stay at the top surface, regardless of the height or size of the can.
SolidWorks allows the user to specify that the hole is a feature on the top surface, and will then honor their design intent no matter what height they later assign to the can. Features refer to the building blocks of the part.
They are the shapes and operations that construct the part. Shape-based features typically begin with a 2D or 3D sketch of shapes such as bosses, holes, slots, etc. This shape is then extruded to add or cut to remove material from the part. Operation-based features are not sketch-based, and include features such as fillets, chamfers, shells, applying draft to the faces of a part, etc.
Building a model in SolidWorks usually starts with a 2D sketch although 3D sketches are available for power users. The sketch consists of geometry such as points, lines, arcs, conics except the hyperbolaand splines. Dimensions are added to the sketch to define the SolidCAM 2017 for sale and location of the geometry.
Relations are used to define attributes such as tangency, parallelism, perpendicularity, and concentricity. The parametric nature of SolidWorks means that the dimensions and relations drive the geometry, not the other way around. The dimensions in the sketch can be controlled independently, or by relationships to other parameters inside or outside the sketch. In an assembly, the analog to sketch SolidCAM 2017 for sale are mates. Just as sketch relations define conditions such as tangency, SolidCAM 2017 for sale, and concentricity with respect to sketch geometry, assembly mates define equivalent relations with respect to the individual parts or components, allowing the easy construction of assemblies.
SolidWorks also includes additional advanced mating features such as gear and cam follower mates, which allow modeled gear assemblies to accurately reproduce the rotational movement of an actual gear train. Finally, drawings can be created either from parts or assemblies.
Views are automatically generated from the solid model, and notes, dimensions and tolerances can then be easily added to SolidCAM 2017 for sale drawing as needed. File format[ edit ] SolidWorks files previous to version use the Microsoft Structured Storage file format. Various third-party tools see COM Structured Storage can be used to extract these sub-files, although the subfiles in many cases use proprietary binary file formats.
