Meeting Notes

September 19th Recap

Posted by Fred.SWUG on September 21, 2012 at 9:55 AM

A great pizza selction was selected by Oke from Primavera Pizzeria at 600 William Street in Fredericksburg.

Our sponsors: Rapid Sheet Metal, SolidWorks, CADSharp, and ARTCorp provided some excellent prizes, information, and resources.

During the meeting several amazing tips and tricks were shown along with some rather outstanding models that were used as examples. A few of the favorites were:

  • Demonstrating some benefeits of the Selection Manager over the use of Compound Curves.
  • Advanced uses for a 3D Sketch.
  • Making use of a Derived Sketch to speed up modeling and editing.
  • The use of complex layout sketches to form the basis of complex parts with minimal features.
  • The seven secrets of SolidWoks professionals that will have you modeling parts in half the time of your non-informed peers.

Our November meeting will focus on two user requested topics: large assemblies and methods to increase their speed, and examples of using configurations at the part and assembly level.
