CAD engineer at work - Certified Solidworks Professional

Certified Solidworks Professionals

 

We know, as certified solidworks professionals with 10+ years experience, the value in hiring a well versed user. In particular, because the software is so complex. Incidently, solidworks has the capability to help us create anything. For example, small mechanical components, As well as, large, intricate and accurate models. 

 

For this reason, 3D CAD design plays a paramount role in the modern day design, manufacture and construction. Our solidworks expertese can help take your initial concepts to the next level.

 

So what is solidworks? Dassault systems created the software. it can simulate a product or construction. In addition, It allows a designer to create, modify and form any level of detail. Furthermore, the model can be analysed, copied, rendered or prototyped. You need a CAD file for every step of the product development process. Whether wanting to showcase your design, or you are leaning towards mass production.

Solid Modelling

Solid modelling is a technique used to illustrate solid objects. Many objects can be combined to make more complex shapes. 

Solid vs surface models. Surface models are used for free form organic shapes. In this case, the design is built one surface at a time. Whereas, solid modelling is used for built up geometric shapes. In short, when curvy geometry is not required, solid modelling is faster.

Surface modelling is used to create free-form, organic shapes. Generally, it’s used for visual purposes over manufacturing.

 

However, surface models can be converted to solid, manufacture ready files. Surfaces give a greater forming freedom against solid. Thus, its crucial at times. incidentlly, It’s important to know when surface or solid modelling is the way to go. Here, an experienced CAD designer will know the difference.

Assembly modelling is a method, used to create large scale, working models, out of multiple parts. They represent parts in a product or model. Relationships can be simulated between parts.

 

For example, real life behavior given to a wheel spinning on a axle. Collision detection can be simulated. Furthermore, force loading to study strength. Single components can be isolated in assembly view to inspect details in complex mechanical systems. 

CAD construction drawing and model.
Construction Drawings

 

In this case, the purpose of construction drawings is to represent whats being built using CNC machines. They are drawn to using real dimensions, to show flat perspective views. consequently, this removes any confusion in the design process. Its also the simplest, smallest size document that can be viewed without special software. Therefore, making it very useful when discussing the design, with manufacturers.

Collision Detection

 

Collision detection is a computer process that identifies the moment 2 objects collide. This is very useful when exploring the relation of two (or more) parts in a moving array. For example, you could view how a set of gears on a pedal bike model move. Also,  where a hinges max rotation is.  Mathematical relations can be set. For instance, a shaft connected to a motor, having the freedom to spin as in real life. This simulation can be critical to understand complex systems.

Microworkshops can help you avoid manufacturing defects, before going through the injection mold process. We can tell you: the weight, suggest the best plastic, lead time and the level of warping. All before manufacture. In addition, we will also design the mold drawing. Complete with, the correct draft angles and discreetly placed split lines. Retooling for steel molds can be highly expensive so accurate simulations and pre-tooling insights can save time and money.
