Working With Imported Models in SolidWorks

Posted by Jess Levasseur on Tue, Feb 01, 2011 @ 14:02 PM

SolidWorks World was great this year. I did a presentation on Monday about working with Imported models in SolidWorks. Despite the presentation being late in the afternoon, I still counted about 40 - 50 people attending! So thanks for all of you who were in my session; I thought it went really well (if you were there, leave me some feedback!)

 In case you missed it or want to get your hands on the slides and files you can download them here (The zip file is embedded on the first page of the powerpoint, because we can't post zips for download.) The presentation was about working with different import/export format types for working between CAD software and SolidWorks, and how to work with the imported data once it's been imported into SolidWorks. There were a ton of great questions and it was a really interactive session overall.

If you're interested in working with imported models at all, this is a great starting point. It not only goes over the direct editing features like the Delete Face and Move Face commands, but explains the diferences between translation methods and each translator’s strengths and weaknesses.
