I am trying to model liquid tanks in SolidWorks, those models will be used to conduct FEA analysis (thermal and strength). Assuming I am to construct the first (outer) layer in the tank, is there feature or an easy way in SolidWorks to model the other layers without having to model each layer separately?
* each layer is adjacent to the next (i.e. they squished together so from outside it would look like one layer)
You could design the outer layer as one assembly, then Pack & Go that assembly, then edit the Pack & Go file, change the diameter dimension and insert those two assemblies in a new assembly file, if you have more than two then just repeat the steps.
