Hi all, my colleague Amen Allah Jlili and I are exhibiting at SolidWorks World 2018 this year. As you might know, each year at SWW they hold a "model mania" contest where the fastest SolidWorks modelers can receive a prize. We wanted to do an equivalent "macro mania" and wanted your feedback on our rules and what you think would be reasonable… (Show more)

Is there any tutorial for setting up a Joule heating simulation or does anybody have any tips?  We have a need to run a study using it but I am not sure what inputs are required to start such a study.  We have Flow and the Electronics Cooling module.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks -Reid

As an example, I wanted to color the outer cylinder grey, the middle cylinder yellow and the inner cylinder pale grey. As can be seen, from the top it looks like my coloring… (Show more)

Is there any way to force SW… (Show more)

Our CEO does really want to substitute our PDM with SAP !! This is no chocke! We are working now with the PDM from Solidworks fairly well. Does anyone know a company with a datamanagement with only SAP ?   I think this a ridiculous question, but our CEO has it in mind and we have to proove the opposite!   Thanks for any comments!
