Creating tank gauge charts in SOLIDWORKS

Question asked by Michael Steeves on Oct 6, 2015

SOLIDWORKS 2016 has made enhancements to the intersect feature. This makes it much easier to create the fluid volume inside a tank or other fluid vessel.

 

Use Design Studies to iterate the different volumes and output the gauge chart. This also helps find the fluid height in a tank for a predetermined outage (common in the oil industry).
