I have very little SolidWorks experience, and I need to model bread (including the many open and closed pores which vary by layer). Does anyone have any suggestions at all for how to go about doing this? Absolutely any advice would be appreciated.
Can you build on why you need to do such a thing in SW? It's certainly not the tool for the Job, but you might be able to get around it.
I have an ultimate goal to 3D print bread, and from what I understand SolidWorks is currently the most suitable software that can do the job. Once 3D printed, it will be mechanically tested. Ideally I just need to have any software that allows me to model bread and control the open and closed pores. I am open to any suggestions at all!
Mmm... SolidWorks is a mechanical design software, Bread would be more of an Organic Membrane structure. There are other tools that you would be able to 3D print from, Do you access to anything like 3DsMax, Modo, Maya...?
I can get student access to 3DsMax - do you suggest that I take my question to a forum for that software? Thank you so much for suggesting this!
Yeah, you could probably even find someone that has done something similar or find samples online.

Not sure I understand the question entirely. I would make a series of different sized cutouts using cut extrude in a corner area to simulate the air pockets, then use the feature pattern to cover the entire area. The more options you add the more it will look less like a pattern.
Wouldn't be easier to bake the bread out of actual dough then mechanically test it? Not sure any software can accurately model the random inside structure of a loaf of bread.
