Use Modify Configurations options to create and manage configurations in user-defined tables. Configure sketch and feature dimensions with Configure Dimension. Use Configure Feature to configure suppression of features. Configure the part material with Configure Materials. And, use Configure Component to configure the component suppression, fixed state, and configuration.
Use design tables to quickly create many configurations that change the suppression states of components, mates, and assembly features. Also, you can use design tables to configure the dimensions of mates and assembly features. Understand the options when creating a design table. Use data validation to restrict values entered in the design table. Set configuration properties to control new mates and components. Change the configuration of components in the assembly design table.
Use design tables to quickly create many configurations that change the values of dimensions and the suppression states of features. Set up a model to effectively use design tables. Understand the options when creating a design table. Add columns to a design table for additional dimensions and features to control. Add rows to a design table for additional configurations to create.
Use the ConfigurationManager to add configurations to an assembly and show two versions of its components. Also, explore the advanced options of configuration properties. Use the ConfigurationManager to add configurations to an assembly. Use the advanced options of the configuration properties to control new components and mates. Create two versions of the assembly to represent different available components.
Use the ConfigurationManager to add configurations and modify the part by controlling the suppression state of features and by configuring dimensions. Use the ConfigurationManager to add configurations to a part. Suppress features to represent a different version of the model. Configure dimensions to create different size versions of the part.
Use drawing view commands that are specific to working with assembly models including broken out section views, alternate position views, and exploded views. Use drawing view properties to represent assembly configurations. Create a broken-out section view to show internal components of the assembly. Create an alternate position view using an existing or a new configuration. Create an exploded assembly drawing view.
Modify configurations in the part for the Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional sample exam. Change the suppression state of features and adjust dimensions in specific configurations. Obtain the mass properties of the part.
Identify, add, and modify configurations in the part for the Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional sample exam. Modify configurations as indicated in the sample example. Obtain the mass properties of the part.
Define mated entities and mate types for components that you use frequently. When you add the component to the assembly, some mates can automatically be added for you. Define the mate entities and mate types for a frequently used component. Add a component with mate references to an assembly. Select the configuration of a component that you drag into an assembly.
Create display states to control the visibility and display style of components. Display states can be linked to configurations of an assembly. Display states can control hide/show state, display mode, appearance, and transparency of components. Add display states to an assembly. Modify visual properties of components with display states. Explore component selection techniques. Use the display pane. Open an assembly to a specific configuration and display state. Link display states to configurations.
Create exploded views in multibody parts using some of the same tools that you use to create an exploded view in an assembly. Toggle between exploded and collapsed states. Edit the explode steps. Create more than one exploded view per configuration.
Create an intersect feature to represent the fluid inside a bottle. Then, use the mass properties tool to determine the volume of the feature you created. Create a configuration to represent the liquid in the bottle. Create a reference plane to represent the fill level of the bottle. Use an intersect feature to model the liquid inside a bottle. Use mass properties to determine the volume of a solid body.
This module covers advanced DimXpert techniques. It covers how to leverage multiple configurations to organize Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI). Understand Intersection Geometry. Use the Auto Dimension Scheme to create polar dimensions. Create multiple configurations for organized PMI. Use the Copy Scheme tool to transfer PMI from one configuration to another. Import DimXpert Annotations into a 2D drawing.
Learn how to optimize designs to reduce model weight by varying model dimensions. Apply parameters and constraints to optimize your design to meet goals. Learn how design studies are used with Simulation.
