Using the Wacom Cintiq with SolidWorks

This is a quick demonstration showing a practical use of a combination of industrial design tools (the new Wacom Cintiq tablet, Photoshop, Illustrator) along side SolidWorks. This video shows how to import media created with these ID tools into SolidWorks and create a solid model ready to be manufactured.

SolidWorks 2011: Piping Improvements

Routing Library Manager: The Routing Library Manager is a new interface that can be run without launching the SolidWorks® application. It provides access to several existing and new functions. Route Along Existing Geometry: You can create a route at a defined distance from a surface, using a pipe segment or a planar surface or face as a reference. The distance is calculated from the outer surface of the pipe, unless the centerline is specified. Weld Gaps: You can add weld gaps to routes between pipes and fittings, using global or joint-specific offset values. Autosize: When you place a part, it now resizes automatically to match the target equipment or fitting. Moving and Rotating a Fitting: You can use the triad control to rotate or move parts inserted into a route. P&ID Import: You can insert inline components into a pipe route after creating it from imported P&ID data, such as from a Solution Partner. SolidWorks identifies required components such as tees and reduc…
