Manage Your Design Using Global Variables and Equations

https://video.trimech.com/manage-your-solidworks-design-using

Change is an important part of the design process, which is why building your design intent into your models is extremely important. Global variables and equations allow us to build intelligence into our parts by creating mathematical relationships between features and dimensions. If a design change comes your way, it is much easier to update your model instead of editing every sketch and feature to get your finished product.

About This Webinar

TriMech Application Engineer, David Cano-Mejia, demonstrates how to create and use global variables and equations in your SOLIDWORKS models. David discusses some advanced techniques such as using if/then statements in your equations as well as using linked equations to share equations among models. Finally, he touches on creating equations in your custom properties, which is a new feature available in SOLIDWORKS.

In this webinar, David covers:

  • Creating and using global variables
  • Creating and using equations
  • Linking dimensions together
  • If/then statements in equations
  • Importing/exporting linked equations
