In previous post, we discussed how easy is it to use SOLIDWORKS by demoing creating our first cube. However, SOLIDWORKS also provide much more in-term of functions that our earlier cube might not be the best way to create a cube. Let us explore another way of creating the same 100 millimeter sided cube in a way a more experienced user might use following equations.
A major advantage of this approach is its ease of adjustment in a way that keeps our design intention of creating a cube intact. For example, if we decide to adjust the side of the cube from 100 millimeters to 200 millimeters, all we will have to do is to adjust the variable’s value and all three dimensions of the cube will be adjusted as well saving us a lot of time in the iterative design process.
Do you often incorporate equations in your modeling process? How do you usually use them? We explore all those inside tips and more in our SOLIDWORKS programs. You can check our advanced professional SOLIDWORKS course for more topics like this.
