Click to download a SolidWorks 2004 assembly Martian Head in a Jar (2004)
Dedicated to NASA and those involved in the Mars exploration,
program. This is yet another example of how SolidWorks can
create unusual shapes using the surfacing tools included in
software. Pretty creepy looking eh?

Click to download a SolidWorks 2004 assembly Reference Point (2004)
For those wishing there was an easier way to make an object
follow a sketched path, here is the answer. A Reference Point
follows a spline in these examples. Distances are controlled
by a percentage or dimension. Hit "Rebuild" to animate them.

Click to download a SolidWorks 2003 assembly Macro Feature (2003)
Imagine inserting macros into your Feature Manager that will
execute commands every time you rebuild. That's the power of
Macro Features. Here it's used to actually "mate" a Spot Light
to a part in an assembly, making it FULLY ASSOCIATIVE!

Click to download a SolidWorks 2001Plus assembly Motion Limiters (2001Plus)
This interesting technique demonstrates how an empty part,
inserted into an assembly, can limit motion. A distance mate
controls allowable space in which a part is free to travel. Many
thanks to Stefan Berlitz and Stefan Giehl for sharing the idea!

Click to download a SolidWorks 2001Plus assembly Automotive Science and Engineering (2001Plus)
Can you model an entire automobile in SolidWorks? Well, I
know you can model a scale replica. This is the Mach Five
car from the Speed Racer® cartoon series. Use it to show
those other CAD vendors how capable SolidWorks really is.
