Sometimes, the standard of structural member that you request may not supplied in SolidWorks by default. In this case, you can open a new part file and sketch out the weldment profile that you wish to apply. Next, how to integrate this weldment profile into SolidWorks is very important.
First, you need to know where is the weldment profile provided in SolidWorks is saved. Commonly, it is under your local disk C>Program Files>SolidWorks Corp>SolidWorks>Data> Weldment profile , add a file location and point to the location that I mentioned, so that it will apppeard under your task pane as shown in the picture below:
Besides that, file type is very improtant, make sure you select "Lib Feat Part" which means SolidWorks library feature part!

1st of all, have you watch Avatar? OMG! you haven't watch it! Better be fast because you definately do not want to miss the chances to watch this fantastic movie by the great director of Terminator, Alien, Titanic, Mr. James Cameron.
Last year we have Sir Richard Branson as keynote speaker of SolidWorks World 2009, Florida. Sir Richard Branson is the founder and President of Virgin Group. He talked about the 1st commercial trip to space and going to happen very soon.
I guess I need to have a walk at Hollywood walk of frame and snap the start of James Cameron.

We always complain you can survive in Malaysia by designing. We always heard a friend say Malaysia will never have a great designer. Malaysian would not appreciate a design and we believe that Buatan Malaysia products is a not reliable and I rather pay more to buy an imported design.
Is it really 'design' in Malaysia consider tak boleh lah (cannot laa~)? I believe this is just a mindset. A mindset that we should shift+delete and forget about it forever and ever.
so dear designer, this video is dedicated to you and I hope with this video can inspire you to stay to design and one day you stand proud to say: Malaysian design is the best!

3. How to handle the transition between two flanges at the fillet corner? I will use loft surface. To control the behaviour or direction of the lofted face, we need to create the guide curve. Just insert a 3D sketch and use a spline line to join the point of two flanges as shown in the picture below:
I want to make sure the lofted face must tangent to each connected flanges. To achive this, I will add a tangent relation between the spline line and the edge of the flange at each side:

Somehow when you try to thicken the surface body in order to convert it become a solid model with a defined thickness, you may face this kind of situation where due to the geometry of model, some area of the solid model will have excessive material which is unwanted as shown in the figure above.
In this situation, you need not to use sketch and extrude cut in order to remove the unwanted geometry. This will pretty take time to sketch a close contour to fully enclose the unwanted volume and you may not get the nice result as you want!
Try on the Delete Face command first! This is the fastest way to help you repair the geometry of the model. Select the face belong to the unwanted geometry and under the option for Delete Face command, choose " Delete and patch", means, the software will remove the selected face and patch back the model with a more predictable geometry. (If you select option"Delete" only, it will only remove the selected face and you solid model will turned into surface model). Refer to the figure below, this is the outcome of the delete face command! Simple and nice?
Sometimes, Delete Face might not able to solve your problem, it's all depends on the complexity of model geometry just like the situation as shown in the figure below:
In this case, you can try the 2nd alternative which is Replace Face command! Let see how simple it is! First, do a offset surface for the face that you feel is suitable to be used to patch back the unnecessay geometry, make sure the offseted face is large enough to cover the target face to be patched! Or else, you will need to extend it!

The best donation is that we just need to play a simple small role and others will donate on behalf of our small effort. We run for donation, we eat for donation (this is the best 1), we scarify sleep for donation, we doing heavy duty labor job for donation, and so on.... So, do I have an easier way to get donation to rise sustainable design awareness beside using above method?
Yes!~ let Dassault Systèmes (DS) SolidWorks Corp do the donation and all we need to do is download SolidWorks® SustainabilityXpress solution. You download, you use it and you playing an important role to save our earth and the donation, just leave it to SolidWorks Corp, they will do the rest. :) Senang dengan legal download!~
SolidWorks will donate $1 for every download of its SolidWorks® SustainabilityXpress solution, up to $10,000, to Formula Hybrid™, an international competition of university engineering students to develop high-performance fuel-electric hybrid vehicles. SolidWorks SustainabilityXpress is professional-grade software providing advanced functionality that aids engineers in determining a product’s carbon footprint, energy consumption, air and water impact. By downloading SolidWorks SustainabilityXpress, engineers and designers will help educate the next generation about environmentally friendly design while gaining a tool to help them create “green” designs today.

Today, I going to steal some Glamour from What's New in SolidWorks 2010 and I will do a review on "Maker Springs" macro - one of the Top 50 Macro which can be downloaded from 3D ContentCentral. This macro is downloadable via this link click here . I am not sure how many of you have downloaded this macro but after I tried this macro, I realized that this is a very very useful macro. I probably will vote this macro as "The Must have Macro for a Mechanical Engineer".
Thank you, Mr. Washington Santos for contributing such as great macro. I salute you!!
1. Mutli lips groove means that now you can select multiple face at one time to create the lip even though the faces are not merge together. we are talking about saving time, a lot a lot of time!~
2. Jump gap means if you have a gap in between two created lips, then instead of leaving is as a gap, turning on this feature allow it to create a continuos
Ok la, i know you prefer to watch it in action. A video after the jump!~

Good news for those users who always working with sheet metal design! I found that throughout the years, the ability of sheet metal features is keep on increasing in order to compensate the needs from users. This year, the enhancements are focus on how to enable the user create more complex geometry for sheet metal model in an easier and smarter way!
One of the examples is now we can use the existing Closed Corner command with a greater variety of sheet metal parts. When you are applying the closed corner function to add material for an opened gap, SolidWorks help you to manage the transition well.
Another example will be the improved sheet metal functionality to let the user design more complex sheet metal parts. User can now add hems to non linear edges. When you add hem to a sheet metal part edge, you can now edit the hem profile to control the length! Just like how you can do for edge flange!
Let’s go through the video:
Closed Corner & Hem in sheet metal
We have more than that! please keep following SolidWorks M'sia Community~ =)
