How to get Solidworks for low price

by noodlesman222

I am 13 so I don't have enough money to buy Solidworks but I have used it in classes and love it. If anyone can get a discount or something I would love if you could help me out.

Solidworks Substitute? And CSWP

by CasperJensen

So last year I earned my CSWA-Academic. First, what is the difference between CSWA and CSWA-Academic?
Second, does anyone have any files for me to practice with for the CSWP or the files from the test?
Third, I LOVE solid-works because I can get really exact tools but that's also a problem I want to make toys so is there a way to make toys on solidworks or is there a substitute to solid-works that you use to make toys?

Dratini Model

by models___

Hey everyone! Just finished this Dratini model. I've been modeling organic shaped, Pokemon models to push the boundaries of organic modeling within Solidworks.

Hoping if anybody gets a chance that they could print it and see how things go!

Thanks for checking it out!

Gengar and Magikarp

by models___

I wanted to do some Pokemon that I particularly like myself. Gengar because he is one of the most badass Pokemon of the 1st gen, and Magikarp, solely based on the fact that I can't wait to do Gyrados!

Snorlax Print

by models___

Here is my new Snorlax model, done in Solidworks. I'm still trying to push the boundaries of organic modeling within Soldiworks. Super happy with how it turned out, although it took way longer than I was expecting.

Just wandering if people could print him and let me know how everything goes!

SolidWorks to OBJ


Hey guys,
I am wanting to get my solidworks files to an obj file with full color to be able to 3D print with. Since the solidworks I have does not have the Scanto3D add-in, I cannot get my files to an obj that way. I have tried using other software to get an obj file, but there was no color on the model when I opened it.

Was wondering if anyone has an ideas on how to possibly get it work?

Help Converting *.stl format to *.step

by SnowCrashTD

Hi Everyone,

I've created a simple design of a soldering helping-hand consisting of 3 basic parts and for which I'd like to get CNC fabrication quotes.

The design files can be found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2506940

The problem is my design files were made in .stl format (I mostly do 3D printing), but apparently for CNC I need them in .step format.

I've tried converting the files myself using openCAD but couldn't produce viable files.

From what I understand, SolidWorks can handle such conversions, but I have neither the software license or knowledge of how to go about it.

Any chance a kind-hearted SolidWorks wizard in this group would be willing to lend a me hand and help convert these 3 files to the required *.step format?

Many thanks,

Soldering Helping-Hand
