    Hi Everyone,

    Here is the latest video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1J9Qz129Js

    It covers using the SolidWorks design optimization study. I hope a lot of people get something out of this one. I know I have used this tool a lot in the past. It's pretty simple and is a fast way to lose some weight, especially unsprung mass.

    To everyone asking about making tubular exhausts -
    I'll put this on the list of future topics. Honestly though, I don't have a magic way of doing it. Lots of tweaking 3D-sketches. Its definitely a time consuming job.

    Also, SolidWorks will soon be determining how long they want to continue making these videos. If you want to see more of them, please leave a comment, send me an email, rate it on youtube, etc. The more positive responses we get, the easier it will be to convince SolidWorks to let us keep making them. We like doing it, and also hope everyone is learning from them.

    As always, send me an email at sfaulkner@solidworks.com

    Hi All,

    Here is the next video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lC_PxRXBpiY

    Its on modeling techniques for a suspension spring. The previous videos were getting pretty heavy on analysis and also complicated. Quite a few people requested something a little simpler, that they might be able to use with new members. Hope you like it.

    I know most teams are starting to do a lot more building and less modeling at this point in the year. But hopefully these are still helping you out and we'll have a good library by developed.

    Email me at sfaulkner@solidworks.com with any comments.

    Sorry, the video link wasn't working before, but it should be working now.

    I'm glad you guys enjoy them! Here is the next one. It covers using PhotoView360 to do renderings and also how to add decals using PhotoWorks.

    Creating PhotoView 360 Renders in SolidWorks

    +1 on Photoview 360 producing nice renders. Last year I rendered all of our cars going back to 2002 with it. I was able to render a high quality 1920x1200 version of the image below in few minutes. Really easy to use.

    Here is the next video. It is on using SolidWorks Motion. This video just scratches the surface so hopefully someone could recommend a follow up video topic.

    Thanks it took me some time to figure out how to get the correct paint scheme onto the model. And even longer for a work around to get decals onto the model that photoview would render.
