solidworks toolbox and design library tutorial

Please note that this is an advanced tutorial which means I don’t cover basic skills here – like creating a sketch or drawing a line – so if you are a beginner then I suggest you to work on the drone project. That is a solidworks 3d modeling project which I described the designing process from the very beginning to advanced skills.

And the summary of this tutorial:

There are so many standard parts in the industrial factories such as bearings, nuts, washers etc… many of these standard parts are existed in the solidworks toolbox-design library and you don’t need to reinvent the wheel!!

Suppose that you need a bearing like this:

Well this bearing is already considered in the solidworks toolbox and you don’t need to redesign it from scratch so here are the main applications of the solidworks toolbox:

  1. Importing the ready to use standard parts like the above gear
  2. Calculating some standard parts such as bearings, cams and etc…

Before we proceed, we need to load the solidworks toolbox. Navigate to the solidworks add-ins tab and click on the solidworks toolbox. It will take some seconds and solidworks toolbox will be activated.

1.import ready to use standard parts

in this section we practice to bring solidworks design library parts into a new project. Suppose that you need to insert a bearing into your document

we can even edit the part in solidworks if we like

we can try on different parts. Look at this part. it’s a simple pin but even designing a simple pin takes time and you can take advantage of using “design library” and “toolbox” in situation like this:

2- Calculating standard parts

When you activate solidworks toolbox some new tools are added to “solidworks add-ins” tab. These tools are for calculating of some standard parts. You cant insert parts from here this is only calculating to choose the right product.

Suppose that you are designing a gearbox and there is shaft that must work under the following conditions:

  • Rotation speed: 1500 rpm
  • Calculated load: 50000 N
  • Diameter: 70mm
  • Material: steel

You have done your calculations and you are sure that the shaft can withstand the load but you are looking for a proper ball bearing to be installed on the shaft ends. your desired bearing should work more than10 million revolutions in the above circumstances. So here comes the solidworks toolbox and in this solidworks tutorial we use it to calculate and find the propper bearing.
