Welcome to the official Tumblr page of Counseling & Psychological Services at San Diego State University. Set alarms for when you have to leave for school or when it is time to change subjects in study session.
By looking at your schedule each morning you see what you have planned for yourself and you can prepare yourself for a busy fast paced day, or a slow easy day.
If you have a bunch of assignment, all due around the same time, then get the easier stuff out of the way. Having to be accurate and precise within a limited amount of time is an everyday reality for designers and engineers.

How often do you find yourself manually entering in peripheral information, such as cable references, symbol marks, wire numbers, or even manufacturer part information?
Adding information on manufacturer parts can be a painstaking task because there can potentially be a lot of data associated to each part, such as part number, description, vendor, voltage, current, frequency, and even detailed circuit or pin out information. SOLIDWORKS Electrical provides an online portal on which you can search and download an exorbitant amount of information.
The Electrical Content Portal is a simple, user-in-mind website that allows you to gather project information more efficiently.
With over 500 manufacturers who have their parts listed within the site, the Electrical Content Portal allows you to quickly find the parts you are looking for, download them, and add them directly into your SOLIDWORKS Electrical database. Still can’t find what you are looking for?
Without a doubt, the Electrical Content Portal is a valuable piece of the puzzle that helps you save time, reduce errors, and simplify your operations so that you and your team can become even more productive.

The post MBD Implementation DOs and 10 DONT’s – Don’t Stop at Graphical PMI (Part 2) appeared first on The SOLIDWORKS Blog. In this first image you can see Tolerance-Based Machining by CAMWorks fully integrated into SOLIDWORKS MBD 2016.
There are more areas to automate by reusing semantic 3D PMI such as Tolerance Analysis, Computer Aided Process Planning (CAPP), and Work Instructions.
After a two-year pilot program from 2013 to 2015, Rolls-Royce concluded: PMI creation in the correct way is crucial for enabling true Model-Based Enterprise. In summary, it may be acceptable to start MBD projects with graphical 3D PMI at the beginning of an MBD implementation, enough for human interpretation, just like 2D drawings.
Next we will discuss the importance of templates and how to customize and standardize them. Learn how you can increase your ability to pass the Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate exam by taking advantage of preparation materials available on MySolidWorks.

Most people run in Lycra… Some run in fancy dress… Dean Ovel runs in a human hamster wheel, sealed inside a cage, in the middle of a busy high street in Southend. The post Dean Ovel: SOLIDWORKS and 24 Hours in a Human Hamster Wheel appeared first on The SOLIDWORKS Blog. Watching Ovel take himself for a spin will be thousands of shoppers and Saturday night revellers. Designing in SOLIDWORKS meant that Ovel could test all the load-bearing elements and moving parts before he got anywhere near the build stage. Consumer product developers often face challenges of moving designs from concept to detail design to manufacturing due to the disparate tools.
The post SOLIDWORKS is Your Bridge Over the Consumer Product Design Gap appeared first on The SOLIDWORKS Blog. Download this white paper and you will learn how SOLIDWORKS software provides a complete modeling and social environment for taking designs from concept to manufacturing. To create the best product, it is important to be able to rapidly develop multiple concept designs and gain feedback from your design stakeholders in a short amount of time.


The detail design process can start with a concept model directly from SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer into SOLIDWORKS Premium.
The SOLIDWORKS solution provides all necessary tools to create a precise part definition with the same user interface and same geometrical file format used for conceptual design. The post MBD Implementation 10 DOs and DON’Ts – Don’t Stop at Graphical PMI (Part 1) appeared first on The SOLIDWORKS Blog. Graphical PMI: this type of 3D annotations is readable to human eyes, but NOT consumable by machines or software. Semantic PMI: simply put, this kind of PMI is not only human-readable, but also machine-readable.
The post Get Connected at the Aerospace Electrical Systems Expo appeared first on The SOLIDWORKS Blog. During the event, SOLIDWORKS and Dassault Systemes experts will be onsite to discuss how aerospace and defense organizations have used our design software to bring their products from concept to launch – quite literally in this case. SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D enables you to place electrical components and use advanced SOLIDWORKS routing technology to automatically interconnect electrical design elements within the 3D model.
In addition to thought-provoking technical discussions, you can experience live demos showing everything from Printed-Circuit Board (PCB) design to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and enjoy popcorn while you learn. The post How SOLIDWORKS is Assisting Van Raam’s Bike Builds appeared first on The SOLIDWORKS Blog.
Formerly relying on paper and pen to design its creations, the team at Van Raam now see SOLIDWORKS as a crucial part of the design process. Having all the parts and materials loaded onto the platform means that customer and supplier interaction is now at the forefront of the building process. The new SOLIDWORKS Education Edition, Academic Year 2016-2017 gives educators and students an innovation platform of software tools to make great designs happen. The post SOLIDWORKS Education Edition Academic Year 2016-2017 Innovation Platform For Educators & Students appeared first on The SOLIDWORKS Blog. Getting things done that are due sooner than other assignments is a better idea, because than you are actively reducing stress.
Not only is it out of sight, out of mind, but it boost the confidence and makes you more determined to finish the harder assignments.
But what if you had methods to quickly and easily validate your designs without having to compromise on anything, resulting in a manufactured product that was “just right”? Elite hi-fi manufacturers Bowers and Wilkins needed a simple way to add product imagery and illustrations to its user guides. From the control room of Abbey Road Studios to the homes of the most discerning audiophiles, its equipment is the trusted choice of music connoisseurs.
Its guides are produced 80 percent faster than before, workflows are more streamlined and the business is working more efficiently and economically.

Personally, there have been times where I have spent hours – if not days – entering in all of the necessary information into my project. SOLIDWORKS Electrical is providing a better way – a faster way – a smarter way to accomplish this time-consuming task.
And when I say exorbitant, I mean over 13 million parts, symbols and footprints for you to choose from.
The Electrical Content Portal also provides a way for users – such as yourselves – to collaborate and share what YOU have created and allow other user to download symbol designs, 2D footprints, or those older manually entered parts. Although graphical PMI is human-readable, it comes with many gaps: lack of associativity to models and no automatic update upon design changes. The truly magnificent symphony is orchestrated in manufacturing, inspection, process planning, tolerance analysis and many more by machine-readable 3D PMI.
It reads semantic 3D tolerances and surface finishes defined in SOLIDWORKS MBD to automate NC programming including strategies, tools, speeds, and feeds.
However, the real power of MBD is to enable downstream automation by reusing machine-readable 3D PMI. The promotion included open access to preparation materials and quizzes associated with preparing for the CSWA exam.  Typically the CSWA exam has a pass rate of around 65%, but thanks to last year’s special offer providing access to the preparation materials on MySolidWorks last year the exam pass rate increased to nearly 85%.
He regularly runs ultra-marathons in excess of 100 miles, and in 2014 he completed ten marathons in eight days.
SOLIDWORKS solutions bridge the gap between industrial design and engineering by providing powerful conceptual sketching tools, robust and easy-to-use surfacing capabilities, easy transition from concept to detail design, and the industry’s top mechanical engineering environment— all rolled into one software vendor solution. SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer adds new and unique conceptual design capabilities to the SOLIDWORKS portfolio, specifically for industrial designers.
For manufacturing and ongoing part maintenance, you can drive design changes by simply entering values in a table. Using SOLIDWORKS can also help you avoid costly mistakes by ensuring that changes made anywhere in the process automatically update all product documentation, including parts, assemblies, and drawings.
Throughout the consumer design workflow, SOLIDWORKS provides rendering solutions to ensure you can create the product visualization at any given time. Let’s examine the true meanings of 3D PMI by looking into two key concepts: Graphical PMI and Semantic PMI, or some may call them human-readable PMI for presentation and Machine-readable PMI for representation. It represents the true meaning of design intention beyond presentation, so can be reused by manufacturing automation, such as Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs). There are more aspects of machine-readable PMI, such as syntax, structure, and interpretation algorithm to be discussed in the future.
Chances are the experts attending this year’s Aerospace Electrical Systems Expo in Pasadena, CA, from May 24-26 will be talking about what’s next for flight and the final frontier.
Stop by booth 4019 to meet with our technical team to learn more about industry-specific solutions and see how electrical and mechanical design can work in concert with SOLIDWORKS Electrical. During exhibition hours, we’re also raffling off noise-reducing studio headphones that are perfect in the air or in your office.
This presentation will address challenges stemming from the combination of reduced product development lead time and more complex design requirements.


It’s meant that Van Raam can be way more reactive to its customers – moving faster and slashing production costs.
Van Raam had found that the average person’s weight and size is increasing and its products had to be ready. The sheer range of different vehicles reflects the varying mobility levels of their customers. Having the regular parts locked in on the database has made the design phase far more streamlined too.
They plan to use SOLIDWORKS to feed straight into the build process, using factory robots to carry out much of the manufacturing.

When you schedule times to get your work done, you are more likely to complete your work in a timely fashion. SolidWorks products are easy to learn and use, and work together to help you design products better, faster, and more cost-effectively.
Product imagery can go a long way to creating user guides that actually improve customer experience. Within a matter of clicks you can choose the perfect angle, create exploded views of your product or work up photorealistic images that bring an end to waiting around for real-world prototypes.
It’s now easier than ever before for Bowers and Wilkins to create user guides that look as good as its products sound. Those who design plastic parts must answer these questions three, or they might not like the part they see. Then CMM sample points or 3D scanned first article point of cloud can be compared with the nominal CAD model. For his next challenge, the 39-year-old design engineer is attempting to raise a small fortune for Southend Hospital Charity’s Dimentia Appeal. There will be live music and entertainment as well as spin bikes for those who want to ‘cycle-a-mile’ alongside Ovel. It has to survive some 25,000 revolutions and bear the weight of an increasingly leaden-legged runner galloping away inside for 24 hours.
While the miniature Lego prototypes brought some added fun to proceedings, it was the detailed 3D drawings that SOLIDWORKS generated that allowed Ovel to share his idea and obtain permission for his event. To read more about Dean’s story and how the challenge came about, check out the Cadtek post here.
SOLIDWORKS has simplified detail designing with easy-to-use tools that provide user guidance and assistance when needed. This intelligent information reuse from design all the way down to production and sustainment is the number-one benefit of MBD and a cornerstone of 21st century smart manufacturing.The images below from Rolls-Royce shows another difference between Graphical PMI (Left) and Semantic PMI (Right). Next up is Part 2 of this topic on practical applications: how machine-readable 3D PMI is automating downstream production, which is the real power of MBD in my opinion. Step forward Van Raam, a Netherlands-based bike manufacturer for the disabled and the elderly. By modelling the real-life tension and durability of materials, a bike build can be stress-tested right within SOLIDWORKS before a prototype has even been built. Lots of models means lots of components and lots of different production methods: frame building in steel, injection moulding, casting in vacuum forming.

Try to gradually define semantic PMI to set up the stage for downstream intelligent manufacturing applications.
For example in Figure 1, we can read the handwritten lines and curves as a diameter dimension of 20 plus and minute 0.05 using our interpretation, but is this readable to an NC machine? The annotation looks identical to our eyes, which means they are at the same presentation level, but the semantic PMI on the right not only says there are 16 holes, but also associates and highlights all the correct instances, which drive CAM to machine all of them as a pattern. This family business originally set-up in 1984, turned its attention to designing bikes and tricycles specifically for a largely immobile client base, handing back the autonomy of travel to those without it.

If you have an after hours emergency, please call the San Diego Access and Crisis Line at 1 (888) 724-7240 or dial 911. Bowers and Wilkins guides are produced 80 percent faster and its graphic design team can take a breather. Uploading the bike builds to SOLIDWORKS has allowed the engineers to simplify the build by peeling back the layers of the design in a 3D framework. So busy that adding imagery to user manuals was disrupting workflows and holding up the business.
Similarly, the 3D PMI in Figure 2 is just a group of sketch lines and curves instead of real numbers or symbols, which require some serious guesswork by our eyes and brains. We can probably guess it’s really specifying all 16 holes, but it’s extremely difficult for software to tell and associate all the correct features, which consequently curbs automation.
In fact, this interpretation is so tricky that it differentiates human intelligence and machine intelligence, at least today, which is why capcha works: software recognition capability is still far behind human recognition, so capcha can prevent malicious automatic online registrations and approve real human attempts. On the flip side, massive manufacturing activities call for streamlined automations to avoid duplicate effort, reduce human errors, save time, and ensure quality.Graphical PMI relies on human interpretations, which blocks automations.
