SolidWorks Tips - How to Minimize Costly Materials in a High-Stress Environment

Minimizing use of expensive materials can greatly reduce overall cost of a design. Easier said than done! With components intended for use in a high-stress environment, designs must walk a razor's edge between functionality and reduced cost.How do you find locations to remove the material? Can you guarantee the changes will not affect performance?Traditional alternatives to minimizing design costs Traditionally, engineers had three options for reducing the use of costly materials in designs intended for high-stress environments.First, they could over-engineer components, and hope the finished component would function well in spite of the inefficient design.Second, they could go with gut instinct and experience. Not an exact science by any means, but less expensive in the short term than an endless series of prototypes.Third, develop expensive physical prototypes to field-test components. Go into mourning when prototypes fail and you're back where you started.Reduce materials s…

How to Make 3D Video Game Models

A 3d Model is a three-dimensional object you put into a video game. The most common model is that of the player in the game. But it can also be almost anything else you can imagine. Here is an overview of how you make 3D models for video games.When you make a video game most of the design is done the same way an architect would design a city or a building. It is all very static. You define the shapes of the objects then you insert textures and colors. But this is just the static world that everything happens inside. The real adventure of a video game comes when the models are inserted into the game. And if you are learning how to make a video game using some of the more common software like Reality Factory you don't have a whole lot of options for making models. This is where 3D modeling software comes in.To Make a 3D Model you need some 3D modeling softwareThere are many different modeling software applications and most of them are very suitable for making models for games.
