SW Extraction Components

SW Extraction Components

SW Extraction Components

I'm looking for ready made components for assembling in Solidworks an extraction system for a commercial boiler house installation.

RE: SW Extraction Components

COMPRESS now provides a 3D solid model feature. The solid model can be viewed from within COMPRESS (replacing the traditional 3D graphical view) and it can be exported in standard format files for use with other software, such as Solidworks, AutoCAD Inventor, FEA software, etc.

Note that many compatible CAD applications provide features to extract 2D working drawings from the solid model, and to provide dimensions, etc, for complete working drawings.

This new feature is provided as part of the basic COMPRESS functionality for all users with active SUS subscriptions.

xtract, This likely doesn't address your inquiry as COMPRESS does not provide ready-made components in a library. COMPRESS is intended for design of pressure vessels to the ASME Code. Such vessels are custom designed by the manufacturer, using COMPRESS. It seems that you are looking for a library of 'standard' pressure vessels?

RE: SW Extraction Components

Thank you Tom but yes I was looking for a Manufacturer that supplied SW models to a library like FASTTRACK CAD. Incidently It would be useful to know of any other such companies/libraries.
